These include a big number of centres, shops, establishments, government departments, public institutions, mosques, hospitals, schools, hotels, rest houses, jewelry shops, villas, as well as residential towers and buildings

These cameras keep an eye on every nook of the emirate around the clock as part of an integrated smart system. The cameras have helped cut crime rates, the officer added.

They have been installed in 16,867 buildings in the emirate as part of the ‘Himaya’ (protection) system. The Himaya system will (eventually) be connected with the radar and geographic information systems, visual early warning connectivity, and automatic number-plate recognition systems.
