In the past decades, due to global warming and dramatic climate change, the frequency of severe natural disasters been increasing. Floods in central Europe, earthquakes in Haiti and Chili, hurricanes in USA, and a tsunami in South Asia led to great losses of lives and properties. Millions of people died in the disasters and many places are still under reconstruction.


As a result, it is important to develop more effective emergency plans for natural disasters. hiQview IP Surveillance can help authorities monitor potentially dangerous areas in order to take prompt actions to lower damages caused by natural disasters, and most importantly, to save lives.











Here we take prevention of riverbank collapse and bridge collapse as an example:

Riverbank Collapse

The collapse of riverbanks causes serious damages to people’s lives, businesses and properties. Experts continue finding effective methods to control floods. By employing hiQview IP surveillance systems at certain locations, riverbank monitoring can be easier and more accurate. With various resolutions 5MP / 3MP / 2MP / Full HD / MegaPixel IP cameras, High Efficiency Network Video Recorder (NVR), friendly Central Management System (CMS), and intelligent image analysis, hiQview produces high quality images and is easy to manage from different locations. Therefore, abnormal water levels and changes of riverbanks can be detected beforehand. Then authorities are able to make excavations to diminish injuries or loss of life property and businesses.

Collapse of Bridge

In 2007, the bridge over Mississippi river in Minneapolis collapsed during rush hour. Dozens of cars and their occupants plunged into the river and caused 4 deaths, 79 injured, 20 missing. 45 people also died because a bridge collapsed in the north Indian industrial hub of Kota in 2009, not to mention the loss of lives caused by bridge collapses in floods, hurricanes and earthquakes. hiQview IP Surveillance can help governments prevent accidents caused by bridge collapse. Firstly, IP surveillance can be wireless and set up at the any location. Secondly, the monitored images can be accessed anywhere, anytime. Moreover, these high quality images help professionals discover potential dangers such as pier corrosion, metal fatigue or cracks. Therefore, it is suitable for monitoring bridges and observing abnormalities. The earlier the abnormalities are found, the fewer damages and losses will be incurred. Ultimately, people’s lives and properties are better protected.
