Officers spend a significant amount of time writing incident reports, sometimes up to three or four hours a day. Deploying MPS Power Sentries at accident-prone intersections saves time by providing accurate, impartial information that can be used at the scene to process traffic incidents efficiently. With recorded images in hand, officers instantly have most of the data they need for along with a video clip to download that shows exactly what transpired before, during and after the event. Video is solid evidence that can be included with the report and forwarded to prosecutors and insurance companies.
Many cities could benefit from traffic camera systems, but the high installation costs involved in laying cables to connect cameras to a server are beyond their budgets. The MPS Power Sentry is a smart solution because the units tap directly into a pole’s power source—no digging or expensive cable installation required. They also can be easily moved to different locations to accommodate changes in traffic patterns that might occur with new construction and development.
Each Power Sentry functions as an independent camera surveillance system; they can be miles apart and yet their recordings are accessed via a common video management system. If your organization already uses a specific brand of camera or video platform, we can integrate them with your new Power Sentries. As always, the built-in MPStatus system provides situational awareness and live notifications. It continuously monitors the operating status of each unit and consolidates this information in one easy to use dashboard application.
