Police Mag /08.01.2018
Ekin, known for its safe city technologies, has now launched its full line of mobile and versatile security products in the United States. Ekin provides police departments, airports, shopping centers, and municipalities with sophisticated, comprehensive security technology. Ekin’s award-winning mobile and fixed product offering includes: Ekin Bike Patrol, a smart patrol product for bicycles; Patrol G2, a smart patrol product for use on authorized vehicles renowned for its design and superior technology; Ekin Micro Spotter, a compact, high-resolution video recording device; and Ekin Face, facial recognition technology developed with deep learning. Information from all Ekin products across a city is collected and centrally managed using Ekin’s proprietary Red Eagle Safe City Operating System, which offers a new way of looking at city safety and surveillance.
While a city controlled by a traditional surveillance system is secure to some extent, Ekin’s smart, connected system is proven to dramatically enhance safety citywide: after employing the use of Ekin’s Safe Traffic system, Abu Dhabi police saw a 34% reduction in traffic accidents in 2014 when compared with 2013. In total, Ekin products detected over 20,000 traffic violations in Abu Dhabi in 2014. Ekin currently works with more than 20 municipalities and has built over 500 City Safety Control Centers around the world.
Ekin’s safe city products available for the first time to the U.S. market include:Orkunt Yozgat, Director of Business Development and Marketing at Ekin, said: “We are excited to extend our promise of safety and security to cities across the United States. For the past 20 years, Ekin has been dedicated to improving city safety and regulating traffic with our innovative approach to safety. After demonstrating our products starting in Texas and Florida, we look forward to partnering with local law enforcement agencies and private corporations to provide citizens with a greater sense of security.”
