Case Study: Tel Aviv Smart City – Security and Emergencies

Municipal Security Control Center

With approximately 600 security cameras located throughout the city that broadcast live, the Municipal Security Control Center is able to monitor unusual activities such as theft and damage at all times. The control center also receives information about residents reporting to the municipal call center and mobile app, and together with the cameras, the municipality is able to respond to calls efficiently and quickly dispatch the right personnel.

Municipal Security Patrol

Sela, the municipal security patrol force tasked with making sure the city is safe for its residents, business owners and visitors. The patrol operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in partnership with the Israeli police, municipal inspectors and the camera-based control center. The patrol works together with the municipal call center and mobile application.

Security cameras and panic buttons

More than 1,000 education institutions in the city now have a ‘panic button’ and an app they can use to send key information when a nursery or school is in trouble. Tel Aviv-Yafo is the first city in Israel to use both emergency and routine command and control technologies, another step in integrating increasingly advanced technology into urban life and making the city smarter .
