A network surveillance camera installed by Fluidmesh Networks and Abel Electronics in the downtown area of Birmingham, Mich.
Fluidmesh Networks recently announced that they have provided the police department in Birmingham, Mich., with a city-wide video surveillance system.
Fluidmesh, along with Abel Electronics, began working on the project last spring after Birmingham Chief of Police Richard Patterson decided that the police department needed a surveillance system to aid responding officers.
Not only does the system offer a view of a potential crime scene, but it also helps control traffic flow in the downtown area.
In a statement issued by the company, Patterson said that "by using a direct line of site," Fluidmesh has allowed the department "greater flexibility" in where they can place their cameras and repeaters.
