The Kochi city police will launch Central Intrusion Monitoring System (CIMS), a smart security system very soon as part of strengthening the surveillance and security over high-asset buildings and commercial establishments like banks, jewellery shops and treasuries with the help of modern technology. To be implemented by state-run Keltron, the project will enable round-the-clock surveillance of the building where the systems are installed and alert the police immediately in case of any burglary attempt along with live video feeds of the location and contact details of property owner.

Marketing head at Keltron S Gopakumar said the establishments where CIMS was installed would be directly linked to the police control rooms 24x7, and motion detecting sensor and CCTV camera of the system will alert police in the event of any suspicious incident. The system is programmed to identify suspicious activities like burglary.

“The base server will be at the police headquarters and there will be a separate team to monitor the system. They will pass the alerts and related information to respective police station. The project, which is a first-of-its-kind in the state, will be implemented in Kochi by July on an experimental basis and the police department plans to expand it to other cities in future,” he said.
