Also Axis' Partners are very, very excited about this......;))))))))))
I think it's a little unfair to paint this picture of Axis, when all companies in the industry would be equally excited. Literally putting words in their mouth and making them sound like bigots. How am I supposed to believe you when you say this is an objective, unbiased website?!. I am now skeptical of all your reviews and opinions. You may think you're just having fun and trying to be entertaining, what's the big deal?. But, your influencing a large crowd of people and have planted this seed in people's minds that Axis, in particular, is greedy and only looking to take advantage of situations. If you're going to write these goofy and opinionated columns, please either make then apply to all companies or none. I don't work for Axis and don't only sell Axis, but I can even see this.
Axis partners are seeing Axis more as a competitor than a partner these days.
I'm convinced the conversation in Lund has become about selling the entire solution.
The release of their NVR & VMS in North America has already prompted me to begin bringing other camera partners into opportunities I've developed.
Sounds like at least 10 cameras per building. 25,000 buildings x 10 cameras x avg. cam cost = ?
According to Dubai Police, owners of buildings, residential and offices, will have to comply with this new rule. The CCTV cameras and security systems to be installed have to be in accordance with specifications set by Dubai Police. Major Arif Al Janahi, Director, Protection Systems Department, Dubai Police said: “Landlords of 25,000 buildings still have to install surveillance cameras and security system in their buildings. He added that fines will be imposed on those not complying. Major Al Janahi stated that this action comes under Act No 10 of 2014 and amendments to provisions of Law No 24 of 2008 on service providers and security regulations. He emphasised that several meetings have been held with owners and real estate companies where they were informed of all details with the explanation of all required specifications.
He said landlords can use one of 650 companies registered by Dubai Police to install the requirements. Explaining some of the specifications Major Al Janahi said the CCTV cameras, according to the law, should be stable, fixed and must have clear vision. He added that they must be installed at all entrances to the facility where the picture of a person entering can be clearly seen. Also, surveillance cameras are to be fixed at all emergency exits and that lead in and out of the facility. Lobby areas and on sections leading to the elevators are also to be covered by camera. Reception areas, entrances to health clubs, parking entrances and exits are also to be CCTVed – the latter requiring the number plates of cars to be clearly visible.
The issue here isn't the demand to the landlord on the requirement but the washy nature of the design spec. Major Al Janahi Says you must have cameras and they must be stable, fixed and clear vision this means nothing. Is that a HD camera? Clear vision? Is it 10 cameras, I think you could sit on the fence and do it with 4.. you won't be able to "recognise" anyone but you would have "detection" which is clearly visible.. And there lies the issue.. I think Axis and no doubt others might dream of thousands of sales of new cameras, I wonder it it might be more of a win for the happy sunshine bargain basement cctv company...
This will end up being a DVR/NVR Analogue business.
With the Chinese products flooding the market - each of these building will be a $600-$900 project including installation and commissioning.
I can’t see Axis taking advantage of this...
example of the daily spam mail and the alternative prices:
So, it looks that the market that is going to have the highest profit thanks to this law is the market of waste disposal....;))
Now I expect to read a new press release "MHT Praises Mandatory Surveillance!".....)))

as per Law No. (24) of 2008, recorder should be digital, with LAN connectivity, recorder should be able to deliver live display at 25fps. recording should be able to recored with not less than 3fps at 2 CIF. The camera resolution must be no less than 420 TVL for colour and 480 TVL for monochrome cameras, or the equivalent pixels
i don't think land lord has a budget to install high end CCTV system, and because it is mandatory for sure they will go with any cheap product, unless dubai police change the specifications.
Chip all the hippies and it makes things easier, for sure. Perhaps relying on artificial requirements is not a scalable business model.
Are they fixin to have all the buildings tied into some colossus monitoring/collecting station downtown? That makes a big difference the way I see things.
If they would be normally under the thumb of the building owner, I don't get the big brother panty bunching. Most folk I know, (these parts), expect and would rightly welcome that your apartment complexes of a certain size have cameras. Dare say that say most of em do already, even in the good ol us of a.
The cost to the owner might be worth hollering over, but thats just same as any other rigamarole, and if the good people of Dubai are hunky dory with it, then whats the beef?
Strike all that if them be aiming for state controlled repression. But I dont recollect anybody sayin that.
