Ireland National Children's Hospital Chooses Hikvision End-to-End With Facial Recognition

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Dec 05, 2019

The world's most expensive hospital project ever, the New Children's Hospital in Ireland, has chosen an all-Hikvision surveillance system including specialized facial recognition cameras, IPVM has found.

Privacy experts and an Irish politician raised serious concerns about this to IPVM, due to the sensitivity of deploying facial recognition in a children's hospital and the use of Hikvision cameras given its recent human rights sanctions and China government control.

The NCH, which is currently under construction in Dublin, has already attracted controversy for its spiraling price tag which now stands at $2 billion.

In this report, IPVM examines:

  • NCH Background/Scope
  • Ireland Hikvision Scrutiny On Parliament Cameras
  • FOI Request Reveals Hikvision Cameras/Equipment
  • Integrator: Stanley Security
  • No Further Contract Details
  • NCH Says Face Rec Details "Not Yet Been Decided"
  • "Less than 3%" of Cameras Face Rec Model"
  • Privacy Experts: Facial Recognition Cameras in Children's Hospital "Alarming"
  • Concerns Over Using Hikvision Given Recent Human Rights Sanctions
