First CCTV system which tracks criminals and stops crime.
|PGCAM solve up to 80% of criminal cases
PGCAM is a first cloud VMS designed for 100% city coverage. Now, police can track criminals from the crime scenes to their current location. PGCAM tracks criminals from one camera to another, starting with a camera that saw an accident.
PGCAM supports 5000 brands of CCTV – mostly any camera could be connected to our cloud.
|PGCAM TRACKS CRIMINALS FROM ONE CAMERA TO ANOTHER
10 cities are already using the technology behind PGCAM
Moscow, London, Seoul, Mexico, Taiyuan, Beijing, Wuxi, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Harbin, and Chengdu are the first cities that have CCTV systems that cover most of the city and allow tracking criminals.
All of these cities are enjoying the lowest crime rates ever, while in some cases cameras now account for 80% of closed cases.
On average cities using such technology reduced street crime like robberies by 75%, and other types of crimes by at least 40%, increased crime closing rate from 34% to 80%, and around 40-80% of cases now closed by cameras, improved safety was noticed by the population of all cities.
Let’s see each city’s experience to understand the benefits of such technology.
London reduced crime by 50%
50 000 CAMERAS
70% CASES CLOSED BY CAMERAS
ONLY 20% CAMERAS ARE CONNECTED TO CLOUD
London invested $500M over 10 years to build a full coverage system with 50 000 cameras. The building of such a system dramatically changed the criminal landscape of London. 50% decrease in murders and some other types of crimes. 70% of cases are now closed with the help of CCTV.
The London system is the oldest with an average cost of camera around 1000$ and only 20% of cameras are connected to one data center. This is a huge problem – every time police should check most of the cameras manually to extract footage. Every criminal case takes weeks sometimes only because of it.
|PGCAM cameras are always connected and police get results of criminal investigation in 30 mins
ALL CAMERAS ARE ONLINE
30 MINUTES LIMIT TO FIND CRIMINAL
Our system is designed to give every camera 24/7 access to our cloud, so police or our researchers can immediately access any camera archive. If one of our cameras stops sending data to the cloud within 15 minutes we will send a technician to fix it.
Our research team has a limit to work on each case and should deliver results normally in less than 30 mins, with a maximum of 1 hour. Results consist of a list of suspected people and their current location.
Moscow now close 80% of criminal cases with help of cameras
193 000 CAMERAS
80% CASES CLOSED BY CAMERAS
HIGHEST EFFICIENCY BECAUSE COVERS EVERY DOOR
Moscow started to develop their system for about 7 years. Moscow systems consist of several types of cameras- highway and street cameras connected to the cloud and offline cameras integrated into each door in apartment complexes. Cameras integrated into each door proven their efficiency – they can identify who was entering or exiting apartments and when.
Moscow system becomes so effective that now up to 80% of criminal cases are closed with help of cameras which is the highest result in the world. Crime rates fall down by more than 70%, making Moscow one of the safest cities in the world.
|PGCAM helps to close up to 80% of criminal cases.
3 TIMES MORE EFFICIENT COVERAGE
PGCAM cameras are installed on each light pole in a city, so our system efficiently covers the city without overlaps.
We recommend cameras which have wide-angle lenses, so they cover not only streets but also entrances of buildings.
This is as proven by the Moscow experience as the key element to identify and track criminals efficiently.
Such efficient cover with our ability to track criminals from one entrance to their current location allows us to promise up to 80% closing rate for any criminal case just by information from cameras.
Other criminalistic tools can further increase this rate.
Mexico city build an expensive and ineffective system
30 000 CAMERAS
2-7% CASES CLOSED BY CAMERAS
LOW EFFICIENCY DUE TO ABSENCE OF TRACKING
HIGHEST COST PER CAMERA
Mexico has installed 30 000 cameras which cover only around 70% of the city and don’t allow tracking. The system sends video streams from each camera to the server. The whole system is very expensive because each camera needs a 2 MBs connection to the server and this connection cost around 25$ per month (optic or mobile), so the whooping the total cost of using 750$k per month just for communication.
Saving this amount of data also leads to 100$k cost in the server capacities every month, so Mexico is limited to save recordings only for one week.
Mexico City did not achieve 100% coverage and the system doesn’t allow tracking of criminals, so only 2-7% of cases are closed by cameras.
Also, Mexico spends more than 2300$ on each camera, which the highest cost per camera in the world.
|PGCAM is the most cost-efficient system on the planet
20 TIMES CHEAPER
ONLY 100$ PER CAMERA
PGCAM is installed on existing light poles, so our system needs very little time for installation.
For each city, we develop special pole connectors which allow fast and cheap installation.
The average cost of a camera including installation is less than 100$, which is 20 times cheaper than in Mexico City.
PGCAM system efficiently minimizes traffic and the cost of running the system every month.
PGCAM system is built to minimize the cost of running the system each month.
Cameras connecting to the server by Wi-Fi mech network consisting of high-powered Wi-Fi routers and ethernet connections.
The average cost of connection for each camera is lower than 3$ per month including data center services. This allows even cities with budget constraints to use this kind of system
Seoul become the safest city in the world
50 000 CAMERAS
ONLY 800 CASES PER YEAR
20 DIFFERENT SYSTEMS IN PLACE
SEOUL has officially become the safest city in the world by installing 50 000 cameras over ten years.
Only 800 criminal cases are registered in 10M city in one year.
The only problem is that while the city was building that system it was created by cameras of different vendors with different interfaces. Some parts of cities can use one system- another part is another. All of this leads to creating an additional integrated control center, which gathers all data additionally which is very costly.
|PGCAM integrates current city cameras into one cloud.

One of the biggest advantages of PGCAM that we can add any cameras from any manufacturers to our system.
We can develop special interfaces for current cameras, so all cameras are connected to our system and capture data.
We can aggregate any cameras – public, highway, even cameras from private companies – so the city will need fewer funds for 100% coverage.
CRIME IS $3.4 TRILLION PROBLEM
Lower crime levels have a tremendous impact on the economy. For example, every murder case costs around $2 million to solve. It includes the cost of the life of the murdered person, the cost of the investigation, and the cost of putting the killer into prison for 14 years or more. In the US, murders alone cost the national economy $32Bn annually.
Researchers believe that CRIME IN THE US COST MORE THAN $3.41 TRILLION annually – 3 times more than all military spending.
PGCAM is an ESG-minded and social-oriented business.
We create safety, a benefit that every member of society can enjoy.
All of the cameras should work for at least 10 years. It’s possible to easily install new components on-site and new software via our cloud.
We’re open to any cooperation with cities, the federal government, and companies who agree that our mission of making cities safer is vital. We strongly believe that the future lies in preventing crime – and our systems are the perfect tool for it.
Want to see PGCAM working in your city right now?
We’re looking for cities that are interested in installing test zones and seeing how our system performs.
We will install a test zone FOR FREE that will greatly increase security and decrease the number of criminal cases.
