The Statue of Liberty National Monument has added a state-of-the-art surveillance system that includes Israeli technology. Total Recall Corporation, a video-centric security technology provider specializing in surveillance solutions, brought together nine top technology vendors including BriefCam.

The award-winning IP-based, digital video surveillance solution offered by Total Recall is being used by the US Park Police, National Park Service and the Department of Interior to enhance public safety and improve operational efficiencies at the recently renovated Statue of Liberty National Monument and Liberty Island.

Israel’s Briefcam was chosen for its unique Video Synopsis software solution that enables law enforcement and security personnel to review hours of surveillance video in minutes.

The current surveillance deployment marks the first time an all-digital surveillance system has been installed at the monument. The Statue of Liberty reopened to the public on Independence Day, July 4, 2013, following eight months of renovation and repairs due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy.

According to the National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy, approximately four million people visit the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island each year.
