Question
Dear Frank

Do you feel by Fixing Wireless CCTV cameras in Skywalks and controlled through Police Stations can enhance security?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
This is a good idea, but would require the transmitting equipment for the signals to be compatible with what they're currently using.  There are a lot of solutions out there.  You would need a stable power source for the cameras and transmitters.  Traffic cameras in our area use solar panels to charge batteries and in areas where the trees are too dense to get sufficient light, the power from adjacent street lights could be adapted.
