The Milford (CT) Redevelopment and Housing Partnership is successfully using IQinVision HD megapixel cameras to improve quality of life, increase safety, and streamline administration throughout their extensive housing projects.
In 2007, the Speaker of the Connecticut House of Representatives, who had grown up in public housing, initiated an effort to improve security at the state’s subsidized housing developments. Anthony J. Vasiliou, Executive Director for the Milford Redevelopment and Housing Partnership, offered to do a video surveillance pilot project for the state. Vasiliou explained, “The US Housing and Urban Development Department requires an annual plan. In our plan, we set out to install and expand video surveillance so that our residents would feel safer. When people feel safe, they want to move into our developments and then they want to stay in place. That’s good for them and it’s good for the housing authority.”
