HANGZHOU, China–( BUSINESS WIRE )–August 24, 2022–
For the first time in history, Antarctica has a video security project, developed by Dahua Technology: the company donated 15 security cameras, which were installed on scientific grounds on the “white continent” to enable 24-hour footage, to increase contact and liaison with field scientists and improve knowledge of local fauna and meteorology.

Dahua not only donated equipment, but also developed it specifically for this project, considering that it is a very cold, remote area with little connectivity. The new project fills a critical need, as the region previously lacked security cameras linking the general base to Argentina’s capital.
“The most difficult part of the project was to get specific cameras that can withstand the low temperatures and climatic conditions that the region suffers, to provide an optimal result based on their needs,” explained engineer José Varas, BDM of Dahua Technology. .
This project is a closed circuit television (CCTV) solution that can handle extreme weather conditions. It allows all cameras installed in Argentine Antarctica to be viewed in real time at the headquarters of the Joint Antarctic Command from an external screen, paving the way for a deeper understanding of scientific research in the region.
“With a temperature of -30°C that made it difficult to fix the equipment due to the intense wind, adding to the difficulty of using double-handled tools and the constant rotation of technicians,” said Sebastián Mirich, President of Mirich Electronic Security . , which was responsible for the installation. “However, the installation was a success and the cameras are working and withstanding the harsh and demanding Antarctic climate,” he added.
“Besides increasing connectivity and showing more closely the activities that are carried out there, such as various environmental studies and assessment of the growth of flora and fauna, it also seeks to provide greater security on the runway whenever an aircraft arrives. something essential to continue exploration in this area,” added Julia Anschütz, MarCom Manager of Dahua Technology.
This project is key to supporting positive development and growth in the parts of the region that need it most. Beyond contributing to ecological research and sustainable development in Antarctica, the project represents another step in Dahua’s commitment to integrate digital intelligence technology into environmental protection, protection and advancement.
