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 that were installed in scientific bases on the “white continent” to allow 24-hour recordings, increase contact and connectivity with scientists on place and improve knowledge of local fauna and meteorology.

Dahua not only donated devices, but also developed them specifically for this project, given that this is a very cold, remote area with little connectivity. The new project meets a critical need, as the region previously lacked security cameras that connect the common base to Argentina’s capital.
“The most difficult part of the project was to procure the specific cameras that can cope with the low temperatures and climatic conditions that the region suffers in order to offer an optimal result based on their needs,” explained engineer Jose 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 Antarctic Joint Command from an external screen, paving the way for a deeper understanding of scientific research in the region.
“With a temperature of -30°C, which made it difficult to fix the devices due to the strong wind, added to the difficulty of handling tools with double gloves and the constant rotation of technicians,” said Sebastian Mirich, president of Mirich Electronic Security, which was in charge of the installation. “However, the installation was a success and the cameras are working and withstanding the harsh and demanding Antarctic climate,” he added.
“In addition to increasing connectivity and showing more closely the activities going on there, such as various environmental studies and assessment of flora and fauna growth, it also aims to ensure greater security on the runway every time it arrives aircraft, something fundamental to continue to explore in this field,” added Julia Anschütz, Dahua Technology’s MarCom Manager.
This project is key to supporting positive development and growth in the parts of the region that need it most. In addition to contributing to environmental research and sustainable development in Antarctica, the project represents another step in Dahua’s commitment to integrating digital intelligence technology into environmental protection, protection and advancement.
