Keep eye on home while out and about

NEW household security technologies attracted attention at the 9th Shanghai International Exhibition on Public Safety and Security at the Shanghai Exhibition Center yesterday.

One device by China Telecom allows parents to use a 3G cell phone when they are not home to monitor their children, an exhibition employee told the Xinmin Evening News.

With a video camera and a 3G handset, a user can log onto the Internet and has the camera's video footage displayed on his or her mobile.

The system is now mostly used in public security projects, traffic control and banks, but also has household and office applications, staff told the newspaper.

Another exhibit is a photo identification system. It can identify a person by scanning his or her face and then search an online database for a match.

The system makes a match based on information such as the distance between a person's eyes. It will sound its alarm if the person is wanted by police.

Through the high-definition camera and intelligent identification technology, the machine can also be used to identify car plates and human behavior, and can be used to monitor college entrance examinations.

The three-day exhibition ends tomorrow.
