Well - if it's built using HP gear (the same people who brought you "HP Pavilion"), then it will not only be unreliable, it will be ineffective

And one the one hand the article says "Surveillance technology that uses high definition cameras and software that can put names to faces and owners to cars is coming to Auckland.", then on the other, it says "The system will be used to monitor traffic flows, vandalism and safety. We will not be using any capability which identifies faces or number plates." - ?????

"We are not installing new cameras, this is a back end system for the approximately 800 cameras we have access to covering intersections, railway and busway stations. "

In fact....AK council are cutting funding for cameras
