According to the project of Building a centralized surveillance camera system of Ho Chi Minh City for the period of 2019-2025, the city will install about 10,000 intelligent surveillance cameras with a cost of more than VND1,600 billion. This cost if converted into USD is greater than $69 million, and will be nearly $7,000/1camera.
Of course, this $7,000 is not to buy a camera, it will cover the cost of the attached infrastructure. I don't know in their estimates, does this $7,000 have operating and maintenance costs? _(I think there are no operating and maintenance costs, because this is a variable over time.)_
At this price, even with the attached infrastructure and equipment, it is still an extremely high cost.
It should be noted that Vietnam is home to many of the most expensive public works in the world, while the scale and duration of use is much lower. _(See an example about road construction costs, use the translate tool)_
Moreover, according to the statistics of Ho Chi Minh City Police, as of August 2018, the whole city now has more than 37,000 surveillance cameras under the management of the People's Committee and the District and Commune Police. These systems are mostly monitored, managed and operated by police forces, helping to strengthen and support the area monitoring, urban order management, prevention of social evils and theft. And also have about 100 other cameras to serve the measurement of flow and circulation speed.
Under the plan “Building a surveillance camera system in HCMC in the 2019-2025 period,” the 10,000 cameras will be installed along streets in the city. Of the total, some 1,000-3,000 cameras will be installed at prime sites and managed by the HCMC Police, news site Motthegioi reported.
