Hikvision Integrator Dakota Surveillance Installs Cameras that Capture Live Feed of South Dakota Mural Painting
Hikvision integrator Dakota Surveillance installed surveillance cameras that captured live video coverage of the acclaimed Australian artist Guido van Helten painting the side of a grain elevator in Faulkton, S.D. over the summer.
Van Helten has been commissioned for public artworks across the world, including Sydney, Australia, Jacksonville, Fla. and Helsinki, Finland.
Originally from Australia, Faulkton resident David Hedt had connections to the artist, who painted a mural in Hedt’s hometown of Brim, Australia. The mural helped increase tourism to the small town of 100 people. Faulkton’s mayor, Slade Roseland, hopes the grain elevator painting will do the same for his town.
In the announcement, Mayor Roseland expressed his excitement to showcase van Helten’s work: “It’s extremely important to the community because the sky is the limit for the tourism boost—not only for people coming to see the finished project but also to come and watch as he’s painting it. On a broader spectrum, it also gives us a chance to showcase the other great aspects of our town and all that Faulkton has to offer.”
Dakota Surveillance, formerly AgriVideo, is a locally-owned and operated video surveillance provider based out of Faulkton, S.D. Among other benefits, installing Hikvision cameras enables its customers to better manage their herd during calving season, or keep an eye on their home when they are out of town.
The mural is now complete. Dakota Surveillance continues to host a live feed of the artwork on its website. View the live feed here.
