Thermal Imaging and Security

Learn about how thermal cameras can be used for security

How do thermal cameras work in a security situation?

Thermal Imaging Network Monitoring Systems are based on using network protocols WAN and/or LAN. It can function as a separate monitoring system, or be incorporated into a variety of already existing systems within a facility; this includes online monitoring systems, digital image monitoring systems and security fire alarm systems. These systems generally consist of dual-channel, all-weather monitoring cameras (including high-performance infrared imaging with visual CCD camera) and the corresponding network of computers. The system uses advanced computer data compression and network transmission technologies. Using standard RJ45 Ethernet network cable, free level or central control monitoring can be enabled (one-to-more and more-to-one inspection). Only one network cable is needed to change the camera settings and features, which include over-temperature alarm, auto-video recording and automatically generating fault reports while monitoring the daily work in the distance. Innovative image fusion technology allows users to combine the infrared image and the CCD image aiding to identify the fault position rapidly.

The system is equipped with powerful real-time analysis software. Its functions could meet a variety of online real-time monitoring and scientific experiments for different users. In addition, the software is customized, and the software development kit SDK is provided to the user for secondary development.

In what type of surveillance areas should there be infrared cameras?

Night and day, thermal imaging systems detect intruders where conventional CCTV systems fail. Requiring no external lighting, thermal imaging provides vivid, high-contrast video of intruders, even when hidden by obscurants such as fog, smoke, steam, or lack of ambient light. This makes thermal imaging ideal for in-plant surveillance, perimeter monitoring, and high-value asset protection

Infrared cameras can be used to monitor extended areas of open water, shoreline, ports, harbours, and dock facilities.

Combine long-range and mid-range thermal imaging systems for comprehensive surveillance of nuclear power plants, airports, bridges, petrochemical facilities, pipelines, and cargo terminals. Maintain perimeter integrity with a network of camera systems that provides uninterrupted detection of intruders 24 hours a day. Select from a wide range of handheld and platform-mounted systems ideal for factories, airports, commercial complexes, and private residences
