Achieving security awareness around perimeters and outdoor areas comes down to timely, credible alerts with detail to respond appropriately to the level of threat. Knowing the nature and location of an intrusion is the key to forming an effective response. While there are a number of options available for perimeter security, thermal video analytic cameras have become a strong contender for best-of-breed in this area. Thermal video analytic cameras operate day or night, and can “see” what the eye would miss, even over large outdoor areas in complete darkness.
Recent developments in thermal camera image processing take automated perimeter security to a whole new level with unparalleled video analytic accuracy and clearer thermal images at mainstream prices. Thermal video analytic cameras now operate among environmental factors such as rain, humidity, fog and bright sun, which yielded poor images, nuisance alerts and mis-detects in the past.
