Choosing a security system can seem complicated, particularly when factoring in the different environmental conditions to which a camera can be subjected. It’s important to take environmental factors into consideration to make sure a camera lasts as long as it should. Below are six questions businesses should ask themselves before investing in a new surveillance system.
These explosion-proof HD cameras include a robotically welded housing; a unique patent-pending pan-tilt drive without belts, gears or pulleys; operation in extreme temperatures; 30x optical zoom with image stabilization; IR illumination; ultra-low light performance and more.
For harsh settings where the presence of gases or flammable dust can create a potentially explosive environment, this new camera from Videotec, the MAXIMUS MMX camera, features a remote optical zoom capability, a 90-degree cone of vision and H.264/AVC compression in a corrosion-proof AISI316L stainless steel housing.
This integrated server, switch and software platform is designed in a compact form factor, and the unit is ruggedized to withstand temperature conditions from -40ºC to 60ºC (-40ºF to 140ºF) without the need for additional heating or air conditioning.
In order to achieve more while reducing costs, many enterprises’ security leaders have turned to automation. By adding thermal cameras as part of a larger intrusion detection system, security departments can reduce false alarm rates and even bring operational value back to the enterprise. Off the coast of Venezuela, there is a cluster of oil platforms.
