How small businesses can benefit from thermal cameras
Thermal cameras from Prama Hikvision are affordable and designed for perimeter protection and fire prevention
Thermal technology is possibly the most exciting technology right now. It works on the principle that objects above the absolute zero (-273°C) emit some amount of thermal radiation or heat. Due to varying intensities of heat radiation, people, animals, and even inanimate objects can be clearly observed using infrared technology, even in the absence of light.
In recent years, with the rapid development of thermal detector technology, coupled with the popularisation of the use of thermal products in the application side, the cost of using thermal technology has dropped sharply. So, can thermal cameras be used in small and medium business (SMB) markets, or even home security?
For SMBs users, preventing intrusion is one of the most important measures in protecting property. Business owners and operators are usually more focused on alarm accuracy and the ability of a security system to monitor after business hours, most commonly at night. Additionally, increased operating costs due to false alarms is also a hot item for SMBs. The most common false alarms are caused by small animals and falling leaves. Here, thermal equipment is already making life easier for many users. Thermal cameras integrated with deep learning algorithms can classify people and vehicles, alerting security staff only when these two objects enter the monitoring area to reduce false alarms.
Therefore, thermal cameras, free from special lighting requirements, can and should be applied in a wider variety of scenarios since they can easily do the job needed. They have strong environmental adaptability and can bolster perimeter protection with high accuracy detection in unpredictable lighting or bad weather.
With breakthroughs in imaging, algorithms, and intelligent applications, Prama Hikvision has introduced a new affordable thermal camera, which is designed for perimeter protection and fire prevention. This thermal camera is specifically designed for short-range monitoring – up to 70 m – so it is really best-suited for perimeter protection in SMB markets such as residential areas, office buildings, and factories. When a target enters the surveillance range, an automatic alert can be triggered to inform security personnel – a process unaffected by light or weather conditions. Most importantly, this thermal camera series opens up new opportunities for SMB users, both in terms of affordable prices and outstanding performance.
