Securing Critical Site Using Smart Camera’s Thermal Detection And Colour Assessment

SightLogix, the technology leader for smart thermal cameras, introduced the SightSensor TC product line, which adds high-definition visible colour to thermal detection cameras.

The smart camera uses an ideal outdoor intrusion sensor – thermal video – to detect targets with high accuracy in darkness, rain, and snow. An integrated HD visible imager provides colour video assessment. With powerful onboard video processing, SightSensor TC analytics maximize the full dynamic range of the thermal imager to detect intruders with great accuracy. The camera also provides a clear, high-contrast thermal image that can be used for assessment. Both thermal and colour streams are viewable through a wide range of third-party VMS systems.

The camera’s thermal and visible imagers are optically aligned to create a rapid, real-time assessment tool, unlike other dual-imager security cameras. With the red alarm box on both thermal and visible streams, users are able to attain comprehensive details about the intrusion and can make a quick and informed response.

There are economic benefits to SightSensor TC as well. Long-range and wide area detection means fewer cameras are needed to protect large outdoor areas. And combining two imagers in one device means one camera on the pole instead of two, with a single network drop, one mounting bracket, and simpler installation overall.
