Thermal Imaging technology is fantastic when dealing with wide open areas, complete dark areas, perimeter protection and areas which experience high frequencies of fog.
Not to be confused with Infrared illumination, the disadvantages of thermal cameras is that the images that you see are simply in black and white and no distinctive facial features or vehicle brand would be recognised.
Thermal network cameras create images based on the heat that always radiates from any object, vehicle or person. A thermal camera is less sensitive to problems with light conditions, such as shadows, backlight, darkness and even camouflaged objects; and delivers images that allow operators to detect and act on suspicious activity.
Some of the Thermal cameras have built-in Video Analytics such as intruder detection. The installation and design principals which apply to normal IP cameras, apply to thermal cameras and are often used on the same infrastructure as the CCTV.
