Effective Use Of CCTV And Thermal IR Cameras For Perimeter Surveillance

A combination of thermal infrared and CCTV cameras can provide a cost-effective solution for perimeter intruder detection and surveillance. Experts from FIRSTSIGHT VISION can offer advice on the most appropriate configuration for the particular application. Key to optimizing the system is the use of thermal infrared technology for detecting intruders and then using CCTV for identification purposes, as an alternative to the more expensive option of using many CCTV cameras equipped with motion detectors.
