Achieving accurate perimeter security with a thermal video camera comes down to knowing the nature and location of an intrusion, allowing an effective response. While there are a number of options available for perimeter security, using a thermal video camera with video analytics has become a strong contender for best-of-breed in this area. Thermal video analytic […]
When outdoor conditions are ideal, outdoor thermal cameras can “see” what the eye cannot, even in complete darkness. Problems occur when rain, humidity, and other outdoor conditions bring background temperatures close to the temperature of objects which represent security concern, such as a person entering an unauthorized area. When background temperatures closely match the heat of a […]
We’ve added narration to the SightLogix perimeter intrusion detection system overview, shown below. Each video panel displays the view from a visible, wide angle and thermal perimeter security camera, while the bottom right shows a PTZ camera automatically steered to zoom and follow detected targets. The target’s location is simultaneously displayed onto the topology map on […]
When it comes to protecting outdoor areas, security professionals often have two main concerns: Not being aware of the risks that are lurking, and not knowing the place and nature of an intrusion should one occur. Intelligent video cameras address the first concern by leveraging the inherent strengths of automated systems and people. Smart cameras […]
Camera movement impacts outdoor video detection as a source of video analytic nuisance alarms. Without stabilization, video intrusion detection systems for rail security, airport perimeters, border security, seaports and other large outdoor facilities can be overwhelmed by nuisance alarms or misdetects.
The key to eliminating nuisance alarms for outdoor intelligent video is to use technology designed for outdoor applications rather than misapplying video analytics intended for more controlled indoor surroundings.
