When Detection Matters: The SightLogix Difference
SightLogix has a long and successful history helping organizations solve outdoor security problems at sites where detection really matters. It’s our legacy and our mission to deliver an easy-to-deploy, highly reliable smart thermal video camera system that provides real-time, actionable information about outdoor security events.
Here’s How We Do It
Thermal Video – The Better Detector
Since security starts with detection, the alert must be accurate. Because thermal cameras “see” heat rather than light, they’re great human detectors in the outdoors. They see through the dark, bright sun, reflections off water, and bad weather. They also eliminate the complexity of adding lighting, and cover huge areas with a single device.
The Benefit of Video Processing
SightSensors detect intruders with high reliability outdoors through tremendous levels of video processing at the network edge. This lets the built-in video analytics maximize the full dynamic range of the thermal imager, and determine temperature differences down to 1/20th of degree – recognizing intruders all the time, and all conditions.
The Value of Extended Range
The same processing used for accurate detection also gives SightLogix cameras extended range and coverage, automatically detecting human-sized targets at ranges that can exceed hundreds of meters, reducing complexity.
Reducing False Alerts from Animals
Smart cameras are designed to detect movement, but outside, everything moves. While this can trigger excessive nuisance alerts for some systems, SightSensors are able to achieve a high level of detection reliability through built-in geo-registration. For example, a small animal near the camera looks much larger than a man at 300 meters away. With geo-registration, SightSensors ignore the animal while detecting the person, so you’re not overwhelmed with nuisance alarms or suffer missed intruders.
Reducing False Alarms from Camera Shake
Smart cameras are naturally impacted by wind or vibrations, making it hard to detect movement when the whole field of view is also moving from camera shake. Without image stabilization, these applications can be overwhelmed by nuisance alarms or worse, outright missed intrusions. SightSensors automatically stabilize the video before analytic rules are applied, reducing false alarms or missed intrusions from movement.
Designed for Easy Use and Fast Deployment
SightLogix gives you web-based configuration, automatic calibration, one-click video analytics, guided set-up steps with tooltips and streamlined connection to third-party systems, reducing the complexity and the technical problems of set up and deployment.
Combining Detection and Assessment in One
While SightSensor thermal cameras provide high accuracy and reliability, sometimes you need to verify in color so you can make a fast and informed response. SightLogix gives you the best of both worlds by combining reliable thermal detection with color video assessment. This is available for your applications in the following ways:
- The SightSensor HD and the SightSensor TC use thermal for detection, and a high-definition color imager for assessment.
- The SightLogix SightTracker automatically positions a third-party PTZ camera onto the GPS location of an alarm detected by the SightSensor, making the target large enough to reliably identify for your assessment and response requirements.
