There’s no denying it: bad stuff happens at night.
Whether we’re talking about terrorists crossing borders, or burglars jumping the fence into your back yard, nighttime is the right time for the poop to hit the paddles. But thermal security cameras even out the odds by giving homeowners and security professionals alike the power to see clearly in total darkness.
Accepted throughout the industry as the best 24-hour visual surveillance imaging solutions available, thermal security cameras are vital tools in securing homes, corporate campuses, and industrial facilities. Not to mention their role in secure borders, airports, sea ports, nuclear facilities, and other critical infrastructure installations.
No matter what you need to see, or where you need to see it from, thermal security cameras let you see clearly, even through smoke, dust, and light fog.
NIGHT AND DAY
Thermal security cameras have been the best nighttime security imaging solution for years. Until just the last couple of years, however, they’ve just been too expensive to be a viable component for residential security. But the last few years have seen the cost of high-quality thermal security cameras come down dramatically, with models now being available for as little as $3,000, greatly expanding their use around the security industry in general, and in the residential and personal security fields in particular.
But the cost of buying a thermal camera is only part of the story. Thermal security cameras have three other advantages that make them worthy investments for even home security use: they don’t require any support infrastructure, they provide true 24/7 operational imaging, and they give you the time and advanced warning you need to take appropriate action.
