It is challenging to detect potential intruders or smugglers in total darkness or in adverse weather conditions. Thermal cameras are a perfect a human detector; they can see over the large distances typical of a perimeter application; and will ignore all the lighting problems that trigger false alerts for visible cameras. They detect intruders in bright sun, complete darkness, and poor weather, day and night.
Of course, despite having come a long a way in providing a very good black and white image with visual details all day and night, thermal cameras are not able to provide the same level of details to match a visible PTZ camera. This is why the best perimeter intrusion detection systems combine thermal for detection with visible for alarm assessment.
Hope-Wish thermal alarm systems help border control professionals meet the demands they face at night and in other poor visibility conditions by providing unmatched perimeter intrusion detection. Long range Security border surveillance systems are deployed in the world’s harshest environments and can be applied to increase the ability to detect unlawful border activity.
