Expand your business security and efficiency with advanced surveillance solutions. Avigilon offers a wide range of camera models to meet all your business needs. In this blog, we’re highlighting their thermal infrared imagery cameras. 

Thermal infrared imagery is often included in high-end surveillance cameras to better monitor movement in dark environments. The advanced technology uses infrared radiations that ultimately form a map of temperature distribution to provide valuable surveillance information. With so many diverse applications of thermal imaging technology, it has become a popular solution for many growing businesses. 

Read on to discover the top 3 reasons your company in Houston, TX, needs IR temperature detection technology. 


Advanced Surveillance 

Get reliable surveillance on your property even in the worst of conditions. Avigilon’s thermal infrared imagery cameras don’t rely on light reflection to provide imaging. Instead, the infrared technology uses temperature to detect movement of people and vehicles making them ideal in areas that are partly camouflaged (say shrubbery around your perimeter), those with low lighting, and even in absolute darkness. 

Not only are thermal imagery cameras great for low-light environments, but they have a longer range than traditional cameras. By using these models in long-range perimeter environments, you reduce the number of cameras and surveillance feeds on your property. 

Non-Invasive Inspections 

Thermal infrared imagery cameras also pick up infrared energy from the surface of an object. Reading the temperature of certain machinery may be enough to anticipate maintenance issues. This non-invasive monitoring reduces downtime. Instead of stopping the machines for a routine inspection, you can simply use the temperature detection camera

There is no need for any pre-inspection work that can be time-consuming. With thermal imaging, it is possible to detect faults in the machinery at an early stage rather than when the machine entirely breaks down, which helps you save money. 

You could say that thermal imaging is the new standard for predictive maintenance. 

Insurance Discounts

Temperature detection cameras predict equipment failure while providing better 24/7 surveillance of your entire property. With such advanced features equipped at your facility, you can mitigate employee and workplace safety risks. And most insurance companies factor these elements into account when offering a policy. So, with thermal imagery, you can expect insurance discounts and significantly reduce some of your overhead costs.
