Learn More About Our Thermal Cameras Range
Our IP range offers products suitable for those new to IP and the experienced installer. Direct plug and play with PoE means flexibility, performance and easy installation.
Thermal cameras, which do not require a light source, are excellent for providing enhanced coverage in diverse environments, such as those in harsh conditions or extreme darkness. In addition, thermal cameras have long range detection and temperature measurement capabilities, allowing them to be used in conjunction with visible light cameras to achieve all-weather, comprehensive surveillance.
Industry Leading Products and Performance
Our thermal imaging cameras use uncooled thermal sensor technology which is low maintenance, cost effective and reliable. Uncooled sensors are ideal for long range detection, which can sense smaller variations in infrared emissions.
What is Thermal Imaging?
Any object with temperature above absolute zero (-273.15 °C) emits infrared radiation which cannot be seen by the naked eye or traditional CCTV cameras. Our uncooled thermal sensor cameras detect and process this into an image that can be viewed.
An ideal choice for surveillance in challenging environments, thermal imaging cameras can detect vehicles, people, footprints and hidden objects with heat traces, even in complete darkness.
Why use Thermal Imaging?
Video surveillance requires the effective detection and identification of objects. Although visible light cameras provide satisfactory coverage in most monitoring applications, in diverse environments, such as those with harsh conditions or extreme darkness, they are not very effective. Thermal cameras, which do not require a light source, are excellent for providing enhanced coverage in these conditions. In addition, thermal cameras have long range detection and temperature measurement capabilities, allowing them to be usd in conjunction with visible light cameras to achieve all-weather, comprehensive surveillance.
Detection in Total Darkness
Thermal cameras has no need for additional lighting. Even in total darkness, it achieves perfect image quality just as in daytime.
Performance in Harsh Environments
Thermal cameras perform better under harsh conditions such as rain, fog and haze.
Long Range Detection
Infared radiation can be observable over long distances. Cameras with a 100mm lens have the ability to detect humans at distances of over 3km.
Temperature Measurement and Alarm
Thermal cameras have temperature measurement capabilities which allow for the display of exact temperature information. Configurable temperature thresholds trigger an alarm and notify workers when objects reach temperatures above the limit.
Benefits of Thermal Imaging
Uncooled Vox Technology
Dahua thermal cameras use uncooled Vox sensor technology. Using uncooled technology is a cost effective solution, offering excellent performance and reliability.
Fire Detection and Alarm
With built-in Fire detect function, the camera has the ability to detect fire at long distances. As thermal cameras are sensitive to temperature, they offer higher accuracy of heat/fire detection than standard IP video cameras.
Intelligent Video System (IVS)
With built-in intelligent video analytics, the camera has the ability to detect and analyse moving objects for improved video surveillance.
Power Over Ethernet
All Dahua cameras have Power over Ethernet support (PoE) meaning the cameras can be powered by the NVR, removing the need for local power and the camera. Using PoE simplifies installation, saving time on each installation.
