Ideally, they can be used as a cost-effective detector with visual confirmation for safety of both people and property in numerous environments. The cameras have built-in analytics, such as AXIS Video Motion Detection that can send an alert when it detects motion from moving objects within a predefined area. The cameras also support AXIS Camera Application Platform, which is compatible with a broad range of third-party applications.
Martina Lundh, Global Product Manager at Axis Communications explains the benefits of thermal imaging:
“In environments where the privacy of individuals is paramount – for example schools and care homes – thermal imaging detects incidents without revealing personal details of the people in the image. Together with analytics these new cameras can trigger alerts or alarms in response to patient or resident falls, allowing staff to take immediate action.”
“In care environments, staff can observe patients and residents remotely, so that staff can work more efficiently, and patients and residents can rest undisturbed. In the same way, it is possible to use thermal imaging to observe student movements through a school, without having staff physically present in every room or hallway and without invading the student’s privacy. In addition, cameras can be used inside and outside schools to identify unauthorized access before, during or after school hours.”
