Roughly 40% of business break-ins happen at night, between 6 PM and 6 AM. This underscores the need for businesses to install night vision cameras, which are specially designed for conditions ranging from minimal light to complete darkness, depending on the technologies they contain.
At Security Lock Systems, we have been offering high definition video surveillance systems for more than 25 years; along the way, we have seen more businesses throughout the Tampa area recognize the importance of night vision cameras. Depending on your location and your security needs, here are some of the night vision camera technologies you may be interested in for your business.
Low-Light Security Cameras
Low-light security cameras are designed to magnify a small, faint light source in conditions with minimal light, such as an area lit by a parking lot light or street lamp. When the image intensifier within the camera grabs the small amount of light, it bathes the image in that light to create an illuminated image where the activities of a subject can be identified. Low-light security cameras are ideal for small businesses, including retailers and food service establishments.
Infrared Light Cameras
Infrared cameras are motion-triggered, designed to save energy as images are illuminated by the LED light that comes on when the motion occurs. It’s a brighter light that makes infrared cameras ideal for dark environments, both indoors and out. The images crisply display in black and white, and subjects are easily viewed. Infrared light cameras may be a good fit for businesses that have dark corridors, crawl spaces and storage rooms, or outdoor areas that are not surrounded by sufficient exterior light sources.
Thermal Imaging Cameras
Thermal imaging cameras tap into heat, rather than light, in order to illuminate images. The higher the temperature, the more intense the image. They use infrared energy as a source, made possible because of the infrared light that is radiated by body heat. Images are typically black when people and objects are cold, and white when people and objects are hot. Some can produce color images. Thermal images are ideal for public health scenarios where body temperature detection is being implemented, or in business environments where body temperature is used to pinpoint infection. They are less commonly used for crime prevention applications.
Many times, businesses request a custom video surveillance solution that combines low-light and infrared light cameras. If your business has a need for night vision, learn more about any of these night vision camera options by calling Security Lock Systems. We look forward to helping you.
