For reliable round-the-clock detection.
Axis thermal cameras are an excellent – and cost-effective – solution for detection and verification.
Just like our visual cameras, Axis thermal cameras support intelligent analytics. In combination with the cameras, these analytics analyze detected incidents, automatically dismiss non-threatening ones, and immediately notify security of critical situations.
Thermal cameras don’t deliver images that allow reliable identification. So if privacy regulations are a concern, you’ll remain safely in compliance. And we also offer explosion-protected cameras based on thermal technology that feature protective housing. They’re certified worldwide for use in hazardous areas.
A peek inside a thermal camera
Thermal cameras work because all objects – organic or inorganic – emit a certain amount of infrared radiation as a function of their temperature. Like all cameras, thermal cameras collect electromagnetic radiation, which is formed into an image. Conventional cameras work in the range of visible light, in other words, with radiation with short wavelengths. Thermal cameras, on the other hand, detect radiation with mid-length or long wavelengths, which is called infrared radiation.
Since the object themselves emits the light (heat) thermal cameras detect, thermal cameras are not dependent on visible light and can detect in all light conditions, day or night.
