Protecting Companies with a Thermal Imagery Camera

Businesses Prone to Theft After Dark Benefit from Infrared Technology

Several industries attract thieves due to their easy accessibility and lack of security after everyone leaves for the day. Construction sites and car dealerships fall into this category. One construction site in Indianapolis reported being broken into so many times that they’d lost count. 

Car dealerships face another issue—millions of dollars of inventory on their lots. As car theft has increased, so have the thieves targeting dealers. MarketWatch reported a 25 percent increase in motor vehicle thefts from 2019 to 2022 and 500,000 vehicles stolen in the first six months of 2023.

So, what can these industries do to protect themselves? Mobile video surveillance with audio and lighting deterrence and 24/7 monitoring offers one of the best approaches to securing your property. However, as most of these thefts occur at night, these systems require a thermal imagery camera to clearly watch your Houston, TX, business.

Discover what these cameras offer and how they protect businesses like yours.

What Is a Thermal Imagery Camera?

A thermal imaging or infrared camera does not require light to view its surroundings. Instead, it captures and displays the heat emitted from objects. These heat signatures are based on temperature differences, and these cameras can detect the slightest difference. 

Unlike standard cameras, these cameras are immune to visual limitations and can detect people in pitch-black or low-light conditions, producing a high-quality image. They can also detect heat signatures through other barriers like foliage, fog, and stormy weather. 

Advanced Self-Learning Analytics

At Cameras Onsite, our mobile surveillance systems utilize state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimal coverage and protection. Our thermal imagery cameras possess advanced analytics. These self-learning AI cameras can tell the difference between people, animals, and vehicles, drastically reducing false alarms.

They also learn as they watch over your property, analyzing data and providing instant alerts when unusual activity occurs. 

Additional Thermal Imagery Camera Benefits

These cameras can identify heat signatures from a greater distance, enabling them to “see” further away than conventional cameras. This ability makes them ideal for expansive areas, including car lots and construction sites. 

Because these cameras do not require lights, they can be discreetly installed. While many businesses benefit from visible cameras that deter theft, discreet placement is sometimes warranted, particularly when the theft may be an internal problem. 

Better Than Eyes

Because these cameras can oversee large areas 24/7 in the darkest night, they are often a better solution than a security guard who is limited in vision and range. However, simply seeing and recording is not enough in today’s theft-prone environment.

That’s why, at Cameras Onsite, we provide 24/7 monitoring from our 100 percent U.S.-based team. You and our team receive alerts when a possible intruder is detected. Then, in addition to notifying law enforcement, we use bright lights and loudspeakers to let the intruder know they’ve been spotted. In many instances, this is enough to scare them away.

Are you ready to protect your establishment? Our mobile surveillance units can be set up in a day and removed once the project is finished or the threat has been reduced. To learn more about thermal imagery cameras or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Cameras Onsite today.
