WATCH: Dahua on cutting false alarms with thermal cameras

Dahua Technology, a provider of video surveillance products and services, attended IFSEC International, at ExCeL London in June 2019, to showcase its range of CCTV cameras.

Steve Salisbury, the company’s pre-sale manager, spoke to IFSEC TV (watch the interview below) on the different types of cameras it manufactures, which suit a wide range of applications and environments.

This includes an eight-channel, real-time embedded digital video recorder (DVR) and thermal cameras.

A major focus for CCTV manufacturers and security teams alike is reducing false alarms, which Salisbury believes thermal cameras can play a major role in. “Trying to cut down false alarms for arts and control rooms is massive,” he said. “Technology like AI cameras can give layers to security, but only when the camera can see a good picture; if we have a foggy day however, it could struggle. This is where the thermal element of cameras comes in,” he added.
