Security systems and surveillance cameras have been integrated with the latest technologies to enhance its ability to secure life and property of individuals. People looking for home CCTV installations would inevitably look for products that guarantee them the most secured environment. CCTV cameras come with features like remote access, motion alerts and Smart Infra-red (IR) night vision that make them much more efficient.
The “Smart IR” feature that a CCTV camera has is a technology built into the system that adjusts the intensity of the camera’s infrared LEDs as the object moves closer to or further away from the camera. This feature was invented to solve the problem of infrared LEDs whiting out images, when the objects are too close to the IR LEDs of a night vision camera. Standard infrared security cameras are suitable for applications where the field of view or focal length are known. However, customers can easily end up purchasing an IR camera that does not fit their requirements because the size of the coverage area is not always known. Security camera installations with “Smart IR” successfully eradicate the challenges with standard IR cameras with the help of these automated settings and adjustments.
Certain areas like store fronts and home entry and exit points can greatly benefit from installing “Smart IR” security cameras. Companies that supply security cameras contain a wide range of products with varied features suitable for particular applications. So, at the time of considering home CCTV installation or camera installations at your workplace, make sure that you compare all the products to find the most suitable one for your facility.
