How does thermal CCTV work?
Thermal CCTV and heat sensor cameras essentially work by highlighting the heat radiation given off by any object.
Regular CCTV cameras require reflected light to produce visible footage. In harsh weather conditions, and at night, camera footage will therefore be restricted. To negate the impact of harsh external conditions and low lighting, thermal CCTV cameras are the idea solution as they pick up sources of heat as opposed to objects
Furthermore, another major benefit of thermal CCTV camera systems is they greatly reduce the number of false alarms that are typically associated with regular cameras. For businesses operating sites in rural locations, wildlife can often be an issue. Animals grazing will often trigger sensors, increasing the overall risk of false alarms. False alarms waste time, and impact the effectiveness of a security camera system. AI technology allows these images to be analysed, therefore differentiating between an animal and an intruder. As AI technology continues to evolve and become more accessible, thermal imaging CCTV security cameras are becoming highly sought after.
Distance is another core factor in considering thermal CCTV over regular IP and Ultra HD systems. Thermal CCTV cameras will spot potential threats at distance.This renders thermal CCTV solutions as an ideal solution for organisations operating offshore wind farms and government agencies protecting our borders against migrant boat crossings. Additionally, if threats are spotted at distance, they can be dealt with effectively as a security team will have the time to take the appropriate action.
If you are looking to keep your site and buildings secure, regardless of its location, weather conditions and lighting, thermal CCTV is your best option.

Thermal CCTV features & benefits
There are a multitude of reasons an organisation should consider thermal CCTV to protect its site, assets, and people.
To summarise CCTV is highly effective in:
- Low-light situations where there are visual limitations – extra and internal
- Reducing false alarms, unnecessary call-outs and associated costs
- Higher return on investment – more security objectives managed and dealt with effectively
- Providing effective footage where environmental factors impact the ability for security lighting and illumination
Thermal bullet security cameras
Thermal bullet security cameras are the perfect choice for businesses operating sites where visibility or intruder detection may be challenging.
This covers sites that require security after dark, or where the elements or the presence of animals may trigger false alarms.
Thermal bullet CCTV cameras are highly effective at short and long-range distances.
When coupled with advanced video analytics, these thermal cameras offer the highest form of intruder detection, site and asset protection.

Thermal PTZ CCTV cameras
Thermal PTZ (Pan Tilt & Zoom) cameras, provide those in charge of security with the ability to pan left and right, tilt up and down or zoom in and out.
For sites covering a large area, if a threat is spotted at distance, these thermal CCTV cameras allow your security team to stay on top of the issue unfolding.
When coupled with advanced video analytics, thermal PTZ cameras offer the highest form of intruder detection, site, and asset protection.
It’s the ideal choice if you have a security team monitoring a live CCTV footage feed at your site.
IP PTZ security cameras offer:
- Optical zoom so you can focus closely in on intruders and thtreats
- Pan and tilt features offering 360 degree field of vision
- Image clarity and high resolution footage
- The ability to react to live situations
These security cameras are the ideal choice for businesses with significant assets to protect, or require security to cover a large area.
