FLIR Security Vertical Applications


Commercial

Thousands of FLIR’s thermal and visible security cameras are installed every year by facilities that understand the power of having true 24-hour video surveillance capability. FLIR thermal cameras detect intruders from much greater distances, giving security forces more time to react and respond. Coupled with FLIR’s MPX, IP, and Analogue lines of visual and infrared illuminated cameras, you’ll have an interlocking web of video tools for intrusion detection, alarm verification, and forensic evidence gathering that is all but unbeatable.

Critical Infrastructure

Critical Infrastructure

Nuclear power plants, bridges, oil/gas production facilities, storage facilities, and telecommunications network facilities all require continuous video security monitoring.

Force-on-force exercises have repeatedly shown that thermal cameras are the hardest intrusion detection technology for adversaries to defeat. Security experts throughout the industry agree: thermal security cameras from FLIR are the best solution for meeting 24/7 video surveillance requirement as an integral part of the Detect, Delay, Respond strategy, designed to give security forces time to locate, contain, and neutralise adversaries before they can access or cause damage.

Facility Operations and Safety personnel have been using handheld FLIR thermography cameras to gather non-contact temperature measurements and condition monitoring data for decades. Now you can use the same camera to do both, and couple it with FLIR’s proven line of MCX, IP, and Analogue security cameras and recorders for a true 24/7 video security solution.

FLIR’s radiometric thermal imaging technology combines detection capability with the power of temperature measurement to create a multidimensional tool that covers perimeter security and operational predictive maintenance creating an even greater return on investment than ever before.

Ports & Borders

Ports & Borders

FLIR's thermal and visible security cameras have found a home protecting ports and borders throughout the US and around the world. Their high quality and 24/7 imaging capability make FLIR’s cameras a “must-have” for any port or border security system.

They work seamlessly with other sensors like ground radar, fence alarms, and video analytics. Internal software can command the FLIR camera to look at a radar return or fence alarm automatically, allowing operators to evaluate the threat and decide upon the appropriate response remotely.


Petrochemical

Thermal imaging is the only solution that makes sense economically, technologically and tactically when it comes to securing a large petrochemical plant.

FLIR's thermal security cameras are vital in helping any facility meet the Department of Homeland Security's new Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) Tier One Risk-Based Performance Standards (RBPS) requirements for restricting a facility's perimeter (RBPS 1), securing applicable assets (RBPS 2), and solidifying any deter, detect, and delay strategy (RBPS 4).

With the most extensive line of network-enabled, IP-based thermal cameras in the world, FLIR ensures the right mix of camera resolutions, lens focal lengths, and system configurations – from simple fixed-site cameras to full geo-referenced pan/tilt multi-sensor systems – to meet the solution of any facility.

FLIR Systems United VMS Provides Surveillance For Abu Dhabi’s Safe City Initiative

Abu Dhabi is a major cultural and commercial centre in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), accounting for roughly two-thirds of the UAE’s economy. While oil and natural gas make up a large portion of its GDP, Abu Dhabi has positioned itself as a premiere tourist destination, with major investments in luxury resorts and business hotels. Consequently, public safety is a top priority — and FLIR Systems is playing a critical role in the city’s long-term safe city initiative. Recently,...

FLIR PT-Series Thermal Camera And SpotterRF’s CSR Systems Offer Perimeter Detection For U.S. Electrical Substations

There are over 55,000 electrical substations in the United States. These substations, along with power plants and transmission lines, provide power for millions of people. It is imperative that these locations remain secure from intrusion and sabotage. If just a handful of these substations were rendered inoperable, the U.S. could face a serious blackout. The 2013 sniper attack on PG&E Corporation’s Metcalf transmission substation, which knocked out several transformers and totalled o...
