Thermal cameras have many advantages, such as allowing users to detect people, objects and incidents in complete darkness and difficult conditions such as smoke, haze, dust and light fog. Eliminating the need for flood lights, they reduce light pollution. In addition, a thermal camera is a reliable platform for integrating intelligent software applications. A conventional network camera reacts to changes in the captured image and can, for example, be disturbed by shades and back lighting. A thermal network camera detects the thermal radiation from the object, which is a more static parameter compared to visual changes in an image.
