Thermal Imaging Cameras are a type of thermographic camera. Thermal imaging cameras are typically used in firefighting, police and military industries. By rendering infrared radiation as visible light, the camera can reproduce an image through darkness or smoke. In addition to seeing through smoke, thermal imaging cameras can also see materials involved in spontaneous, low level combustion.
These cameras are perfect for covert surveillance situations in completely dark areas where infrared is not feasible. If infrared illumination is usable in your security operation, then the more cost effective infrared bullet, infrared dome, or vandal proof dome cameras are better choices.
