FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras work together with Milestone Video Management Software (VMS)
FLIR Systems markets a full range of thermal imaging cameras for the most demanding security applications.
Thermal imaging cameras need no light whatsoever to operate. They are widely used by security professionals that want to secure a perimeter 24/7.
Modern security systems are becoming more and more complex. A security network consists of various types of sensors that need to work together in order to offer maximum performance. Therefore thermal imaging cameras need to be able to work together with a wide range of Video Management Software (VMS) solutions.
Milestone Systems Open Platform
Milestone XProtect® is one of the industry's leading open platform IP VMS offerings. It acts as the core of a surveillance system, connecting the widest choice of network hardware for an optimal, integrated solution. The software is offered in tiers as packaged solutions, scaled to different business needs.
Because Milestone provides a truly open platform, you now have the ability to integrate FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras with one of the world-leading VMS platforms.
FLIR Systems F-, PT- and D-Series cameras that have been especially developed for security and surveillance applications will be working together with the latest versions of Milestone XProtect®.
Security professionals that are already using FLIR F-, PT- or D-Series thermal imaging cameras can contact the local FLIR sales person for more details on supported versions of Milestone XProtect and to learn how to update the camera firmware to the latest release which supports Milestone.
Manufacturer Alliance Partner Program (MAP)
FLIR Systems is a member of Milestone’s Manufacturer Alliance Partner Program. Milestone Systems offers this MAP program to hardware companies who want to ensure that their IP network equipment is supported by Milestone software solutions with the fullest compatibility.
Since FLIR Systems wants to make sure that security professionals can easily integrate FLIR thermal imaging cameras in new or existing security networks, it is proud to be a part of this MAP Program.
About thermal imaging
Thermal imaging is the use of cameras constructed with specialty sensors that “see” thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes cannot.
Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or “heat” radiation. Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a clear image. In contrast with other technologies, such as light amplification, thermal imaging needs no light whatsoever to produce an image on which the smallest of details can be seen. Thermal imaging provides full visibility irrespective of the prevailing light level and weather conditions.
It can see in total darkness, in the darkest of nights, through light fog, in the far distance, through smoke and is able to detect anyone hiding in the shadows.
