Today, the challenge to CCTV professionals is to make sure that video footage is effective on a 24/7 basis, 365 days a year. Securing an area during the daytime is one thing.  But what happens during the night? And in weather conditions like fog, rain and snow? What can be detected if CCTV cameras are blinded by the sun?
Whatever solution or technology is chosen for securing an area, they all have their advantages and disadvantages and some technologies are more expensive than others. To get a full picture of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a certain solution, not only the initial installation cost but also the maintenance cost needs to be taken into account. All technologies have advantages and disadvantages but thermal imaging is a very good and a very cost effective solution for protecting a perimeter. This is definitely true if the perimeter needs to be protected during the night.
Quite a number of technologies are available to help detect potential intruders in the dark.
Although a thermal imaging camera is a bit more expensive than a CCTV camera, less cameras need to be deployed to cover the same area. The civil works that need to be carried out are minimal. Furthermore, since thermal imaging cameras produce a clear image in the darkest of nights, no complimentary technologies like light or infrared illuminators need to be installed. This limits the amount of civil works that needs to be carried out but is it also reducing the maintenance cost.
Thermal imaging cameras also generate fewer false alarms which is a common problem with CCTV cameras combined with Video Motion Detection or Video Content Analysis softwares.
Although thermal imaging cameras are a bit more expensive than CCTV cameras at initial purchase, they are often not only the best, but also the most cost effective solution.

THERMAL IMAGING CAMERAS ABLE TO MEASURE TEMPERATURES. MONITOR CRITICAL EQUIPMENT AND PROTECT YOUR PERIMETER WITH THE SAME CAMERA

FLIR A-Series can be installed almost anywhere to monitor your critical equipment and other valuable assets. They will safeguard your plant and measure temperature differences to assess the criticality of the situation. This allows you to see problems before they become costly failures, preventing downtime and enhancing worker safety. They can also be used for Security & Surveillance.

Although most of the thermal imaging cameras that are being used in a Security & Surveillance environment do not need to measure temperatures there are some cases in which the ability to measure temperature offers advantages. Definitely when Security & Surveillance needs to be combined with temperature monitoring of critical installations.

A typical example is substation monitoring. With a thermal imaging camera that is able to measure temperatures you can monitor transformers and other substation equipment during daytime. At night, the same thermal imaging camera can be used for perimeter security.

Other examples include waste bunker or coal pile monitoring and any other application where fire prevention needs to be combined with security and surveillance.
