August 2015 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products

FLIR Systems has announced the availability of the new FLIR TCX thermal mini-bullet camera, a security camera combining 24/7 high-contrast thermal video and high-performance built-in video motion detection with a level of affordability that the industry has seldom seen. FLIR TCX is powered by the company’s Lepton camera core.

FLIR TCX outperforms visible-light security cameras by providing the advantage of seeing clearly in complete darkness without any illumination, in bright sunlight, through smoke, dust or even light fog – enhancing accuracy and dramatically reducing false alarms. Flexible for integration in any environment, indoors and out – even in temperatures as cold as -40°C – it is ideal for ensuring safety of public buildings, industrial facilities, large and small businesses, or residential areas. Featuring both intrusion detection and accurate video alarm verification in one device, FLIR TCX supports lighting control, people counting, retail traffic flow, and queue management, and enables a whole range of other applications including: intrusion/presence detection: vehicles, people, animals; video alarm verification; night vision – 24/7 CCTV; residential security; short-range perimeter security; and safety and fire assessment.

“Whether you’re a small business looking for intrusion detection and video alarm verification, a retail company looking for a solution to monitor customer traffic flow, or a small business trying to prevent break-ins, the TCX Mini Bullet is an extremely accurate solution,” said John Distelzweig, VP and GM of FLIR Security.
