Today we can find a large number of devices on the market that help with fire detection and fire prevention, either for private households or for commercial use such as for businesses.
In recent times we have even seen smoke detectors on the market that won’t require any maintenance and battery replacement for 10 years. Most of those devices are reasonably priced and you can get them almost anywhere today.
But then there can be locations and places were proper fire prevention is not that easy as to simply install a number of smoke detectors.
What if you want to detect fires out in the open, say if you need to monitor a large area such as a forest, sports stadium, festival premises or a very large factory?
This is were fire detection cameras have recently shown very effective. A fire camera works by digital image analysing and processing. This has the advantage that it doesn’t need to be near a fire or smoke to detect a potential blaze. A fire camera may be several hundred metres away from a fire’s origin plus it can also overview a much larger area as compared to most conventional fire detection systems.
Fire cameras have another advantage, this is that they can alert about a fire or smoke without much a delay.
Those five spotting systems are able to automatically summon the fire brigade. By triggering an automatic alarm at the earliest possible time, fires can be detected and subsequently fought before they can cause major harm to people or structures. Most companies and businesses can easily integrate a fire spotting camera into their existing CCTV camera system.
