New FLIR FC-Series ID Thermal Security Cameras Feature Built-in Analytics to Reduce False Alarms

FLIR Systems, Inc. announced the release of the FC-Series ID thermal security cameras, the latest models in its FC-Series line. The FC-Series ID thermal cameras combine built-in analytics for high performance intrusion detection, industry-leading image quality designed for high-end commercial users and an expanded selection of high-performance lenses to suit a wide range of applications.

The FC-Series ID cameras deliver best-in-class thermal image detail with on-board edge-based video analytics in a single device. The cameras feature easy-to-create custom trip wires and regions of interest. They are also capable of automatically detecting and classifying human, vehicle and other intrusions, significantly reducing the number of false alarms.

The FC-Series ID cameras see heat instead of light and as a result, deliver superior image quality in what are typically considered challenging conditions for visible light or IR illuminated cameras. By seeing only thermal energy, the cameras see clearly in complete darkness, without any illumination and are immune to the effects of sunlight, shadows, smoke, haze, insects and even light fog. As a result, the FC-Series ID cameras provide reliable around-the-clock intrusion protection while significantly reducing false alarms.

In addition, the FC-Series ID cameras are available with a wide selection of high-performance lenses, ranging from wide angle to narrow fields of view, with either VGA or QVGA resolution. Combined with a choice of 320 or 640 resolutions, the FC-Series ID cameras offer more fields of view and resolution options than any other commercial thermal security camera line.

“Our new FLIR FC-Series ID cameras build upon the industry’s most popular thermal security camera line,” said John Distelzweig, Vice President and General Manager of FLIR’s Security segment. “The new cameras offer security professionals the highest operational availability coupled with the lowest false alarm rates through the use of the latest edge-based thermal video analytics.”

The FC-Series ID camera will be available to purchase from FLIR distribution partners later in 2015. To learn more about the FC-Series ID, please visit:
