Advantages of combining thermal & optical cameras

Thermal optical camera systems combine the best of both technologies. Optical IP cameras are primarily used for general surveillance while thermal IP cameras are excellent for nighttime surveillance and can also be used to provide non-contact temperature measurements. “By combining the optical and thermal cameras, we create a very effective long-range camera surveillance system.
