Do you have an outdoor perimeter security intrusion detection system? If you answered yes to that question, here is the next question—do you have a perimeter security lighting solution? If you answered no, then this blog will help you to understand why it is beneficial to have the lighting solution supplemental to the perimeter security system.
Perimeter lighting solutions such as Infrared (IR) or white-lighting systems illuminate the camera view field and significantly enhance the performance of the camera. With an increasing amount of perimeter applications turning to Infrared and White-Light LED lighting solutions, it is important to understand their advantages as opposed to traditional lighting such as halogen, sodium or metal halide.
Perimeter system applications utilize both IR and White-Light for CCTV purposes, and/or White-Light for general lighting purposes.
IR and White-Light solutions have certain requirements for specialized vertical markets such as, military and critical infrastructure facilities.
Fiber Sensys offers a lighting solution called the Light Defender Infrared Illuminator. Below is a brief [slideshare] presentation outlining the features, benefits, and technical specifications of their solution.
This was just a brief overview and introduction to the importance and advantages of having a perimeter lighting solution. The packet below from Fiber SenSys can help you get a high-level understanding Lighting for Perimeter Security Applications.
