Software To Manage

by msecadm4921

FLIR Sensors Manager offers management capabilities for any security installation with FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras.

FLIR Sensors Manager allows to automatically locate FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras in the network and to control them. Connect the thermal imaging camera to the network, install FLIR Sensors Manager and hit the "discover" button and you will be able to manage and control the camera.

Described as a commercial "Out of the Box" software, designed and supported by FLIR Systems, this application guaranties it is claimed an intuitive and simple user experience.

Versions available

It’s available in two versions: Basic and Pro. Depending on your exact needs and your security network, you can choose the version that best fits your requirements. A free demo version is available and can be downloaded from the company’s website.

The Basic version of FLIR Sensors Manager allows to discover sensors in the network, display network video, define presets, manage scan lists, create panoramas, show thermal images on multiple monitors, capture images or display Nexus sensors on a geo-referenced map.

The Pro version contains all the features that are incorporated in the Basic version, plus Video Analytics, Video Motion Detection, Target Detection, Software based tracking of moving objects, electronic stabilization, radar cueing and display of radar tracks and video wall display.

Connect sensors

Both the Basic and the Pro versions allow multiple users to share monitoring and control of multiple FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras in a network, managing up to four sensors per workstation. Different license packages to manage more cameras are available. Additional sensor licenses can be added to manage up to 50 sensors from a single workstation. Packages can be upgraded so that FLIR Sensors Manager can grow together with your security network.

Control a variety

FLIR Sensors Manager not only works with FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras. Using Nexus technology (FLIR Systems’ technology for managing Sensor Networks), it can also be used to control a variety of other sensors like radars, fences, ground sensors and many others and to make these sensors interact with FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras in so called "slew-to-cue" configurations.

Support for languages

FLIR Sensors Manager can be configured to work in different languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Portuguese and Polish.

About thermal imaging

Thermal imaging is the use of a thermal imaging camera to "see" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal, or infrared energy, is light that is not visible to the human eye because its wavelength is too long to be detected. It’s the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared allows us to see what our eyes can not.

Thermal imaging cameras produce images of invisible infrared or "heat" radiation. Based on temperature differences between objects, thermal imaging produces a clear image. In contrast with other technologies, such as light amplification, thermal imaging needs no light whatsoever to produce an image on which the smallest of details can be seen. Thermal imaging provides full visibility irrespective of the prevailing light level and weather conditions. It can see in total darkness, in the darkest of nights, through fog, in the far distance, through smoke and is able to detect anyone hiding in the shadows. It is used for security and surveillance, maritime, automotive, firefighting and many other applications.
