FLIR Systems announced the Saros line of next-generation outdoor security cameras that combines multiple traditional perimeter protection technologies into a unified solution to deliver accurate, actionable alerts and verified alarm data.
The FLIR Saros camera line enables commercial businesses to implement state-of-the-art outdoor intrusion detection in a cost-effective manner. Traditional perimeter security systems can require substantial investment, both in infrastructure and in ongoing expenses stemming from false alarms.
The new cameras not only greatly reduces the cost of initial deployment by minimizing the amount of equipment required, but also reduces false positives with built-in advanced analytics, expanding the outdoor perimeter protection market for security alarm monitoring companies. A single FLIR Saros unit combines numerous security technologies, including Multiple FLIR Lepton thermal sensors, High-definition optical cameras, IR and visible LED illuminators and advanced onboard analytics.
The FLIR Saros platform was designed and engineered with today’s cybersecurity risks in mind, with end-to-end encryption for setup, web, and video streams, and configuration lockdown after initial setup for increased tamper prevention. FLIR Saros also eliminates the need for port-forwarding, so devices are less exposed to remote security attacks.
“FLIR Saros, equipped with multiple FLIR Leptons, represents a new security paradigm for wide-area commercial locations that face the threat of loss,” said James Cannon, President and CEO at FLIR. “FLIR Saros products open new business opportunities for both central monitoring stations and security integrators looking to distinguish themselves in the industry. The Saros family is an important addition to FLIR’s security portfolio and supports our goal of innovating technologies that increase perception and awareness to support professionals in decision-making that saves lives and livelihoods.”
The company said, initially the Saros cameras will be available in the third quarter of 2018 across North America and Europe.
