Cloud-based Thermal Cameras Provide Pre-Fire Detection

Saelig Company introduces the Fotric 123 Infrared Thermal Camera, outed as tthe world's first cloud-based smart infrared camera designed for visual early fire detection that offers real-time data transmission. The camers can be permanently situated indoors or outdoors to detect abnormal changes in heat conditions and send early fire alert warnings via an internet connection before a fire or other problem begins. An integrated, highly-sensitive infrared imager provides accurate temperature measurement and can continuously detect hot or cold spots or even substance leakage conditions regardless of ambient lighting or weather conditions.  


The Fotric 123 is a cloud-based thermal camera that can be programmed to send short infra-red videos directly to a smartphone when preset alerts are exceeded, allowing the system to function as an early fire alert device, detecting the location of potential fires while still in their formation stage and before devastating damage occurs. The cloud storage space is provided free (up to 7 day's alert records) with the price of the camera. The Fotric 123 also has motion detection capability and can also be used as a surveillance IP camera to improve property security. While providing effective fire detection for multiple users, it protects personal privacy since no visible wavelength images are transmitted.
