Summer is coming fast, and with it also the season of forest fires. In previous times, spotting fires outdoors had been problematic. Most of the time, fires in the outdoors are being spotted just by chance. Places such as forests or theme parks had to have wardens who had been looking out for fires, maybe from high up in a tower where they had been able to overlook the area.
Outdoor fire detection systems such as digital fire cameras are now making of the fire detection a lot easier. They are essentially video cameras that are equipped with to state-of-the-art technology so they can spot fires from what they have in view, automatically and without a person needing to be present.
These days, fire cameras are increasingly more used in various industries where they provide added fire safety for oils rigs and manufacturing plants. But they also be found overseeing shopping malls, restaurants, hotels and many other places. Recently, fire cameras are also getting popular among homeowners and small business owners who use them to add a layer of fire safety to their garden or terrace or all those places where smoke alarms can’t reliably work.
