CREATING SMARTER SYSTEMS WITH NETWORK LIGHTING

Lighting has always been an essential component of high security video surveillance systems but has historically been treated as a stand-alone accessory. However, with the development of Network Lighting, it firmly places illumination at the very core of our security systems and unlocks more intelligence than ever before. It enables us to use lighting as an interactive and dynamic tool which can respond instantly to any situation at any time. IP Lighting can be fully automated to operate even if your site is unmanned. It can be triggered from any... Read More

HOW RAYTEC CALCULATE ILLUMINATION ANGLES?

The spread of light from your illuminator has a critical impact on the success of your video surveillance system. But in the absence of any accepted industry standards and testing methods the calculation of Width/Angle has historically been left open to the interpretation of the manufacturer – leading to varying performance claims. This has always made it virtually impossible for consultants, installers and end-users to specify surveillance lighting with confidence, reliably compare products, and achieve a consistent level of performance. Width/Angle Performance Consider the two images above, both manufacturers could... Read More
