We are always in pursuit of clearer and more colourful images not only for their eloquent appearance but also for practical reasons, since clarity and vividness usually means more information concerning safety. A lot of violent crimes are more likely to take place at night in major cities according to a 2019 report from Security Magazine. And the demand for cameras to perform in low light environment is on the rise, as shown in a 2019 IHS report, growing at 20.6% CAGR from 2018 up to 2023.
Dahua Technology, a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, introduces Full-Colour to Smart Motion Detection (SMD). The two technologies make a perfect match that is capable of identifying humans and vehicles in full colour even in extremely low light environment. It effectively filters false alarms while retaining more useful details that can be easily cross checked though its built-in AI. The integration of these two technologies is the first of its kind in the industry, delivering unparalleled value to Dahua customers.
Dahua Technology offers two series of Full-Colour cameras – LED series and Non IR series – that both adopt large aperture lens that collect higher amounts of absorbed light and present a more vivid and colourful image in a dark environment.
Cameras in the LED series are equipped with warm light that serves as a supplementary light in dark environment. The warm light also serves another purpose – to deter intruders – that can significantly reduce crimes in places like dark alleys or parks at night.
Cameras in the Non IR series have no complementary light device and do not emit light like infrared cameras at night, which means it will not interfere with ongoing activities or contribute to light pollution in the environment. Also, it prevents reflections on rainy days and the attraction of small insects, making it an ideal silent security guard in dim places like stores, parking lots and casinos.
SMD can easily process the visual information collected by Full-Colour cameras. Boasting an enhanced accuracy thanks to Full-Colour technology, Dahua SMD can effectively filter false alarms triggered by irrelevant objects, such as pets, insects, leaves, branches, raindrops, lights, etc., focusing only on real threats – human and vehicle.
With advanced AI algorithms, SMD also supports quick target search from recorded videos by extracting and classifying humans and vehicles from massive video data. Users can easily trace and analyse past records using specific features such as certain colours of human and vehicle, saving huge amount of time and labour on event retrieval.
Overall, the Full-Colour and SMD combination is nothing less than sharp eyes plus sharp minds, which is fully capable of meeting the demands of most ordinary users at a relatively low price. With its mission of “Enabling a safer society and smarter living”, Dahua Technology will continue to focus on “Innovation, Quality and Service” to serve its partners and customers around the world.
