Maryland-IR-Security-Video-CamerasIn today’s world with the cost of energy going up day after day it is creating a real problem for Maryland Area Property Managers, Facility Managers and Business Owners because they are scrambling to cut their energy usage as much as they can. This mean turning down the temperature on hot water heaters, disconnecting interior lights that are not needed and reducing the exterior lighting¬†around the building and parking lots. With the reduction of lighting this can present a real security threat since most criminals like to operate under the cloak of darkness.

There is a solution that will allow these high powered lights to be turned off to save money and provide a more secure environment as well. The use of infrared security cameras have become very popular over recent years. These are Security Video Surveillance Cameras that use Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) to cast out infrared light that is invisible to the human eye but to the camera is like having a powerful light in the field of view.

Here is an example of the savings that these IR Security Video Cameras can provide. If you have a 75Watt Light Bulb it would only take 7 Watts of LED’s to produce the same amount of light as the bulb. They last 5 times as long as normal lights, to the camera it lights up the field of view as if you have a light on in the area and the cost of these cameras are no more than the traditional cameras that you see everywhere.
