Dahua Technology Ltd

Night surveillance, remote surveillance, temperature detection -- since their debut, thermal cameras are endowed with features that other cameras cannot compete with. Debuted in military field, thermal cameras have played a key role in wars. After years of research and development, infrared image processing technology and the craftsmanship of the detectors are becoming more proven, and the cost of the components is lowering, thermal imaging technology entered into industrial market.

But till recently, most of the thermal cameras in industrial market are still very bulky and above the affordable limit of most commercial projects. Dahua, as a manufacturer and supplier of intelligent security surveillance products and solutions, launched an entry-level thermal mini hybrid bullet camera – DH-TPC-BF2120. Featuring mini size, dual-channel spectrum, intelligent functions and affordable price, DH-TPC-BF2120 is a thermal camera truly for commercial installations. It is installed just like any other security surveillance camera.

Dahua DH-TPC-BF2120 features

Mini-sized and durable DH-TPC-BF2120 has a small and cute external dimension of 9.39" x 3.56" x 3.56". The ingress protection grade reaches up to IP67, which has strong environmental adaptability against water, dust and other contaminants.

Dual-channel spectrum, external infrared lamp DH-TPC-BF2120 deploys Dahua’s advanced image analysis and intelligent algorithms in the optical camera, and fully integrates them into the thermal camera. This camera combines one thermal camera for monitoring in total darkness and one optical camera with SONY STARVISTM sensor to acquire high resolution colour image. It is connected using one IP address. IR led illuminating will be turned on at night to make sure no detail is missed in any lighting conditions.

Intelligent functions In addition to basic functions such as ROI, IVS, PIP, image fusion and etc., DH-TPC-BF2120 supports multiple intelligent functions, meeting the demand of daily video surveillance, fire hazard warning and alarm message delivery. Fires are usually caught by imperceptible hidden flames, which are hard for general surveillance systems to detect. Utilising thermal imaging technology, DH-TPC-BF2120 is able to discover hidden flames quickly and effectively. It precisely locates the fire allowing timely emergency response to nip the fire in the bud.

Perimeter protection

Multiple DH-TPC-BF2120 thermal cameras can be utilised to form a perimeter intruder detection system, which performs as an invisible tripwire using thermal imaging technology. When installed at the recommended height of 5 meters and with an FOV of 56°×44°, one DH-TPC-BF2120 thermal camera covers a fence of 29 meters long. Whether it is day and night, as long as someone enters into a targeted area, a warning will be sent to the control centre. It is truly an ideal choice for applications such as residential parks, industrial parks, gardens and large parking lots.

Thanks to its thermal technology, DH-TPC-BF2120 is an ideal device to guard such spaces like warehouses, exhibition halls, etc

Fire detection

Big internal spaces with goods presents fire hazard which is difficult to detect by smoke sensor. Surveillance cameras, however high-resolution they are, cannot effectively detect the location and scale of the fires. Thanks to its thermal technology, DH-TPC-BF2120 is an ideal device to guard such spaces like warehouses, exhibition halls, etc.

Cost-effective intelligent functions

Dahua DH-TPC-BF2120 thermal mini hybrid camera, a powerful combination of high cost-effectiveness and intelligent functions, is the first thermal camera truly for commercial market. Though an entry-level product in Dahua thermal camera portfolio, DH-TPC-BF2120’s numerous intelligent functions make it a one-stop solution for small and medium sized surveillance projects. Supporting ONVIF protocol, DH-TPC-BF2120 is compatible with mainstream third-party VMS platforms in the market, such as Genetec (Security Center 5.6 GA), Milestone (XProtect Corporate 2017 R1) as well as Dahua DSS (Dahua Security Software).

The launch of DH-TPC-BF2120 will increase the potential market space of thermal imaging, protecting the investment of Dahua customers. With a mission to build a safer society and promote smarter living, Dahua will continue to focus on “Innovation, Quality and Service” to serve partners and customers all around the world.
