Be Sensible with Sense-Up Technology
Filed under: CCTV Articles, General Technology, Guides, Security Camera
With every new day brings new and improved technology to the world of CCTV cameras. One in particular that seems to be catching on quite fast is a phenomenal feature being utilized by newer cameras. This feature is called Sense-Up. The main purpose of sense-up is to provide a camera that does not rely on artificial light to see in very low light conditions. A camera with sense up is very capable of capturing images in near total darkness all while maintaining full color images as well.
This is all possible in the fact that the shutter stays open longer, allowing more light into the camera and being capable of seeing better in low light. This feature also gives you the ability to set limits to the amount of sense up want to use. The limit setting can be set on most cameras anywhere from 2X amplification to 128X amplification. This not the actual shutter speed rather the amount of light being allowed into the camera.
While some security marketing people claim that sense up is the end of infrared night vision, this simply isn’t the case. However it is a feature that under the right circumstances can produce an unbelievable image without having to go to black and white, adjust power due to IR’s being turned on, as well as reduction of noise and graininess to produce a crisp image in near darkness. It just makes sense to go Sense-Up.
