NOPTIC Spotlight System (Nighttime Optical Thermal Imaging Camera) Product Image

Officer Ed Holzmeister of the Plano Police Department shined his cruiser’s spotlight toward a building. Creeping through the grass in the opposite direction was a burglary suspect who saw the spotlight pointed away from him and thought it was safe to make his getaway. Little did he know Officer Holzmeister had a thermal imaging camera pointed toward him and could detect his every movement. Before the suspect realized what had happened, he was apprehended.

The NOPTIC Spotlight System (Nighttime Optical Thermal Imaging Camera) is a compact, low-priced, high-resolution surveillance tool. The device's unique spotlight mounting location is familiar to officers, making use quick and easy with minimal or no new training necessary. The camera is designed to be perfectly aligned with the spotlight which allows for the timely and tactical use of the spotlight keeping the officer unnoticed inside the vehicle. Unlike handheld devices that spend most of their time in the trunk or at the office, the NOPTIC is always on and ready for continual night vision surveillance.

Able to capture thermal imaging at 250 to 300 meters out, the NOPTIC utilizes passive infrared technology for its 320 by 240 pixel image, so it won't be blinded by any lights. It also has a built-in lens heater that automatically activates at temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit to keep the lens clear of frost. The system is record-ready and is capable of capturing still images.
