Flir's RapidRecap Shortens the Review Process

Based on technology historically used in law enforcement for rapid suspect identification, RapidRecap allows users to simultaneously review a day's worth of video events in seconds and quickly pinpoint events of interest. Original recordings of interest can then be accessed on both iOS and Android devices. The FX includes complimentary access to Flir's Free Cloud Basic, which provides cloud storage of video motion events dating back 48 hours.

SmartZone Technology Lets FX Users Narrow the Field

The camera's SmartZone feature allows users to identify specific areas within the camera's field of view for movement detection, which in turn triggers an instant alert to a user's mobile device of choice. This allows users to receive only the most relevant alerts. An optional protective acrylic camera housing facilitates body or helmet mounting and makes the camera waterproof at depths up to 65 feet.

Sophisticated Options Improve FX's Versatility

An optional dash-mount facilitates mounting the FX camera to a dashboard or windshield for recording while driving. In addition, a built-in accelerometer senses motion and activates a 30-minute loop recording function. The accelerometer also senses shock from potential impacts and automatically stores a "before and after" recording.

With a Cover, the FX Can Be Deployed Outdoors

Sold both with and without the camera, the outdoor accessory includes additional infrared LEDs to facilitate more powerful night vision capabilities up to 65 feet. Additional features include two-way audio, ambient temperature measurement, humidity monitoring and the ability to manage multiple cameras at once.
