Our Testing Procedures
Our tests are based on a large number of observations and measures established in our different laboratories. Thus, we evaluate the image quality in increased light condition and in total darkness. We submit the cameras to a dazzling position to assess their reactions and we check the distance at which they detect a silhouette and identify a face. In his lab, we check if they are able to detect footsteps and different contacts with furniture or objects. Power consumption is in turn measured using a power meter when the cameras are connected to the mains for 24 hours, during which we perform 6 passing in their field. In terms of convenience of use, we use the cameras every day for a week to check their sensitivity to movements and sounds and take control of their application.
