All three cameras integrate with United VMS 8.0.
FLIR United VMS 8.0 is described by the product firm as an enterprise-level video management solution for managing video security operations. FLIR United VMS 8.0 manages large and multi-location video operations, and includes FLIR Latitude software, as well as FLIR Horizon and FLIR Meridian network video recorders.

Also, United VMS 8.0’s open platform design allows for integration with third party technologies and is customisable and scalable for any size deployment, from small retailers to large enterprises to critical infrastructure, according to the company.
The FLIR PT-Series HD is a dual-sensor camera system that provides long-range perimeter intrusion detection regardless of lighting and environmental it is claimed. The pan-tilt camera provides threat verification. The PT-Series HD offers either a cooled or uncooled 640×480 resolution thermal camera with a 1080p HD visible camera. Multiple thermal lenses are available, including optical zoom lenses up to 14X. The HD visible camera also features a 30X optical zoom lens with autofocus and low light capabilities. The PT-Series HD integrates with FLIR United VMS 8.0 and other video management software.
The FLIR Quasar 4K fixed box multiple-resolution camera can be programmed to switch from 4K daytime mode to 1080p lowlight-nighttime mode. Its compact design allows for the use of specialised camera housings, ranging from explosion- to extreme weather-proof, and can accommodate a range of lenses from super- wide to telephoto. The Quasar 4K fixed box is the company says for high-traffic areas, such as large venues and transport hubs.
The FLIR Ariel 3MP corner camera features a 3-megapixel visible camera that provides ceiling-to-floor and wall-to-wall viewing. The corner camera includes a built-in microphone for audio monitoring and discrete night vision illumination for monitoring low light to total dark the makers say. The Ariel 3MP also features an impact-resistant, vandal-proof, flush-mount housing, for locations such as medical facilities and prisons requiring safety of at-risk occupants.
