Wildfire monitoring and detection


Reduce safety risks and simplify wildfire monitoring

Wildfire monitoring, detection, and management (before, during, and post-fire) can be made easier when wildfire cameras and sensing equipment are deployed in remote areas near the fire. Timely communication is paramount in any wildfire monitoring scenario.

Nupoint’s wildfire monitoring system provides managers relevant information from your remote wildfire sites—you’re kept fully in the know to manage every situation:

Save on travel

Leveraging Nupoint camera system for monitoring modified-response wildfires and prescribed burns reduces the necessity for on-site inspections. Simply set up Aerimis once and gain instant access to time-stamped images. Retrieve the system after monitoring the fire is no longer required and redeploy easily in a new location. 

Purpose-built for wildfire monitoring

Nupoint’s remote monitoring system is designed to meet the communication needs of wildfire management crews:

  • Equipment designed for harsh, hot environments
  • Quick and simple to set up and configure
  • Affordable and effective photo and weather plans over satellite
  • Compact and lightweight for ease of transport*

Deployment of the remote satellite camera is a huge cost savings

“Smoldering wildfires must be monitored regularly to reduce the risk of further flare-ups and spreading, but fire patrol staff and travel costs, plus the hazards of accessing fires either via road or air, are significant. It is much more convenient for us to deploy the remote satellite camera system and get a photo emailed to us hourly to monitor fires, not to mention the huge cost savings. We’ve been using the this system for over seven years, and it has been extremely well received by our entire team.”
