Thermal Temperature Screening Solutions
Many facilities are reopening with temperature check requirements. As with all automation, Automated Temperature Screening Solutions eliminate the need for personnel to be present to assure it is done. Many facilities are requiring masks, and the solution can also assist with maintaining compliance in that regard.
The screening solutions takes a photo of every entry and stores it with wrist-measured body temperature data. Event logs can be stored and accessed via a PC software. The digital detection module supports rapid body temperature detection. Thus, the product can achieve face recognition and temperature detection at the same time, and support warning people with abnormal body temperature. These devices can recognize that someone isn’t wearing a mask and give a verbal reminder. They can also be programmed to be used as a “clock-in” or register of attendance. Another option provides a set of dry contacts that can be connected to magnetic or electronic door latches. No fever, the door releases. Showing a fever, the door won’t allow admittance.
It can be widely applied in the crowded places, such as smart communities, schools, office buildings, hospitals and other important areas.
Sample Thermal Temperature Screening Applications
School entrance ways are the major spot to screen abnormal temperatures. However, considering the dense people flow, screening procedure should be fast and convenient. No crowding or commotion is tolerable.
Customer entrances are where everyone walks into the supermarket and traffic flow is at high levels. The measurement procedure should be fast and convenient to avoid commotion and crowding.
Entrance areas are where everyone enters and exits buildings. To prevent crowding, a quick and convenient setup is recommended for preliminary temperature screening.
Hospitals see large number of people, healthy or ill, going in and out everyday. Entrances are one of the most crucial screening places in the hospital as everyone need to pass through.
