Thermal Imaging Cameras Now Offering Elevated Body Temperature Detection and Alerts

It is clear by now that taking precautions to prevent COVID-19 will be necessary now and in the foreseeable future. This is true for businesses, schools, and even homes. However, carrying around traditional thermometers is less than convenient.

There is some good news. As experts continue to predict the “second wave” of COVID-19 as cooler weather moves in, you can harness innovative technology to provide you with accurate temperature screenings with minimal contact. This technology is thermal imaging cameras.

These cameras are designed to provide zero-conduct, accurate, and fast assessment of an individual’s temperature. Even better, these systems can actually integrate with existing security systems you have in place at your business, school, or home.

The Biggest Benefits of Thermal Imaging Cameras

The top benefits of investing in these thermal imaging cameras include:

• Zero-contact
• Maximize the flow of traffic
• Reduce cases of congestion for busy businesses or organizations
• Keep in place long-term for flu season and beyond
• Increase and protect student, employee, and client or customer health

How Does Thermal Imaging Work?

Thermal imaging cameras can detect, measure, and quantify several points on a person’s face close to the eyes, where infrared energy is constantly emitted. This area provides the most accurate reading of a person’s basal body temperature. To work effectively, those being screened must face the camera, pull their mask down for a few seconds, and the process is done. Individuals do not even have to stop walking, making this an effective and accurate way to manage COVID-19 and other illnesses while operating without delays or other issues.
