Are Hikvision’s temperature screening cameras & thermal imaging solutions the future of managing the safety of your workforce?
Will an investment in temperature screening camera systems & thermal imaging solutions become the norm for businesses looking to run a safe, productive workplace?
If you asked us these questions in early 2020, we’d be scratching our heads, wondering why you asked. Fast forward a few months and the answer is becoming clearer.
Hikvision is a global leader in the security industry. Here at Safeguard Systems, we’ve been working with this security systems manufacturer for years. With an extensive research and development (R&D) workforce, Hikvision is constantly innovating its product portfolio.
Thermal imaging and temperature screening CCTV systems have been around for years.
Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, these security solutions have been developed to provide businesses with the means to scan all staff and visitors for abnormally high temperatures. Businesses, such as Amazon have started using these solutions to screen workers for Coronavirus symptoms.
How do Hikvision’s temperature screening cameras & thermal imaging solutions work?
Here’s the technical wording from the Hikvsision website:
“With advanced detectors and algorithms, Hikvision’s Temperature Screening Thermographic Cameras are designed to detect elevated skin-surface temperatures, and can thus be used for rapid and preliminary temperature screening in office buildings, factories, stations, airports and other public places, with accuracy up to ±0.3°C.”
If you’re not a technical person, here’s a short video explaining how Hikvision’s temperature screening cameras & thermal imaging solutions work. Before watching here’s a simple overview of how the systems work:
- Staff, suppliers and other visitors arrive at your premises or site
- As they enter, the temperature screening cameras scan them for an abnormally high temperature
- If their temperature is high, the system raises an alert
- Their temperature is checked manually and the decision is made whether it is safe for them to enter your premises
For more of an in-depth understanding of how the systems work you can download the Hikvision Temperature Screening Solution Brochure.
