The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has called for businesses and public spaces to consider how to safeguard their employees and visitors. A fever detection system is a quick, reliable way to measure an individual’s temperature before they gain access to a building – serving as a form of access control for health and security purposes.
Here at Elite Fire Protection, we’re part of the multinational Scutum Group who are offering innovative fever detection technology which uses thermal sensors and facial recognition cameras to measure an individual’s temperature in an instant.
While this isn’t a diagnosis of COVID-19, it’s an effective precaution for picking up on abnormal body temperature of staff and visitors. The engineers at Elite Fire can now offer this state-of-the-art equipment to businesses throughout London and Surrey.
How fever detection technology works
The technology consists of a plug-in Face Recognition Access Control Terminal which combines facial recognition with non-contact temperature detection capability. The unit is complete with mounted screen, high-res camera, wrist temperature detection monitor, non-cold vanadium oxide temperature sensor and facial detection software.
Individuals stand up to 2 metres away, facing the camera which instantaneously reads their temperature. If the assessed individual is measured as being at abnormal temperature, they will be alerted through visual and vocal messaging via the display screen. The temperature data can then be saved online and offline for company reference.
In some cases, the gates can be connected to the technology, opening and closing dependent on the outcome.
Benefits of workplace fever detection
- Protects wellbeing of staff and visitors
- Contactless temperature monitor and automated process
- Long-term investment, as the technology is also capable of facial recognition, along with card, password and QR code authentication, which are useful security capabilities
- Optional mask recognition software to check if the individual is wearing a face mask
- Simply plug in and it’s ready to use
- In some cases, the terminal can be hooked up to a gate which can open and close based on the result
