Thermal imaging cameras

The COVID-19 pandemic is unlike anything we have seen before. The landscape is shifting daily as we adjust to new norms and many lifestyle changes.

As the risk of contracting the virus escalates, it’s become increasingly clear that early detection and isolation are crucial for continued business operation and to help minimise community transmission.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, public health authorities are looking for a reliable, efficient and non-invasive method to detect elevated human body temperature to help identify serious infections. As such, thermal imaging or temperature screening cameras are an effective tool to help detect people with a potential fever.

Managing spread of infections

Managing the spread of infections with thermal imaging cameras

As we have seen around the world, society is deeply concerned about the spread of infection. Technological tools are quickly adapting to our current circumstances and can help detect the virus and ultimately slow transmission. In fact, many other countries are managing the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 with their heavy use of CCTV surveillance technology.

Although there are no temperature screening cameras that can detect or diagnose coronavirus, cameras have a long history of detecting Elevated Body Temperature (EBT) in high-traffic public places through quick individual screening.

Effective across multiple verticals

Temperature detection cameras are used in public spaces such as airports, train terminals, businesses, factories and concerts as an effective tool to measure skin surface temperature and identify individuals with EBT.

Detection of elevated temperatures can help prevent the spread of infection. By screening people in public places such as council premises, building foyers and entry points to schools and shopping centres, early isolation can occur prior to official medical tests.

Thermal imaging cameras work

How do thermal imaging cameras work?

The temperature detection system can measure multiple people’s temperatures per second. With a built-in AI algorithm, it can measure multiple people from up to a 3-metre distance, enabling fast and non-contact access.

The cameras can quickly and non-invasively screen the body temperatures of people entering public spaces, and immediately alert monitors and systems if EBT is detected.

If the temperature of the skin in key areas such as the corner of the eyes and forehead are above average temperature, the individual may be selected for additional screening. They can be further screened with virus-specific diagnostic tests and can help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of viruses and infections.

Using thermal imaging cameras means officials can be more discrete, efficient, and effective in identifying individuals that need additional screening with virus-specific tests.

Benefits of thermal imaging cameras

The proven benefits of thermal imaging cameras

The installation of thermal imaging cameras can greatly assist with automating the process of checking people’s temperatures. As manually recording a person’s temperature is inefficient, recording abnormal temperature information with cameras automatically ensures accuracy and faster multi-person detection.

Other benefits of temperature detection CCTV cameras include:

Refined accuracy
With non-contact temperature detection cameras, the technology uses thermal imaging and advanced analytics to measure the temperature of a person within 0.3 degrees accuracy.

Improved efficiency
Efficiency is also improved as quick screening enables long distance, wide coverage and multi-person detection.

Low cost
Having an automatic early warning mechanism saves manpower and reduces the risk of individual exposure.

Strong adaptability
Temperature detection cameras can be applied to any environment, regardless of its scale such as small locations like entrances and exits, or large venues such as airports and railway stations with dense personnel.
