Here at Protect & Detect, we’re committed to enhancing the safety and wellbeing of premises across Ipswich. Part of this means responding to changing times and the needs that come with it – in this case, COVID-19 has seen businesses take stricter measures to safeguard the health and safety of their staff and visitors.
That’s why we’re now supplying innovative Hikvision Temperature Screening Solutions, which are designed to rapidly detect skin-surface temperature. Let’s explore more about how this technology works and how it can benefit a public space.
Why use temperature screening technology?
With the current coronavirus pandemic, it’s never been more important to assess the temperature of individuals entering your premises. Doing so could prevent a potential outbreak at your premises by catching the early warning signs of the virus before an unwell individual enters the building.
The Director of Protect & Detect, Vincent Langley, says: “Wellbeing and safety is paramount for everyone during the current pandemic of coronavirus. With a lot of different temperature screening products available on the market and all with varying degrees of success and accuracy, we found that the Hikvision products offer the most reliable, accurate results. For reception areas, offices or crowded public areas, there is a product that can help detect abnormal temperature results.
“We have already been working closely with a number of local businesses to get these products installed into their premises, therefore providing both employers and employees peace of mind that their working environment is as safe as possible.”
How does the screening solution work?
When screening large numbers of people, speed and accuracy are priority. Hikvision products are designed to offer fast, smart and safe screening that makes them ideal for busy environments where lots of individuals need to be screened quickly. This makes it a practical solution for high-traffic environments such as public spaces and work premises.
Hikvision screening technology will:
- Only screen skin temperature, which bypasses false results from other heat sources e.g. coffee cups.
- Ensure that ambient temperature and the distance of the subject to the reader are taken into account when generating a reading.
- Quickly and efficiently take a reading to give accurate, yet rapid results.
- Avoid close contact between two individuals, which would be involved with conventional checking methods such as thermometers.
