Thermal Cameras for Faster, Safer COVID-19 Temperature Monitoring


Is your business worried about the spread of COVID-19? In order to support the fight against the novel coronavirus, we are now offering Thermal Security Cameras. Many companies, like Amazon, have already started using thermal cameras at their operations facilities to ease the process of screening employees for a fever that may be related to the coronavirus. According to the US Centers for Disease Control, workers with 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) should be sent home–and only permitted to return after three days without a fever.

Reduce cross-contamination via non-contact temperature measurement

Thermal cameras,  from companies such as Dahua Technology,  can read heat signatures on people and objects. These devices are more traditionally deployed in industrial or military settings but are seeing an industry boom since the uptick in containing the virus began. When compared to the traditional way of body temperature measurement (a forehead thermometer) using thermal security cameras will significantly improve speed–and even accuracy. At the same time, deploying thermal imaging can help reduce cross-infection via non-contact measurements. For example, it would take an average of 4.2 hours to measure the temperature of 5,000 people using forehead thermometers–at 3 seconds per person. In contrast, it would only take 30 minutes to measure the same amount of people using thermal cameras–that means an average of 3 people would have their temperature recorded every second!

Dahua Vision Thermal Cameras

Dahua Vision, a Security Camera Manufacturer, has deployed a Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution that is capable of identifying individuals with an elevated temperature. With a built-in AI algorithm, these cameras can monitor multiple people from a distance of 9.8 feet away, in an area 4.3 feet wide–enabling fast assessment without personal contact. By setting up a checkpoint with thermal cameras at your facility, you’ll receive a number of benefits:

Thermal camera screening procedures

  • Highly accurate temperature readings of less than a 0.54 degrees Fahrenheit deviation
  • Completely unmanned screening procedures to keep up with social distancing practices
  • Constant measurement of foot traffic at up to 10 faces simultaneously
  • Immediate readings with elevated temperature alerts
  • Powerful AI detection to reduce false readings caused by hot beverages and masked faces
