‘Videcon have developed a non-contact access control system called Thermi-Scan, which uses a combination of five selectable safety measures including face recognition, body temperature, face mask detection, QR code or card and fob access. Thermi-Scan can deny access to anyone with an abnormal body temperature, those not wearing required personal protective equipment or unidentified people (through facial recognition and QR codes). The system also has customisable features to suit the preferences of the user and has the ability to integrate with existing access systems to allow businesses to easily identity people who may have potential symptoms and allow access to their premises on their own preference.
Mass Thermal Screening to limit the spread of infection in busier places.
A heightened temperature has been widely identified as one of the main symptoms of COVID-19, but identifying such an individual, especially in a much larger workspace, and throughout a working day makes it increasingly difficult, like looking for a needle in a haystack.Videcon have developed a mass thermal imagery tool called Thermi-Screen, which can calculate the core temperature of up to 40 people at once with the accuracy of ±0.3°C. Using Videcon’s advanced facial recognition, the system measures the body temperature from two parts of the face, preventing any false reading. Thermi-Screen then sends out alerts if an abnormal temperature is detected, helping to identify people with potential COVID-19 symptoms.Thermi-Screen can be implemented in busier entrance foyers, public spaces, or common high-traffic areas (like corridors) and gives managers and employees peace of mind that anyone at risk will be identified.’
