Thermal cameras are helping businesses reopen
Hikvision's free app offers remote monitoring of customer temperatures using thermal security camera technology

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - eTradeWire -- As businesses, churches, and event venues eye reopening in the wake of the global COVID-19, many are looking to monitor the temperature of their patrons as they enter a building or public space.

The idea is simple: One of the first signs of viral infection is an elevated temperature. Taking the temperatures of every person who enters a shared space can alert authorities to an infected person's presence and allow them to take appropriate measures.

While temperature monitoring is an important part of any organization's reopening plans, the technique typically requires hiring expensive staff and spending considerable time with each person entering an event, retail space, or church service to take each individual's temperature using forehead or other type of thermometer.

One manufacturer of thermal security cameras wants to help businesses, venues, and public gathering spaces open faster by introducing a special offer: Hikvision is making available a mobile application that can be used in conjunction with their thermal security cameras to automate the monitoring of human temperature. This technology, typically used for security purposes, is now being used to monitor the temperatures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

With Hikvision's temperature monitoring hardware and software in use, the user can monitor activity of guests entering a space, measuring body temperature as a way to spot people who might be infected with the coronavirus. If a person who enters has an elevated temperature, the device will trigger a real-time alarm via the mobile app to notify the device's operator.

"Hikvision's thermal camera and mobile app is perfect for business owners, school settings and sporting events that want to welcome back their customers and guests after the pandemic," said Kelly Rogan, Operations Manager. "By incorporating this amazing technology, companies can save the hassle and expense of hiring staff to take the temperature of every person who enters a store or space."
