One solution for keeping people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic has been to check employees’ temperatures as they enter a facility. Elevated temperature can be an indicator of COVID-19.
The main advantage to a thermal camera system is that the person who monitors the thermal system is not required to be close to the person being evaluated. If one employee coming in does have COVID-19, the person taking temperatures could be at risk and spread it to others before the infection is contained. Thermal monitoring can help reduce cross-infection through noncontact measurements.
Having people at the entrance to check temperatures as employees enter can be a slow process that keeps employees from getting to work on time. For example, it would take an average of 4.2 hours to measure the temperature of 5,000 people using forehead thermometers, assuming it takes precisely 3 seconds per person. EyeQ Monitoring thermal cameras can monitor the same amount of people in the span of a few minutes.
Thermal imaging systems more accurately measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead thermometer that requires a close distance or physical contact with the person being evaluated.
Thermal cameras provide a safe way to keep your business running smoothly and safely. Professional design and installation are critical, though, because incorrect angles, heights and other details can affect accuracy.
EyeQ Monitoring offers thermal cameras for faster, safer COVID-19 temperature monitoring. We have individual scanning systems, which can detect temperatures of one nonmoving person at a time, or group systems that scan groups of moving people (those walking through a lobby, for example).
