New Normal - Thermal Imaging Cameras Detecting Temperature
The pandemic took us all by surprise in 2020. No one was prepared for such a turn of events. Still, as human nature adapts to any situation and becomes much more creative in times of crisis, we soon arrived from the classic mercury thermometers, the electronic ones, temperature guns, infrared, to the security cameras that measure the temperature and even more to the Temperature Screening Kiosks.
Although people generally react skeptically to new inventions, they are more than welcome when it comes to our health. Thermal imaging technology is in high demand as societies and companies look for ways to defend against the spread of COVID-19.
A hot topic in the security industry.
Since a high temperature is one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, thermal cameras are being used as one of several methods and protocols to help prevent its spread.
How does it work?
Non-contact cameras that use thermal imaging use sensors to detect “hot zones,” or infrared energy (heat) generated by a person (alone or in a crowd), and translate the energy into an electronic signal. The signal is then transformed into a series of infrared and visible thermal video images, which are generated by heat rather than visible light, and sent in real-time to a monitoring center.
Are you ready for the new normal?
As pandemic-related restrictions are lifted and we’re able to move around more freely than we have in months, the “new normal” that ensues will likely include a greater prevalence of temperature measurement technology.
Who can benefit from Thermal Cameras in Florida?
Anyone who leaves an isolated area and returns to the public domain will benefit from a thermal temperature monitoring solution that is designed and operated according to best practices.
But most of all, there is a must to have them in crowded areas such as:
Large retail companies
Consider consulting with your systems integrator partner on when and how you can install thermal imaging cameras to help people know that your business or property is thinking about their health and wellbeing.
