As the economy opens back up and people get back to work, business leaders are entering uncharted territory. They need to keep operations running to serve customers, while also doing everything possible to contain the rise in COVID-19 cases. The CDC outlines its recommendations for the back-to-work transition. Their list covers a lot of areas – encouraging remote work, limiting face-to-face contact, keeping sick employees home, and performing a routine cleaning of all spaces. But, organizations can take another critical step to better protect employees, customers, and the public – thermal monitoring.
Thermal monitoring solutions use video analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and IoT devices to detect individuals with elevated temperature (i.e., 100°F+). This removes the need for handheld temperature measuring devices. These solutions are an entirely non-invasive way to check a person’s body temperature before allowing entry into a building or other public area. By screening individuals’ body temp, organizations can help identify those who may be potentially ill, and not even know it.
These new high-tech, non-contact solutions are ideal for quickly screening those entering office buildings, factories, retail stores, and airports. Where are other areas of potential use for thermal monitors?
Intelligent thermal imaging systems will likely become part of our new ‘way of life’ as we move forward. Thermal imaging solutions can also track the number of people leaving and entering a room and they can detect when an individual is missing PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), which may be required.
Imagine it’s two months from now, and you’re hosting a customer event. Or you’re going to a concert in the park. Or you’re taking your kids back to college, or you’re even boarding an airplane! All of these activities used to seem routine, but in the COVID-19 era, our old routines are no more. Thermal monitoring equipment can bring an added layer of protection to these every-day interactions.
