Helping to monitor temperature in unsure times


Keeping people safe and healthy is essential during the current time of uncertainty. Authorities and companies alike are scrambling to find ways to help manage this and reduce risks. Hikvision offers temperature measurement solutions to help them act and prevail.


Taking the temperature of the situation

Temperature is an important indicator of physical health. In many scenarios, people with abnormal temperatures could have a health issue. To have a proper effect, it’s crucial that this is detected and monitored quickly and accurately. But traditional methods of temperature measurement are time-consuming and can put operators at risk. At times like these, a non-contact temperature screening solution can provide an efficient alternative, reducing manual testing time and the safety risk to those involved in detection.


With advanced detectors and algorithms, Hikvision’s Temperature Screening Thermographic Cameras are designed to detect elevated skin-surface temperatures. This means they can be used for rapid and preliminary temperature screening in hospitals, stations, airports and other public places. The cameras have an accuracy rate of up to ±0.3°C (with a Blackbody calibrator), giving a valuable indication of which persons should have core body temperatures further confirmed using clinical measurement devices.


It takes just one second to detect a person’s skin-surface temperature, which means it is highly efficient in high-traffic locations for example, shopping malls and office buildings. 


The use of AI technology means non-human heat sources, for example a hot coffee, are ignored, reducing false alarms.


Once a person is identified by the camera as having a higher skin-surface temperature, they can be flagged for further measurement. The system can also be useful to monitor a situation, providing useful anonymous data from a safe distance supporting end users’ potential analysis or research.


All this is also achieved with fewer people, not only making it easier to manage and more efficient but also reducing the overall risk of unnecessary exposure.


Flexible solutions

Hikvision’s thermal portfolio has a number of options to help with temperature screening. For example, a Thermographic Turret/Bullet Camera with AI combined with iVMS 4200, a laptop and a bracket can be used as a quick solution that can be easily and quickly installed. For higher accuracy, a solution with a Blackbody calibrator gives an accuracy of ±0.3°C. There’s also a more mobile option, using a Handheld Camera that can connect to a smart phone or PC through wifi to a Hik-Thermal app. This also features a built-in speaker for audio alarm. 


There are also solutions that combine temperature screening with access control, allowing lobbies to be monitored. Additionally, the temporary screening solution with metal detector doors can be temporarily set up an orderly passageway, such as shopping malls, schools, enterprise parks, etc. Finally, the temperature screening on patrol solution can be quickly put into use at fixed entrances and exits for emergencies, for example at external events or building sites, or checkpoints. If necessary, people measuring above a certain skin-surface temperature refused entry until they are double-checked by alternative methods. 


It’s important to remember that Hikvision’s temperature screening thermographic cameras are designed for the detection of skin-surface temperatures so as to achieve rapid preliminary screening in public areas. La temperatura corporal real se debe confirmar mediante dispositivos de medición clínicos.


This is just one element of a complex range of actions to overcome challenges in unsure times. It can also give managers and researchers useful information, collected in a safe manner. Hikvision is committed to developing technologies to empower vision for decision-makers and practitioners, and enhance safety and advance sustainable development around the world.
