It goes without saying that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way all Australian Businesses operate. We at Element Security have been working with Australian Businesses, for over 12 years now and our focus has been to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to Electronic Business Security Solutions.
Like most Australian businesses we too have had to rethink our business and the ways in which our existing security technology can be repurposed to suit the post COVID-19 world. Core to this is having all businesses recommence operating as soon as possible and to do so in such a way that both staff and customers are safe and well protected.
Element Security has been working diligently with the development team at NiroVision (our Facial Recognition Software Partner) over the past few months with a view to integrate Thermal Cameras into our existing Facial Recognition Solutions. We are proud to announce that they have now developed a fully functional Thermal Temperature Recognition System with mobile alerting capability.
The software uses dedicated Thermal Cameras to measure each individual’s temperature. If the software detects a person with a temperature over a certain base line (for example 37.5 °C), it will then send a mobile notification to a Manager alerting them to the incident. Notifications include a video clip for managers to view which individual is indicating a high temperature and take action accordingly.
Of course, this is not an infallible solution because most infectious diseases, including COVID-19, have an incubation period where the individual is contagious before showing symptoms. It is however an effective tool that can be used to mitigate some of the risks associated with resuming operations post COVID-19.
