It is now evident that COVID-19 will be with us for a long time. While there have been breakthroughs in some parts of the world like Russia discovering a vaccine, getting a cure for the virus will take longer than anticipated. As such, we have had to embrace the new normal that is social distancing, wearing of face masks frequent hand-washing and so on.
Security checks have now become more than just a hand-held or a walk-through metal detector with temperature screening devices including non-contact infrared thermometers being introduced. This product has now become essential for every entrance security. With the infectious COVID-19 increasing the necessity of temperature screening in every entrance.
For so long, Kenya relied on conventional techniques like the use of ear thermometers and mercury thermometers, which perform well in detecting individuals with strange skin-surface temperature. However, these techniques have clear and huge inadequacies when it comes to dealing with highly infectious situations, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. This is because their use is dependent on close contact among users, leading to a higher risk of infection.
At Securex, we are continuously working to provide the safest products for you. One such product is the non-contact infrared thermometer.
his hand-held equipment has a large-screen display hence is easy to read from. It is also fast, with a measurement time <0.5 seconds and will save you time. It is easy-to-use and saves power, featuring one-button measurement, simple and convenient operation and it has an automatic power-saving shut down for 15 seconds without operation. Finally, it has a variety of uses as it has dual-mode temperature measurement. It can measure human body temperature/material temperature/water temperature and even ambient temperature.
Apart from the non-contact infrared thermometer, you can also install thermal cameras for temperature screening.
Thermal cameras are designed for the detection of skin-surface temperatures so as to achieve rapid and safe preliminary screening in entrances with high footfall. This solution incorporates competent technologies, instead of manpower alone saving you a lot of time especially when screening a large group of people. Apart from complimenting manpower, this solution also decreases contact among individuals as opposed to the non-contact infrared thermometer.
Advantages of using Thermal Cameras for temperature screening
- Help you focus on security: While ordinary thermometers read accurate temperatures, they have their shortcomings. Most people are getting a lot of challenges when it comes to sourcing for the right personnel to operate the thermometer. For this reason, most companies have opted to give to Security Officers to operate the non-contact infrared thermometers which will limit the officers’ attention on security. This is where thermal cameras come in handy. By installing a thermal camera, the burden of looking for personnel is eased as the solutions do automatic temperature screening with sound notification in case of any temperature above normal.
- High-efficiency: Thermal cameras have a high-efficiency rate in all their applications with the capability to screen temperature for up to 10 people at a time. This solution incorporates competent technologies, instead of manpower alone, and it is a much better choice as it is ideal for screening temperatures at entrances.
- High speed: On top of being efficient, thermal cameras for temperature screening saves on time. The cameras have the ability to produce high-quality images without getting affected by environmental factors as it is sensitive.
- Integration: Above all, thermal cameras can be integrated with not only an existing surveillance system to detect skin-surface temperature but also other security equipment, such as walk-through metal detectors.
Thermal cameras are ideal in entrances of buildings with high footfall such as Supermarkets, Restaurants, Factories, Hospitals, Airports, Churches, Huduma Centers, Office Complexes, Shopping Malls among others.
