Corps Security focuses on thermal imaging solution in bid to combat Coronavirus
08 May 2020
CORPS SECURITY has launched a thermal imaging tool designed to support organisations as they plan the return to work. The Artificial Intelligence body temperature measurement tool, which comes in hand-held, fixed and tripod-mounted options, automatically scans people’s temperatures as they enter buildings, thereby allowing organisations to identify anyone with a high temperature: a key COVID-19 symptom.
Installed within ten minutes, the cameras can simultaneously scan up to 16 faces – ie anything up to 3,600 faces an hour – making them suitable for corporate offices, major performing arts venues, manufacturing facilities, retail outlets and other high footfall locations. The millisecond response means people have no reason to adapt their behaviour as they enter a facility. On that basis, business efficiency is unaffected.
To support the implementation of this technology, Corps Security has invested in a bespoke training programme for site-based security personnel who will manage the solution, as well as new standard operating procedures designed to support rapid deployment.
Due to the fact that the technology is non-contact, there's no risk for either the organisation’s people or security personnel. Security officers are immediately alerted when an abnormal body temperature has been detected and provided with an image of the person, thereby enabling them to sensitively approach the individual.
As organisations start to plan for the re-occupation of their facilities post the lockdown restrictions, thermal imaging cameras will be an essential tool to support business continuity while keeping people safe.
Mike Bullock, CEO of Corps Security, stated: “Professor Chris Whitty, the Chief Medical Officer for England, has said it is ‘wholly unrealistic’ to expect life would suddenly return to normal. That being the case, organisations of all sizes need to plan well for a different approach to building occupation. This is one of a number of tools that can help them do so.”
