Siemens Smart Infrastructure’s Siveillance Thermal Shield measures the body temperature of a person entering a building and integrates the information with a video security and access system.
Siemens Smart Infrastructure is launching a thermal imaging body temperature solution that aims to minimise the risk of infection in buildings.
As coronavirus lockdown restrictions start to ease, Siveillance Thermal Shield is designed to help organisations quickly measure the temperature of a person seeking to access a building and enables the results to be integrated into a video and access system.
Thermal imaging cameras measure the body temperature at a distance of up to two metres. If the camera screening indicates an elevated body temperature, a second reading must be taken using a medical thermometer to confirm the finding.
To ensure the highest level of accuracy, the cameras measure the body temperature near the eyes. A positive result triggers acoustic and visual alarms. The temperature is measured for each person individually.
If a person shows an elevated body temperature and this finding is confirmed by a second reading obtained with a medical thermometer, the follow-up steps defined in the workflows are initiated automatically.
The system is typically be used at the entrance of buildings such as factories and hospitals but could also be used at border crossings.
The package integrates the third-party screening camera with the Siveillance Video security platform and other security systems from Siemens. This allows the measurements to be integrated into the workflow of an organisation’s security solutions.
Siemens said the system is typically be used at the entrance of buildings such as factories and hospitals but could also be used at border crossings.
The company is also advising companies on how they can use Thermal Shield for their industry-specific applications to optimise their security systems and procedures a well as support them in the technical implementation.
