PASS Ltd stocks a large selection of Hikvision Temperature-Screening Thermal Imaging Cameras including handheld, bullet and turret models, as well as combined access-control and temperature-screening solutions. These thermal imaging cameras and solutions are designed to detect elevated skin-surface temperature, a common indicator of fever which is a symptom of many illnesses including COVID-19 coronavirus.[1]

As England begins to emerge from lockdown with select schools, outdoor markets and car showrooms opening from the 1st June and non-essential shops allowed to re-open from the 15th June (provided they comply with the government’s social-distancing guidelines)[2], it is important to implement systems that are designed to protect staff, pupils and the public from further spread of infection. Hikvision’s Temperature-Screening Thermal Imaging Cameras offer a solution to this as they are able to detect persons with above-average skin temperature and they will issue an alarm when abnormal skin temperatures are measured, enabling the user to act accordingly.

It is important to note that the Hikvision Temperature-Screening Thermal Cameras cannot diagnose COVID-19, however, they can identify persons who may be required to self-isolate and undergo further medical screening. Refusing entry to individuals with elevated body temperature can help to prevent the potential spread of infection in public and professional places such as shops, stations, schools and offices.

Hikvision’s Temperature-Screening Thermal Imaging Cameras are accurate, non-intrusive and easy-to-install. For a guide to setting up these cameras, please see the tutorial videos and steps below.
