Leeds-based CCTV and security distributor CCTVdirect has released a new non-contact wrist temperature reader to combat the spread of Covid-19 in premises such as hotels, restaurants, bars, clubs and pubs.
The non-contact temperature scanning technology used in the terminals is designed to detect wrist temperature within 0.3°C from 1-4cm in under one second. Users approach the terminal and place a wrist into position by the temperature reader for body temperature to be read. Once users are scanned they’re instructed to proceed, or if found to have an abnormal temperature, an alert will be raised and operators can intervene.
The technology has been designed for plug and play deployment in entrances and lobbies of restaurants, workplaces, hotels, healthcare facilities, offices and other similar areas. The terminal comes equipped with a commercial-grade heavy-duty stand to allow for ease of access, along with visual cues to aid visitors as they approach the terminals.
The on-screen display also allows operators to personalise the terminal with their logos and company name along with adverts.
Mark Raine, CEO at CCTVdirect commented: “This solution has been designed for situations like which we currently find ourselves in, with measures now being relaxed and with people returning to work and hospitality organisations prepare to reopen. With guidelines changing continuously, we all have a responsibility to keep each other safe and using these terminals is a practical way to stop the spread of viruses like Covid-19.
“I feel those businesses and organisations that deploy such rapid solutions will instantly create customer confidence from their users and as such should re-establish themselves faster as visitors will ultimately feel safer and more assured that all appropriate measures have been taken. People will not patiently continue to queue to enter a store, these systems will replace that inconvenience allowing for faster, safer footfall. We’ve seen a huge spike in solutions such as this being used for this purpose. It may not be able to cure viruses but it can help organisations potentially identify potential carriers.”
