Technology solutions specialist, Avoira has launched a range of smart thermal detection camera packages to help businesses and public sector organisations, combat the spread of COVID-19.
The artificial intelligence (AI) powered solutions take just one second to detect a person's skin-surface temperature and can scan not just individuals but groups.
They automatically alert operators when detecting someone with a high temperature, allowing immediate activation of corporate COVID-19 protocols.
The systems are likely to prove of particular use in offices, factories, healthcare facilities, educational establishments and transport hubs.
Andrew Roberts, Avoira's Managing Director said, "thermal detection will play a crucial role as the nation looks towards exiting lockdown and getting back to business.
"These cameras can be swiftly installed to help support employers' wider COVID-19 protection protocols at a time when people are being actively encouraged to return to work.
"They enable non-contact, individual and high-level fever screening which is fast and accurate, reducing the need for riskier and cumbersome manual temperature measurement.
"Whilst clearly not able to diagnose COVID-19 itself, they can provide a highly effective triage service to trigger further diagnostic and containment procedures.
Avoira is offering a range of fixed, turret and hand-held thermal detection camera systems, together with a walk-through solution. These can be complemented by Black Body Temperature calibration units which increase the accuracy of temperature measurement.
Walk-through scanners are ideal for monitoring individuals whilst the camera systems can be deployed for mass screening.
Andrew added, "both individual and high-level screening will identify only those with high skin-surface temperatures, significantly narrowing the need for clinical testing to determine core body temperatures and diagnose associated conditions such as COVID-19."
Avoira engineers will advise on and can install the most appropriate solution for each site. Leasing options start from £20 a week.
