A.I. Powered Body Temperature Sensing Fever Camera Launched by Platinum CCTV® Helps Businesses Protect Employees and Customers from Virus Spread

WARRENVILLE, IL–Platinum CCTV recently released their new version thermal body temperature sensing camera which has been installed in businesses to help them scan for fevers in their employees and customers.

This new version PT-BF5421-T Thermal/Visible IP Camera represents the newest generation of artificial intelligence thermal imaging, which is designed to sense for accurate body temperatures to ±0.54°F.

Scanning for fevers in individuals can help identify the initial symptoms of viruses in people before they have a chance to spread further. It can pick up accurate body temperatures on people walking at normal speeds while wearing masks, hats, and even helmets.

These cameras help to speed up screening processes at facilities, providing audible and visual alerts when a higher than normal body temperature is found so that the facility can enact their protocols to help isolate from the rest of the patrons or employees to help stop viruses from spreading. The new A.I. built into these cameras, allows the camera to maintain accuracy and increase the speed of screening for all facilities.

“This camera is really changing the way businesses are screening and are helping to keep our supply chains open,” said Michael Dunteman, CEO of Platinum CCTV. “Rapid scanning of employees as they enter a factory or people as they enter mass transit or grocery store facilities helps the country continue to operate our essential functions. At the same time, we have heard from many of our clients that their customers and employees feel much safer knowing that they and everyone else have been scanned for a fever upon entry. Now, security personnel can screen and identify sick individuals without having to touch them, allowing for the implementation of safe, private and effective isolation protocols with medical professionals as mandated by each facility.”
