The PT-BF5421-T Thermal/Visible IP Camera is designed to help protect against pathogenic community spread by rapidly pre-screening individuals before they enter a facility. The body temperature sensing security camera, says the company, represents the newest generation of artificial intelligence thermal imaging, which is designed to sense for accurate body temperatures to ±0.54°F.
The camera can pick up accurate body temperatures of people walking at normal speeds wearing masks, hats, and even helmets. It is designed to help 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, says the company, 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,” says 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,” says Dunteman, “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.”
The PT-BF5421-T thermal camera can be used as a standalone device for security personnel to just watch live on a laptop or it can be incorporated with the company’s proprietary AVM (Advanced Video Management) platform for recording. Other features of the thermal fever camera include the following:
- HD Resolution Video quality (1920 x 1080 visual resolution)
- Accuracy to ±0.3°C (±0.54°F) at normal body temperatures
- Configurable Audible Siren and Visible light alert
- Artificial Intelligence for most accurate temperature readings
- ONVIF 2.0 compliant, works with most NVR software
The company suggests a wide variety of applications for the camera, including medical and nursing facilities; food service facilities; sports and convention venues; transportation stations; police checkpoints and military bases; manufacturing facilities; and apartment buildings.
