The Ins & Outs of Thermal Cameras for Facial Recognition & Temperature Detection
This article breaks down the fundamentals of a thermal camera for facial recognition and temperature detection. It explains why your business will benefit from this advanced thermal detection access control system, its key features and how it helps deal with the COVID-19 outbreak.
What are Thermal Detection Cameras?
The Suprema FaceStation 2 combines a Facial Recognition Terminal with a Thermal Camera to detect users who have an elevated skin temperature. It enables organisations to identify employees, customers or whoever uses the system, and works as a filter for organisations that wish to identify those entering the premises who may have a high body temperature. They are small and unobtrusive devices, at 77 mm x 46 mm x 22.2 mm, which fit seamlessly into any business entrance.
How do Thermal/Facial Recognition Cameras work?
The system delivers a combination of facial recognition and skin temperature measurement and can be adapted to a setting for skin temperature measure only. It also enables organisations to log temperature data for better traceability. The temperature measurements are fast and accurate due to the use of thermographic cameras which have 19,200 pixels.
The Thermal Camera connects via USB interface making deployment quick and easy on new and existing/retrofit installs. Then, using thermography technology, the thermal camera measures the temperature of the subject's face which is then presented on the Suprema Facestation 2 screen. Alerts are then raised should a temperature be detected that is higher than the threshold.
How can you benefit from a Thermal Detection Camera?
Thermal Cameras for Facial Recognition with Temperature Detection can play a pivotal role in the protection against the spread of diseases such as Coronavirus. Many organisations and businesses can hugely benefit from an access control system. A variety of businesses and organisations such as offices, factories, schools, stations, airports and other public places can all benefit from a thermal camera with temperature detection - predominantly for safety and security reasons. When detecting a person with an elevated body temperature, the system can immediately block and suspend their access on site.
Covid Detection Cameras
The Thermal Camera accessory for the Suprema FaceStation 2 measures body temperature with outstanding speed and accuracy (within 0.5 degrees celsius). This ultimately means that the spread of Coronavirus and other unwanted viruses can be contained and managed before even entering the building.
