Thermal detection time and attendance solutions

The Suprema FaceStation 2 with Temperature Detection combines a high-performance facial recognition time and attendance terminal (the FaceStation 2 Facial Recognition Terminal) with a thermal camera to detect users with elevated skin temperature. It conducts rapid and preliminary temperature screening in office buildings, factories, schools, stations, airports and other public places, working as a first-line filter for organisations that wish to identify those entering premises who may have an elevated body temperature.

Keep your business safe

Elevated body temperature (most commonly a fever) is one of the most frequent symptoms of a viral infection. The thermal camera accessory for the terminal measures body temperature with outstanding accuracy (≤± 0.5°C (0.9°F)) and speed, making a significant contribution to the containment of pandemics.

Using advanced facial recognition algorithms, the FaceStation 2 also minimises false readings, such as a person carrying a hot drink. Additionally, temperature measurements are fast and accurate using the thermographic camera with 19,200 pixels per frame which does not require a reference blackbody to measure temperature.

The camera can be easily connected with a FaceStation 2 via USB and comes with a bracket for convenient deployment on new and retrofit installs. The system delivers a combination of face recognition and skin temperature measurement and features a bypass mode for skin temperature measure only. It also enables organisations to save temperature data as event logs for better traceability.

Temperature detection functionality and benefits

When detecting a person with an elevated body temperature, the system can immediately block their access on-site (suspend their access rights and flag them up as being in self-isolation) and notify the health and safety officers (or responsible persons in the organisations), who can then proceed to take action according to their respective policies. The FaceStation 2 is among the world’s most compact face recognition stations, offering very high matching speeds, accuracy, and level of security.

Disclaimer: The products are not used to diagnose any medical conditions. The thermal cameras can identify individuals with skin temperature higher than a preset figure but should not be solely or primarily relied upon to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19, or any other disease. Only a licensed medical professional can determine if a person with elevated skin temperature is symptomatic of a specific medical condition.
