As businesses and organizations transition to a new normal due to COVID-19, safety has become paramount. Where there are high concentrations of people—hospitals, office buildings, schools, shopping malls, airports, and train stations, for example—new steps must be put in place like temperature monitoring to keep people safe. Identifying those with elevated body temperatures before they enter a building enables them to be redirected to a different entrance or removed from the general population.
Unfortunately, most available temperature monitoring solutions require manual intervention and are typically limited to one person being checked at a time. Not only does this create long lines and delays, the close contact that occurs during human-to-human temperature screening increases the risk of exposure for both parties. What’s more, many thermal imaging solutions take time to implement or integrate into existing networks, causing further delay and frustration.
Fortunately, there’s Zyter ThermalAlert—a smart imaging system that supports automated, accurate mass temperature screening. Setup options include stand-alone, central, or drive-through detection modes and include the ability to connect to an existing network. Best of all, Zyter ThermalAlert can be up and running as a stand-alone solution in just forty-eight hours.
Zyter ThermalAlert is a dual spectrum thermal imaging solution that delivers continuous, real-time, no-contact temperature monitoring. It is able to measure human body temperature (between 86°F to 113°F) of up to six people simultaneously within the temperature detection zone from a distance of up to twenty feet. This far surpasses other available solutions that typically can only detect human temperatures from a distance of one to six feet.
If a high temperature is detected, SMS, email, and/or single/multi-camera smart alerts are sent to individuals and care teams via monitors, mobile devices or the Internet. With a detection time of less than one second and accuracy of ≤ ± 0.5°F, it’s now possible to identify individuals with a fever before they enter your facility so you can keep your workplace open while protecting both employees and visitors.
Flexible Deployment Options
Zyter ThermalAlert can be deployed as a stand-alone system or upgraded for enterprise-wide or multi-site integration as an IoT platform with secure messaging and secure collaboration. Common deployments include:
Primary access monitoring to manage the flow of people at the primary entrance door of a facility (typical order is two units per main door)
Secondary access monitoring to monitor the flow within a facility (four to eight units to monitor single, low volume entryways or with a single control room monitoring all cameras)
Drive-through clinics and tents using four cameras; images can be managed on a single iPad or tablet.
Zyter could not source a suitable, rugged, high performance camera so they developed their own. ThermalAlert includes a high-resolution (1920-by-1080 pixels) thermal camera and visual light. Our proprietary camera calibration software ensures accuracy and helps identify people at higher risk for infection based on a configurable range of temperature readings. Cameras can be integrated with Zyter’s AI and automation-based platform if desired.
Customizable Dashboard for Real-Time Monitoring
Zyter ThermalAlert includes a customizable dashboard that displays optical and thermal images, as well as body temperatures. From the dashboard, users can monitor images and send alerts to care teams. In addition, an infection control module can be applied to identified cases for additional analysis and reporting.
