Returning to a normal routine with COVID-19 still around worldwide, regulations require temperature verification at entrances of businesses and public places. Current temperature handheld solutions require costly additional staffing and it hampers traffic flow, creating bottlenecks.
A new Israeli technology helps fight the outbreak with minimum interference to the freedom of movement. The I-OnTemp unit developed by I-OnTop is placed in any public or employee entrance without any installation effort or training.
The device sends an immediate simultaneous visual and audio warnings to the attendant when the temperature exceeds pre-defined settings. The system can be configured and calibrated without delay. Only suspected persons have to be checked manually with the IR thermometer.
Or Shavit, CEO, and founder, said the company which specializes in the HLS field has adapted their technology to the civilian realm. They understood that in order to enable business continuity, it will not be efficient to check people’s temperature one by one. Their technology provides a simple but accurate solution that is smart, compact, flexible and user-friendly. The i-OnTemp plug-and-play system enables the measurement of the temperature of people on the move, and not one by one.
When the camera identifies someone with high temperature, it alerts and marks the person. Moreover, if the guard wasn’t aware he can always hear the alert and see the mark.
The camera operates in milliseconds, taking multiple shots at a time. When a person with a high temperature is detected, a double-check can be made, while the crowd can keep moving. This is the most important feature, it will help us go to normal and enable business continuity.
The device can be used in various places, such as schools, churches, office buildings, courthouses, malls, stadiums, financial institutions, etc., wherever there is a lot of crowds.
The Israeli device manufactured locally has been already supplied to customers in the US, Central America, and some European countries.
