Automated Temperature Screening

Keep Your Workplace Open and Safe

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, camera-agnostic thermal imaging system that supports automated, accurate temperature screening. While thermal cameras cannot detect or diagnose COVID-19, when used in accordance with the user manual, they can help detect elevated body temperature for individuals to undergo additional screening. Setup options include stand-alone, central or drivethrough 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 48 hours.

Identify Individuals with Fevers Prior to Building Entry

The Zyter ThermalAlert platform works with a wide variety of thermal imaging cameras to deliver continuous, real-time, no-contact temperature monitoring. Depending on the cameras used, it can automatically measure human body temperature (between 86°F to 113°F) within the temperature detection zone.

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 from some cameras, 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 enterprisewide 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 (4-8 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

Advanced Thermal Camera

ThermalAlert includes a high-resolution (1920 x1080 pixels) thermal camera and visual light. The camera calibration software ensures accuracy and helps identify people with elevated temperatures based on a configurable range of temperature readings. Cameras can be integrated with Zyter’s AI and automation-based platform if desired. Cameras are not FDA cleared or approved medical devices.

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.
