New technology has been introduced to help provide businesses with an adequate solution for a COVID-secure workplace. There is a wide range of applications of this technology designed to allow businesses to prepare for new standards with temperature & mask detection video systems. This makes it quicker and easier to monitor the safety of staff and customers by carrying out temperature checks and mask detection automatically. If you’re looking for flexible temperature screening and mask detection solutions for your business, our expert team at Red Mountain Technology Solutions can give you all the advice you need.

How Do Temperature & Mask Detection Video Systems Work?

High-tech video systems can be implemented in order to check both temperatures and whether people are wearing masks. The system then sends an alert to the relevant operators in order to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. Here’s how the system works.

Temperature Checks

State-of-the-art cameras and sensors are able to measure several people’s temperature at once. This is actually done using AI technology. The cameras are able to focus on human skin-surface temperatures rather than detecting heat from other sources. This reduces the risk of false alarms. An algorithm is used to check people’s temperature against the ambient temperature of the room and also factors in how far away the subject is.

If a person with a high temperature is detected then an audio alarm is set off immediately. This sends a notification to the system operators that there is someone with a higher than the safe level temperature in the building. The system can even integrate to your access control system and prevent entry from scanning a proximity card.

Mask Detection

These highly intelligent cameras can also detect whether someone is wearing a face covering or not. This is done using advanced analytics. The system is programmed with face shape data which it uses to compare with the person on camera. This is how the video system can detect if someone is wearing a mask or not.

Similar to the temperature check system, an alert is sent when somebody is detected not wearing a mask or face covering. You can select an authorized person to receive this alert. It’s a good way to keep on top of intruders and to ensure all visitors to your premises are adhering to the required safety standards.

This system can be implemented in a number of scenarios where masks are required. These can include:

  • Hospitals & healthcare organizations
  • Offices
  • Shops
  • Sports venues
  • Airports and train stations
  • Entertainment and hospitality industry

The mask detection technology can be connected to most surveillance systems installed at your premises. Its accuracy is extremely high and all data is recorded and stored automatically. This means you have access to reports at any time.

The new safety standards in place have meant more pressure on businesses to provide a secure environment. With higher volumes of people, monitoring temperature and mask detection can be challenging to say the least. With these new technological solutions, it’s much simpler.
