The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and this pandemic has thrown a huge challenge to national resources and a race to adapt existing and more advanced technologies to innovate and deploy them. The use of Thermal Imaging Cameras has come in limelight, with sales of thermal and infrared imaging security cameras increasing drastically and becoming popular among consumers. Recently, several portable thermal imaging devices are currently being highlighted for their utmost potential to protect employees and each individual in public places. Each has slightly different and advanced capabilities and usage models, but all eventually aim to measure body temperature and alert possible victims infected by the virus using the consequent reading.
Researchers have found various scientific studies that support and prove that certain Telethermographic systems, also known as thermal imaging or thermal screening systems, can be used to measure the surface skin temperature of both objects and individuals. These systems are integrated with an infrared Thermal Camera and sometimes may also have a temperature reference source, all according to consumers’ requirements. These systems are further referred to as thermal imaging security systems. There are two types of Telethermographic systems, one is Thermal imaging systems and the other is non-contact infrared thermometers (NCITs), both use different forms of infrared technology to measure the temperature of an object as well as an individual.
Due to the current situation offices, workplaces, public places like stations or airports and even homes are using these types of security systems to keep themselves safe and secure from the infection by the virus.
Are you a business owner and worried about the spread of COVID-19? To support and win this fight against the novel coronavirus, VMukti is now offering Thermal Security Cameras. Many companies whether big or small, workplaces, private & government offices have already started using thermal cameras at their operations facilities to ease the process of screening employees and workers for high temperatures that may be related to the coronavirus. According to the US Centers for Disease Control, workers or employees with 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius should be immediately sent home and only permitted to return after three days only when the temperature gets normal.
Thermal camera functions while reading heat signatures on people and objects. These systems were traditionally deployed and installed in industrial or military settings but are seeing an industry boom and getting immense popularity since the uptick in containing the covid virus initiated. In comparison to the traditional way of measuring body temperature like a forehead thermometer or using a hand thermometer, thermal screening security cameras will significantly improve the speed of testing and even provide more accurate details. At the same time, deploying thermal imaging security cameras can help reduce cross-infection because the measurements take place through contactless screening. For instance, it would take an average of 4.2 hours to measure the temperature of 5,000 people using forehead or hand thermometers–at 3 or even more seconds per person. In contrast, it would only take 30 minutes or even less to measure the same amount of people using thermal imaging cameras–that means an average of 3 people would have their temperature recorded every second and that’s a wow factor.
VMukti’s vision on thermal imaging cameras-
VMukti Thermal imaging cameras provide an ideal and reliable solution for high-temperature detection during these covid-19 outbreaks pandemic. It even eliminates the risks involved in direct physical contact for measuring the temperature of each individual and ensures the safety of your people and surroundings. These security cameras are powered by advanced AI technology with body temperature measurement algorithms to maximize the efficiency of your deployed security systems. Thermal Camera for Body Temperature Measurement can help you to capture accurate details and detect any individuals infected by COVID-19, flu, or any other infections or disease which manifests with features of increased temperature screening. These thermal camera scanners can monitor a large group of people even in the queue at a single time and can pick out people with high temperatures in crowds by giving alerts. Utilize this advanced thermal technology to its maximum potential and discover the efficiency of VMukti thermal screening cameras by incorporating them as a part of your security system to ensure safe and secure premises.
Stop the spread of covid-19 by taking simple steps through efficient and contact-less screening.

Major benefits of thermal security camera
Proper usage of thermal security cameras
The person or official who handles the complete system should follow all manufacturer instructions and read the guidebook thoroughly to make sure the system is set up properly and located at an ideal place where it can measure surface temperature accurately and efficiently. The person who handles the whole system should be effectively trained to properly prepare both the location where the system will be used and the individual who is being evaluated, to increase the measurement accuracy. For details, the respective person can also see the standards and scientific papers for reference.
