Biometric thermal imaging cameras detect possible COVID-19 fevers

April 6, 2020
Easy-to-install thermal imaging camera system is now available through Midwest Alarm and its BCI Integrated Solutions subsidiary.

Now available through BCI Integrated Solutions and Midwest Alarm, a new thermal imaging system can be easily installed and programmed to detect elevated skin temperature in busy environments such as airports, hospitals, clinics, office buildings, cruise ships, and any large public gathering location.

Per the companies, "It could become a new workplace standard in the first line of defense against COVID-19. It's called a thermal imaging camera. Armed with advanced thermal imaging technology, the camera scans body temperatures of everyone entering a space, enabling instant detection of elevated skin temperatures. Whether they enter as an individual or as a group, if someone has a fever, the system sounds the alarm."

Tyler Blake, Chief Operating Officer at BCI, reminds prospective customers that the company's new Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution "is not a medical device and is not designed or intended for diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of any disease or condition."

Blake adds, "However, the solution is a screening tool that businesses and households can use as part of a holistic biosecurity plan to identify individuals with elevated skin temperature compared to a customizable reference temperature upon entering their premises."

Based in Florida with offices in Tampa, Fort Myers, Gainesville and Orlando, BCI Integrated Solutions is a licensed provider of specialized innovative electronic building solutions and low voltage systems.

BCI is owned by Midwest Alarm of South Dakota with additional offices in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Sioux City, Iowa, Omaha, Nebraska and Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Midwest Alarm | BCI team expertly designs and installs audio video, security, structured cabling, and life safety systems.
