The back-to-work toolkit: We shortlist the most-requested solutions as our customers negotiate their post-lockdown route back to the workplace (4-minute read).

Heading back to work?

While phones and video calling are keeping us together whilst apart, we need to make sure we have measures in place to keep us apart when together! We have some key solutions to keep you safe and productive:

✓   Thermal cameras

✓   Flow management

✓   Unified communications

✓   Workspace shuffle support

Need more information on the above? Read on or let us know, we’re here to help!

Thermal Cameras:

Protect your premises and personnel with this non-contact method of reading body temperatures in real time:

  • Non-contact body temperature readings, avoiding unnecessary physical contact
  • Accurate to within ± 0.3˚C (in conjunction with a calibration device)
  • Detect elevated body temperatures which may indicate fever
  • Visual and audio alerts for abnormal temperature readings
  • Instrumental in track and trace of individuals
  • Efficient with readings in a second
  • Capable of multiple simultaneous readings within target zone

The addition of a thermal camera inside a site will enable safe screening of staff, clients, customers and guests on entry. While the camera cannot detect a fever or diagnose an illness, it will alert you to their elevated body temperature. You can then apply your own process for dealing with these individuals, minimising contamination at your site and mitigating risks of that person coming into contact with others present.

Please note, there is no such thing as a fever detection camera: read our exposé of the “fever detection” myth to find out why.

Flow management:

Monitor and manage the number of individuals on site or within an area with our people counting devices:

  • Counts individuals in and out at key access points separately
  • Single and multi-door functionality
  • Key for density control
  • Supports real-time uploading
  • Capable of target filtering by height
  • Reporting features

People counting can help to control the numbers in the building, therefore protecting the individuals on site by preventing over-crowding and enabling safe social distancing.
