As Ontario begins to reopen the economy, many businesses are faced with concerns surrounding how to ‘re-open’ during a global pandemic. Many employees are fearful to return to work and business leaders are concerned that one case of COVID-19 among their workforce could be disastrous for workforce productivity and morale. Therefore, it is imperative that business leaders have a system in place to screen employees for fever symptoms prior to entering the workforce. 

The traditional method of screening for fevers is labour intensive and slow, often resulting in long line ups to get into work and precious time/money spent. 

As a result, Security ONE Alarm Systems has launched a ‘Fever Detection Screening Service’ using HD thermal cameras that are linked to a sophisticated software program to accurately and efficiently screen employees entering the workplace. 

The cameras are positioned in the entrance ways of the facility and can screen up to 30 employees at once, allowing for quick and non-intrusive assessment of elevated skin temperatures. If an employee is determined to surpass the skin temperature threshold set by the software, an audible alarm will sound, and that employee can be further examined to assess their condition prior to entering the workforce. 

President & CEO, Chris Neumann, shares that “it’s amazing to see how quickly our technology partners have stepped up to repurpose thermal security technology for a new application that can help our business clients in a big way. We’ve seen major interest in the manufacturing, agriculture and greenhouse space since launching this service last month.” 

Security ONE’s Director of Technical Service, Jeff Tavares, explains that “it was important for us to conduct our own in-house testing of this technology and really understand how to configure the product to ensure accurate readings. There are a lot of products on the market and it was our job to determine the most reliable solution for our clients.”

Business leaders are invited to reach out to Security ONE for a customized courtesy demonstration of this new service at 519-326-2020 or by email at sales@securityonealarm.com
