iLobby debuts thermal body temperature scanning for COVID-19
July 21, 2020 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
A tech company has launched a smart tool to safeguard workplaces by automatically and discreetly scanning the body temperature of staff and visitors at sign-in, before they enter the facility.
iLobby FeverCheck features a high-precision, smart thermal camera that accurately scans for elevated body temperature – a common symptom of COVID-19 – in seconds as part of the regular sign-in process, and flags people who might present a health risk.
The system protects their privacy by unobtrusively sending an instant notification to security or management, who can deny access if necessary.
The technology, which was developed in consultation with iLobby’s manufacturing and corporate clients, is able to deliver precise body temperature readings using intelligent technology that can zero in to focus only on the person signing in, and is unaffected by external factors such as indoor temperature or a hot cup of coffee in a person’s hand.
Based on FDA and IEC guidelines, iLobby FeverCheck safeguards sensitive data by keeping it confidential and protecting personally identifiable information.
iLobby FeverCheck integrates into iLobby’s visitor sign-in technology, iLobby Visitor Management System.
Combined with the system’s other COVID-19 add-on features, such as touchless sign-in and COVID-19 questionnaires, the iLobby platform a comprehensive solution for fully automated COVID-19 screening in the workplace.
