The current pandemic is scary for many reasons. The virus’ ability to quickly and efficiently hop from one person to the next causes many to feel uncomfortable in public spaces. This can lead to a lot of problems, and for a business, it creates an environment of distraction.
People aren’t going to be able to focus on their work if they’re preoccupied thinking about their safety. And right now, there are invisible threats to our personal safety.
Any system that can be put in place to mitigate this fear will provide benefits to every business. This could be directed at keeping your employees — or your customers and clients — happy and healthy.
Thermal temperature monitoring is a new service from Herring Technology. It is run through a camera system to detect the temperature of each person that passes through a certain area. Simply set up the equipment at the entrance of your business and watch as the intelligent software reads the temperature of each guest.
An alert will sound when a temperature is detected to be slightly elevated. Take this person aside and use a CDC-approved device to verify their temperature. From there, your business’ individual action plan will be used.
Here are the benefits you can expect from utilizing thermal temperature monitoring technology:
- Reliable Results
- Know Your Status
- Better Trust Others
- Non-Invasive Method
- Universal Line of Defense
- Quickly Check Groups of People
- Accurate Readings Keep Confidence Levels High
1. Reliable Results
The first benefit of thermal temperature monitoring is that you can trust the results. The technology is quite advanced in its ability to not only detect people that walk through a specific area, but to read their temperatures without stopping them.
This helps you know there aren’t people in your establishment that are actively displaying symptoms associated with COVID-19. A test like this is only useful if it’s reliable. And thermal temperature monitoring from Herring Technology has been tested and verified to be trustworthy.
2. Know Your Status
We can’t always discern how we feel. There are many potential factors that affect our current state. Eating the wrong food can make us feel sick. Not getting enough sleep can do the same. So although it might seem like we should be able to tell if we are coming down with an illness, it isn’t always this straightforward.
Getting your temperature taken is a direct sign of feeling fine or potentially showing a symptom of an illness.
3. Better Trust Others
And just how we can’t always trust ourselves to detect an illness, we can also have trust issues with those around us. We can’t be sure not only of how they feel, but how safe they’ve been when it comes to exposing themselves to large groups of people.
But knowing that everyone got their temperature checked before entering the building helps us to trust our coworkers that they’re not actively showing signs of infection.
4. Non-Invasive Method
There are many ways to get your temperature checked. Some methods are less pleasant than others. But it doesn’t have to be as intimate as putting a thermometer in your mouth to be a major inconvenience.
A forehead temperature detector might not be overly intimate, but it can still be a hassle. Thermal temperature monitoring doesn’t require each person to receive direct attention from an attendant. This keeps their day moving smoothly while also saving you the labor hours devoted simply to taking people’s temperatures.
5. Universal Line of Defense
Protecting your business during the pandemic only works if it’s universal. This means that any small breach in your protective methods can compromise the entire operation.
Thermal temperature monitoring is a quick and easy defense that addresses every person that walks through your door without exception. Covering every potential vulnerability makes it much less likely that something could sneak through and compromise your employees and clients.
6. Quickly Check Groups of People
It’s important to be thorough in your temperature checks and other security methods for your business. However, you don’t want to create a massive slow down of something as simple as people entering your business. And most systems that are meant to address large groups of people will usually create a bit of a line.
Thermal temperature monitoring allows people to freely enter the building in groups without necessitating a large stoppage of traffic. This keeps your visitors moving without inconveniencing them upon entry.
7. Accurate Readings Keep Confidence Levels High
An employee or client that is comfortable that they won’t be exposed to a contagious illness is much more likely to focus on their work or tasks at hand. This is beneficial not only to the company, but to the individual themself.
Everyone deserves to be comfortable at your place of business. Providing them the coverage of thermal temperature monitoring provides this comfortable environment.
