The Honeywell ThermoRebellion temperature monitoring solution, says the company, can be rapidly deployed at the entryway of a factory, airport, distribution center, stadium or other commercial buildings to quickly and efficiently identify whether personnel exhibit an elevated facial temperature. As individuals pass in front of a high-resolution, thermal imaging camera, their skin temperature is automatically detected within two seconds and displayed on an accompanying monitor.
"Protecting worker safety is the top priority for any building operator and today, more than ever, managers are looking for innovative solutions to enhance their health screening processes," says Renaud Mazarguil, president of Honeywell's Gas Analysis and Safety business. "We've developed this breakthrough technology to automate and streamline the monitoring of an individual's temperature and reduce the need for invasive monitoring. Honeywell is committed to developing new solutions to help workers, families and communities stay safe."
The system can alert a person with an elevated temperature to seek additional screening, as well as identify if individuals are wearing the required personal protective equipment needed for entering the building. In addition, operators gain reliable, real-time information about personnel entering their facilities enabling them to take measures to keep their premises safe and secure.
The solution incorporates software powered by AI allowing for each individual pixel captured by the camera to be rapidly assessed for elevated temperature. The system, says the company, is easy to install and commission, and it is simple to operate with minimal training using an intuitive graphical user interface. The system also automatically logs data to simplify and standardize record-keeping for compliance, reducing the need for potentially error-prone manual tracking processes.
The system integrates seamlessly with the company's Forge platform and Healthy Building solutions that provide a holistic view of a building's health based on key factors such as air quality, social distancing, occupant flow, sanitation, wellness density, and governance adherence.
