Thermal Cameras for Elevated Temperature Detection with Eagle Eye Cloud VMS

thermal camera images

The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS offers full support for thermal cameras with integrated analytics used in elevated temperature detection.

Some select thermal cameras have been specifically designed to detect the temperature of humans. These cameras are being deployed at entrances to buildings, businesses, theaters, retail stores and other areas where people gather. The goal is to have a reliable, contactless method of evaluating the temperature of customers and visitors, to determine if they need additional screening.

When these cameras are properly deployed, they provide a reasonable method to detect and report on elevated temperatures.

One of the features they have is the ability to output temperature data, in addition to video. The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS can receive, record, alert and report on this information, which simplifies the operationalization of elevated temperature screening. Additionally it’s possible to manage and view the cameras locally or remotely and store the video either locally or in the cloud.

How Elevated Temperature Screening Works

Traditional cameras have sensors that detect light and convert it into an image. The image is made of pixels that each have a specific color. Thermal cameras work by using a specialized sensor that can detect heat, instead of visible light, and then convert that to an image where each pixel has a specific temperature instead of a color. Different thermal cameras have different levels of accuracy. Many of the cameras designed for elevated temperature detection have a stated level of accuracy of +/- 0.5 F. This range is within the tolerance suggested by the FDA.

Most thermal cameras that have a high degree of accuracy are calibrated with a device known as a blackbody. A blackbody emits heat at a specific temperature, providing the camera a reliable, consistent point of reference. Additionally the cameras will detect a human face, and then examine the pixels on either the forehead or eyes to report the temperature of the subject.

How Businesses Leverage Thermal Cameras

Thermal cameras are often set up in entrances to facilities, ideally indoors. Many businesses are looking to thermal cameras to provide peace of mind to customers, visitors and employees, including:

thermal camera hospitals


thermal camera airports


thermal camera education


thermal camera offices


Using thermal cameras with the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS, businesses are able to pre-screen individuals as they enter the premises and ensure the health and safety of everyone on the premises.
