• More frequent deep cleaning
How can Advanced Overwatch help with Technology based Thermal Solutions?
Our systems offer easy, accurate temperature monitoring that is non-invasive and can be audited. The system can form part of a GDPR policy for compliance and is much more secure and cost effective than using pen, paper and an employee where personal data is exposed.
Technology: Thermal Temperature Monitoring Station
Key Applications: Small to mid-size retailers at employee entrances and front desks
The non-contact thermal temperature monitoring station is an easy-to-deploy solution that quickly measures skin temperature without the need for personal contact and provides an accurate temperature reading to help businesses and schools assess employees, customers, students and other visitors for elevated skin temperature.
The system features a simple, portable setup that consists of a seven-inch screen and a camera with dual, 2MP, CMOS sensors. Different installation options, such as floor, wall and desktop mounts, make the system a versatile solution for shops, restaurants, schools, and factories that need an efficient method to assess temperatures of employees, customers, students and other visitors. This contact-free solution for monitoring temperatures uses thermal imaging technology to reduce the risk of viral transmission and deliver peace of mind.
The system incorporates A.I. – businesses can upload their employee or visitor information. When the person enters the building, the system recognises the person and will log their temperature and check if they are wearing a mask. This information is then automatically stored along with the employee photo and can be searched by management for auditing.
Our solution has no recurring software fees, with desktop and mobile apps available to receive alerts. Warning email alerts can also be configured to notify management of high temperature, or employees who are not wearing a mask. The system can also be monitored live if required.
Additionally, the system can automatically open or lock a door, lift or turnstile based on if the person has access and is not showing signs of a high temperature. Use of Quick Scanning capability prevents congestion, it takes .2 of a second for the system to detect a human. Once detected, the system will audibly inform a guest or staff member to measure their temperature.
How does Thermal Scanning Detection work?
Developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the system features a simple, portable setup that consists of a seven-inch screen and a camera with dual, 2MP, CMOS sensors. This contact-free solution for monitoring temperatures uses thermal imaging technology to reduce the risk of viral transmission and deliver peace of mind.
Thermal imaging technology allows for swift, accurate, temperature readings without personal contact. The technology in a compact, user-friendly station that helps businesses safely monitor staff and visitors during the pandemic.
A subject must simply look at the camera for the system to get a temperature reading; the system will almost instantly (within 0.3 seconds) detect the person and ask them to present their wrist for a simple, non-contact scan and will indicate whether a temperature is elevated above an operator-defined threshold. A visual display on the screen, as well as an audio alert, will let the operator know immediately when an elevated temperature has been detected. An additional setting will alert the operator if the system detects that a subject is not wearing a mask. The Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) camera is well-suited for high-contrast lighting environments, such as building entrances, and its infrared sensor can detect temperatures within a ±0.3°C range of accuracy.
The ability to quickly scan people as they pass through an area reduces long lines and wait times for business owners who want to safeguard the health of their employees, customers or students.

Chances are, if you have been in to a retail outlet, restaurant, large factory or medical setting in Northern Ireland you will have seen one of our Thermal Scanner Temperature Monitoring Systems in use. Our systems are used to monitor the temperature of small teams of staff and low footfall of customers, to large industrial factories and warehouses with hundreds of employees. We have extensive references from some of Northern Ireland’s biggest businesses, available on request. The systems we install have been widely deployed world wide with notable companies such as McDonald’s installing the system in over 3000 of their outlets.
Why use a technology based solution to measure temperature?
Traditional body temperature detection measures can expose employees and customers to risk of cross infection.
- Contact risk is higher if pen and paper is used.
- Manual temperature monitoring often comes with high labour cost.
- Lower measurement efficiency can occur along with less accurate detection and can be more invasive for staff and customers.
- Training is required for staff in order to ensure correct measurements are being taken and that data is being held securely to comply with GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018.
