Access control with thermal cameras
The AAC (Advanced Access Control) module of CHECKINGplan® allows the integration of facial recognition and thermal measurement capabilities for secure access control, also in terms of health.
The spread of diseases such as Covid-19 make it necessary to implement complementary measures to ensure business continuity and the safety of people accessing different facilities.
The module, which can work independently or combined with other CHECKINGplan functionalities (Time Log, Work Reports, Running Checklist, etc.), provides real-time identification of subjects exceeding a configured thermal threshold, and then sending a silent warning to the control monitor or even to security and access personnel wearables.
The cameras are installed to cover the access area. Depending on the size and characteristics of the access area, the necessary units will be installed. The number of cameras depends on the number of access points, m2 to be covered, and influx of people (simultaneous analysis required).
On identifying a positive (a subject that exceeds the temperature defined in the system), the control post is notified (reception, security, etc.) and the subject can be viewed in order to proceed according to the organisation’s protocols.
In controlled or linear access points, the system is integrated with the turnstiles, locks or other pre-existing system to enable opening only in the case of a negative result. In this case, the cameras analyse each access line individually.
Anonymous operation allows the subject to be notified exclusively of the result or temperature, via e-mail, SMS or other internal channels of the organisation. This can be done by integrating the CHECKINGplan facial recognition module (compatible with thermal cameras), or by combining both the subject identification (e.g., by means of access card, biometrics such as fingerprint, etc.) and thermal measurement in a lineal access.
The system counts the recognitions made, regardless of whether they provided negative or positive results in thermal detection.
This enables capacity control that generates statistical data, or even integration into control processes to restrict access once the set capacity levels have been reached.
Records all of the recognitions made, regardless of whether they are negative or positive in thermal detection.
This makes it possible to have a capacity control that offers statistical data or even to integrate it into control processes to restrict access once the set capacity levels have been reached.
The information, besides being integrated with the rest of the CHECKINGPlan modules, can be integrated with different third-party systems, both for control and security, as well as for blocking and opening physical access systems, visual signals (traffic lights to allow access or stop it), etc.
In addition, the system can be integrated with web pages and other platforms in order to offer to clients or users indicators of capacity (previously treated) and thus to help them make the best decision on when to go to its facilities.
In general, the module is useful in all environments where health access control is required due to contact risk or statistical fines.
The intelligent video system with an integrated high-performance thermal image sensor takes full advantage of the M16.
Camera design. Thanks to the two directly adjacent lenses, there is also a thermal overlay function with image overlay (thermal and optical) to determine the exact location of hotspots, such as fires, in a visible image.
“TR” here stands for thermal radiometry. This means that, in addition to carrying out existing MOBOTIX thermal camera functions, these cameras have a calibrated thermal image sensor that allows them to measure thermal radiation over the entire image area, even in individual pixels. The power consumption of a MOBOTIX Thermal TR is less than 8 watts.
The most flexible dual thermal camera on the market, offering connection to one or two outdoor devices, thermal sensor modules, and concealable camera module with sensor cables up to 3 metres long.
The S16 proves that even thermal cameras can have discreet installations.
Temperature values measured by TR technology can automatically trigger events from the camera (alarm, call, activation of a signal output, etc.) if the temperature rises above or drops below a set frequency range.
