With the reopening of public spaces, Handy AV has launched HandyCHECKPOINT, a thermal detector which measures the skin temperature of individuals in high-traffic public places. Ideal for high-footfall environments such as retail, supermarkets, stations and public services, HandyCHECKPOINT provides peace of mind for businesses by detecting the temperature of each individual, to ensure they provide safe environments for their customers and employees as lockdown restrictions ease.
As individuals pass in front of a high-resolution, non-contact AI thermal detector, their skin temperature is automatically measured in milliseconds, alerting individuals with an elevated temperature to seek additional screening. In line with government guidelines, the device uses facial recognition to detect if the user is wearing a mask and reminds them of their obligations, via screen and audio message, to reinforce public safety regulations. Facial recognition can also be used for tracking time attendance and enabling automated entry systems.
HandyCHECKPOINT uses HandyAV’s Blue River digital service network to gain real-time information about individuals entering premises, enabling organisations to take measures to keep their businesses safe and secure.
HandyCHECKPOINT can be rapidly deployed at entry points within stores, schools, workplaces, transport stations and other high-footfall environments to quickly identify whether individuals present an elevated temperature. It provides fast detection with quoted times of 5ms, and an accuracy of ±0.2°C. Detection range is up to 1.2 metres, and integration with access control systems is possible.
