Platinum CCTV has developed a body temperature sensing security camera designed to help protect against pathogenic community spread by rapidly pre-screening individuals before they enter a facility.

The PT-BF5421-T Thermal/Visible Hybrid IP Security Camera  provides body temperature readings of ±0.3ºC, while alerting staff to institute facility protocols when needed. Each thermal image is readable up to three meters away, with both visible and audible signals sent whenever a high body temperature is detected.

The camera is available with rapid deployment tripods, recorder and licenses, or with the camera and/or blackbody alone for permanent mounting. It can also be partnered with Platinum CCTV's proprietary Advanced Video Management platform (AVM), which allows clients to quickly scan through days, weeks or months of security camera footage video.
