Free online Hikvision training courses in using thermal cameras for temperature screening


Hikvision UK & Ireland offering DVS customers the opportunity to undertake free online training on its temperature screening thermal products and solutions.

Hikvision’s temperature screening thermographic cameras are designed for the detection of elevated skin temperatures so as to achieve rapid preliminary screening in public areas. Actual core body temperatures should be further confirmed using clinical measurement devices. Under any circumstances, it is highly recommended to use Hikvision’s thermographic cameras in accordance with local laws and regulations.

Gary Harmer, Hikvision UK & Ireland Sales Director, said the temperature screening solutions can rapidly and effectively detect high temperatures in work and public environments. “It’s imperative that we utilize intelligent, efficient methods to help reduce the spread of the virus,” he said. “Our thermal solutions are ideal for use in preliminary  screening applications. They are able to detect temperatures in individuals in one second, creating an alert if the indicated temperature is elevated outside of the set parameters, without the need for physical contact, and can detect multiple people simultaneously. Because of their advanced AI software engines, false alarms caused by heat from other sources are minimised.”

Hikvision’s screening solutions include bullet and turret-based camera set-ups as well as handheld camera systems.

The free online temperature screening solution courses cover basic knowledge on thermal cameras, how they can be used in the fever screening application, which products are suitable for use in these solutions and how they should be optimally configured.
