Thermal Scanners for Residential Areas & Buildings
Safer, Faster, Smarter
Help America Restart Smart
Residential areas are as important to be protected from pandemics just as much as commercial establishments and healthcare institutions. Thermal scanners and temperature screening solutions can provide residential areas with technology that can detect flu symptoms like fever as well as other security benefits for all the residents.

What Are Thermal Imaging Cameras?
Thermal Imaging Cameras are able to measure an object’s temperature at high accuracy in real-time. They enable quick detection of elevated skin temperatures. They are capable of discovering and tracking people’s body temperature in crowded public areas. Thermal imaging equipment can also easily be installed and implemented in places such as airports, hospitals, clinics, office buildings, cruise ships, and any large public gathering location.
Benefits of Thermal Cameras for Residential Areas & Buildings
The person who handles the thermal imaging system is not required to be physically close to the person being evaluated. In fact, the person who handles the thermal imaging system could be in a different area or room.
Scientific studies show that, when used correctly, thermal imaging systems generally measure surface skin temperature accurately. This is very helpful as the fever has been proven to be
one of the most common symptoms of COVID-19.
The thermal imaging system may measure surface skin temperature faster than the typical forehead or oral (mouth) thermometer that requires a close distance or physical contact with the person being evaluated. This makes access and traffic flow faster and smoother.

Thermal Scanners in Action
Thermal Cameras help Stoneham apartment residents safe from COVID-19Stonehill Towers, an apartment complex in Stoneham, Massachusetts, is using thermal cameras to scan residents and workers for signs of fever. The thermal scanning solution is currently set up to monitor specific areas where there is frequent traffic. Because the building has 200 units and a large number of residents, the management opts for a temperature screening solution that can detect elevated body temperature among crowds. “With a lot of different systems, each person has to stop for a couple of seconds and take off their hat or take off their glasses,” Steve Hammes said. “With this system, it can monitor many people at the same time. They can file through and you don’t have to stop.”
Residential homes use FLIR camerasThe Wall Street Journal article titled Spending Millions to Keep a Home Safe highlighting how some homeowners secure high-end residential homes, including the latest technology. The story features FLIR CEO Andy Teich, who uses some of FLIR’s top-end thermal cameras to secure his home. Thermal imaging-equipped security cameras are designed to protect perimeters have seen broad use for years. Unlike traditional infrared (IR)-illuminated night vision, thermal imaging does not require ambient light. Rather, it sees the heat of objects or potential intruders, even through rain and light fog. Possibility of gated communities like exclusive subdivisions and suburbs installing thermal cameras to scan residents and visitors for fever are also being looked upon.
