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 Grocery, Mall, and Retail
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
According to Neil Saunders, Managing Director of GlobalData Retail, more than 190,000 stores have temporarily closed due to COVID-19, accounting for nearly 50% of U.S. retail square footage. In response to the challenges facing the retail industry, Dahua Technology, a video-centric smart IoT solution and service provider, has launched a professional Retail Epidemic Safety Protection Solution to help retailers maintain safe operations and improve business efficiency during the pandemic. The Dahua thermal body temperature monitoring camera allows highly accurate body temperature monitoring. With built-in AI algorithm, it can simultaneously monitor a group of people from up to 3-metre distance, enabling fast and non-contact access. When installed at the entrances of supermarkets and shopping malls, it can help retailers with preliminary screening of employees and customers with abnormal body temperature.
Malls and supermarkets across the UAE are using airport-style thermal scanners to tackle the spread of coronavirus. Sites also stepped up deep-cleaning protocols to ensure public places can remain open and free of the virus. Managers said those with a high temperature readings would be turned away or sent to nearby medical teams for further testing. Some venues have introduced 24-hour cleaning and are using teams to disinfect shopping trolleys, lift buttons and food-court tables. In Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, more than 20 Dahua thermal cameras were placed in eight malls managed by the same company. “We have fixed the scanners in some of the main entry and exit points in all eight properties,” said Wajeb Al Khoury, director of Line Investments and Property, part of supermarket chain Lulu Group.
