Honeywell Camera Detects Elevated Body Temperature

Jun 1, 2020 11:00:00 AM

As businesses everywhere begin reopening, safety will be the number one priority. Moving away from coronavirus looks like business owners implementing good hygiene and setting proper social distancing parameters for their employees. Honeywell, based out of North Carolina, is making this process easier for everyone. Let's take a closer look at what they are offering.


Honeywell’s ThermoRebellion system is capable of conducting non-invasive scans that could help to re-open businesses everywhere by accomplishing the goals outlined above. These cameras creates a safe way to ensure preliminary screenings of personnel entering a facility, and further, validates if they are wearing proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

“The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the culture of how buildings are managed by making apparent the need to ensure health and well-being in all aspects of our lives,” Vimal Kapur, president and CEO of Honeywell Building Technologies, explained. “Honeywell has developed outcome-based solutions that allow building owners to transparently address how they limit exposure to and the spread of viruses while supporting their business continuity needs in an uncertain environment. We’re giving them the data they need to confidently reassure their employees to accelerate their business operations.”

The temperature monitoring cameras can be utilized at entrances of any commercial building, such as factories or airports, distribution centers, entertainment venues, etc. This will hopefully continue to further limit the spread of not only COVID, but future diseases as well. 

New solutions like these are now providing business owners with a greater amount of control over critical health, safety and security factors capable of complying with ever changing building and occupancy standards and safety guidelines.

How It Works

By allowing individuals to pass in front of the high-resolution thermal camera, a person’s skin temperature can automatically be detected. The camera is capable of then displaying that temperature reading under two seconds after on an accompanying monitor, as well as confirming that the individual is meeting proper PPE requirements.

This information can be used to alert someone to seek out further medical screenings, or identify risks before they turn problematic, as well as providing property owners information related to who exactly is getting inside their buildings.

The solution is fairly easy to install and is simple to operate with little to no training, as it automatically logs data to simplify record-keeping for compliance. This reduces what could be an error-ridden manual tracking process.

Technologies like these from Honeywell, coupled with others working tirelessly to create solutions for our unprecedented times, are innovations geared towards making this world a safer place.
