Eagle Eye Cloud VMS Supports Body Temperature Measurement
Thermal cameras enabled with video analytics can assist with detection of people who may have elevated temperatures from COVID-19 and other conditions.
AUSTIN, Texas — Eagle Eye Networks announces enhancements to the company’s Cloud video management system (VMS) for full support of dual spectrum cameras used in elevated temperature detection.
The company states that Interest in the use of dual spectrum cameras with integrated analytics for locating faces and measuring temperature has greatly increased amongst its resellers as they look for tools to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
The Eagle Eye Cloud Video platform has always supported a large range of thermal cameras; however, some newer thermal cameras that claim higher accuracy operate simultaneously in the visible spectrum and the thermal spectrum.
They combine information from both spectrums to obtain temperature readings more accurately on the human face. These cameras output specific analytic information, which has been integrated into the Eagle Eye Cloud VMS. It is now simple to operationalize the deployment of these advanced cameras, view them remotely, record them to the cloud, and receive notifications when temperature set points are exceeded, according to the company.
“The quick support for this advanced thermal technology, hosted on the Eagle Eye Video API Platform, demonstrates the future proof nature of this service. Integration of new technologies, new cameras, and new capabilities are core to our open cloud platform,” says Dean Drako, CEO of Eagle Eye Networks.
Drako continues, “This is a great example of being able to rapidly deliver a solution, in response to an unexpected situation, with a technology that could prove to be very important. This is only possible with an open cloud platform.”
The Eagle Eye Cloud VMS is built on the company’s video API platform making integration of new technologies like this quick and straightforward, the company says. Eagle Eye has completed this integration, however, given the open nature of the Eagle Eye Video Platform anyone could have done it, the company says.
Eagle Eye has tested and integrated a series of thermal cameras at diverse price points, all with varying levels of accuracy. Some of the more accurate cameras utilize a blackbody calibration unit in the field of view to provide a temperature reference point.
Eagle Eye Cloud VMS support for Dual Spectrum Camera Elevated Temperature Measurement is available immediately. There is no additional cost for this support.
The Cloud VMS is fully integrated with the access control systems, such as the Cloud-based Brivo Access, which can connect the temperature measurements to the names of people entering the building.
