Digital Barriers releases real-time remote fever scanning solution with remote monitoring facility


Digital Barriers, a provider of edge-intelligent surveillance and security technologies, announces the release of a real-time remote fever scanning solution that adds remote monitoring to this capability. Fever scanning cameras help safeguard frontline workers against potential infection.

The addition of Digital Barriers’ government-grade remote monitoring enables this to be carried out without the need for close human contact, thereby cutting the risk of transmission. Providing both a thermal and HD optical camera, Digital Barriers’ unique EdgeVis Live technology ensures reliable real-time standoff temperature detection and profiling, even in locations with poor bandwidth and network connectivity.

The thermal camera analyses body temperature, a key indicator of the presence of a fever, and sounds an alarm when a specific temperature threshold is exceeded. The solution provides hospitals, primary care clinics, pharmacies, chemists, warehouses, distribution centres and commercial buildings with a highly effective means of quickly identifying staff and customers who show signs of an infection, minimising transmission on-site.

Digital Barriers’ products deliver live video streaming over ultra-low bandwidths, including live bodycam, vehicle and safe city solutions. Typically delivering bandwidth savings of more than 50%, the IoT products make wireless video surveillance a reality. The core technology was designed for security and defence but has much wider applications. It includes edge-AI analytics, such as facial recognition and intrusion detection.
