Tackle Coronavirus with Technology
Updated: May 26, 2020
As we all gear up to restart our jobs and businesses post lockdown period, there are some things that we need to keep in mind before we step out. We no longer live in a normal world, the new 'normal' will be masks, gloves, sanitization, surveillance and temperature detection. As we prepare to accept and embrace this new reality, there will be many changes in the way we search, shop & sell goods and services.
In this post, we are going to discuss some ways in which new technology can help your business & workplace stay secure from coronavirus and be better prepared for the upcoming challenges.
Thermal Security Cameras
A thermal imaging camera is essentially a heat sensor capable of detecting tiny differences in temperature. The camera collects infrared radiation from objects and creates an electronic image based on information about the temperature differences.
So for example, if the camera detects someone with a high temperature than the set threshold, it gives out an audible warning or a notifies someone via text, email or mobile notifications. Some companies dealing with these technologies currently are Hikvision, Dahua, Honeywell & Bosch Systems.
Thermal Access Controls
Thermal access control devices are facility management hardware connected to an entrance or exit door. These devices are mainly for staff working in factories, kitchens, offices, and so forth. The staff is enrolled on the device via face recognition and have to scan their face for the door to open. Thermal access controls detect the temperature of the staff and allow them entry based only if their temperature meets the threshold specified. If the temperature is above the threshold, the device sends out notifications and doesn't unlock the door. Thus it ensures complete protection for your on-premise business and employees.
Remote Communications Solutions
It seems most businesses after the lockdown finishes, will not be asking all of their staff to be present physically at workplaces. This creates a challenge of how the employees stay in touch with their office peers. Via remote communication methods like IP Phones & VPN Clients, employees can not only be productive whilst staying at home but also be in touch with the office environment and can contact clients using IP phones or mobile apps via their homes.
Secure and remote communications will become essential in the long run as more and more businesses look to communicate with clients using cost effective and efficient technologies.
