Automatic Systems launches Integrated Temperature & Mask Monitoring Solutions
Automatic Systems can now integrate body temperature measurement and mask detection monitoring solutions to our physical access control equipment. These innovative solutions are available for new installations and retrofits for existing Automatic Systems equipment.
Automatic Systems provides new functionalities with a unique optimized software that operates each of its pedestrian products, resulting in a unique and efficient solution to help public and private organisations respect new health and social distancing rules in order to protect their visitors and employees.
Automatic Systems’ equipment’s’ superior ability to help limit access to authorized individuals and detect passage fraud attempts with IP ready connectivity solutions, are further enhanced to provide a User Friendly access control that can be used in applications where credential authentication is not required but approval by measuring body temperature and/ or confirmation of use of protective masks is.
At the same, the number of authorized users is counted and can help limit the presence of too many people within a designated area. A display shows the count-down presence allowance status to users on screens remotely or at entrances, and helps reinforce health measures to combat the spread of viruses like the Covid-19.
This new pre-integrated solution can be quickly implemented and is recommended for a wide range of applications, including government buildings, public offices, retail spaces, factories, shops, supermarkets, health centres, leisure centres, hospitals, public restrooms, museums, stadiums, swimming pools, conference venues, schools and universities etc., and any application where it is necessary to not exceed the maximum quantity of people in a specific area.
These monitoring solutions are compatible with most of Automatic Systems’ gates. It is also possible to retrofit the solution with existing installations via a standalone post. The optical turnstiles or speed gates are available with wider lanes for ADA compatibility (reduced mobility users).
Important Information and Disclaimer of Warranty and Liability
Automatic Systems (“AS”) solutions use a thermographic camera installed in its turnstiles and access control systems (the “Equipment”) designed to detect skin-surface temperatures and determine whether face masks are being worn. The purpose of the Equipment is to achieve rapid preliminary screening and detection in public areas. The following information should be reviewed carefully when considering whether to purchase and install the Equipment.
i. A person’s actual core body temperature may not be properly detected by the thermographic camera due to measurement tolerances, and should be independently confirmed by using clinical measurement devices
ii. The thermographic camera is not capable of assessing whether a person is infected by Covid-19 or by any other disease.
iii. The thermographic camera is not, and should not be used as, a medical device.
iv. Local laws and regulations, including but not limited to those protecting personal data protection and privacy, may:
a. prohibit the use of thermographic cameras and facial detection,
b. condition such use on prior authorization by public authorities or private entities,
c. require that the AS customer, as an employer, comply with applicable employment laws governing the use of thermographic cameras and facial detection solutions with respect to its employees, and/or
d. impose upon the AS customer a legal obligation to publicly post adequate notice that the Equipment is being used.
v. AS disclaims, with respect to the purchase and use of the Equipment:
a. Any warranties, conditions or other terms implied by any law (including as to merchantability, satisfactory quality or fitness for a particular purpose, and the equivalents thereof under the laws of any jurisdiction),
b. Any liabilities, costs or damages, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, arising out of, or in connection with, the purchase and use of thermographic cameras and facial detection equipment, and
c. Any liabilities for any violation of local personal data protection, privacy and/or employment laws or regulations in connection with the use by any person of the Equipment.
