The video recording specialist digital ally received an order for 42 ThermoVu temperature sensing devices from the Municipality of Linn County, KS. The contactless devices will be deployed in various public places, including schools, parks, county offices and the local courthouse, where they will be used to monitor the health of people entering the facilities.
The ThermoVu takes a person’s temperature from the wrist and has facial recognition capabilities that support access control applications. Devices can be configured to deny access to those whose faces are not registered in the system or to block those with high temperatures. In the latter case, the device is intended to slow the spread of COVID-19.
“We’re providing municipalities and the citizens they serve with the tools to fight COVID-19,” said Stan Ross, CEO of Digital Ally. “The ThermoVu unit is a very versatile device that can be used in many situations. We are proud to partner with Linn County in taking the necessary steps to provide a safe working and living environment for its citizens. »
The news comes shortly after Digital Ally supplied ThermoVu units to Major League soccer team Sporting Kansas City, which installed the units at its Children’s Mercy Park stadium for a game on August 25. Linn County is the first municipality to implement ThermoVu on a community. large scale. Digital Ally is also based in the state of Kansas.
The ThermoVu, meanwhile, is one of many temperature control solutions to emerge over the past few months. Sentry Security and VPR launched their own scanners earlier this summer.
