Thermal imaging for elevated skin temperature screening

EST systems use thermal imaging technology to screen people for signs of an elevated skin temperature. All objects emit infrared light—a type of radiant energy that's invisible to the human eye that we feel as heat. Thermal imaging cameras use a special lens that focuses infrared light to read relative skin surface temperature and help detect an elevated body temperature.

EST systems are regulated by the FDA.* At ADT Commercial, we are focused on bringing the best, FDA-cleared products to our customers.

* Devices cleared through the FDA 510(k) process must be used as part of an adjunctive system, whereby cameras are used alongside a primary means of confirming a fever, such as a medical thermometer.

We offer solutions with varied specifications to help fit our client's application with the appropriate options. We will help you to understand the merits, limitations, and impact of the various solutions, and how they might fit into a multilayered approach to safety that best meets the needs of your organization.
