Managers: Minimize Staff Health Risks With AnyVision’s Temperature Screening Kiosks
If you’re like every other manager and property owner in the Austin, TX, area, you’re worried. You know you need to get back to business to stay profitable, and that often involves bringing more employees into the office. And more people inside one place, even with masks and social-distancing practices, involves risk.
Stop illness right at the door with elevated temperature detection systems! Temperature screening cameras like those from Avigilon and kiosks might prevent many ill employees, clients and vendors from entering your building: We’ll focus more on kiosks today. Stay tuned to see why we recommend this solution, which brand we install and more.
Use Solutions that Work Together for Better Results
One of the things that tend to happen with acquiring infrastructure of all types is that they become islands without connections and interoperability to other islands. In business, companies often buy software solutions based on a specific need – human resources, production, customer service, and so on. Often, they invest heavily in customizing these systems for their needs. There almost always comes a time when these systems need to share information with each other for the business, and that’s when companies often find out how difficult and expensive it can get.
If you are a school administrator at any level, you can undoubtedly come up with these types of examples. Often inertia keeps your organization from moving forward with a new initiative to integrate systems at the cost of productivity, money, and other resources. Compound that with the fact that most school systems are typically strapped for funding, and often the subpar status quo continues.
ASAP Security Services has a long history of serving school systems around Texas with security and technology solutions. We not only offer point solutions, but we also encourage school districts to think about school safety systems strategically, as the safety of our kids is paramount. And that means looking at security solutions that work together, both proactively and reactively, to keep schools in the Rio Grande Valley and Texas as safe as possible.
Read on for some examples of this holistic approach to school security.
How Video Analytics Systems Help Maintain Social Distancing
Are you a user of Google Photos? Or the Photos App on your iPhone or other Apple device? Did you know you could search for pictures of your dog in your photo library? Or that you can search for people? Chances are you already do this regularly or know about it. Today's consumer security cameras also have varying levels of facial and pet recognition.
That capability has taken many years of software development to perfect and make available in a way that works consistently. It is a combination of powerful hardware, sophisticated software algorithms, and cloud computing. All the sharing that we do of photos and videos has accelerated the development of these technologies, as analyzing petabytes of data helps perfect the software algorithms.
That same advanced technology may hold the key to helping combat the spread of COVID-19. One of the challenges in maintaining social distancing is keeping tabs on the number of people in a given location. It can and has been done manually, but for large venues and facilities with multiple entrances, it becomes a daunting challenge. Fortunately, some forthcoming occupancy control system solutions may help respond to the problem.
Read on to learn how video analytics technology for occupancy control can help curb the spread in Houston and major locations throughout Texas.
