Images and heat maps are shown in the ACS interface
The integration enables the user to see the temperature data collected by Hikvision in their Sigur interface. There are two data representation modes:
heat map of a room
temperature measurements of people, who are seen on the screen
Connecting cameras to your doors
In Sigur, you can connect cameras to your doors (or another kind of checkpoints) so that the operator can effectively monitor the situation at each respective checkpoint and see the temperature measurements of every person on camera or view a heat map of the area.
Generally, one 4-channel camera is used per checkpoint: two channels are for video streaming and two channels are for temperature readings. In Sigur, you can choose which of the four channels you want to see at any moment.
Event alarms and responses
You can set two temperature limits in the ACS (a warning and an alarm) and configure respective responses to them.
Slight rise in the temperature. For instance, 37.1 temperature has been recorded, which might be considered elevated but might not be a sign of an infectious disease (it might be that a person just came from a warmer place or this temperature can even be a normal temperature for them). In this case, the system can show a pop-up window with a warning to the security officer.
Significant rise of the body temperature, e.g. 38.4. In this case, it is highly possible that the person is ill, and the ACS will react more stringently, such as it can deny the access for this employee, while the security officer will see on the screen a safety guidance with instructions on what to do in case of a contact with a potentially infected person.
Hikvision thermal cameras do not have an additional blackbody calibrator and thus have a tolerance of +/- 0.5°C. Therefore, to avoid false alarms, the minimum warning temperature is recommended to be set within the range of 36.6 + 0.5 = 37.1; and the minimum alarm temperature is recommended to be set at 37.3 and above.
Both types of events are recorded in the system and can be accessed in the ACS event archive.
All fever or unknown card notifications are highlighted in red and can be used to create an automated reaction in the physical access control system, such as SMS notification of designated employees.
