A new all-in-one Temperature Monitoring Access Control (TMAC) solution from Dahua gives businesses and organisations the capability to rapidly scan workers and customers for abnormally high body temperatures, and to control access to any space according to a pre-set head count.

Typical applications might be the hospitality businesses, private and public sector organisations, education, travel terminals and retail environments, where this is a growing need for solutions that can re-establish recognisable normality. Distribution is via Habitech.

TMAC is a completely contactless system. The camera, temperature and facial recognition tech, along with a seven inch touch-screen display are built into a single ‘terminal’, which can be wall mounted or housed in a merchandisable custom floor or turnstile stand.

Developed for quick deployment in multiple reception and exit areas within the same building, the Dahua TMAC terminal can process facial images with 99 per cent accuracy and measure temperature to 0.3°C resolution in as little as 0.2 seconds, cutting waiting time almost to zero, says the company.

Data from each terminal is fed via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, using Dahua’s DSS Express software and NVR, to a local reference database, and the customer chooses the rules of access. Multi-layer authentication allows them to make temperature the single access test, bolt on facemask detection, add a customer flow limiting feature, or for added security, check facial ID or ID card criteria. In addition, TMAC can be integrated with in-house video displays to notify security staff of anyone tripping the system.

Typical trade cost for the solution is around £2k per standl. When integrated with third-party turnstile/barrier operation for example, virtually instantaneous multi-layer authentication scanning becomes part of a single automated access system for any building or venue, notes Dahua. New installations might opt for Dahua’s proprietary ‘fast-gate’ turnstile design.

‘In addition to the obvious safety advantages in lockdown, there are applications for a safer world beyond,’ says the specialist. ‘TMAC could be deployed for automatic school registration and pupil ID for instance, or to identify workers and visitors within a building in the event of an emergency. Almost certainly, the post-COVID order will be demanding this quality of scrutiny to restore day-to-day confidence in society and return to profitability.’
