Safely screening at entryways

As quickly as the world is changing, so is the technology. At ECT Services we are already on version 2 of our newest product: ScreenerTi. We first began telling you about our thermal temperature screening system back in June.

Now that we know more about how the virus works, we continue to update and improve the product.  Fever continues to be one of the most key symptoms in diagnosing Covid-19.  As such, it is critical for organizations to quickly and accurately check each mployee’s temperature and demonstrate these cheks are being completed each and every day.

Screener Ti serves as a preliminary screening device. Picture the entryway to a building with a Screener Ti system. One at a time, individuals will stand in front of the scanner, receive a pass light and proceed to work. The time to get screened takes no longer than digital toll devices do on highways, and no longer than it does to swipe a cardkey and proceed through a turnstile.

Today, that cardkey can be fully integrated with the ScreenerTi system. Consider an office building with a large lobby, several banks of turnstiles and social distancing mandated. It would be difficult to have each turnstile station “manned.”

Today, if an individual does not receive a “pass” indication, the card key of that person can be locked to prevent access to the building. The system can also be set up to send an email to the employee and an employee’s supervisor alerting them of the failure and cardkey lock. In order to remain HIPAA-compliant, a code assigned to employees is utilized rather than name-sharing. The HR department, for example, with appropriate authority for access to the information would have access to names.

We’ve had a few inquiries as to whether or not facial recognition software is included in our product. Due to HIPAA regulations, it is not. Privacy is still a very important thing to consider on this matter, while we try to navigate public safety as a community.

If your company or building is looking to integrate a temperature scanning system to help keep your employees safer, we’d love to speak with you about it. Contact us at (800) 567-1180 or via our website.

Efficient Temperature Checks for Employees/Customers/Guests now available.

At ECT Services, our mission is to find solutions that meet the needs of our customers. We recently shared with you our space distribution intelligent software, Space Vi. Today we want to share another brand-new technology we’ve created called Screener Ti.

Screener Ti is an intelligent thermal imaging screener which serves as a first-stop screener for people headed into a space. As states continue to slowly open up business and people head back to work, the concerns we heard from our customers regarding temperature checks included determining who on their internal staff would be on “temp check duty.” These included:

  • A security guard preventing an employee from entering the building (even with a fever) could cause an issue between fellow employees;
  • An employee taking temperature checks is not being productive in their actual job if they are stationed at the entrance for hours at a time;
  • Any employee charged with taking the temperature of other employees is inherently breaking the rule to stay six feet apart and is exposing themselves to infection regularly.

From these challenges, a solution was born. Screener Ti serves as a preliminary screening device. Picture the entryway to a building with a Screener Ti system. One at a time, individuals will stand in front of the scanner, receive a pass light and proceed to work. The time to get screened takes no longer than digital toll devices do on highways, and no longer than it does to swipe a cardkey and proceed through a turnstile.

Screener Ti is not a medical device, it is a first-stop system. Once a person receives a “pass” they may enter. If they do not receive a “pass” then they are required to receive a second screening which could be performed by someone in proper PPE. This second screening can now be more efficient as it’s allowed all those cleared for work to enter quickly.

This technology meets the guidelines on thermal imaging put forth by the FDA. The device is not necessarily HIPAA-compliant because it is not required to be. It collects no data and takes no photographs.

We’ve moved ahead so quickly with this new product line we already have it on its way into several businesses including: an office building in Louisville, Kentucky, a logistics fulfillment center also in Louisville, Kentucky and a summer camp in North Carolina.

We’d be happy to help find the right solution for your company’s team. Contact us here for more information.
