Detect High Temperature To Protect Against Corona Viruses

Available to buy or hire, iDetect from Helios Fire Systems is a thermal imaging camera that can be used alongside other body temperature screening tools for detecting elevated skin temperature.

In light of the global outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), which is now officially a pandemic, Government and local authorities are becoming more and more concerned about slowing the spread of infection and reducing the possibilities of a second wave.

Although no thermal cameras can detect or diagnose the coronavirus, Helios Fire Systems iDetect cameras can be used as a primary detection system, alongside other body temperature screening tools for detecting elevated skin temperature in high-traffic public places through rapid, accurate individual screening.

When the iDetect thermal camera identifies critical temperatures of the skin in key areas – especially the corner of the eye and forehead – then the person may be selected for additional screening.

Identifying individuals with elevated body temperature (EBT) who should then be further screened with virus-specific diagnostic tests, can help reduce or dramatically slow the spread of viruses and infections.

The iDetect thermal image camera must be able to image the inner corner of the eye (tearduct) when screening for EBT. This can only be achieved with high resolution sensors. iDetect utilises high resolution state- of-the-art sensors with innovative visual software for speedy detection and reporting to personnel.

Using Helios Fire Systems iDetect thermal cameras, officials can be more discrete, efficient and effective in identifying individuals that need further screening with virus-specific tests.


A variety of institutions are using thermal screening as an EBT detection method and as part of employee health and screening (EH&S). It is deal for high traffic locations such as airports, supermarkets, railway stations, education establishments, hotels and sporting venues and can be positioned at entrances to quickly identify risk.
