Invid Thermal Camera Installation
Thermal cameras are being used to automatically monitor elevated body temperature (EBT) and our Security Team has been busy installing them in the Bay Area. Each person entering the building gets screened one at a time. If a person has a fever, an alarm notification will be sent and they won’t be allowed to enter the building. In this instance, the card they swipe for entry will be blocked. Just another way WBE is helping to keep companies safe!
