The coronavirus outbreak has created significant demand for thermal imaging and IR-based temperature measurement solutions in the UAE. What measures have you taken to cater to increased demand for these products?
There has been a burgeoning demand for temperature measurement solutions of all types over the past few months. We have been providing thermal temperature measurement cameras for almost three years now, but recently, to cater to the various sectors looking for measures to gauge body temperature as fever is the main symptom of Covid-19, we have added a whole range of thermal and IR-based products to our portfolio. We now have seven different models available — from the very cost-effective IR thermometers to AI-based thermal cameras which can measure temperature of over 25 people at one time.

We also have a complete portfolio for fever detection, starting from dual lens and single lens thermal imaging cameras, which are very precise and can be used with a black box for accuracy of +/-0.2 degree Celsius, to cameras that can simultaneously detect temperatures of 25 people. Then we have the door frame temperature detector, which uses IR Probe, and is very easy to set up and use.
Our temperature and mask detection face access control devices are also very popular and cost effective.
