CCTV Surveillance Cameras with Built-in Temperature Sensors to Tackle the COVID-19 Across UK Office Buildings

Comments Off on CCTV Surveillance Cameras with Built-in Temperature Sensors to Tackle the COVID-19 Across UK Office Buildings

CCTV Surveillance Cameras with built-in temperature sensors might be deployed across large office buildings in an attempt to prevent the spread of the dreaded COVID-19 Coronavirus, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

These smart “Coronavirus” CCTV cameras would potentially relay data back to the building’s security personnel to help isolate those with higher than normal temperature – a key sign of Coronavirus.

“Building managers are facing a nightmare with Coronavirus”, says Jonathan Ratcliffe from, “One person could potentially infect hundreds meaning the building would have to close for weeks.”

“Automating the detection process to keep those with signs of the virus is the best form of defence to protect against large offices being shut down completely. We will definitely see this technology used in large banks and financial institutions in the City” he added.


One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

The CCTV Surveillance monitoring centre is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition.

We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test that replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test. If you want to reduce security costs today, please contact us on or ring 01480 223955.
