FREMONT, CA: The global leader in creating smart buildings, Johnson Controls, announced the launch of the company's smart elevated skin temperature scanning solution, the Tyco Illustra Pro Thermal EST. Johnson Controls is dedicated to helping buildings reopen as part of the new normal. A healthy and safe environment is a fundamental need today. It includes not just a building's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning infrastructure but also temperature screening among protocols, including contact tracing, frictionless entry and exits, and social distancing. The company's new tool is aimed to act as the first line of defense for building owners and operators to meet the new unprecedented demands due to the pandemic.

"How we interact with our environments, buildings and shared spaces has become top-of-mind as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With a 135-year history of creating smarter, safer, more sustainable buildings, Johnson Controls has unmatched expertise, technology and the solutions to rethink our physical spaces at this critical time," said Mike Ellis, executive vice president, chief customer & digital officer, Johnson Controls. "This camera provides added measures in a rapid and contactless fashion. Johnson Controls is very proud to be providing a solution that not only meets, but exceeds IEC standards."

Johnson Controls Smart Elevated Skin Temperature Scanning Solution uses a Tyco Illustra Pro Thermal EST camera. The camera provides rapid scanning at accuracy levels that exceed standards set by the International Electrotechnical Commission. The solution has also been designed to meet the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's April 2020 Enforcement Policy for Telethermographic Systems.

Skin temperature scanning can take place even when people are walking. The company's solution has an embedded advanced facial detection technology and rapid scanning times to alert operators on elevated skin temperature in real-time. This eliminates the need for people to stop for scans or be approached physically by operators. The technology can help reduce crowding and can contribute to a contactless building entry experience. It can be applied at business locations, schools, sporting and transportation venues, and various other locations.
