Dahua Technology UK has raised nearly £14,000 for NHS Charities Together, which represents over 240 NHS charities across the UK.

The money was raised by an incentive scheme for Dahua’s distributor partners, where each thermal monitoring solution sold over a month triggered a donation by Dahua of £50 or £100, depending on the product.

“Working within and contributing to local society is one of our key values at Dahua Technology,” said Michael Lawrence, Dahua’s Marketing Director for the UK and Ireland. “Through the fantastic work and continued support of our partners, we are delighted to make this donation to NHS Charities Together. This worthy charity provides services above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, touching lives and making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.”

Dahua’s range of thermal monitoring solutions can be used to monitor the body temperatures of visitors and staff. Accurate to within +/-0.3oC, they are also capable of screening people at distances of up to 4.5 metres.

Facial recognition is fully integrated with body temperature monitoring. The Dahua NVR options provide extensive storage of facial images and temperature information, allowing for easy historical access. The cameras can also be integrated with third-party products, such as turnstiles and VMS.

Typically, a system will comprise a Dahua thermal hybrid network camera, a blackbody to provide an accurate and constant reference temperature, a full HD monitor and a 16-channel NVR.

If the wearing of masks is required, the system is designed to detect people who are not wearing them. It can also be integrated with Dahua’s people-counting software to help enable social distancing.
