Introducing: IR Sentinel

We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’re introducing a brand new product to our extensive lineup, which will help businesses and organisations meet the demands and challenges that Coronavirus presents.

Meet the IR Sentinel.

There’s no denying that Covid-19 has changed almost everything about the way we live and work. As the world moves forward through the pandemic, businesses and organisations will need all the tools at their disposal to be able to keep their workplaces Covid-secure, and their people safe.

Powered by Cirrus Solutions, the newest member of the Cirrus Research family, the IR Sentinel is a non-contact fever detection and facial recognition system that uses a German-made temperature sensor and a wide-angle camera to detect human temperature quickly and safely. The IR Sentinel can be deployed in any indoor environment to allow for the quick and safe detection of people’s temperature and can be incorporated into automated entry systems, granting or denying access to people, depending on their temperature and/or identity.

  • Is simple to install
