No. Unlike fever “guns” that require a dedicated person to operate each sensor, Kogniz uses advanced AI and computer vision so that the solution works autonomously and in large groups of people.
When a person is detected with an elevated temperature, a real-time alert, including a photo of the person’s face so they can easily be recognized and pulled aside, is sent to designated health or security personnel.
The Kogniz web portal and mobile apps display the live video, temperature information, and alerts in real time. All Kogniz Health Cams can be viewed and managed from anywhere via the Kogniz web portal and mobile apps.
Yes. The Kogniz Health Cam is required wherever temperature screening is desired, but existing surveillance cameras can be added to the Kogniz Health Response Platform for exposure detection, social distancing, and protective equipment enforcement throughout facilities.
Each Kogniz Cortex powers up to ten surveillance cameras, and multiple Kogniz Cortex devices mesh together automatically.
The Kogniz Health Cam is preconfigured to work directly out of the box. Once you have powered on the tablet and connected it to ethernet or WiFi, sign in to https://apps.kogniz.com on any web browser to begin using the system. You can view and manage an unlimited number of Kogniz Health Cams from your Kogniz web portal and mobile apps.
Kogniz Health Cam can be set up in minutes. Kogniz support is available to help at any time.
Yes, an unlimited number of Kogniz Health Cams can be set up across multiple locations. All can be centrally viewed and managed via the Kogniz web portal and mobile apps.
Temperature can be accurately measured up to 16 feet away from the camera
With a normal flow of foot traffic (50 people moving at 4 miles per hour), a single Kogniz Health Cam can support tens of thousands of readings per hour.
The thermal imager uses a 6.6mm long-wave infrared lens with a 55 degree horizontal field of view. At 16 feet distance from the camera, the visible horizontal field is 17 feet wide.
The temperature accuracy of the Kogniz Health Cam is +/- 0.5 degrees Celsius. Kogniz further increases the accuracy of elevated temperature alerts by creating a real-time histogram of temperature readings across all people who walk by the camera, and uses this “relative” temperature difference to find higher than normal temperatures.
Yes, you can use either wired ethernet or connect your Kogniz Health Cam to your wireless or even cellular network.
Yes, a POE adapter can be used for installations that require POE.
Kogniz Health Cam uses a state-of-the-art microbolometer for detecting temperature. A microbolometer is an array of tiny heat-detecting sensors that are sensitive to infrared radiation.
As infrared energy strikes an individual bolometer element, the element increases in temperature, and its electrical resistance changes. This resistance change is measured and then converted into temperature values.
The average normal body temperature is generally accepted as 98.6°F (37°C). Some studies have shown that normal body temperatures vary widely, from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). A temperature over 100.4°F (38°C) likely indicates a fever caused by an infection or illness.
No. There are huge differences in both the quality of the microbolometer sensor and its accuracy in detecting skin temperature. Most microbolometers are designed for oil and gas exploration. Only sensors that have been designed and calibrated for human skin temperature detection should ever be used.
