DW® Delivers Accurate Prescreening Solution

The new Elevated Skin Temperature (E.S.T.) System scans people for elevated skin temperatures and filters them for additional screening.

Digital Watchdog® (DW®), the industry leader in digital recorders, surveillance cameras and related management software, announces the launch of our new E.S.T. System (Elevated Skin Temperature). DW’S E.S.T System (DW-ESTS) provides a quick, contactless solution for initial screening of people on the go. Every industry and institution may benefit from implementing a skin temperature screening system.

Following the U.S. FDA’s COVID-19 Enforcement Policy criteria released in April 2020, the DW E.S.T. is an NDAA/TSA and FDA compliant security-grade thermal camera that provides a low-impact, contact-less alternative to traditional screening methods. At a distance of 6.5 ~16.4ft, with (±0.36°F (±0.2°C) accuracy tolerance, the E.S.T. scanning solution provides a high degree of flexibility to meet the individual requirements of a wide variety of installations. Instead of manually taking the temperature of every person entering a building, E.S.T. identifies people with elevated skin temperature so you can easily separate them for additional screening.

The system includes an E.S.T. Blackbody temperature sensor, a skin temperature scanner camera, and a 2.1MP/1080p HD visible camera, making it easy for users to quickly detect and identify any person that may require additional screening.
