PITTSFORD, N.Y.—LenelS2 and FLIR Systems signed an agreement to integrate select FLIR thermal cameras with LenelS2’s OnGuard access control system. The integrated, non-contact solutions joins the Carrier Healthy Buildings Program suite of offerings to support reopening and assistance in slowing the spread of COVID-19 and possibly other viruses in the workplace through thermal screening. 

“As organizations implement site-specific screening protocols, integrating access control systems with thermal imaging solutions is an important part of a comprehensive approach,” Jeff Stanek, president, LenelS2, said in the announcement. “The collaboration with FLIR will help drive our end users’ access control decisions in support of healthy, safe workplaces.” 

LenelS2 will offer integrated thermal imaging screening and access control solutions to quickly identify individuals with elevated skin temperature and apply customizable access control parameters to allow or deny entry. FLIR EST line of non-contact thermal screening cameras will be leveraged, including A500-EST and A700-EST, by integrating with LenelS2.

“Having a set of processes, including temperature checks, is critical for organizations as they work to maintain their operations or begin to return employees safely back to work,” Rickard Lindvall, vice president and general manager, Solutions Business, FLIR, said. “The FLIR and LenelS2 brands complement each other perfectly to provide our customers best-of-breed solutions they can confidently deploy.” 

FLIR designed the A500-EST and A700-EST as non-contact screening tools that can serve as a first line of defense against potential health risks. These cameras are part of FLIR’s A-Series camera offering and are U.S. FDA 510(k) registered. Through onboard edge-computing with advanced measurement tools or when combined with customized elevated skin temperature screening software, these cameras provide rapid, frictionless screening stations that communicate with the On-Guard system to automatically process and apply customizable access control parameters.
