Hikvision, an IoT solution provider with video as its core competency, announces a new temperature screening integration with Milestone XProtect® versions 2020R1.

Hikvision thermal cameras

The plugin-based integration enables the XProtect Smart Client to display skin-surface temperatures in the live feed and during playback, and to receive elevated temperature alarms in the Smart Client Alarm Tab. With the new desktop notification feature in the 2020R1 release, operators get instant notification of and can respond to any elevated temperatures detected.

Support the detection of elevated skin temperatures so as to achieve rapid preliminary screening in public areas"

The new series of Hikvision AI-powered thermal cameras designed for temperature detection - including the DS-2TD2617B, DS-2TD1217B, DS-2TD2636B, and DS-2TD2637B models - are fully supported in Milestone’s XProtect via the Hikvision generic driver released in the latest Milestone device Driver Pack.

We are excited that we are able to merge together the latest AI-powered camera technology from Hikvision with the powerful, and multi-functional VMS software from Milestone. This enables both existing and new installations to effectively support the detection of elevated skin temperatures so as to achieve rapid preliminary screening in public areas with high efficiency in a multitude of scenarios,” says Jens Berthelsen, Global Partner Alliance Manager at Hikvision.

Temperature measurement and trigger alarms

With this integration, operators can:

  • Display accurate temperature measurement within ±0.5°C in the Smart Client (±0.3°C using black body calibration).
  • Trigger alarms based on user-defined temperature thresholds.
  • Show alarms in the Smart Client Alarm View (further attentive viewing options are available via the Smart Client & XProtect Matrix configurations).

The plugin and configuration guides are available for download on the Hikvision Technology Partner Portal. The integration is free to download and install.
