Lombardy is one of the regions most affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. Due to the emergency, hospitals remain overcapacity, surgeries postponed, and staff continue to work fatigued because of what they’ve had to sustain over the past few months. In addition to this already critical situation, the Milanese capital suffers from a major blood scarcity. Decrease in blood donation collection In recent months, the Ministry of Health has intervened several times with recommendations to prevent possible interruption or decrease in blood donation collections within the region. This was targeted to improve processes at the donation centre in order to aide in the management of blood components and raise awareness of transfusion needs. Many donations made were due to the appeals launched by AVIS Milano. Due to the responses of citizens, even non-periodic donors, who went to the Lambrate headquarters in recent weeks was of generous help. Donors' security The donation candidate with a potentially higher temperature is then escorted to another location To ensure donors’ security and to avoid crowding in the waiting rooms, regulating access and managing the flow became extremely important. AVIS Milano has immediately taken necessary measures. Thanks to MOBOTIX’s donation and the completely free installation by Bergamo-based company, Ideologica, the association is now able to provide a high level of protection before a potential donor is accepted. A MOBOTIX Thermal TR imaging camera has been installed in the room where donors are processed and wait for access to donor acceptance protocols. Radiometric thermal sensor The camera, which is equipped with a radiometric thermal sensor, is able to detect variations in temperature of those present in the access room. It was integrated into AVIS Milano’s existing system by Ideologica in just one afternoon, and was programmed to detect any temperature rise above 37.5 degrees Celsius (as required by law to allow the donation), with an accuracy level of 0.3 degree. We were able to identify the person potentially at risk of COVID-19 through the temperature symptom" If a donation candidate displays any change from this value, an immediate auditory alarm is triggered. The donation candidate with a potentially higher temperature is then escorted to another location and informed of the reasons for their donation refusal and is encouraged to visit his or her attending physician for further investigation. Medical staff immediately receives a report In respect of privacy, the system has not been set up to be viewed remotely with a video image on any external PC. The medical staff immediately receives a report that a person with a temperature above 37.5 degrees centigrade has appeared in the entrance hall. "Thanks to the contribution of MOBOTIX technology, we were able to identify the person potentially at risk of COVID-19 through the temperature symptom from the moment of entry, avoid contact with other donors present and advise the individual on an immediate follow-up with their doctor," commented Sergio Casartelli, General Manager of AVIS Milan. Facilitate solutions with MOBOTIX Technology "Technology should always be seen as positive improvement in any application regardless of how it is used, either to facilitate or to provide a final solution. We as MOBOTIX are committed to promoting and providing through our solutions and our partners as many benefits and opportunities as possible.” “We are extremely proud and humbled that we could collaborate with AVIS and that our technology could support the work AVIS has done to ensure availability of blood in Milan.” “This is one of the most important actions any organisation could have taken to provide support at this critical time," concluded Phillip Antoniou, Vice President Sales Europe South / West & MEAPAC.
MOBOTIX has been awarded ‘Secure by Default’ certification in the UK. The certification for the new MOBOTIX 7 platform includes the new IP video system M73, launched at the MOBOTIX Global Partner Conference in October 2019, as well as the Mx6 product line. This highlights MOBOTIX’ ongoing focus on cyber security and privacy protection. MOBOTIX has been approved based on the 12 Guiding Principles of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner. The company is now globally enabled to use the official ‘Secure by Default’ logo. Cyber-secure surveillance camera products Many congratulations to MOBOTIX AG in self-certifying their products as ‘secure by default’" Self-certification allows manufacturers of surveillance camera devices and components to clearly demonstrate that their products meet requirements that ensure they are secure by default. The requirements are an important step forward in providing the best possible assurance for stakeholders that products aren’t vulnerable to cyberattacks. “Many congratulations to MOBOTIX AG in self-certifying their products as ‘secure by default’” highlights Tony Porter, Surveillance Camera Commissioner. “The certification mark demonstrates to customers and stakeholders alike that the products listed on my website meet the new minimum requirements I expect in terms of cyber-secure surveillance camera products. It’s great that we have a number of proactive manufacturers like MOBOTIX AG leading the way toward a common goal to develop products that to mitigate potential cyber-threats.” Surveillance camera systems Several high profile and well publicised compromises of systems were left in an unacceptable security configuration. Some of these compromises also showed the root cause of cyberattacks was down to poor design and manufacturing. Driven by the need to ensure the UK’s resilience against this and other forms of cyber security vulnerability Driven by the need to ensure the UK’s resilience against this and other forms of cyber security vulnerability, as well as to provide the best possible assurance to stakeholders, the requirements are an important step forward for manufacturers, installers and users alike. Secure by Default highlights the conformity to the 12 Guiding Principles as part of the surveillance camera Code of Practice as well as the development and use of surveillance camera systems, of which MOBOTIX applies conform. Developing solutions and strategy Phillip Antoniou, Vice President Sales Europe South/West & MEAPAC of MOBOTIX underlines “We’re very proud to achieve the ‘Secure by Default’ certification, this demonstrates the commitment that we as MOBOTIX have towards Cyber Security. We recognise the existing and increasing concerns and as such will be further developing our solutions and strategy to address this.” Recently, MOBOTIX has launched a free of charge Cactus Patch with latest firmware updates. With this continuous support, a stable and secure video system is sustained.
