Thermal Screening and Temperature Detecting Technology

Our fever screening technology can detect elevated body temperatures, which could indicate the presence of a fever, before altering your team so you can act accordingly.  Our thermal imaging cameras work well in a wide variety of environments including schools, hospitals, offices, warehouses, factories, shops, and retail outlets. 

Here at Chris Lewis we have an enormous amount of experience in dealing with fever screening systems and can ensure you get the solution that is right for you! 

How fever screening works


Any object with temperatures above absolute zero emits a detectable amount of radiation. A thermal camera converts this radiation into clearly visible colours so you can detect elevated temperatures. 


Thermal cameras with high-temperature accuracy can help detect elevated body temperatures which may indicate the presence of a fever. 


It only takes one second to detect elevated skin temperatures and large numbers of people can be screened at any one time, making mass screening simple and effective. It is also a non-contact temperature measure and so, unlike contact thermometers, avoids unnecessary contact.

The benefits of fever screening

Social Distancing

Screen public and staff entering your premises for a fever whilst maintaining social distancing rules


Combine with access control to automatically grant or deny access based on temperature


People will feel safer entering your premises if they know that everyone is being screened for a fever


Detect possible carriers of a virus and prevent the spread of deadly infection.

Our Range of Thermal Solutions

We offer a range of unique thermal screening solutions to help detect the presence of a fever, which is one of the most documented symptoms of Coronavirus/COVID-19. Using our thermal imaging technology and infrared cameras, you can safely identify if an individual is showing signs of fever upon entry into your premises whilst still maintaining social distancing rules. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), the system produces images and temperature readings to effectively respond to high body temperatures before sending an immediate alert directly to the relevant member of staff to help you act early.

Handeld 1
Economical 2
Professional 3
Access Control Hub 4

Available in 2 varieties, Eco and Pro, our handheld solution is light and mobile. It’s efficiency stands out with the ability to screen up to 60 people per minute whilst avoiding any unnecessary contact. The solution can integrate with PCs and mobiles and save screenshots of potentially risky people as evidence.

The Economical Temperature Screening Solution is both thermal and optical and can screen up to 30 people at any one time. Temperature readings are accurate to +/- 0.5 degrees (or +/-0.3 with the collaborator), and the solution can seamlessly integrate with your existing video management system (VMS).

The advanced artificial intelligence (AI) reduces false readings associated with someone holding items such as a cup of hot water, and facial recognition technology takes readings from the forehead for more accurate results. It even has the ability to determine if an individual is wearing a facemask.

The Professional Thermal Screening Solution is an advancement on the economic solution, offering all the same features but with a higher camera resolution and the ability to take accurate temperature readings from up to 9m away, providing higher levels of detail and wider coverage for readings.

Whether you operate or manage an office building, warehouse, or block of flats, our access control terminals can deny or grant access to premises based on select configurations and criteria. These include facial recognition, temperature control, card access, and even if someone is wearing a face mask or not.

This will allow you to ensure that anyone who has a temperature, which may indicate a fever, does not enter and therefore cannot contaminate the environment.

Why choose our solution

Chris Lewis Fire & Security is a HikVision Platinum Partner. We work directly with HikVision to offer a rich thermal screening product portfolio, which our experienced engineers install and integrate into your organisation.

AI Human Body Detection

Hikvision Bullet/Turret Fever Screening Thermographic Cameras feature AI human body detection to fix the measurement areas to human bodies, thus reducing false alarms caused by other heat sources.

Unique Self Developed Algorithm

Benefitting from Hikvision’s self-developed temperature measurement algorithm, and big data obtained by lots of cases, the accuracy of temperature measurement is highly reliable.

Embedded Audio Alarms

With a built-in audio module, Hikvision Bullet/Turret Fever Screening Thermographic Cameras can trigger alarms to notify operators immediately when a person with a fever passes by. 

One Stop Solution

As a world leading security solution provider, Hikvision offers a rich product portfolio including thermographic cameras, NVR, switches, and more, which makes it easier for you to set up a complete and professional solution. 

Fever Screening Uses

Fever screening solutions are like extreme infrared thermometers and are advantageous for any space with a high footfall. Being able to safely monitor the temperature of customers in retail outlets, teachers and pupils in schools, visitors to hospitals and workers in office spaces could reduce the spread of illness and protect others from infection.
