Avigilon Elevated Temperature Detection Camera Tested

By Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Sep 17, 2020

Avigilon has entered the temperature screening market with the release of their H4 Thermal Elevated Temperature Detection Camera. But how does it compare to others which have been on the market for months or even years?

IPVM Image

We tested the ETD camera (640S-H4A-THD-BO50), examining:

  • How Avigilon's measurement approach compares to others
  • How easy or difficult it is to "beat/trick" the camera with elevated temperatures
  • How hats, masks, and glasses impact temperature measurement
  • How setup and configuration compare to others
