Dahua Buenos Aires Bus Screening Violates IEC Standards and Dahua's Own Instructions

By: Robert Wren Gordon, Published on Jun 30, 2020

Dahua has promoted Buenos Aires bus deployments as "solutions that facilitate community safety". However, they violate IEC standards and, ironically, Dahua's own installation instructions.

Background: Buenos Aires Buses

Dahua 'fever' / temperature screening devices have been installed on two bus lines in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (the official name of Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital), as well as on a third bus line in Buenos Aires Province (the region surrounding the capital).
