No Blackbody Mistake, Half Million Dollar, Hikvision Fever Camera System in Georgia

By: Charles Rollet, Published on Sep 16, 2020

A Georgia school district touted buying Hikvision fever screening "about $2,000 cheaper per camera" with no blackbody for a total cost of a half a million dollars, despite the fact that these calibration devices are crucial for accuracy.

Moreover, the School district made a mistake confusing the accuracy of the Hikvision system with a blackbody to the worse performance of the ones they bought without a blackbody.

This news follows an Alabama school district spending over $1 million on a similar no blackbody Hikvision fever camera system and even declared it would not follow FDA guidance. Such deals harm public health efforts and waste taxpayer money while helping the bottom line of Hikvision and its dealers.
