Dangerous Hikvision Fever Camera Showcased by Chilean City

By: Robert Wren Gordon, Published on Aug 07, 2020

Deploying a fever camera outdoors, in the rain, with no black body, is clearly dangerous. Nonetheless, one Chilean city is celebrating its donated Hikvision system by driving it around town to find those who have coronavirus.

IPVM Image

Despite this, Hikvision has been silent, as the city risks greater infections by depending on a fundamentally flawed approach.

This is the fourth in a series of posts about faulty fever camera deployments in Latin America.
