Dahua raises £14,000 for NHS Charities

As part of an incentive scheme for its distributor partners, Dahua Technology UK has raised nearly £14,000 for the organisation which represents over 240 NHS charities across the UK, NHS Charities Together.

The incentive scheme involved Dahua making a donation of £50 or £100 (product dependent) from each thermal monitoring solution sold over a month. The amount raised demonstrates the increasing uptake of thermal solutions by organisations, likely as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, as businesses look to utilise the technology to measure elevated body temperatures of occupants when entering buildings.

“Working within and contributing to local society is one of our key values at Dahua Technology,” said Michael Lawrence, Dahua’s Marketing Director for the UK and Ireland. “Through the fantastic work and continued support of our partners, we are delighted to make this donation to NHS Charities Together. This worthy charity provides services above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, touching lives and making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.”

Dahua-ThermalImagingCharity-20Dahua highlights how its range of thermal monitoring solutions can be used to monitor the body temperatures of visitors and staff. Accurate to within +/-0.3oC, they are also capable of screening people at distances of up to 4.5 metres.

Dahua’s cameras can also utilise facial recognition, people-counting software, mask detection and integrate with third-party products such as turnstiles and VMS.

Typically, a system will comprise a Dahua thermal hybrid network camera, a blackbody to provide an accurate and constant reference temperature, a full HD monitor and a 16-channel NVR.
