A Wise Choice: Dahua’s New WizSeries

By | October 28, 2020

Exciting news! We are rebranding our product lines to help our customers more easily identify which video surveillance solutions are better suited for small installations and which are better for advanced, enterprise applications. Our two new categories are WizSense (pronounced “Wise Sense”) and WizMind (pronounced “Wise Mind”). Each category is made up of existing products as well as new ones; all fall under the Analytics+ umbrella and feature powerful AI chips and Dahua-developed deep learning algorithms for enhanced performance.

Here’s a quick overview of the differences between WizSense and WizMind. In future blog posts, we’ll dive deeper into the unique benefits of each one.

Dahua’s thermal solutions, including the SafetyTemp Thermal Temperature Station, the Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution, and the Handheld Thermal Temperature Monitoring Device, are not FDA-cleared or approved.  These solutions should not be solely or primarily used to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19 or any other disease.  Elevated body temperature in the context of use should be confirmed with secondary evaluation methods (e.g., an NCIT or clinical grade contact thermometer).  Public health officials, through their experience with the solutions in the particular environment of use, should determine the significance of any fever or elevated temperature based on the skin telethermographic temperature measurement.  The solutions should be used to measure only one subject’s temperature at a time.  Visible thermal patterns are only intended for locating the points from which to extract the thermal measurement.
