Back to Business

America is going through various phases and waves of emerging from lockdown, with many states reopening gradually. Businesses who are able to open must comply with federal and state protocols and take relevant measures to ensure public safety and health including:

  • Reducing transmission among employees
  • Maintaining healthy business operations
  • Maintaining a healthy work environment

General Best Practices for Reopening

There are some basic steps all businesses can consider for opening their businesses while protecting customers and staff.

  • Plexiglass at checkout/registration/reception area
  • Social distancing guidelines – utilize stickers on floor and signage to indicate 6ft distancing
  • Require masks for customers / employees
  • Make hand sanitizer available
  • Frequent breaks for hand washing for high contact/ jobs
  • More frequent deep cleaning
  • Temperature screenings

How Can Dahua Help? 

Dahua offers a range of solutions to help small, medium, and large businesses thrive during these uncertain times and the imminent future. Options include: thermal temperature monitoring solution, mask detection, handheld thermal device, SafetyTemp thermal temperature monitoring station and flow control for maintaining reduced capacity.

Technology: SafetyTemp Thermal Temperature Monitoring Station

Key Applications: Small to mid-size retailers at employee entrances and front desks

The SafetyTemp thermal temperature monitoring station is an easy-to-deploy solution that quickly measures skin temperature without the need for personal contact and provides an accurate temperature reading to help businesses and schools assess employees, customers, students and other visitors for elevated skin temperature.

The SafetyTemp system features a simple, portable setup that consists of a seven-inch screen and a camera with dual, 2MP, CMOS sensors. Different installation options, such as floor and desktop mounts, make SafetyTemp a versatile solution for shops, restaurants, schools, and factories that need an efficient method to assess temperatures of employees, customers, students and other visitors. This contact-free solution for monitoring temperatures uses thermal imaging technology to reduce the risk of viral transmission and deliver peace of mind.

Technology: Mask Detection Camera

Key Applications: Small to large retailers at entrance or through store; Use in conjunction with Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution or Flow Control for increased impact

Challenge: Enforcing the proper use of face masks has proven to be a challenging task, especially as some communities are slower to adopt this new social norm.


The camera uses AI technology to detect if a person entering an area is not wearing a mask. If a mask is not detected, a customizable audio message such as ‘please wear a face mask’ is triggered. Upload or record your own message or use a pre-recorded option.


  • Helps avoid employee confrontation with customers who do not want to wear a mask.
  • Saves time chasing customers who don’t have a mask.
  • Monitors multiple people at a time
  • Dahua’s free DMSS app enables instant alerts of violators not wearing a mask on your mobile device.
  • Equipped with an SD memory slot, images associated with incidents of people not wearing masks or not wearing them correctly can be stored locally as a cost effective way to mitigate risk for small businesses without a security system.

Technology: Flow Control System

Key Applications: Small to large retailers at entrance or through store; Use in conjunction with Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution or Mask Detection for increased impact

Flow control utilizes a people counting camera at each entrance to keep track of how many customers enter and exit a location.

When the number of customers has reached a set limit, a digital screen outside of the entrance will display a red light stop prompt to notify customers to remain in line outside.

When the amount of customers is below the designated limit, a green light will remain on the display to notify customer is it ok to enter the store, as well as displaying the number who can enter before the limit will be reached.

Technology: Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution

Key Applications: Large businesses for higher temperature efficiency; Most Precise Option

The Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution provides a faster, more efficient, non-contact alternative to manual temperature measurement.

  • Non-contact: Automatic temperature monitoring
  • Non-invasive: Operators do not have to be near people being screened, limiting exposure to security personnel.
  • Monitors people much faster than handheld solutions, and without fear of cross-contamination.

Deployment Locations:

  • Indoor environments with unstable ambient temperatures
  • Entrances and exits
  • Check points throughout large facilities
  • Busy, large applications

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).  Users, 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.
