Thermal/Temperature Monitoring

Temperature Monitoring


The Dahua Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution offers the latest hybrid thermal network camera that combines a Vanadium Oxide (VOx) sensor with a 2 MP visible-light sensor. The solution also provides a blackbody calibration device that maintains a constant temperature as a reference point for the thermal camera. The thermal camera coupled with the blackbody calibration device and a feature-rich 4 TB Network Video Recorder delivers a contactless solution for continuous, contactless, and non-invasive temperature monitoring.

'The Dahua Thermal Temperature Monitoring Solution is not FDA-cleared or approved. The Solution should not be solely or primarily used to diagnose or exclude a diagnosis of COVID-19 or any other disease. Elevated skin 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 Solution in the particular environment of use, should determine the significance of any fever or elevated temperature based on the skin telethermographic temperature measurement. The Solution 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.

Required Devices

Recommended Accesories

  • VCT-999 Tripod (x2)
  • RQW026-00 Connector (x2)

A set of temperature equipment requires two tripods and two transfer parts, one for the camera and one for the Blackbody device

Required Firmware

The camera will require installing 2 different firmware files, one for the System and one for the Core.

The upgrade for the camera will require a single set of System and Core files. Download both System and Core files as a pair, do not interchange/mix the files between the sets listed below.

The System firmware should be installed first then the Core firmware

The firmware files below are specific for the Temperature Monitoring Solution. For general use please reference the firmware listed on Firmware By Device
