Looking at the current scientific evidence, COVID-19 is a virus that's most commonly transmitted from person-to-person via airborne respiratory droplets or via physical contact with a contaminated surface. The virus can be transmitted from an infected person anytime they cough, sneeze, sing or speak. This is why precautions, like face coverings, are becoming the norm across the UK.
To help protect people around you, there are steps you can take. Here are a few common ones that (we're sure) you're already adhering to:
- Avoiding contact by staying at least 1 metre away from people
- Washing hands regularly
- Coughing/sneezing into the crook of your elbow
- Wearing a face mask in areas where social distancing is not possible

Of course, these Government's guidelines are tailored to the behaviour of individuals and work effectively, if they're adhered to. But how can you keep track of the hundreds of people coming in and out of your office/store?
If you're looking for a simple way to monitor the people entering and exiting your business to help prevent COVID-19 transmission, we might have the perfect solution for you.
One system you can use to help stop COVID-19 from being transmitted is to install a people counting (or density control) camera. We offer state-of-the-art people counting cameras that can be installed at the entrances and exits around your business.
What these cameras will do, give you a reliable idea of the number of people inside the building at any given time. We connect each camera to a user-friendly screen so all of your employees can check the data whenever necessary. If you choose to set it up, you can also create a real-time alert/announcement that will be triggered anytime the number of people inside the building goes over a particular threshold.
This means you can continue to control the transmission of COVID-19, without needing to hire a person to stand at the door and physically count, monitor and deter customers.
We can install our people counting cameras across South Wales. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you think this system could benefit your business.

One of the most prominent symptoms of COVID-19 is an elevated temperature. This is where your skin feels hot to the touch, particularly on your chest or back. Of course, it's possible that people are walking around with a high temperature, but haven't recognised it yet. Without a thermometer, it can be hard to tell whether someone's temperature is abnormal or not!
As a business owner, you might find the prospect of checking your employee's temperatures each day a costly, time-wasting task - but how else can you be sure that people won't be transmitting COVID-19 on the premises?
We can install a thermal imaging camera on your premises to help you monitor the temperature of staff members or customers entering the building. The temperatures of the individuals in view are compared to the ambient temperature of the air, meaning people with a noticeably high temperature can be identified quickly.
One of the benefits of choosing a thermal imaging camera over a hand-held thermometer is that you can check the temperature of multiple people at once. Better still, the temperature readings are accurate to within 0.5°c - so you can put your confidence in these cameras going forwards.
So, if you want to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on your business premises, we can help. Get in touch with the IDS Security team now for a free quote.
