ROWLEY, Mass. (PRWEB) April 09, 2020
Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), the world’s leading gunshot detection solutions provider, is proud to announce its strategic partnership alliance with X.Labs, a California company focused on creating innovative visitor screening technologies that enhance public health, safety and security. SDS will be the premier distributor of X.Labs’ latest innovation called Feevr, an artificial intelligence (AI) based, non-contact thermal imaging technology that detects individuals in a crowd with an elevated temperature, a practice that is rapidly being adopted by businesses and public venues as they build their safety and security plans for re-opening facilities to the public when it is safe to do so.
“SDS is known as experts in gunshot detection technology, but at our core we are problem solvers in the business continuity space,” said Christian Connors, CEO of SDS. “We decided to expand our offerings and partner with X.Labs to bring our current and future customers a reliable, affordable and efficient product in order to help them keep their operations running smoothly as they screen for elevated temperatures.”
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, employers and public safety organizations are implementing temperature screening polices as they prepare for the re-opening of workplace and public buildings that have been ordered to close in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Forehead thermometers have been traditionally used for this practice, however the close contact required to administer this method puts screeners at risk and perpetuates the possibility of cross-contamination due to close contact. Feevr is a handheld or tripod-mounted AI based system for quickly screening and detecting individuals with an elevated temperature. Utilizing a thermal imaging camera and the AI based mobile app, Feevr’s solution automatically alerts when a scanned person’s temperature exceeds a predetermined threshold, allowing for immediate intervention.
“We are excited about this partnership and see the value in SDS as not only a distribution partner, but because of their excellent reputation in the security industry,” said Barry Oberholzer, Founder of X.Labs. “Customers in all verticals are looking for an uncomplicated and cost-effective fever screening solution and we have a product that is being delivered today that SDS can help us bring to businesses, schools and public venues as they adjust to the ‘new normal’, which is adding health screening to their safety and security planning for the long term.”
“We value the Feevr product because we don’t want customers have to resort to using expensive, invasive or risky techniques to keep people safe,” says Connors. “X.Labs shares SDS’ passion for product excellence and we look forward to expanding our relationship with Barry and his team.”
