French and Scottish nursing homes adopt flawed fever scanning cameras


The lives of residents in French and Scottish nursing homes have been put in danger by the homes’ use of Dahua and Hikvision fever scanning cameras. The homes are violating ISO standards for such cameras: they have been incorrectly installed in front of large windowed doors, the staff are not given sufficient time to acclimate after coming in from outdoors, and the cameras deliver incorrect readings when the forehead is obscured by hair or a hat.
