Thermo Cameras For Development Bank
Basseterre, St. Kitts, January 13, 2021 (ZIZ News): The Development Bank of St. Kitts and Nevis has stepped up its Covid-19 fight using the latest technology.
Thermal imagining cameras have been installed at the Bank’s head office at the corner of Church and Central Streets in Basseterre, and at the branch office on Chapel Street in Charlestown. The cameras allow for clients’ temperature to be taken without any contact as they are mounted on the wall, eight feet above the ground.
Security guards and frontline staff members at both offices have been trained on how to use a tablet to retrieve the information from the cameras if need be. According to Michael Peets of Digital Security Services Ltd. that information is important when it comes to contact tracing should any client show signs of the disease and can also be shared with the Ministry of Health.
Human Resource Manager at the Development Bank of St. Kitts and Nevis, Danienne Brin, has said that guidelines on how the thermal cameras will be used have been circulated and all clients are fully aware that when they enter the establishment they will have their temperatures taken using the new cameras.
Both Ms Brin and the Manager at the Nevis Branch Office, Ms Hyacinth Pemberton, note that the they are pleased with the way the cameras have been operating stating that the only time red flags would have been raised would have been due to a client’s elevated temperature as a result of being out in the hot sun for a lengthy period, as a second reading would be normal.
