About the project
We developed a simple integration to visualize measurements of human body temperature by plugging a wall thermometer into a Raspberry Pi and connecting it to an AXIS camera via network.
The thermometer takes people’s temperature and the results are displayed on a screen as a simple infographic using CamOverlay App. The micro app can also send event data to a video management system or other systems via HTTP push or MQTT, so you can search quickly through recorded footage or send notifications to responsible personnel.
This integration is a cost and time-effective virus/ disease prevention measure in office buildings, shops, and other public spaces.
The core of this integration is CamScriper RPi and an RK Technology K3 Pro IR thermometer. The thermometer is plugged directly into a Raspberry Pi, CamScripter RPi forwards the data into an AXIS camera and the measurements are displayed via CamOverlay App graphics.
What do you need?
Learn more about CamScripter RPi in this product sheet where we explain how to set up a Raspberry Pi to work with our app and how to prepare CamScripter RPi to work with micro apps of your choice.
Open your internet browser and type in the IP address of your Raspberry Pi to open CamScripter App UI. The IP address must be in the following format: http://localhost:52520/settings.html
Click “Start” to launch the micro application.
To set the thermometer up, open CamScripter App UI in your browser, and access the K3 Pro Sensor via the gear button next to the installed thermometer package.
Here you can select temperature limit, choose between Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales, and specify widget position.
Our thermometer integration is a great solution for efficient health monitoring in shops, office buildings, and factories. It’s fast, convenient, and utilizes a thermometer model available all around the world.
