New Brochure Covers Hikvision’s Facility Self-Screening Solution for Streamlined Access Control, Visitor Reporting, Mask Detection and Touch-Free Health Status Reporting

October 14, 2020

Hikvision HikWire blog article New Facility Self-Screening Solution Brochure

Our new online brochure, “Facility Self-Screening with Questionnaire,” details Hikvision’s all-in-one solution that provides touchless temperature screening, mask detection and a customizable health questionnaire. Designed to protect employees and visitors, the solution provides a streamlined process for access control, visitor reporting, and health status tracking.

A top priority for organizations across industries is to protect their employees, visitors and customers while delivering a great customer experience. Hikvision’s Facility Self-Screening Solution helps to reduce risk and protect people by offering a complete system that provides:

  • Accurate skin-surface temperature screening
  • Mask detection with alerts
  • Alarm prompts when abnormal temperature or no mask is detected
  • Automated, touch-free sign-in experience

How Does It Work?
The solution uses our Temperature Screening Terminal with Mask Detection (DS-K1T671TM-3XF) to provide access control, instant temperature screening and mask detection alerts at the front door. Paired with our Video Intercom Monitoring Tablet (DS-KC001) to provide a 7-inch touch screen interface, it can remotely grant/refuse visitor access according to the status shown on the indoor station.

The process entails:

  • A QR code pops up on the screening terminal if the temperature reading is within normal range
  • The QR code will redirect the user to the Health Questionnaire page after the QR code is scanned with a smartphone
  • With normal temperature reading and approved health questionnaire, a visitor badge can be printed so the person can enter

Disclaimer: Hikvision’s Thermographic Cameras are designed for immediate detection and preliminary screening of elevated skin-surface temperature in high-traffic areas. When measuring core body temperature, please verify through the use of clinical measurement devices and/or by consulting a medical professional. Hikvision’s Thermographic Cameras must be used in accordance with local laws and regulations.

IMPORTANT! This model requires non-standard firmware. Do Not Install standard firmware (e.g. v.4.1.xx) on this model. Doing so will permanently damage your system. You must use custom firmware v.4.1.25 from the iDS-9632NXI-I8/16S product page.

The I-series NVR (such as the DS-7716NI-I4) is one of Hikvision's most popular and feature-rich recorders. As such, many firmware revisions have been introduced over the years to continually ensure the product is compatible with the newest technology available. Due to the many revisions, we recommend that the user closely follows the instructions below in order to reduce the amount of time spent as well as the chance of failure.

 

Database Optimization and Repair

As more affordable IP cameras are introduced over time with greater video resolution and data sizes, more efficient database management also becomes necessary. The introduction of firmware v4.0 brought about a new database architecture in order to be futureproof.

 

After upgrading to v4.X, the recorder database will need to be converted and optimized. If you are experiencing issues where playback is expected but not found, make sure "Database Repair" is performed as indicated in the procedures and scenarios below.

 

Preparing the Upgrade

Before proceeding with upgrade, it is recommended that NVR configuration file is exported from the NVR over the network or on to a local USB drive.

 

Upgrading from v3.4.92 build 170518 or Older

  1. All recorders must reach v3.4.92 before proceeding further. Upgrading from versions before v3.4.92 directly to any version of v4.X will likely cause the recorder to fail.
  2. If the recorder is already at v3.4.92, a full factory default is highly recommended before upgrading to any version of v4.X. There is a high chance of unit failure (requiring RMA) if the unit is not defaulted before upgrade.
  3. After reaching v3.4.92 and performing a full factory default, an upgrade directly to v4.50.00 is acceptable.
  4. After the upgrade is completed and the recorder is reprogrammed, it may be beneficial to perform a Database Repair. For details, refer to the section "Database Optimization and Repair" above.
  5. To verify repair progress, you may refer to the HDD status, or search the recorder log for repair started and stopped entries. Note that while the HDD is repairing, new recordings are still being made, but some existing recordings may not be searchable until repair is complete.
  6. If you continue to observe playback issues after database repair, ensure there are no power, network, or motion detection issues. Should the problem persist, contact technical support.

 

Upgrading from Any v4.X Build to v4.50.00.

  1. Any v4.X build can be upgraded directly to v4.50.00.
  2. Export configuration is highly recommended before performing the upgrade.
  3. If upgrading from any v4.X version that was not v4.22.005, a Database Repair is recommended. Refer to Step 4 and onwards in the previous section.

 

Downgrading

Downgrading is not recommended. Due to new features and parameters constantly being added, downgrading may cause the NVR to factory default itself or require a manual default to operate properly.
