Boots, the health and beauty retailer and pharmacy chain with over 3000 stores worldwide, approached Unique Fire & Security with an urgent requirement to implement thermal imaging camera systems within their Optician Practices in Dorset.
Our specialist CCTV technicians worked fast and collaboratively with the Boots Opticians team, visiting four local practices across Dorset located in Wimborne, Weymouth, Wallisdown and New Milton and have since installed temperature screening cameras in order to detect raised body temperatures in the general public who may enter.
In its first week of activity, the cameras screened 3 people for abnormal temperature across New Milton and Wallisdown. They were advised to call 111 as they registered 38 degrees temperature, potentially screening out 3 people with the virus from visiting the practices.
Zabir Ali, Franchise Partner at Boots Opticians, contacted Unique Fire & Security at the beginning of June, knowing he had a responsibility to protect both his staff and customers. Zabir heard about Unique’s Temperature Screening Solutions and knew it was the perfect product to open his practices in the safest way.
Unique visited the different practices and were able to implement the solutions fast and effectively. With the Weymouth practice, we upgraded their whole system to a new IP system at the same time, which the team turned around within 24 hours.
