Data-Connected Cities Aren’t as Smart as They Could Be
While stationary modules with cameras and interactive information programs are becoming commonplace, cities are missing out on opportunities to improve urban life for their residents.
The smart city revolution has brought on an avalanche of new products to help cities and facilities stay connected with the populace while also providing services like hand sanitation and alerts. But some savvy companies are pushing the innovation even further.
Digital Signage X by Krakem LLC is a clever multifunctional, interactive signage product for smart cities. It’s weatherproof, dispenses hand sanitation, has informational menu capabilities and an alert system directly connected to local emergency services. It even comes with a refilling plan that includes disaster and vandalism insurance.
But Digital Signage X now has a new sibling in the family. Thermo comes with not one but two high-powered cameras for security and thermal scanning. What can this mean for your community or city? Plenty.
Facial recognition cameras provide a multitude of services. They keep a record of who stopped by for information or to sanitize their hands. This record can be used by authorities for victims of crimes and missing persons. It can also serve as a contact tracing partner.
But Thermo has a second thermal camera, capable of scanning body temperature within just a few seconds. This can help not only with contact tracing of virus outbreaks but provides a screening function for retail shops, sports facilities, and other public venues where people meet.
Digital Signage X – Thermo runs on a Linux system and comes wired for wifi, advertising , messaging, and authority alert capabilities. For safety, public health, information, and rapid response, it’s hard to find smart city signage as well-executed as the multifunctional Thermo.
While Digital Signage X designs the most advanced outdoor signage of our age, you can enjoy their safety and marketing capabilities with ease.
By investing in smart signage devices like Digital X, cities can capture advanced connectivity and begin using it today.
