SACRAMENTO — Rhombus Systems, a provider of Cloud-based video security and IoT sensor technology, announces the release of smart security cameras with integrated mask detection to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and enable safer reopening of businesses during the pandemic.

“COVID-19 has affected the economy and how organizations operate in today’s world,” says Garrett Larsson, CEO and co-founder of Rhombus Systems. “Face coverings are now a requirement for many businesses, and with Rhombus Mask Detection, we’ve made it easier for managers to be notified when people are not wearing masks throughout their organization with minimal manual work.”

Included at no additional cost, mask detection works with Rhombus’ entire line of security cameras, allowing organizations to efficiently scale their COVID-19 response efforts, according to the company.

Mask detection uses a combination of artificial intelligence, machine learning algorithms and edge-based processing to automatically detect if individuals within a scene are wearing a mask. If a mask is not detected, the system will issue a real-time video alert for immediate response to protect visitors and reduce potential safety violations.

Enforcing safety protocols at scale is a challenge that Rhombus says it is uniquely equipped to help solve. Fever detection cameras have proven to be ineffective due to technology inaccuracies and individuals who are asymptomatic to the virus, according to the company.

Rhombus mask detection provides an alternative solution by helping organizations maintain safer environments at scale through mask-wearing.

Rhombus says the addition of mask detection aligns with its greater mission to create safer, more connected spaces through intelligent building automation. With the Rhombus platform, organizations can integrate modern video security with a suite of business solutions to assist in safer reopening, including particulate matter and air quality monitoring with IP Video’s HALO Smart Sensor; controlled building access with Openpath or Kisi; and automated HVAC controls with additional integrations.
