Smart auto-calibration with Blackbody sensor

The DW E.S.T. software automatically finds where the Blackbody is in the camera’s Field of View (FoV), self-calibrating in real-time based on the Blackbody’s set temperature. If the Blackbody moves, the software finds it automatically in the camera’s FoV.

A flexible, single product, integrated solution

The DW E.S.T. System complements any analog or IP video surveillance application. It is ideal for controlled entrances where skin temperature screening is needed.

High accuracy

The system provides a high accuracy thermal reading (+/-0.4°F, +/-0.2°C) thanks to its auto-detect blackbody technology.


Automatically trigger visual and audible alarms when a person’s temperature registers beyond a set threshold. These alarms can be quick alerts to let operators know additional screening is required.

Various distances, same quality readings

With a ±0.36°F/0.2°C accuracy variance (set to a single person reading mode at an effective distance of 10 to 16.4 feet from people and 10 to 14.7 feet from the Blackbody), the DW E.S.T. system provides an ideal standalone solution to meet the requirements of any application.

Software side data processing

The DW E.S.T. System transmits the original raw thermal data from 110,592 pixels to the dedicated E.S.T monitoring software. There, the PC performs the calculations on the data separately, delivering higher accuracy and quicker results.

Easy to setup

The DW E.S.T. System can be setup in minutes, visible or concealed from view. It can also be integrated into an existing access control solution using the alarm outputs at the back of the camera.

Larger sensor, 4x more data delivers greater accuracy

DW’s E.S.T system uses a 384x288 sensor, providing 4x more data processing power and higher accuracy than conventional IP thermal cameras.
