KUWAIT: Zain, the leading digital service provider in Kuwait, announced offering thermal camera solutions to corporate customers. The solutions allow government organizations and private businesses operating during the current COVID-19 pandemic to measure body temperatures from a safe distance using advanced tech solutions over Zain’s superfast network.

Zain offers these solutions as part of its national commitment towards the nation during this crisis, through which the company reflects its role as a leading Kuwaiti private sector organization by making its tech capabilities available. The company is keen on offering the most advanced services and solutions as per the highest international standards to serve the needs of government entities and private businesses that work tirelessly during the current situation.

Zain Kuwait’s Chief Enterprise Business Officer Hamad Al-Marzouq said: “today we reinforce our Zain Business services and solutions, which we specially designed for corporate customers, with a number of bundles featuring thermal camera solutions. This is an essential addition to our services portfolio amid the health situation in our nation and the entire world. With the gradual return to normal life everywhere, it has become crucial to check body temperatures to guarantee the health and safety of everyone, especially those who work directly in the work field”.

Marzouq added: “Zain’s thermal camera solutions witnessed great success with many corporate clients who were operating during the past exceptional period, most notably the Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC), Boursa Kuwait, and Al Hamra Business Tower. These organizations and many others commended the high efficiency of Zain’s thermal camera solutions in guaranteeing the health and safety of their employees, customers, and families. This is something we take great pride in”.

Marzouq explained that Zain now offers a wide range of multi-use thermal cameras from Hikvision, a leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance equipment. The cameras are bundled with Zain’s superfast Internet via a variety of flexible plans to guarantee the best operational efficiency. The plans feature fixed and handheld thermal cameras to suit customers’ different needs, and all cameras are able to measure body temperatures from a safe distance of one meter without the need for physical contact, which achieves social distancing goals and commitment in official instructions as much as possible.

The thermal cameras Zain offers feature many unique tech solutions, such as measuring body temperatures in less than a second, allowing the measurement of a large group of people of up to 30 individuals at once. The cameras are also able to identify individual faces using artificial intelligence (AI), and compare previously recorded body temperatures even if the person is wearing a face mask. The cameras will notify the user immediately via visual and audio alarms in case an unusual body temperature was detected. Moreover, the thermal cameras can also be used as CCTV surveillance cameras that record footage 24/7 as well as measure temperatures at the same time.

As part of its continuous efforts during the current crisis, Zain recently collaborated with the Kuwait Integrated Petroleum Industries Company (KIPIC), a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC), to supply the quarantine center project at Al Zour area – that is executed by KIPIC – with a telecommunications and networking digital infrastructure. The collaboration came to support the country’s tremendous efforts in these exceptional circumstances to fight the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Kuwait.

Zain offered a wide range of advanced solutions and services as per the highest international standards to build an integrated digital infrastructure for telecommunications and networking at the Al Zour Quarantine Center project, which is fully executed by KIPIC. This came with the aim of allowing the quarantine’s residents to benefit from wired and wireless telephone services, as well as high speed Internet services to communicate with their families while they reside at the center. In addition, the services will be used by the Ministry of Health’s medical and administrative staff while they operate at the center to serve their personal and professional needs.

Zain strongly believes in the crucial role played by private sector organizations in supporting social and economic sustainability projects, especially during crises. Springing from its growing commitment towards practicing its social responsibility, the company is committed to printing a positive print through all its activities. This has led Zain to embrace the most crucial issues in the community, including the support of the country’s entities by making its tech capabilities available.
