Three Network Topology Options

1. Standalone: All data stays in the local station but no external alerting. The station is not plugged in and is not connected to your network.  You may run in kiosk mode but alerts will not leave the station.

2. Cloud version: where all alerts go to the cloud. The station is connected to an internet connection with outbound access.  You may run cloud version in kiosk mode where you don't need to have a person stationed at the Temperature Detection terminal and all alerts can be centralised in the cloud.

3. On-Prem server where all alerts stay on your network. The system connected to your network, and you control where it goes. You may run On-Prem version in kiosk mode where you don't need to have a person stationed at the Temperature Detection terminal and all alerts can be centralised on your On-Prem Server. 

  • The camera data is only processed at the A.i box local level, until there is an alert.
Only one backend and monitoring server is required for your whole organisation. Each of these servers on the right can be combined.

Each Temperature Detection System for elevated temperature can connect locally to the backend server or can connect to the cloud version if you don't want it locally. The backend and monitoring server can be local or in the cloud. If backend in the cloud will need port 443 (outbound only NOT inbound) opened up from your company to Athena Cloud. 
IP addresses to lock down your firewall’s outbound ports can be given by creating a support ticket, as this information is specific to your deployment.

  • You have the option of deleting alerts, according to your policy
