Questions to be answered for a successful installation:

1) Identification of appropriate location for the elevated Body Temperature Detection System.
2) Identification of the appropriate angles and layout for the equipment, especially the Camera, and the Heat Source Reference Point (HSRP-Blackbody) with respect to the subjects being measured.
3) Is their 110 power available for equipment at both ends of this diagram: For both the camera and the HSRP?
4) Will this be plugged into the network or run as a stand-alone unit? Most units are networked. An ethernet jack is needed in close proximity to the equipment.
5) Identify the employees responsible for the installation(s).

Site Location and Layout Guidance:
A) Understand that the system is for use inside, without crosswind, away from HVAC, and out of direct sunlight.
B) The subject should pass in front of the thermal camera WITHOUT any reflective surfaces in the field of view directly behind them.
C) Give consideration to all factors or the unique environment that affects Pedestrian traffic flow to create a choke point.
D) Availability of 110 power outlets for the camera and HSRP location.
E) Make aesthetic plan for cable management. Arrange availability to run a cable from the camera to the equipment/AI box location. If the ceiling provides for cable drops.
F) Have masks, gloves, and the contingency plan for pedestrian traffic flow, if a high temperature is detected. Collection area for secondary screening with a medical thermometer. Denial of services. Personal protective equipment available for potentially symptomatic person. Reiteration of policy.
G) Make the necessary hardscape changes, if any, to accommodate your installation schematic. Signage, Velvet rope type barriers etc.
H) Advertisement to the community or population should be considered.
I)  Each camera will be plugged into the Athena router with an ethernet cable. Supplied 20 foot cable, if you need more you will need to supply.  

J) Further Noted on Camera Height and HSRP Height: As high as possible because the system functions best when the line of sight view between the Camera and the HSRP. These measurements are sensitive to vibration, and movement. It's best to mount from the ceiling or wall. 1/4" UNC 20 is the universal mount for the camera and the HSRP. Mount each camera on the stand (stand included for your convenience, at setup), in line with the following guidelines for placement:

Each camera should be mounted 6 feet high or above eye level. Should not be more then 9 feet in air because you also need to keep short subjects within the image.

Cameras should be facing incoming foot traffic head on.
Camera should be 6 - 12 ft from the scanning zone.
Camera thermal detection width is 4ft wide (at the 10ft away mark) with the standard 15mm lens
Location selection should be inside, in still air.
Avoid placing near HVAC intake or return.
HSRP Blackbody unit should be same distance as person being scanned.
HSRP Blackbody should have clear line of view to camera. Do not allow people walk in front of blackbody.
Again, Best to hang from ceiling where no one can step in front of the line-of-site, if they are both at 8 feet in air.
K) Extreme weather can reduce accuracy. The solution is waiting in a controlled, room temperature environment until homeostasis evens the surface temperature of the skin/inner canthus.

L) Corners are the best location for deployment.
