COVID-19 Solutions

Helping to protect & improve lives

We have recognised the extremely tough times our Clients in Supported Living and Care are going through and the many challenges Covid-19 has brought to them.

In response, the team at Yorcoms have been working hard to develop new and refine current technology solutions to enable Operators/Providers to make their environments safer, healthier and happier places to live and work in.

Beating Isolation withYorWiFi

With yet another national lockdown meaning huge numbers of residents are effectively confined to their rooms/apartments in Supported Living Schemes and Care homes across the Country, Isolation and its often damaging effects has become a real issue.

We believe that enabling residents to easily keep in contact with family and friends over the internet has never been more important than it is now.

With this in mind, the Yorcoms Team have recently developed a range of new YorWiFi offerings, including a quick and easy, low cost portable/self install option to enable providers to deliver fully monitored/managed, UNLIMITED WiFi to residents wherever they are located.  Even in their own rooms/apartments and all from only £30 + VAT Per Month INCLUDING the Device!!

Kentix SmartXcan

MultiSensor SmartScan for body temperature measurement

Identification of infected persons is crucial for your organisation


In order to reduce the risk of spreading viral diseases (COVID-19, influenza, etc.) in public areas effectively and permanently and at the same time to make a better prediction of emerging geo-hotspots, it is necessary to identify infected persons at an early stage, to prevent their access to any kind of crowd and to feed collected data to AI-supported analysis databases in compliance with GDPR.


Perfect COVID-19 solutions for:

✔Care Homes

✔Housing Associations

✔ Local Authorities

✔ Hospitals


✔ Sports Facilities


✔ Organisations where there is high footfall

KENTIX SmartXcan is a new building Access Control system that provides reliable body temperature measurement for healthcare, public institutions, business leisure facilities and other crowdy facilities. The handling is fast, intuitive and self-explanatory, the results reliable and accurate. The measurement is automated and contactless – thus safe for the user.

The Kentix SmartXcan is available in 2 options:

without RFID £899 ex. VAT

with RFID £1159 ex. VAT


Fever measurement is the most effective and pragmatic method

Fever is a non-obligatory, non-specific symptom, but it is a very useful screening tool for infections such as the corona virus. Any infection that is detected early saves potentially several lives, which is why the measurement of fever plays an important role in the detection of potentially infected persons:
Fever is by far the most common initial diagnosis (according to WHO Report 2/2020: 87.9% for COVID-19) the body temperature rises due to the increasing immune defence even before the onset of usual symptoms detection can usually still take place at low virus load

One simple measure for many applications

An automated, fast, safe and intuitive fever measurement at central, if possible electrically controllable, access points to crowds of people is an important and in many risk regions tested measure to provide long-term and sustainable protection against viral diseases, to re-establish social and economic contacts, and at the same time to restore the confidence of the population in public safety before epidemics flare up again.



  • Contactless body temperature measurement, no contact contamination
  • DSGVO-compliant operation possible, through self measurement
  • High precision measurement, over 1,000 measuring points
  • Manipulation protection through intell. Thermal image analysis


  • Fast measurement in less than 1 second
  • High throughput, up to 700 persons/hour
  • Early detection of regionally emerging fever hotspots
  • Plug & Play installation through PoE connection


  • Self-explanatory user guidance through intelligent sensor technology
  • Simple and flexible mounting
  • Live control via web browser for doormen
  • Automatic control of doors or turnstiles

Userinterface “Hardware”

No operating personnel is necessary for the use.

Focus measuring point – approach head – measurement. This is done intuitively, the measurement is confirmed optically and acoustically within only 0.6 seconds.

The whole process of approaching the SmartXcan, measuring and stepping away takes about 3-5 seconds.

The LED bar shows the result directly with GREEN or RED. Depending on the setting, the LED bar can also display three temperature ranges, such as elevated temperature, fever or high fever. 


Userinterface “Software”

1024 sensors measure the temperature at many points of the eyes and forehead. Additional deep-learning algorithms are used to continuously teach the thermal image and optimize the measurement process.

Disturbing influences can thus be faded out as far as possible. With more than 1,000 measured values, the result is a reliable statement of body temperature.

The SmartXcan is simply integrated into the network via Ethernet with PoE, so only one cable feed is necessary. Via HTTPS and the integrated web server, configuration and future updates are easily carried out. With the REST-API, external systems can be easily integrated at software level and controlled in real time via web hooks.


SmartXcan with integrated RFID reader

The version with integrated RFID reader (Mifare DESFire) is used to activate and assign the measurement to persons. The persons are created in the user administration accordingly with an RFID token. Each measurement is then actively started by holding the RFID token in front of them. Measurements can then be reported with assignment to the person. The report can be sent by e-mail, SNMP or Web-Hook. Temperature measurements can also be viewed in the SmartXcan logbook. User administration can also be carried out via LDAP or Active Directory.

The Kentix SmartXcan is available in 2 options:

without RFID £899 ex. VAT

with RFID £1159 ex. VAT
