A safer return to work, helping companies reopen workplaces as the world focuses on restarting the global economy.


[b-19]’s thermal imaging capability can detect people entering the workplace or events with relatively high body temperatures that may imply sickness.


[b-19]’s contact tracing technology can trace the interactions and movements of individuals who may have tested positive for Covid-19 and stores historical data for up to 30 days.


[b-19] can integrate with all service desk systems, which will enable your organisation to rapidly respond and manage these risks. 


[b-19] is Blackout’s contact tracing solution to some of the current safeguarding issues that organisations are facing when trying to bring their employees and audiences back to the office and events.

Unlocking Workplaces and the return of fans and audiences

Created by Blackout Technologies, [b-19] holds the key to a safer return to work and events. It enables employers to contact-trace the colleagues of employees contracting Covid-19, limiting the spread of the virus and protecting the wider workforce. It also can help sports fans feel safer about supporting their teams at stadiums as well as helping theatregoers enjoy the arts. The system uses a non-invasive, GDPR-compliant combination of beacon technology and Bluetooth signals to monitor smart device proximities. [b-19] helps employers and employees to feel safer about their return to work with real-time contact-tracing capabilities. Event organisers need to do everything they can to safely bring spectators back to various events.


[b-19] can enable companies to responsibly safeguard their workforce as part of the world’s post-lockdown recovery.

How it works

[b-19] is a thermal imaging and proximity-focused system using a combination of real time signal data to pinpoint users’ changing locations in relation to each other, enabling effective contact-tracing for individuals who fall ill with Covid-19. It's GDPR-compliant and not invasive unlike other contact-tracing apps, making it easier for employees and audiences to return to the environments they are use to being in.


[b-19] has teamed-up with an NHS approved thermal imaging company to provide a comprehensive early warning detection of high temperatures in individuals and a digital contact tracing solution.

Proactivity = Confidence

By utilising [b-19] and thermal imaging, organisations will have the necessary tools to remain vigilant in the safeguarding of employees and audiences.

  • Efficiency: 60 people screened per minute.
  • Rapid deployment and easily managed.
  • Safe. No contact with individuals.
  • Accurate to +/- 0.5 degrees.

[b-19] is a UK technology which aims to give global workforces and events the confidence to return while helping individuals stay healthy.

Bringing the World back to work

A recent poll conducted by Opinium found:

  • 70% of workers felt the UK will suffer long-term damage without an imminent return to work
  • Almost half of those not in their usual workplace (45%) are ready to return to work
  • Of those not ready for an imminent return to work the key factor is fear of catching the virus in the workplace (59%)

[b-19] helps employers comply with new workplace safety measures, demonstrating their commitment to the health and well-being of their staff.

Similarly, [b-19] can help employees feel confident about returning to work.

Theatres and Sports teams need ticket holders to return in order to make revenue and remain financially viable.
