How do smart thermometers measure body temperature?
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact us all each day, we’re learning more about the virus and how to prevent the spread. While everyone’s symptoms are different and there can be a variety of indicators that someone is infected with COVID-19, a fever remains a common symptom in many who are diagnosed with the virus. Because of this fact, many businesses have implemented new safety measures to protect both their employees and customers. Some common measures include infrared temperature cameras and other body temperature readers.
For a while, many businesses opted to use the well-known infrared temperature guns as a means of taking everyone’s temperature before they entered a facility. Although these devices are a cheap, easy option, they aren’t the most effective—and accuracy is crucial under these circumstances. This is why many businesses are turning to more advanced, reliable technology like body temperature readers.
What’s the best temperature reader for your business?
These days, there are plenty of different smart temperature systems to choose from. All of these devices have their benefits, so it’s important to assess your business’s specific needs before purchasing one. How many employees do you have? How much foot traffic, if any, do you see each day? Do you want to use the system as both a temperature device and a clock-in system? Asking yourself these questions, among others, will help you pinpoint the best device for your company and ensure you do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19. Below are just a few smart temperature reader options that will help you keep your employees and customers safe.

This 3-in-1 solution solution checks for metal, monitors people’s body temperatures, and permits entry to verified people only.
Smart sanitizing hubs
These devices come with built-in facial recognition, a temperature measuring feature, and a hand sanitizing dispenser.
Thermal temperature cameras
These devices combine surveillance with temperature monitoring for maximum safety. They’re designed for use in high-traffic areas like airports and concert venues.
How do smart devices take temperatures?
Smart temperature devices are non-contact, self-operating systems that quickly and accurately scan people’s temperatures. They can be installed at entrances, checkpoints, waiting areas, and hallways—anywhere there’s a lot of foot traffic. The device scans a user and produces a temperature read in only seconds. All readings are extremely accurate—+/-.5 degrees—so you can feel confident about the results. Plus, if a high temperature is detected, your administrators will be notified immediately, and the person will be denied entry. The whole process takes only seconds and is a great way to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Invest in a healthy future
If this pandemic has taught us anything it’s that you can never be too prepared. Investing in safety measures, like temperature devices, may seem miniscule during normal times, but they can be lifesaving during a global pandemic.
