In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and as we approach what’s likely to be a new normal, elevated body temperature scanning and its applications for employee and guest safety, access and visitor control, and more are being thrust into the limelight. While these elevated body temperature scanning solutions may be a requirement to do business as the world reopens and works back toward traditional operation, you need to assure your employees and customers that you are taking steps to ensure their safety now, regardless of any possible future mandates.
With that in mind, we are currently vetting potential solutions in order to thoroughly assess the market, select products that offer differing levels of service, integration and additional applications, and help guide you toward which one of those products will serve you best.

Leveling Expectations for Thermal Protection
Scanning entrants to your space will play a role in protecting its occupants from both the novel coronavirus and other disruptions that may emerge in the future.
Many factors can affect how effective these solutions are, including the way in which they scan bodily temperatures, their ability to be autonomous, maintenance and setup requirements, their integration with other on-site systems, available alerts and screening, and more.
Though elevated body temperature scanning is only one aspect of a thorough safety and security system, with the correct approach and expectations, it can help form a holistic solution that reinforces your commitment to keeping everyone in your space healthy and safe.
You need accuracy and reliability that promotes a real sense of protection and security, not a surface-level fix that won’t stand the test of time.
