How Are Temperature Scanners Used?
The face recognition thermometer RF1000, is a type of temperature scanner that can quickly detect the body temperature of employees entering into a building. The person walks up to the unit and looks at the screen. The device then takes a reading and shows a pass or fail with a sound. Once the person is cleared they can then proceed into the office. As you can see, this is a very quick and easy way to ensure staff do not enter your business with any type of high fever. This is extremely helpful in preventing the spread of serious viruses.
Does Temperature Scanning Stop COVID-19?
According to the World Health Organisation, temperature scanning at the entry and exit points to a country is not an effective way to stop the international spread of COVID-19. People that are infected by the virus, maybe in an incubation period, so the symptoms will not be there for the scanner to pick up on.
Temperature scanners are an affordable way to protect your business and staff from possible virus contamination. With a cost on average between $2500-$3500, it is an affordable option for small to medium businesses in Australia. Although it won’t stop the international spread, it is the best and quickest way to check if people have a high temperature, which could cause virus spread.
