Temperature Check Stations

Lots of news around temperature check kiosks these days.  These are typically small android devices equipped with camera and thermal sensor.  The sensors come from variety of places (Germany for example has one). Example temperature check sensor is Heinmann  ISO 9001-2015 certificate1Heimann Sensor

Typically stand at a distance anywhere from 10 to 40 inches and get a positive or negative reading.

Androids, as well as Raspberry PI, are being used so these devices are relatively inexpensive.

Many people from many industry segments have talked about them from Indian Gaming to Disney Theme Parks.

Here are some excerpts

From Casino.org — The Chumash Casino Resort, owned and operated by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians, has been closed since mid-March by the coronavirus. Last week, the tribal casino announced it will remain closed through the end of May.

When the casino reopens, the facility will be equipped with temperature-taking kiosks. Chumash Casino CEO John Elliott didn’t specify as to the number of kiosks being purchased, but explained people will approach the machine, stand approximately 10 inches away, and the device will reveal their body temperature within three to seven seconds.

The kiosks are FDA-cleared and are as accurate as a manual temperature reading,” said tribal chairman Kenneth Kahn. Each machine can scan one individual at a time.

People who receive a temperature reading of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will be denied entry. “Access will be denied to employees or guests who exceed the temperature threshold recommended by the CDC or Public Health,” Kahn added.

From Kiosk Industry

Temperature checks on employees and visitors are becoming commonplace for many businesses, hospitals, grocery stores, retailers and a host of others. Temperature sensing kiosks can help stem a crisis and optimize a return to business as employees and guests return to work and entertainment venues.
