Applications Not Suited for Hand Held Thermometers

There are specific applications where a handheld thermometer may not be up to the task for protecting you and your staff. This includes:


  1.  Busy commercial or public environments. Since using handheld thermometers such as the Alphamed device, require individual temperature checking, one person at a time, it is simply not possible to utilize a handheld device for busy locations with lots of people wishing to enter into a place. This is because the waiting time would be far too long and impractical.

  2. When a pandemic strikes one of your priorities as an employer in business would be to protect your staff. The use of a handheld thermal checking device requires a team member to be on the front line, in an arm's length distance away from a potentially ill guest. In such instances, a handheld device will not be as ideal as a commercial thermal checking camera system.

  3. A Forehead Hand Held Temperature checker, like the Hikvision model, is sometimes referred to as a "Temperature Gun." The shape of these units resembles a handheld pistol. The configuration of these devices may be intimidating for staff and guests. When in use, these thermometers are aimed at a person's forehead. Temperature checking in such a method may deter staff and clients from entering into a location.

What is a Temperature Thermometer Gun?

The devices you see on this page, are touchless forehead thermometers, at times they are referred to as temperature guns. These devices are designed to check someone's forehead temperature.
