Returning to Normal with Accurate Fever Detection


When government and business leaders start talking about “returning to normal,” how and whether ScanViS thermal detection devices can help provide a safer workplace?


Frequently Asked Questions


Download FAQs


1. What is the best fever detection method for enterprises and organizations?

Ans: Some organizations use handheld thermal scanners as a short-term measurement for temperature screening, but temperature accuracy might be affected by human errors. When it comes to high-volume area or peak hours such as morning check-in hours in office building, bottleneck may occur to increase potential risk in disease spreading.

When body temperature screening becomes a long-term implementation in workplace, permanent installations would be a better option. ScanViS thermal detection devices can screen the face of a moving person, while artificial intelligence software would single out individuals with high temperatures and alert administrator. This higher degree of granularity improves insight, allowing for a more efficient and faster screening process.


2. How do I get notified if someone passes or fails?

Ans: The thermal detection devices perform body temperature scanning on forehead or wrist in 1-2 seconds, access will be granted to those detected with normal temperature by unlocking the door or gate at the entry point. Or else, access will be denied to the person with elevated body temperature, and instant alert will be sent to office admin or receptionist to retest the person


3. Does ScanViS thermal detection series allow parameters setting based on business’s safety protocols?

Ans: Yes. Organizations are able to set parameters on the thermal detection devices, such as normal or abnormal temperature range (for reference, adult body temperatures between 97°F/36°C to 99°F/37°C and children between 97.9°F/36.6°C to 100.4°F/38°C), mask detection, entry permission date and time, etc.


4. Who is in charge of keeping track of the temperatures taken?

Ans: ScanViS thermal detection devices send its data to an authorized administrator. This administrator could either be the person at the front of the building, e.g. receptionist, or someone in charge of attendance taking, visitor management, or office access, e.g. HR/Admin manager.


5. Is it possible to integrate the existing employee database (e.g. face image) with ScanViS thermal detection devices?

Ans: Yes. Suppose the existing database for time-clock purposes include employee information (e.g. name, picture, or employee ID), ScanViS devices can cross-pollinate between customized applications, helping identify current employees at the building from visitors or guests.


6. Where should I set up the thermal detection device, and what if I have more than one entry point?

Ans: It depends on the specific business or organization for the daily traffic flow and the number of people entering the doors or gates. For workplaces with high visitor or employee traffic, ScanViS thermal detection devices would be ideal for multi-entry deployment and remote office entry management. All these devices can be managed by ScanViS WinCMS, a central management system to monitor and control all ScanViS devices from a single location.


7. What is the connectivity and installation of the device?

Ans: ScanViS thermal detection devices offer either ethernet-direct plug-ins or are Wi-Fi accessible. Some offer both. By having a good wireless or wired connection on your network, this could ensure real-time data sharing to the central management system or local server for multi-entry deployment.


8. Is there any other feature ScanViS thermal detection devices offer?

Ans: Yes. The devices also offer access control solution including multi-authentication (i.e. face, QR code, MiFare card, passcode) for entry authorization, access log for attendance recording, and visitor management.
