Domestic gadget and smartphone accessories brand iGear has launched Thermo Check, a contactless unmanned infrared thermometer that can be mounted on a wall or a tripod at the entrance of housing societies, offices, malls, schools, and many such areas.
Neha Sharma, Co-founder, iGear, said, “The iGear Thermo Check is a simple yet very efficient medical gadget that can help create a safe working, schooling, or shopping area and help control the spread of the deadly virus. With a Thermo Check device at every entrance, visitors, employees, students, and others can be safely screened from a distance before entering. This fully automatic infrared thermometer helps establishments avoid the exposure of infection to its security staff while keeping the premises safe from coronavirus.”
With Thermo Check, the visitor simply needs to scan themselves before entering and the device will instantly alert the establishment if there is a potentially infected patient at the entrance.
It sports a large, bright and crisp LCD which is very easy and comfortable to read. It displays the current temperature of a person being scanned in either Fahrenheit or Celsius, depending on the requirements by the establishment. A laser beam with IR transmitters and receivers are built on the top where the patient/visitor simply needs to place his/her forehead at a distance between 1cm to 7cm. The device will instantly read the temperature and produce the results on the screen within 0.5 seconds and with a high accuracy rate of ±0.2°.
The measuring range is between 32°C to 43°C and the device is set to automatically show results depending on the scanned temperature. When it detects below 37.2°C, it beeps once and alerts with a voice “Normal Temperature”. When it detects between 37.2°C and 37.9°C, it instantly beeps and sounds an alarm, indicating “High Temperature.” And if the temperature is detected higher than 37.9°C, the device beeps thrice and notifies saying “Super High Temperature.” You can also choose between English or Hindi as the voice language using the instruction manual.
The iGear Thermo Check also includes a digital counter which reads and stores the number of people that have been scanned. The establishment can read the number of people entering the premises during the day/week/month at the click of a button. No personal data is stored. The thermometer weighs just 200g. It operates on a built-in rechargeable battery and also can work using three AA cells or a power adapter using the bundled USB to power cable and is very easy to install, deploy and operate.
The iGear Thermo Check will be exclusively available for an introductory price of Rs 1,990 on Croma.com, and comes with a 1-year standard industry warranty.
