The Importance of Measuring Temperature

June 30, 2020

Now more than ever it is important to make sure that people’s temperatures are properly monitored and recorded so it is easier to keep track of anyone that could potentially carry any kind of illness on them. As of writing this we are still dealing with the COVID-19 virus so knowing people’s temperature is crucial for this.

Handheld thermometers are good at handling this and there are even models that allow you to take someone’s temperature from a distance but if you can do it without needing another person there you minimise risk as much as you can. Due to the current pandemic affecting the world, I believe that going forward we are going to see a lot more measures put in place to properly monitor people’s temperature as they go about their daily lives and go in and out of their places of work and even when they go shopping. It may not be a part of life that sticks around once this pandemic has been dealt with but what this does mean is that if this sort of situation ever comes around again it will be much easier to put in the needed measures to deal with it and monitor people’s temperature without needing handheld readers.

I think that going forwards we are going to see a lot of companies coming out with their own ways of dealing with this issue. There could be updated CCTV cameras that are able to monitor and record someone temperature as soon as they enter a building or even on facial recognition device.

What can we do?

Recently at ClockedIn we have been finalising work on our latest biometric device, the SmartHub-FT. This facial recognition device will not only connect to our time and attendance software but record the temperatures of those using it as well.
