Byron Center-based Pro-Vision Video Systems released the new Touchless IR Thermometer for simple temperature screening on school buses and before entering buildings to detect potential health hazards and prevent COVID-19 exposure.
With a built-in IR sensor, the device automatically detects when a palm or forehead is close to initiate a temperature scan — all with contact-free operation to keep people safe and follow social distancing guidelines.
Once a scan is completed, the device provides audible and visual notifications for irregular temperature readings to provide the instant data — which is not tracked or maintained — needed to act based on individual policies and procedures.
“Schools need dependable tools that can help them prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect their students and staff,” said Corey Mathews, sales manager – transit division at Pro-Vision. “This thermometer is another important tool schools can use to quickly detect any potential risks and take action to keep people safe.”
The Touchless IR Thermometer is a standalone device and doesn’t require a Pro-Vision video recording system to operate. It runs on a lithium-ion battery or through a USB-to-12 volt power or USB-to-outlet adapter to operate as its own device.
With versatile mounting options like 3M adhesive, high-strength magnets or ¼-inch-20 mounting screws, the Touchless IR Thermometer offers easy installation on any school bus or building surface.
Pro-Vision also manufactures vehicle video recording systems, body-worn cameras and provides data management and cloud-based storage solutions.
