Helps Facilitate Safe Reopening of Private and Public Sector
Ensures Body Temperature and Hand Sanitization Compliance with Controlled Entry and Optional Mask Monitoring
MINNEAPOLIS, May 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Municipal Parking Services, Inc. (MPS) today announced the launch of the first and only automated system to help mitigate the asymptomatic spread of Covid-19 on private and public premises through the detection of elevated temperatures, audited hand sanitation and entry access control.
Known as the Sentry Health Kiosk™, the system was inspired by the company's line of touchless smart parking products currently installed in municipalities and university settings around the world. Sentry Health Kiosk™ is a non-contact kiosk that automatically takes and reports body temperature, mandates hand sanitization and manages access control while creating a comprehensive audit trail.
The system leverages MPS patented technologies to provide best-in-class safety and peace of mind for consumers, employees and employers. With an optional facial recognition function, it can also ensure compliance in locations where face masks are required.
"Studies show that most people with Covid-19 are asymptomatic, so having a device that just takes temperatures is inadequate at best," said Joe Caldwell, founder of Sentry Health. "According to experts, the best way to protect yourself and mitigate the spread of a virus is simply to wash your hands. Sentry Health Kiosk is the only system that checks both boxes – temperature reading and audited hand sanitization. If a person doesn't complete the process, they simply can't come in," Caldwell added.
- The technology can also allow for personal health surveys and other information, including remote or on-site video calls through the kiosk's interactive smart screen.
- MPS is significantly expanding its capacity to accommodate the rapid demand for the kiosk.
- The Company will donate 5% of Sentry Health profits to provide kiosks to foodbanks and other non-profit organizations.
