SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Seek Thermal, the leading supplier of thermal sensors to the public safety market and one of the largest suppliers of all commercial thermal sensors globally, announced today the launch of its Seek Scan™ Kiosk, an all-in-one contactless thermal scanning solution that provides everything businesses, institutions and venues need to start temperature screening in minutes. Though the Seek Scan process has always provided an additional layer of preventive screening, the new Seek Scan Kiosk takes it a step further by including a Seek Scan Camera and Reference Heat Source, a 10" tablet, durable aluminum stands, and all required cables for the complete package right out of the box. Offered at $2,695 (MSRP), this is one of the most affordable thermal imaging systems that meets FDA guidelines for initial body temperature assessment during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
For employers and building operations specialists who wish to conduct daily in-person health checks of employees or visitors prior to entry, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Seek Scan system is designed to automate body temperature screening by using skin temperature as a proxy. With ±0.3°C (±0.5°F) of accuracy, it delivers the same performance as an infrared temporal thermometer – but automated from a safe social distance. In a few seconds, the thermal camera automatically detects a face, identifies the most reliable facial features for measurement and displays an alert if the readings are warmer than the customizable alarm temperature.
Adding convenience and control to office safety procedures, APIs for Seek Scan are available to business owners and integrators for access control, video management systems and other integrated capabilities. Additionally, a Seek Scan Kiosk Kit is now offered for existing Seek Scan customers looking to upgrade their system to a professional, self-contained kiosk that is perfect for any lobby or facility.
"Recognizing that a 'one size fits all' approach isn't always practical, the expansion of our Seek Scan product line is intended to provide new – and current – customers with the options that best suit their individual needs," said Mike Muench, President & CEO, Seek Thermal. "With the addition of the Seek Scan Kiosk and the Kiosk Kit, we are excited to offer our most complete, 'out of the box' thermal temperature screening solution that can be set up quickly and easily. This simple, attractive and affordable system is ideal for businesses of all sizes and categories looking to improve office health and safety procedures."
Seek Scan should not be used to diagnose, or exclude diagnosis of, COVID-19 or any other disease or condition. A diagnostic test by medical professionals must be performed to determine if someone has COVID-19.
