The testing company bought and tested Bems temperature measurement tablet, examining the following:

  • How often did it miss elevated temperatures?
  • How accurate are measurements vs IR thermometer?
  • Can it measure taller and shorter people?
  • How does subject distance to the terminal impact temperature measurements?
  • Do glasses/hats affect temperature measurement?
  • How accurate is mask detection?
  • How much can users configure settings on the device?
  • Can configuration be done remotely?
