Temperature Kiosk Approved Solutions

Editors Note 2021:  Recently we see where infrared kiosk reseller is suing their supplier of temperature kiosks due to inaccurate results.  Temperature kiosks enjoyed a large popularity initially but buying cheap meant that most of the product was Chinese-based and employed cheap temperature sensors.  The temperature kiosks being deployed as of late 2021 are now equipped with state of the art FLIR and other temperature sensors designed for people.  Many of the Chinese units also used Chinese software from Dahua for their facial recognition. Dahua and HIK Vision are both blacklisted by the Federal Government.

Hygiene Theater Marriott

Deploying temperature kiosks to take a temperature verification check has generated much interest recently.  Temperature verification kiosks could be one strategy for re-opening business and assuring customers and employees of safety. Or they could be what the CEO of Marriott calls “hygiene theater”

There are three deployment models.

  1. One is what we call “hygiene theater”.  A lower resolution infrared scanner as a rule misses temperature variations but it does provide a certain psychological effect. We think we are ok is the intended effect.  These are single pixel or pixel array infrared screening systems. Independent test labs such as IPVM identified many as manufactured by BEM in China and being resold here by US companies. The sensors used (Melexis and Heimann) are designed primarily for microwaves, defrosters and A/C.
  2. The next level is higher resolution bolometers and they can be identified as having a much larger pixel set. These are available typically for under $3000.  Nanonation and 22Miles offer these, and with a full range of supplemental software.
  3. Finally we have thermal imaging camera solutions such as high-end FLIR. Kiosk Innovations in Colorado has a very nice unit that comes in multiple form factors.

Caution: Some of the low end Chinese-supplied systems come with facial recognition embedded in the tablet and those algorithms and server “touches” can be with blacklisted Chinese firms (Dahua & HIKVision). In a medical setting that can constitute a severe HIPAA violation. The Chinese systems will often tell you that scanning multiple people at the same time is possible.  Not possible. Alabama wasted a million dollars.

Some general observations:

  • Forget outdoors unless highly controlled
  • Anyone who says they scan multiple people simultaneously will also sell you land in Florida…
  • Many of the low-end Chinese tablets come with facial recognition engine by Dahua. That introduces potential HIPAA violations.
  • The CDC recommended questionnaire is valuable to include.

Disney Point of View (and reminds us of Marriott CEO point of view)

Bob Iger, CEO of Walt Disney Co., is pondering what such a future would look like. Perhaps, he suggests, it would look like testing the temperatures of all of the guests before they enter the theme parks.

“One of the things that we’re discussing already is that in order to return to some semblance of normal, people will have to feel comfortable that they’re safe,” Iger said in an interview with Barron’s. “Some of that could come in the form, ultimately, of a vaccine, but in the absence of that, it could come from basically, more scrutiny, more restrictions. Just as we now do bag checks for everybody that goes into our parks, it could be that at some point we add a component that takes people’s temperatures, as a for-instance.”

Twitter reaction to the idea of testing all visitors before they are allowed inside the parks was swift and decidedly negative.  Full article

Another industry looking to reassure is the airline travel industry.

“And when international aviation does start up again, there will be a need to protect and reassure passengers. Hand sanitizer will likely need to be available throughout the airport, including at boarding gates. “And there is evidence that temperature control at airports reassures passengers, even though it is only a partial solution,” says Powell. “Likewise, routinely wearing masks is contrary to WHO advice but passengers may prefer cabin crew to wear them initially.”  See article on reassuring passengers from iata.org

Screen Last Cleaned Customer Notification

This new feature of KioTouch enables KioWare to track the number of user sessions, active time and total runtime since last cleaning, and have KioWare generate alerts based on two thresholds for each item: ie, a warning and error.  It can be displayed to the kiosk user via a toolbar control or via our API, and it can send alerts to KWS/KioCloud to enable management to schedule cleaning.  The maintenance staff enters a custom exit code to reset the counters when cleaning is completed.  More information.
