About Our Body Temperature Monitoring Solutions

FAQs

In these unprecedented times, temperature monitoring of staff and visitors is highly recommended. A recent study has found fever to be present in 80% of symptomatic cases of COVID-19, SARS and MERS. With the threat of new variants and ongoing cases, temperature monitoring is a good practice to implement and provides reassurance to staff and visitors that you are taking all steps possible to keep everyone safe. Temperature monitoring should be implemented along with other safety measures such as maintaining social distancing, thorough cleaning of workspaces, routine hand washing & sanitisation and use of personal protective equipment.

Most temperature screening tablets on the market are the same generic product being resold as different names or model numbers. Having tested these products extensively early in the pandemic, we identified issues with accuracy, software capabilities, poor data security and lack of technical support. This led us to develop temp.cam as a reliable, smart and highly effective tool for temperature monitoring in the workplace. As a UK based company with our own proprietary software, we have the best product on the market, are on hand to fix any issues, provide 24/7 technical support and our system is trusted by premier league football clubs, the Metropolitan Police, TFL and National Rail Operators among many other businesses and organisations.

Your normal body temperature is approximately 37°C. A fever is usually when your body temperature is 37.8°C or higher.

In line with UK government guidance from Public Health England, the temperature reading is taken from the forehead. Therefore, any hats, helmets or obstructions to the forehead must be removed before use.

temp.cam uses IR (infrared) to check a person’s temperature from the forehead. It is quick, contactless and requires you to stand 0.5m away from the sensor. The positioning of the tablet and floor sticker ensures that you stand at the right place and get an accurate reading. The TC620 tablet is mounted on an adjustable holder which allows easy tilting of the device for different heights. Normal readings are displayed in green and receive a short confirmation beep.

If the system detects a body temperature above the specified threshold (usually 37.5°C, however this can be amended by you), an extended beep will sound, and the reading will be displayed in red. At the same time, if you are using the system on wi-fi, an audio and visual alert will be triggered on the monitoring dashboard to inform the management. You can also choose to have the alert emailed to multiple managers which means that within a few seconds you will be able to put high temperature procedures into action to ensure the welfare of staff and visitors alike.

Many things can cause a high temperature, but it is usually caused by your body fighting an infection. Just the same way a person may cough for several reasons. Having a fever or cough does not necessarily mean that you have a Corona virus infection. However, it can you prompt to self-isolate, seek medical advice, get a test if needed and then decide on the best course of action.

Please instruct cleaners to avoid touching the sensor and they should not be putting any cleaning solution directly on to it.
