As more business prepare to re-open, business owners are examining new safety measures that can be put in place by ensuring their workplace remains free of coronavirus exposure as well as to protect the well-being of their employees, customers, and guests.

This blog post examines those ‘must-have’ functionalities of a thermal screening device as it relates to mask detection, accuracy, and rapid detection to achieve a healthier and safer workplace.

Mask Detection from Coronavirus Exposure   


Thermal body temperature detection solutions can provide accurate, reliable body temperature screening. Day-to-day operational challenges such as crowd control, high-volume temperature screening, and quick detection at high-traffic entry points become increasingly challenging to manage. As mask requirements become more rigid throughout the country, thermal body temperature devices can provide the first line of defense against contagious diseases, like coronavirus, from entering your workplace.

Thermal Body Temperature Screening Benefits for Business of All Sizes

Thermal detection can be placed at the entry points of your business, allowing an instant, non-contact method to detect human body temperature. To achieve the right kind of support to protect the spread of coronavirus into your facility and offer peace of mind to employees and customers when coming to your business, key benefits should include:

  • Face Mask Detection
  • Zero contact screening
  • Rapid facial recognition for single or multiple person screening
  • Instant temperature reading

With an accuracy of over 99 percent, thermal detection solutions can recognize and register individuals as they enter your facility. If someone has abnormally high body temperature or is not wearing a mask, an alarm will sound to alert you of a possible health threat to your business.

Mask Detection Screening for a More Secure Business

As coronavirus cases continue to rise and local government officials tighten up on city mandates, which in some areas of the country include the requirement of each individual to wear a mask any time they’re outside of their home, accurate and reliable screening for thermal body temperatures – especially when a mask is worn – is vital for business owners. From both public safety and workplace security standpoints, thermal temperature screening that offers mask detection screening and alert notification is essential.
