Elevated body temperature
Screening skin temperature accurately and quickly is highly important for public health and safety, especially during times of crisis or pandemic like COVID-19. Infrared technology is critical here, as it allows non-contact, quick, and efficient temperature screens. Infrared temperature scanners and other thermal imaging systems are critical to maintain safe work environments and public spaces by identifying individuals with elevated skin temperatures.
We’ve been temperature screening from the start.

Whatever comes your way
How do infrared temperature screeners work in detecting temperature?
Infrared temperature screening systems use thermal imaging cameras and software to read skin surface temperature and calculate an estimated core body temperature. If that temperature is above a preset range, an alarm will sound to alert the elevated temperature.
What if someone has an elevated skin temperature?
If the thermal imaging system detects an individual has a high temperature, that person should be pulled aside for a secondary screening with a clinical thermometer.
Where can you utilize temperature screening?
And many more:
Temperature screening can make the difference.
Implement infrared screening for the reasons that matter.
Your employees matter.
Reopen and get your team back to work with temperature screening.
Your customers matter.
Provide your customers with peace of mind and a safe experience.
Your family matters.
Safety in public means safety at home. Protect your family by protecting yourself.
Not all infrared camera systems are created equally.
When human health and safety are on the line, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Ensure your temperature screening system has everything you need to succeed.
With three key components, our solution is as easy as 1-2-3.
- A thermal camera
- A screen or computer

How to Measure Body Temperature using a Thermal Camera
At ICI, we follow ISO/TR 13154 and urge our customers to as well. It’s the standard for using infrared temperature
scanners. This standard covers the deployment, implementation, and operational guidelines for identifying febrile humans using a screening thermograph.
- Set up a screening site that’s indoors, away from A/C ducts and windows, and free from strong lighting or sunlight.
- Make sure your temperature reference source is included in the camera’s field of view.
- Screen individuals one at a time in a single file line.
- Measure each person’s temperature from the inner canthus of the eye.
- Watch the screen and listen for an alarm to sound if the system identifies an elevated skin temperature.
Screening is fast and easy, and our team will walk you through the proper setup.

Thermal Cameras vs. Infrared Thermometers
Infrared thermometers are a good first step for temperature screening, but thermal cameras are the best choice for a long-term and safe solution. Thermal cameras are significantly more accurate, allow safe social distancing, and enable you to screen more people faster.

Common questions from other customers.
Below are some commonly asked questions regarding infrared thermometers vs thermal cameras.
Infrared thermometers can be used to measure body temperatures from up to 15 centimeters away from the target zone and provide results in less than half a second.
Infrared cameras measure the temperature of every pixel of the thermal image. They can do this from more than 3 meters away, making screens safe and sanitary.
ICI’s non-contact thermometers have a margin of error of ±.3 °C on skin surface temperature screenings. Infrared thermometers read the surface temperature of a target — not the internal temperature. This means that for skin temperature detection, an infrared thermometer can catch if someone has an elevated skin temperature, though this doesn’t necessarily indicate a fever.
To properly use a non-contact infrared thermometer to scan body temperature, stand 5 – 15 centimeters away from your target. Power on the device and point it at the inside corner of the patient’s eye, holding still. The temperature reading will display within 1 second. Many devices, such as ICI’s HotSpot IR, are battery-powered. You can set an alarm to sound when a temperature reading is abnormally high. ICI’s infrared thermometer powers off automatically and lets you choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit for readings.
The best place to measure temperature from is the inner canthus of the eye — right in the inner corner. This is the hottest part of the human face.
We recommend a thermal camera for temperature screening. Imagine having the power to see the temperature of thousands of spots (or pixels) rather than just a single spot. This is the difference between a thermal imager vs. an infrared thermometer.
For elevated temperature screening, access to this information is critical. If an operator misuses an infrared thermometer and points the device at a person’s forehead instead of the inside corner of the eye, the result will be a lower temperature. This could create a false negative if someone actually does have an elevated temperature. With a thermal imager, you see the whole picture and the temperature of every single part of a person’s face. Additionally, a red light/green light signaling system makes it incredibly easy to tell if someone has an elevated temperature.
