Subjects should look directly at the camera during measurement.
Set up your screening area with the camera pointed at the Heat Source in front of a wall. This will help create a flat thermal background and allow for faster scan times and more reliable readings. Warm objects in the background that are near a person’s skin temperature or warmer than 40°C (104°F) may reduce system performance.
After set up, measure and confirm the distance from the Heat Source to the Camera is no further than 5 feet (1.5 meters).
We recommend marking the ground with tape or floor decals to ensure all subjects are measured from the exact same distance and while positioning the subject next to the Heat Source.
For more consistent readings, ensure the subject’s eyes are clearly exposed by removing any eyewear. Subjects wearing a face mask should pull it down slightly and subjects wearing a hat should lift the brim to fully expose the eyes.
