8 Tips to maximise your body temperature measurement systems

8 Tips to maximise your body temperature measurement systems ZKTeco

At ZKTeco Europe we want to share 8 tips to maximise your body temperature measurement systems for best performance and to improve your building's access control system:


The ideal environment operating temperature for ZKTeco temperature detection devices ranges from 16ºC and 32ºC. Any temperature outside this range must be electronically compensated in the equipment.


The devices should not be exposed to direct sunlight to avoid glare or adverse infrared sensor operation.


For best measurement results maintain a distance with the device of approximately 40 cm.


Indoor use is recommended as environmental factors such as rain, wind or dust can cause malfunction as well as irreparable damage to the electronic units.


The optimal mounting height for your temperature detection device is the average user height.


Avoid wearing accessories such as headbands, hats or reflective elements.


The use of several devices in proximity to each other may cause interference between them. It is necessary to form an angle greater than 60° between devices within 1m distance.


Exercising or being exposed to intense heat for long periods can raise our body temperature above normal, leading to misleading results.
