What Do Users Say About FeverWarn?
FeverWarn has been proven by thousands of
installations across North America…
“We use our FeverWarn Temperature Scanning daily! As a preschool and childcare center, it is a vital tool in our business. As parents enter to drop off and pick up their children, we do a temperature and wellness check. This handy machine speeds up the process and is touchless.
We appreciate the company working with us to help get our machine up and running properly. Their customer service has been excellent. We will absolutely be doing business in the future with them”.
His Growing Grove Preschool & Child Care Center
First Presbyterian Church (California)
“We have been using FeverWarn for 3 months in our 9 Urgent Care Clinics and it has delivered all that we expected. It screens for patients for fevers quickly and unobtrusively and has been well received by our patients and staff.
We set up stanchions at the entry doors to our lobbies and have patients pass by the device before approaching the reception desk. The speaker announces that the patient is cleared for our staff and other patients in the lobby to hear.
The device also allowed us to move our patient screener back behind the reception desk where they can work safely and more efficiently. We are very satisfied and would recommend it to others.
No one is forced to expose themselves to get accurate temperatures. No one has a handheld temperature gun pointed at their head and they are not limited by size.”
Doctors on Duty Medical Clinics
“FeverWarn was chosen for our hospital because it enabled all staff to get to work on time. It took temperatures quickly, efficiently, and accurately. No other system was this this efficacious and timely.
In addition, the customer service staff is second to none. They are committed to getting it right, from the CEO to the inside support staff. “

Make A Fist, See For Yourself
Increased body temperatures spreads to the skin via blood circulation. The skin surface of the hand, due to exposed high arterial flow, responds easily and steadily to changes in mean body temperature. Results are repeatable and steady with +/- 0.5 degrees.
Try it yourself. Make a fist. You can clearly see the arteries in the hand leading to the fingers. The closeness of these arteries to the skin wall makes this area ideal for self-scanning and produces excellent results across a vast majority of the population.
Why the Wrist Beats the Head in Temperature Scanning
- Virtually no perspiration vs. heavy perspiration of forehead which interferes with infrared scanning
- Reduced hair on wrist/fist vs. possible hair interfering with forehead infrared thermometer scanners
- No makeup on wrist/fist vs. eye and skin makeup on head infrared scanning
- No interference by hats and face covering, which is commonplace with head infrared scanning
- Easy self-serving without danger of personnel exposure prior to results
The Only Temperature Scanners with
OPX Extended Ambient Technology
Almost all infrared scanners, including handheld versions operated by others, are only rated for a temperature range of 70-94° F. In addition, they cannot be used where there is direct sunlight (due to UV rays), whether indoors or not. None of the handheld scanners are rated for outdoor usage.
FeverWarn has changed all that with the inclusion of OPX technology on all its new temperature scanners. The first of its type available anywhere in the world, the proprietary and patent-pending OPX technology extends the temperature bandwidth for infrared temperature scanning by up to 50% over ordinary temperature scanners. OPX consists of new spatial geometry sensors combined with an artificial intelligence algorithm to filter out the effects of cold and warm weather as well as problems with sunlight.
FeverWarn OPX models are ideal for temperature variant indoor entranceways that are not fully heated or cooled to regular indoor ambient bandwidth and has been shown to work from 40-104° F.
OPX technology available only from FeverWarn—making hand-held scanners obsolete and unsafe because physical distancing can’t be maintained.
What Happens in Colder Weather?
All infrared fever scanners have some inherent issues in colder ambient temperatures, especially when measuring unprotected body surfaces’ temperature. Knowing this, we’ve designed maximum flexibility into the FeverWarn 150/250 series. A longer snout allows for the scanning of the wrist/fist area and other body surfaces as well. With colder weather, the wrist’s underside is usually more protected from the cold, enabling individuals to obtain an accurate scan of the wrist or forearm’s underside by pulling up their coat/sweater sleeve.
This is especially true in high wind chill conditions because cold wind draws heat from exposed body parts (forehead, hands, etc.), leaving the skin surface much colder. Winter windchill can make the situation worse as a few minutes of exposure can drive down the skin and internal body temperature, hampering infrared thermometer results.

Why FeverWarn is Best Among Infrared Scanners
There’s Lots of Ways to Measure Temperature…But Few Include All the Advantages of FeverWarn.
Accuracy. Reliability. Simplicity. Safety
FeverWarn is ideally designed and positioned to offer advantages in self-service monitoring, proven accuracy, data storage and USB outputs all at a reasonable price and easy installation over alternative Infrared scanners. Like all IR scanners outdoor use is not recommended and it should be installed inside.
Forehead Infrared Scanner
Most Infrared forehead temperature guns, although accurate and affordable, require human interaction and do not allow for proper social distancing. Sun, makeup, and varying heights also add to the difficulties of measuring the temperature from the forehead. Not for outside.
Uses same infrared technology as FeverWarn. Compromised by forehead perspiration, hair, makeup and head coverings not found on wrist measurements
Accuracy depends on perspiration, makeup, hair and positioning distance
Head covering would need to be removed
Human intervention required
No data outputs for provable future compliance defense
No data outputs for auxiliary devices
FeverWarn OPX Series Infrared Scanner
FeverWarn uses the same infrared sensors as other Infrared scanners, but has been specifically designed for fist/wrist artery temperature scanning, which is not subject to high perspiration, significant hair, head coverings or make-up. Not for outside.
Manufactured in the USA
Consistent accuracy not compromised by forehead perspiration, make-up, hair and head coverings
Sensor location is not compromised by UV sunlight
Offers either local or cloud data storage to preserve compliance with monitoring guidelines
No additional intervention or supervision required as with handheld temperature guns

Convenient stands and shrouds available to assist installation
Camera Based Infrared Scanner
Infrared scanning cameras, while accurate, are expensive, and in some cases where facial recognition is used can cause privacy concerns. Not for outside.
No human intervention required
Some models provide data outputs for future compliance defense
Some models provide data outputs for auxiliary devices
Most use similar infrared sensor principle as FeverWarn
Accuracy depends on exposure to UV sunlight, makeup, facial coverings and distance and resolution of camera
Not recommended for crowd scanning unless very high resolution camera, should primarily be used for individual scanning as with FeverWarn.
Typically require separately sold computer interface not included

Frequently Asked Questions
The OPX spatial geometry sensors included with all FeverWarn OPX Series models collect the infrared radiation in its field of view. Then the infrared radiation energy is converted into corresponding electrical signals when converging on the photoelectric detector.
Ongoing concern about employee and visitor wellbeing is the new byproduct of the pandemic era, no matter what happens next. Employers do not want to have sick people in their workplace or inside areas. Employees want to be assured that there are no sick people in the environment as they return to work
The screening of people with temperatures, no matter if viral or bacterial, is even more crucial as we recognize that most buildings do not have adequate air exchange systems and that inside space with a high-temperature individual can easily result in others getting sick and preventing high productivity and good health.
Employers show they care by using FeverWarn; in turn, employees recognize that FeverWarn is a sign that their employers care about their wellbeing. Employees realize that the screening of visitors keeps them safer as well.
Screening for employee health to keep sick people home is the new standard in building safety and employee wellbeing.
