Certify "The #1 Fever Detection Solution" Tested

By Derek Ward, Published Nov 18, 2020, 10:39am EST

"Certify" claims to be "The #1 Fever Detection & Thermal Scanning Solution in the Marketplace" and "found in more than 75% of NFL stadiums", but how well does it really work?

IPVM Image

IPVM purchased and tested the Certify SnapXT Pro terminal, examining the following:

  • How accurate are forehead and inner canthus measurements?
  • Does the device measure temperatures as-is, or does it average them to appear "normal"?
  • How often does it miss elevated temperatures?
  • How accurate are measurements vs an IR thermometer?
  • How does subject distance to the terminals impact temperature measurements?
  • Do environmental factors impact performance?
  • How useful is the Certify cloud portal?
  • How accurate is the device's mask detection and can it be spoofed?
