Dahua Temperature Measurement Station Tested

By Ethan Ace and Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Jun 17, 2020

Dahua hit the market hard with its original 'fever' camera (tested here). Now, they have a temperature measurement station, that costs just a fraction of the camera / blackbody system. But how well does it work?

IPVM Image

We bought and tested the Dahua DHI-ASI7213X-T1, examining:

  • Can it read taller and shorter people?
  • Does measurement differ with range?
  • How accurate are the measurements vs human body temperature?
  • How easily does it miss an elevated temperature?
  • How well does mask detection work?
  • Can it measure accurately on the move?
  • How well does it read with glasses, hats, masks?
