Fever Inspect Tested

By Derek Ward, Published Apr 07, 2021, 11:17am EDT

US Startup Fever Inspect has released a Made-in-the-USA device with atypical integrated blackbodies, eliminating the need for a separate blackbody unit.

But how well does it work in real-world testing?

We tested Fever Inspect FIP-S, analyzing:

  • How Fever Inspect's measurement approach compares to others
  • How easy or difficult it is to "beat/trick" the camera with elevated temperatures
  • How distance, hot backgrounds, and glasses impact temperature measurement
  • How quickly temperature measurements are made
  • How setup and configuration compare to others
  • How the system can be monitored and results reviewed
