FLIR Screen-EST Screening Software Tested

By: Ethan Ace and Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Jun 30, 2020

In our FLIR A Series Test, the cameras' biggest drawback was their lack of face detection, requiring manual adjustment when screening each subject.

Now, FLIR has released Screen-EST, "efficient, accurate desktop software for performing skin temperature screenings in high-traffic areas", but how well does this software work?

IPVM Image

We tested Screen-EST with a FLIR E95 handheld camera, examining:

  • How does Screen-EST's face detection measurement compare to manual adjustment?
  • How do glasses, hats, and masks impact measurement?
  • Does screening work on the move?
  • Which cameras integrate with Screen-EST?
