TVT Temperature Measurement Terminal Tested

By: Derek Ward, Published on Jul 23, 2020

While Dahua and Hikvision get the most attention for China temp products, their domestic competitors such as Shenzhen TVT are rolling out offerings that are being relabelled by various companies such as Avycon, Invid and TVT. How well do they work?

IPVM Image

We tested the TVT TD-E2128-TM, examining:

  • How often did it miss elevated temperatures?
  • How accurate are measurements vs IR thermometer?
  • Can it measure taller and shorter people?
  • What environmental factors impact performance?
  • How well does it measure with hats and hair covering the forehead?
  • How well does mask detection work?
