Hi,

Thanks for working on that device, as UNIVIEW distributor in France we performed lot of test with medical thermometers to compare with the wrist solution... And decided to buy thousands of them.

IPVM Image

You can trust us or not, but we removed no result, the gap we have on 13 tests, is only 0.16°C, that is even better than contact less medical thermometers.

We totaly agree, there is a gap between forehead temp and wrist, but the gap still quite the same all the time. This is the reason why the alert temperarure is setup so low (at 37.3 in our case), that is roughly 1 degree below the alert for forehead mesurement.

As to 0.3°C gap that's the gap you should have between 2 mesurements on same person and same area, they made a wrong communicaton on it.

In addition I totaly agree with you on the mouting method, that is not easy to handle, and their official brackets is not usable for people above 175cms (cause you need to have face catched by camera while you take temp.). We have to do our own bracket on local market...

Regards

We are a UNV Integrator selling significant amount of wrist model.

“The wrist itself has potential to work reliably for temperature screening, but only at very close range, nearly touching the reader.”

Yes the range is close in this model but i wish you tested the newer version of the same model OET-213H-BTS1-BD.

I will request UNV to send you the this model.The terminal is the same only the module changes.

“Uniview's specified range is 1-4cm (~0.4-1.6"), though the reader produces measurements outside of this range, as well, an accuracy issue discussed below.”

This specification of 1-4cm is for the new model which I mentioned above. The one you tested is the one with 1-2.5cm.

“At distances of ~1-1.5" (Uniview's maximum specified range), measurements were 2-3°F lower than actual, with frequent and repeatable misses on elevated wrist temperature”

The wrist temp can be .2-.3 lower than forehead and less fluctuating due to external weather.But 2-3°F looks strange or a possible faulty module(what are the odds!)

Can you post test results comparing temperatures on the UNV system with distance of 1.5-2 cm and correct area of the wrist and the same person scanned using 3-4 different brands of normal forehead thermometer and post results ?

Also I would request you to take the temp of 5 people who came from hot sun(hope sunlight exposure on forehead can be Simulated) on their forehead and wrist and compare the results of variation. This is one of key benefits we tested .Specially in Middle East in current summer a person coming in from hot sun can show an elevated 2-3 degree Celsius on forehead when walking in sun and entering a building. Same person wrist if scanned doesn’t give such variations.

We have smart watches, smart phones, smart earbuds......

JUST PUT THE TECHNOLOGY into what we HAVE.

DO IT NOW. RIGHT NOW.

Stop making all these little crap manufacturing streams of BS hardware no one NEEDS. USE WHAT WE HAVE!!!!! No crap widgets, gadgets...JUST EFFING STOP. IDIOTS

Technology we have all been using for the last decade is right there.

Again, IDIOTS. I rather wear a cloth face mask to ward off the next comet that might come while covid is active.

John,

It would be great if you could implement a way to ignore all posts from a user, even if they are undisclosed. I really can't stand people who "yell in caps", use personal attacks, and unprofessional language "effing". I'm pretty sure #U3 is a repeat offender.

This might be a good way to make responses by passionate people more productive and respectful if they know their voices will be silenced by other members for responding like #U3

#4, I've talked to #3 about it twice already. I don't like to ban people or comments but if this cannot continue #3.

His underlying point about putting temperature measurement in existing devices is fine, his ad homenim attacks are not. #3, stop it.

Does IPVM plan on testing the new digital reader that UNV released for this device? The new reader has a PN of OEP-BTS1-BD-NB.

We have found that it makes a big difference to the reading distance coupled with the new sensor to detect if you are close enough.

#5, thanks. We do plan to test a newer version of the Uniview wrist temperature reader and will check with Uniview HQ on what model they say is the most accurate / 'best'. Thanks.

Hello UM #5,

If you haven't seen it already, we've tested the OEP-BTS1-BD-NB module in the following report.
