Uniview Wrist Temperature Reader Tested

By Ethan Ace and Derek Ward, Published Jul 02, 2020, 09:20am EDT

Uniview is promoting measuring wrist temperatures whereas most others are just offering forehead or inner canthus measurements. But how well does wrist work?

IPVM Image

IPVM bought and tested Uniview's 213H-BTS1 kiosk and wrist measurement module to see how well it performs.

In this note, we report our results of the Uniview OET-213H-BTS1, examining:

  • How accurate is wrist temperature measurement?
  • How do wrist and forehead measurements compare?
  • Does wrist distance to the reader affect temperature measurements?
  • How precise does a user need to be to get a wrist measurement?
  • What impact do long sleeves or wrist accessories have on temperature measurement?
  • What calibration or offset settings can users configure?
  • How versatile is the wrist reader for installation?
  • How easy or hard is it to spoof temperature measurements?
  • What does the US FDA have to say about wrist temperature measurements?
