Temperature Screening From The Protection Bureau and ZKTeco Violate IEC Standards and FDA Correct Operation

By John Honovich and Joey Walter, Published Jun 22, 2020, 10:34am EDT (Info+)

ZKTeco and integrator The Protection Bureau are marketing an installation that violates IEC febrile screening standards, FDA correct operation, and ironically ZKTeco's own installation instructions.

This is a risk to public safety, as these medical devices are being used to screen and, per the video, lock out people the ZKTeco system determines to have a high temperature.

However, The Protection Bureau responded declaring that they "never refer to this device as a medical device" though this ZKTeco offering, per FDA definition, is a medical device.

I love how integrators and manufacturers saying "it's not a medical device" think that gives them a free pass to sell something with completely unrealistic expectations.

Another tier 1 (supposedly) integrator falls into the shadow of the valley of mid-use and mis-marketing of technology (and “mis-use” is the kindest of terms that crossed my mind).
