Worse: ZKTeco 8" Worse Temperature Results Than 5" Tested

By: Derek Ward, Published on Jun 16, 2020

While ZKTeco USA's CEO objected to IPVM's SpeedFace+ 5" test results, saying the 8" version "outperforms" the 5" version, new IPVM testing shows that the 8" has the same problems or worse as the 5" one measuring temperature.

We tested the ZKTeco SF1008+, answering:

  • How does it compare to the 5" ZKTeco SF1005-V+?
  • ZKTeco's accuracy compared to an IR thermometer.
  • What impact do height and distance have on temperature measurements?
  • Does the larger screen make it easier to the live and admin views?

Upcoming, we are releasing tests on Dahua and Hikvision's temperature tablets plus a shootout of Dahua, Hikvision, and ZKTeco.
