EyeLock Announces the iTemp® Module, a Temperature Screening Tool for its nano iXT®


NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- EyeLock LLC, the leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, announced today an optional add-on module called iTemp® for its recently launched nano iXT® iris biometric reader. iTemp is a thermal sensor that reads a user's forehead temperature at the same time their irises and identities are being authenticated. With iTemp, there is no longer a need to move to a different device for a temperature check. The technology at the center of iTemp is the highly accurate and sought after, FLIR Lepton® LWIR sensor. This is the same technology that is present in many of the hand-held IR temperature measurement devices on the market today.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses around the world are moving away from touch-based fingerprint and hand-based biometrics systems. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has publicly stated that one of the most common symptoms of SARS, MERS and COVID-19 is fever. iTemp gives businesses an ultra-affordable and easily deployable tool to help them increase the safety of their workplace, while providing the highest biometric identity accuracy for access control. 

Jeff Carter, EyeLock's CEO, stated, "The iTemp module for the nano iXT equips companies with a highly accurate, reliable and user-friendly tool that helps them create the safest possible work and business environments for their employees and customers. Measuring an individual's temperature can be done decisively and with confidence to permit or deny access within a building because of the extreme accuracy of the new iTemp device. Ultimately, it delivers not only greater safety but also peace of mind for everyone."  

The nano iXT provides the technology framework to manage and control the iTemp thermal sensor. Setting the temperature threshold, displaying custom messaging during use, and denying the subject access if their temperature exceeds the threshold, are just some of the key features and capabilities, with more to come. The nano iXT, with its optional iTemp module, is the ideal biometric solution for today's world.
