Ident-A-Kid Introduces New Contactless Temperature Reading Solution to Help Minimize COVID-19 Spread in Schools This Upcoming Year

Temp Chek™ from Ident-A-Kid can Help Prevent Ill Individuals From Entering Schools.

"...Temp Chek™ can be used anywhere around campus or on busses to support all wellness screening practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19," stated Rick Hagan, CEO of Ident-A-Kid.

    ST. PETERSBURG, FL, August 12, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ident-A-Kid, a company specializing in providing school visitor management systems, has released a new solution that allows schools to quickly and accurately read an individual's temperature before entering a school campus. Temp Chek™ is an entirely contactless thermometer that scans a person's palm or forehead and displays their temperature on a screen. When a healthy temperature is recorded, Temp Chek™ shows green lights and emits no alarm. However, if an individual reads higher than 99.1 degrees, Temp Chek™ will display red lights and emit a beeping warning to alert staff to review the sign-in.

As schools across the country create plans for returning students and staff, many require temperature checks for everyone entering campus. Ident-A-Kid aims to provide school districts across the country an affordable, easy-to-use option that will meet this requirement. There are three mounting options for customers to choose from. The first option includes a floor sign to hold the Temp Chek™ reader and instructions on signing in. The second option consists of a small stand for placing Temp Chek™ on a countertop. The last option consists of a flexible clamp that allows schools to mount Temp Chek™ inside buses to record temperatures from students as they get on. Temp Chek™ is both FERPA and HIPPA compliant. It doesn't record or export any identifiable data from individuals that have their temperature read.

In addition to Temp Chek™, Ident-A-Kid also provides schools a software feature, called Remote-Links, to track student, staff, volunteer activities, and more remotely on any device while school buildings are closed. Remote-Links will also be used as a method for contactless entry for schools as they reopen. Remote-Links is free to all Ident-A-Kid customers, regardless of their licensing level. Ident-A-Kid provides both of these solutions to aid schools in reopening at the beginning of the school year and supporting hybrid model instruction.

"We are excited to further add safety measures for schools by releasing Temp Chek™ for contactless temperature screenings that can be logged within iVisitor Management. Temp Chek™ can be used anywhere around campus or on busses to support all wellness screening practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19," stated Rick Hagan, CEO of Ident-A-Kid.

Schools and districts interested in implementing Temp Chek™ for contactless temperature screenings can contact Ident-A-Kid for more information. To learn more, call 800-890-1000, email [email protected] or visit
