VPR Brands, LP, a globally renowned edge innovation and technology products company, has announced the launch of its fully automated infrared body temperature screening device, dubbed VPR Verified system.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued guidance expanding the use of tele-thermographic systems for triage use during the ongoing public health crisis owing to the COVID-19 pandemic spread.

The FDA says that tele-thermographic systems can be deployed to use for initial triage at high-traffic areas

Because fever is a common symptom of the COVID-19 virus, the FDA says that tele-thermographic systems, which convert infrared radiation into body temperature measurement, can be deployed to use for initial triage at high-traffic areas, such as airports, businesses, warehouses and factories, as well as in settings where thermometers may be in short supply.

With the gradual easing of public lockdown measures and a return to business operations, the VPR Verified system helps businesses, institutions, public transportation and venue operators detect and reduce the potential spread of unknown viruses among employees, guests and visitors.

Contactless thermal temperature screening

Combining contactless thermal temperature screening sensors with biometric facial recognition software, the VPR Verified system offers a level of public access safety and accuracy that exceeds human-error prone processes.

The temperature check is performed in just under a second, enabling processing of hundreds of people per hour. Single or multiple kiosks can be connected to automatic doors, turnstiles, locks or barriers for access control after testing customers and employees.

VPR Verified system

"Our new VPR Verified system is light years ahead of the alternative handheld devices currently available on the market. First of all, the VPR Verified system is not a handheld device, it’s touchless and in the current environment that is key. Any establishment with more than a hand full of people will benefit from the device’s set it and forget it simple to use features," said Kevin Frija, Chief Executive Officer of VPR Brands LP.

Kevin further stated, "Anyone who wants to best manage temperature checking of people will love this product and so will their customers and staff. The VPR Verified system actually makes compliance cool!"

The system’s facial recognition software is motion sensor activated and quickly scans each person as they pass in front of the monitor. The VPR Verified system immediately displays the temperature of the scanned person. It shows a green pass in case of normal body temperature or a red fail in case of high body temperature.

Cost-saving, efficient thermal screening system

The VPR Verified system helps eliminate costs on having a dedicated temperature screener and gives anyone entering an office or business facility a visible reminder that they are taking all the necessary precautions to protect their health and safety. The system is perfect for restaurants, gyms, offices, schools, residential and office buildings, retail stores and other establishments.

"As the country gets back to business operations, I think employee and customer safety will be the most important measure in how we transact and interact in the future. This device provides automation in enforcing key safety measures as normal temperature, facial covering, and individual entrant verification,” said Dan Hoff, Chief Operations Officer (COO) at VPR Brands LP.

Data tracking and robust functionality

Dan adds, “It also has robust functionality, alerts, and data tracking as added features. We have used the Verified Personnel Recognition system in our company for 30 days prior to launching and have been impressed with is consistency, convenience, and performance as a safety management tool."

The Growing Popularity Of Personal Safety Apps
The Growing Popularity Of Personal Safety Apps

The past year has elevated consumer awareness about personal safety, from COVID-19 issues to social unrest, making safety top-of-mind and the need for personal safety solutions, even more prevalent. In addition, consumers spent more time at home, as schools closed, events were canceled and remote work increased. This prompted two major shifts that, in my opinion, most significantly opened the need for and raised the popularity of mobile safety solutions. Demand for grocery and food delivery apps surged Rise in use of app-based delivery services During the past 18 months, the use of app-based delivery services has skyrocketed During the past 18 months, the use of app-based delivery services has skyrocketed. With more use comes more interactions among strangers in homes and businesses, and while the majority of these moments are completely safe and convenient, incidents are happening, ranging from uncomfortable situations to physical assaults.   And, with more delivery drivers on the road, there are going to be more accidents among gig-economy workers. Based on recent estimates, food and grocery delivery are expected to remain popular, even as we get back to normal life. High popularity of mobile security apps and wearables With more work shifting from stationary locations to working on-the-go, mobile security apps or wearables can be a lifeline in all sorts of situations. It’s important for these mobile safety products to be comprehensive, dynamic and designed to address the full range of people’s safety and security needs, from providing simple human reassurance to dispatching emergency help. Domestic violence cases increased According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, domestic violence rose as a result of many victims being stuck at home with their abusers, while sheltering in place and working from home. Mobile safety apps, such as ADT’s SoSecure U.S. Attorneys General and other state-elected officials have endorsed mobile safety apps, like SoSecure by ADT These situations necessitate the need for discreet ways for victims to call for help. U.S. Attorneys General and other state-elected officials have endorsed mobile safety apps, like SoSecure by ADT, as a tool to help victims of domestic abuse, safely call for help, without alerting their abuser. Over the past year, the mobile safety app market has seen tremendous innovation, including more user-friendly ways to make SOS calls. Today, within a single app, a person can summon help hands-free, by saying a secret phrase, by text or by swiping a button. Extension of mobile safety into wearable devices And, users can connect with people trained to help in unsettling situations over video, which can be an effective deterrent and provide video evidence. We’ve also seen the extension of mobile safety into wearable devices, in order to make these devices more discreet and usable. There will always be some safety risks in our lives. However, the good news is there’s no need to live in a constant state of fear. The easiest, most direct way to be prepared and ready to ‘fight back’ is by having a personal safety tool in your pocket, a mobile safety app that is there, when you need it most.
