Why Temperature Check Kiosks are Important for Fitness Centers
Temperature check kiosks are a significant help in combatting the spread of COVID-19. They’re being used across the globe in airports, department stores, restaurants, outdoor events, and fitness centers – any space where there is some form of gathering. These kiosks, when combined with digital signage can help prevent people from entering premises if they show signs of a fever and therefore tackle the spread of the virus.
So how exactly do they work?
Quick and Reliable Scanning Technology
Temperature check kiosks allow businesses to scan and detect temperatures using infrared technology and facial recognition. Facial recognition allows the system to identify the forehead so an accurate temperature check can be made. These kiosks can also be used to help detect whether or not customers are wearing masks and prompt people to put one on if they’re not.
If a high temperature is detected, the screen can prompt the visitor to leave to help stop the potential spread of the virus and may recommend shielding or a test to confirm whether or not they have COVID-19.
Here at Zero-In, we offer a variety of temperature check kiosks solutions to help your fitness center stay compliant with any COVID-19 related regulations and requirements. They can be used for both guests and staff to ensure maximum safety and compliance with any local or state guidelines.
Temp check kiosks are available in sleek and modern designs that can integrate seamlessly with the gym’s décor. Kiosks are available in both countertop and freestanding versions, and come with a built-in Wi-Fi Connection and built-in music if you require it.
As with any digital signage product, everything you see on screen is on a fully customizable interface operated through the cloud, meaning that you can tailor these kiosks to adopt your branding, and roll out updates within seconds across the network.
Contactless Temperature Checking
One of the major factors causing the spread of COVID-19 is contact points. If everyone who tries to enter the gym touches the kiosk, the whole purpose of it would be fruitless. This is why Zero-In’s temperature check kiosks are fully contactless and allow temperature readings from a 2 ft distance from the screen.
Once a person is scanned, if everything is normal, they’ll be prompted to enter the premises or leave if they’re showing signs of a fever. This contactless technology also benefits staff as no one has to be standing at the door with a handheld temperature checker, potentially putting themselves at risk.
Analytics and Reporting
One of the major benefits of the kiosks is analytics and reporting. Each guest’s temperature check will be logged in a central system allowing gym owners to monitor visitor metrics and see if there has been an increase or decrease in those showing potential symptoms of the virus. Such metrics could be shared with local authorities to help monitor and mitigate the spread of the virus, especially if multiple fitness centers in a particular town/city utilize these kiosks.
Uses Beyond the Pandemic
In the future, when COVID no longer poses a threat, these kiosks will have the ability to serve other purposes too as part of your digital signage solutions. You may want to keep the temperature check solution in place, as a way for guests to monitor their overall health and wellness. Or the kiosks could be used for other marketing campaigns or as a way to sign people into the gym.
In short, temperature check kiosks are a great way to demonstrate to patrons that you’re doing everything in your power to ensure that your gym or fitness center is a safe place to visit.
