Potential customers include airports, long term care facilities, hospitals, educational institutions, malls, and corporate buildings

Internet of Things Inc (CVE:ITT) (OTCMKTS:INOTF) announced Tuesday it has launched the pre-sales program for ThermalPass, its mass fever detection system. 

The device accurately detects human body temperatures at a distance as one way to help mitigate the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).

The company said the ramp-up in sales and marketing comes on the heels of extensive testing that confirmed the device's efficacy and functionality.

ITT also said its move to commercialize coincides with high demand for ThermalPass, as more than one hundred unsolicited inquiries were received by the company over the last three weeks. 

"We are pleased but not surprised by the immense international interest ThermalPass has already garnered," said CEO Michael Lende in a statement. "Corporations, organizations and governments are looking to provide an added layer of safety to limit the spread of contagions and we have developed a superior product for this application.”

Lende said potential customers include airports, long term care facilities, hospitals, educational institutions, malls, corporate buildings, and other venues where people congregate. 

“Our first purchase order and payment were booked last week, and the groundwork has been laid for an initial production run of one-thousand units. Deliveries are anticipated to commence in late July," he added.

The device instantly screens for higher-than-normal body temperatures with an accuracy of 0.36 degrees Fahrenheit, thus identifying possible carriers of the coronavirus. It takes 20 temperature readings per second.

Unlike traditional thermal cameras, ThermalPass relies on medical-grade sensors to detect an object's infrared energy from a distance. The AI system allows for rapid scanning of individuals as they pass through the device — without having to slow down — and quietly notify security personnel of anyone with a higher-than-normal temperature.

ThermalPass also has another distinctive advantage over camera-based solutions -- the touchless system does not recognize a person's identity, thus preserving anonymity.

The global thermal scanner market size is estimated to grow from US$4.1 billion in 2020 to US$6.7 billion by 2025. The increasing adoption of thermal temperature scanners at airports for the screening of people is one of the key factors fueling this market's growth. Notably, the Canadian federal government recently mandated the temperature screening.
