We live in a bizarre time when face coverings and standing six feet away from each other have become the norm. Another thing you might have to do on a daily basis — especially if you’re a small business owner — is take people’s temperature. What’s the fastest, easiest and safest way to do it?
Enter the Berrcom Infrared Thermometer, a contact-free infrared forehead thermometer that’s on sale for just $27, or $63 off at Amazon. That’s a whopping 70 percent savings!
Usually going for $90, this infrared thermometer doesn’t have to be placed under the tongue, or in other...parts of the body, but rather near the forehead. It’ll even work from about two inches away.
“I like this gizmo. It works reliably,” wrote a five-star reviewer. “Comes ready to read forehead temp (‘body’ mode) and displays in Fahrenheit, so I did not have to re-make any settings. It’s lightweight and comfortable to hold. It reads the body temp in just a second and no contact necessary to get a reading.”
Never used an infrared thermometer before? It’s easy. Just point it within two inches of a forehead, press the scan trigger and you’ll get a temperature reading in seconds. The handy display shows Fahrenheit or Celsius — for all you Metric System fans out there. It’ll even turn off automatically when not in use.
“Reliable and easy to use,” continued the reviewer. “Turns itself off in about 20 seconds, so it never wastes battery power. The momentary beep (not too loud) that sounds when the reading is accomplished can be turned off, so if you have to look in on a sleeping child or infant to check for fever, there’s no noise to disturb. Nice option.”
At 70 percent off, this Berrcom Infrared Thermometer is an effortless way to take someone’s temperature contact-free. It’s safe and hygienic—and great for people of all ages from babies to seniors. This thermometer can also work on objects and liquids to check if something is too hot or too cold.
“This is probably the best thermometer we have owned,” shared another satisfied shopper.
