Frequently Asked Questions.

Let the thermometer and individual being measured acclimate to the temperature of the room in which the measurement will be taken. 

The thermometer needs to acclimate to the room temperature for 10 minutes before taking a measurement. 

The individual being measured should be indoors for 30 minutes before taking a measurement. External temperature can impact skin temperature. 

Ensure that the individual’s forehead is prepared for measurement.

Wipe away any sweat with a dry cloth. Sweat can cool skin resulting in a false reading. 

Ensure that the forehead is clean. If you clean the forehead, wait 10 minutes before taking a measurement.

This will occur if the ambient temperature is not within the allowed operating range (50 – 104 °F or 10 – 40 °C.)  In order to resolve this, we would recommend you allow the thermometer to remain for 30 minutes in a room where the temperature is between 50 and 104 °F or 10 and 40 °C.

A flashing display indicates a system error. We suggest waiting 1 minute until the thermometer turns off by itself and then turns on again. If the problem persists, reset the thermometer by removing the batteries momentarily.
