Vision+: Thermal scan

Vision+ uses the same facial recognition process as Vision but also includes a thermal scan. This thermal scan checks an employee's temperature each time they use the clock.


Vision+ includes a thermal scanner for checking an employee's temperature.

This thermal scan uses a default temperature threshold of 102° F. If the employee's temperature is above that threshold (not equal to), the punch process is interrupted, they are instructed to contact their manager, and their punch is not recorded. The thermal scan occurs every time an employee uses the clock, including when they clock out.



The Vision+ thermal module is not a medical device and is not intended for use in diagnosing disease or other conditions, or in the cure, mitigation, treatment, or disease prevention, and is not FDA-approved or cleared for such use.

The Vision+ thermal sensor, when properly installed and configured, quickly returns a reading of an individual’s skin surface temperature. A body temperature reading should be confirmed by a secondary evaluation method (e.g., an NCIT or clinical grade contact thermometer) and should not be solely or primarily relied upon to diagnose or identify a diagnosis of COVID-19 or any other disease.

Please note that it is the sole responsibility of any organization or employer that requires its employees to use the Vision+ device and features, such as the thermal module, to determine and comply with all applicable employee and health information protection laws and regulations and any other law or regulation that may apply to the use of the thermal modules or any other Vision+ function.


Temperature Threshold Settings

The Vision+ temperature threshold has a default setting of 102° F but can be adjusted to any temperature between 98.6° and 102° F.


To change the temperature threshold:

  1. Log into the timekeeping system.

  2. Access the Clock Status page from the Settings Menu.

  3. Choose a Vision+ clock by clicking the serial number.

  4. Locate Vision+ Temperature Threshold on the Clock Detail page and select Change/Disable.

  5. Enter the new threshold.

  6. Click Save Changes.

Temperature Threshold Settings

The temperature threshold can be adjusted in the timekeeping system

The new threshold is now applied. If you have multiple Vision+ clocks assigned to your timekeeping account, changing the threshold on one clock automatically applies it to all clocks; you do not need to set the threshold on each individual clock.


To disable the thermal scan entirely:

  1. Follow steps 1-4 for changing the temperature threshold.

  2. Check Disable Temperature Scanning.

  3. Click Save Changes.

This disables the thermal scan for all Vision+ clocks assigned to your timekeeping account.
