Are contactless IR thermometers accurate; and worth the money?
I'm looking to purchase a contactless thermometer for measuring body temperatures. After reading reviews on Amazon and a few other websites, I'm not confident if these thermometers are accurate. The reviews don't give me any confidence to make the purchase.
I'm curious to know if anyone's used them and how was your experience with the readings?
For some reason my reply does not get posted. I had given three links.
The ear drum (tympanic membrane) accurately reflects true body temperature. Non-contact IR aural canal thermometers are quite accurate.
However they should be maintained properly.
