March 02, 2021 - Owners Developers & Managers

Manhattan, NY Helmsley Spear, LLC has installed Vendmost Thermascanner readers in two of its leased and managed properties in FiDi, 48 Wall St. and 83 Maiden Ln.

The Vendmost Thermascanner Reader, provided by Accelerated Technologies Holding Corp. (ATHC), through an exclusive distribution agreement, is a temperature sensing monitor with face recognition, intended to ensure the safety of the building’s tenants and visitors by providing them with an accurate recording of temperature measurement through an integrated system with building management systems such as turnstile access points of entry. The device avoids infection from exposed employees that could result from manual temperature checks. With its smart AI technology, the Vendmost Thermascanner scans five points of the face for a facial recognition system with a high success rate for more accurate contact tracing.
