Squadle has created the Squadle Sense Thermal Scanner to help restaurants, convenience stores and food retailers screen employee and guest health as they reopen after the COVID-19 shutdown.

The scanner combines contactless devices, mobile apps and web analytics to help employees and guests can safely self-screen and comply with regulatory requirements

It is a wall- or stand-mounted sensor that uses Squadle’s patented ZeroTouch measurement technology and works both online and offline. Employees can sign in with an app or keycard, then stand in front of the wall-mounted sensor for a scan that takes seconds. Above-normal temperatures will trigger a manager alert and the need to take action. The product can also be configured for guests, triggering helpful tasks when guests come on premise. The durable, rugged and compact hardware was designed to withstand the pressure and traffic for any restaurant or retail environment.

Self-check apps are available for both restaurant employees and operators. Employees can open the app on a separate device before they step in front of the temperature scanner to answer a set of quick screening questions that will determine if they are in compliance with local health requirements. The app can be customized for screening questions from Health Canada or other relevant organizations. It is HIPAA, GDPR and CCPA compliant.


The administrator’s app provides visibility across all employee results and includes action prompts whenever a potentially ill person is identified, so they can quickly take action and prevent at-risk individuals from entering the premises.

Squadle Checklists Integration ensures every employee is being scanned for each shift, and seamlessly integrates Thermal Scanner results into a restaurant’s existing Squadle Checklists system. Using a process that managers are already familiar with, Squadle Sense triggers quick and timely corrective actions for both employees and guests, requiring manager sign-off.

The Squadle Sense Thermal Scanner is available for pre-orders and shipments to early customers start in fall 2020. The package includes thermal scanning technology, 24/7 tech support and a hardware warranty.
