VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer Review & Giveaway


  So far I have been lucky and Evan has not been sick yet.  I am hoping that streak continues and he stays just as healthy.  I am also pretty lucky with Jayden because he has only been sick a handful of times himself.  But when either of them do get sick I am happy to have the VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer.
The Veratemp®
     The VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer instantly and accurately takes a temperature without even touching.  That means you can take your child's temperature while they sleep and not disturb them.  The VeraTemp can also be used to get the temperature of a surface or room.  It can be used to check the water in the tub or the baby food in the container.  It decreases the chance of transferring germs since it is non contact and does not touch the individuals skin.  The VeraTemp does not require the use of probe covers.  It has a backlight and easy to read display.  It can be used in the dark while you sneak in your child's room to check on them while sick.  It has a built in memory and records up to 32 readings.  With the Auto-Off feature it saves on battery life.


     Each VeraTemp undergoes an extensive black body accuracy testing.  They are each put through a rigorous accuracy and calibration process.  Every single thermometer is tested for proper calibration a minimum of 15 times.



     I love how easy it is to use.  I can take Evan or Jayden's temperature while they sleep in seconds.  Jayden loves to check his own temperature with it as well as ours.  And in addition to the exact temperature being displayed it also has a back light color to indicate if its just right or too hot.  So if your child has a temperature of 101 then it will display 101 and the back light would be red.  If the temperature is normal then it will stay green.

  2. I would love to win because with this thermometer, i could check anyone in the family's temp, without having to clean the thermometer. I currently use a rectal thermometer for my toddler, and a separate oral thermometer for everyone else.

  3. Every one of their thermometers is tested for proper calibration no less than fifteen times before its packaged and shipped to our customers.

    The memory button to retrieve the last 32 reading is beneficial when you're on the phone with the doctor!

  9. I would love to win because my 14yr old has cerebral palsy. Taking his temperature a few times a day is part of getting his vitals by his nurses. This would make it so much easier. They currently have to put the thermometer in his armpit.

  64. There are lots of benefits that we can obtain from using non-contact thermometers, one is that we can take our loved one temperature without disturbing their deep slumber. Another thing that we can benefit from such thermometer is, we can save our pass readings for us to able to record and to evaluate whether the fever that occurs is serious or not that much.
