When COVID-19 hit the United States, most casinos closed to help with social distancing and to keep people safe. As the country begins to reopen, operators are doing everything they can to make their employees and patrons feel safe. Checking temperatures has become more and more important as it may help mitigate the spread of the virus by detecting people who have elevated temperatures.
Ute Mountain Casino Resort has decided to use eConnect’s eClear thermal temperature solution to ensure the safety of their patrons and employees. eClear is a thermal imaging device that can read temperatures in a contact-free, self-serve manner quickly and effortlessly.
“The power of eClear is in its ability to do a quick temperature reading using thermal imaging, said Rick Scheer, General Manager of Ute Mountain Casino. “We can keep everyone safe quite easily and with minimal hassle.”
With this solution, eConnect continues to lead the hospitality industry by leveraging its facial recognition offering to help further facilitate touchless authentication. eClear is light and portable, can be placed at guest or employee entrances and, if desired, can be permanently mounted.
“We are excited about growing our relationship with Ute Mountain,” said Henry Valentino, CEO of eConnect. “I have complete confidence that our solutions will bring safety and peace of mind to their customers and employees. We are proud to be a partner of Ute Mountain Casino and we look forward to helping them achieve their goals as they reopen.”
In addition to the basics of preventing the spread of disease by automatically checking temperatures, the facial recognition component offers many benefits, such as a real-time aggregate count of all entrances and exits while simultaneously recognizing and alerting about valuable customers or banned customers, even if they are wearing face masks. When placed at employee entrances, eClear can be used as a hands-free time clock.
