The client required an Android Application that allow will them to measure employees temperature and print labels for them so the employees can be safely admitted to their warehouses and secure facilities.

The key requirement was to be able to print a “PASS” label on a thermal printer if Instascan android devices determines the temperature below a certain threshold.


App Maisters developed the required Android Application that would silently run in the background on the Instascan device. The Application was integrated with the thermal Printer and was able to print the required label “PASS” with the timestamp. The application was able to catch a call and determine the values of Temperature, if the value of TEMP was below 99.6 F, it successfully executed the printable command and the Thermal printer was able to print the Label. In case the temperature was beyond the required threshold, it would simply not forward the printing command.
