- Connecting to VeriScan Plus
The IRT1 uses facial detection technology to automatically recognize when a visitor stands in front of the device.
It can detect whether a mask is present and read a visitor's temperature from up to 2 feet away.
VeriScan Plus can associate a recorded temperature and a picture of the visitor's face an ID scan.
Compatible with the following versions of VeriScan:
- VeriScan Plus for Windows
- VeriScan Online Enterprise (Windows Only)
Have your visitor stand in front of the IRT1 and use the prompts to take a temperature reading.
Then scan their ID and VeriScan will automatically populate the temperature into the Visit Comments.
To enable temperature readings on the IRT1, you may need to enable it in the settings first.
1. On the IRT1, press the Home icon to open the main menu.
2. Then navigate to System > Temperature Measurement and select "Yes"
3. Also, navigate to System > Stranger Temperature Management and select "Yes"
There are two modes of operation for the IRT1 to connect to VeriScan Plus: Internet Mode and Local Mode.
These refer to the location in which the data is stored, whether it be on the device itself or on the PC it's connecting to.
In Local Mode, the data is stored locally on the IRT1 and VeriScan Plus must poll the device for new data.
The local mode only allows you to pull the temperature information from the IRT1, no picture support.
This can be done automatically at the time of the scan, or manually with the press of a button.
In Internet Mode, the data is stored on a virtual server created by the VeriScan Plus software.
The Internet Mode allows both pictures and temperature readings to be pulled from the IRT1.
The data is instantly transferred to the PC and will appear in the profile as soon as an ID is scanned.
The following section outlines router and network configrations that must be performed by the end-user.
Router-level and Windows-level firewall configuration may be required to connect the IRT1 to your Windows PC.
While DHCP Reservation is recommended, it is not required for the IRT1 and VeriScan Plus integration.
IDScan.net is not responsible for the setup or maintenance of network-level configurations.
DHCP Reservation (optional/recommended)
It is recommended to set a static local IP for both the IRT1 and the PC running VeriScan.
This ensures that the local address of each device does not change, and you'll only need to configure them once.
DHCP is a setting on your network's router and will vary from device to device.
To configure this setting yourself, you should refer to the setup manual for your specific router.
Connecting to VeriScan Plus
You must configure settings on the IRT1 and in the VeriScan Plus software for the integration to work.
It requires that both devices be connected to the same local network via ethernet or WiFi.
The ethernet adapter is included in the IRT1 box and is integrated into the optional stand.
To the top right of the face-scanning screen, you can see connection status icons.
The icons will turn white if a connection is made, turn grey if not connected, and disappear if disabled.
These indicators will help you to understand at a glance how your device is configured.

Step 1 - Local Mode
Local mode leaves the database of face scans and temperature readings on the IRT1 itself.
VeriScan will then poll the IRT1 at the time of each scan to collect the temperature information.
Face images will not be transferred from the IRT1 in local mode. To capture images as well, switcch to internet mode after you have configured the device for local mode.
1. On the IRT1, press the Home icon to open the main menu.
2. Set the following values for each setting:
|Comm > Port No||5005|
|Comm > Mode||Local|
3. Then navigate to Comm > Ethernet > DHCP and select Yes.
Note the address listed under Comm > Ethernet > IP Address and note the IP Address of the IRT1.
4. You will need to input the IP Address into the Device IP setting in VeriScan Desktop later.
Now that the IRT1 is configured for Local Mode, you can configure VeriScan Plus to communicate with it.
5. In the VeriScan Desktop software, navigate to Scanners/Images > Temperature Scanner
6. Set the following values for each setting:
7. Press the Save and Close button and your IRT1 will be linked to VeriScan Plus.
Step 2 - Internet Mode (optional)
Internet mode creates a virtual server on your PC running VeriScan Plus.
This connection requires you to know the IP address of your PC on your local network.
This mode allows you to pull the temperature information and face image from the IRT1.
1. To find your PC's local IP address, you can use the Command Prompt or PowerShell.
2. Open a command-line window and type the following command:
3. Find the output line that reads IPv4 Address and locate the local IP address for your PC.
4. On the IRT1, press the Home icon to open the main menu.
5. Set the following values for each setting:
|Comm > Mode||Internet|
|Server > Server||192.168.xxx.xxx (your PC's IPv4 address)|
|Server > Server Port||12389|
|Server > Response Time||4|
6. Now that the IRT1 is configured properly, you can configure VeriScan to communicate with it.
7. In the VeriScan Desktop software, navigate to Scanners/Images > Temperature Scanner
8. Set the following values for each setting:
9. Press the Save and Close button and your IRT1 will be linked to VeriScan Plus.
10. In VeriScan Plus, navigate to Scanners/Images > Save Face Image To...
11. Set the location you would like the IRT1 to save the picture of the face with the dropdown menu.
You can tell the link is established by checking the icons on the IRT1 Home Screen.
