Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner Thermometer - Makes Taking a Child's Temperature Quick & Easy‏


Disclaimer: I received products for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own.



There's nothing worse than having a sick baby on your hands. There is also nothing worse than having a sick baby and wanting to take a temperature with an invasive thermometer. If your children are like me it can be tough. I hate having anything stuck in my ear. Even worse is having something stuck in your bum. I'm not old enough to keep a thermometer in my mouth so that is totally out of the question. It's flu season and also the kids are back in school. My brother has already been stuck at home for being sick. With a child in school its almost a guarantee that they'll bring something home and share it with the rest of the family. Luckily for me, mommy was sent the new updated Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner thermometer, great for parents who are caring for a sick child.


There are a few things that mommy always keep on hand. There has to be a thermometer, children's Tylenol or Motrin and Vicks VaporRub. My brother Mikael is the kid who if there's a virus going around, he's going to get it. No sooner said that done! Mommy was able to test out the new and upgraded Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner themometer when he was home sick from school with a temperature. One of the features that we just love about temporal artery thermometers is the fact that there are no probe covers required. There is also a protective cap to keep the sensor protected and clean. It comes with a 9 volt battery and is super easy to use.


This updated version of the original TemporalScanner™ comes with four ways to make it even easier to take a temperature:
  • A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room.
  • Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child.
  • Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression.
  • Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner is an infrared thermometer which captures temperature by scanning the heat which is emitted from the forehead, via the temporal artery. Temporal artery thermometry is among the most accurate and convenient methods to take a sick child’s temperature.

Now I did tell you that it was easy to use. Here are the steps:
  1. Remove the protective cap
  2. Hold the thermometer so that thumb or index finger is positioned over the SCAN button (DO NOT depress until step four).
  3. Place the probe flush (flat) on the center of the forehead.
  4. Press and hold the SCAN button.
  5. Lightly slide thermometer either left or right from the center of forehead to the hairline, keeping the sensor flat and in contact with the skin for the entire scan (2-3 seconds). You will hear a beeping and a red light will flash during the scan. This is normal, indicating that a measurement is taking place. 
  6. Release the SCAN button and remove the thermometer from head once you reach hairline.
  7. Read the temperature on display. 

As you can see my brother Mikael had a temperature and thanks to the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner, mommy was able to get that temperature without making him feel even more miserable. The thermometer shuts off automatically after 30 seconds preserving battery life. It also keeps track of your last 8 temperature reading making it perfect for when having to relate it to your medical provider.

This is the perfect gift for new moms and even experienced moms alike. It's why it gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner is sold at major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s at a suggested retail price of $49.99.

  1. I always hated using a regular thermometer. Jaiden wasn't very good at keeping them in his mouth and it became frustrating. Under the arm wasn't working and no one like to stick things in their childs bum. I have one similar to this I love it. Makes it so much easier. Now i really like this one because it tracks your last 8 temperatures! Ours only does the last one. I think I am gonna have to look into this one! Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. I love this thermometer, it's so gentle. I remember how my mom used to take my temperature, I swore I would never do that to my kids so I bought one of those expensive ear ones that need the plastic cups, this looks a lot better than that though.

  3. I hate taking temps. My kiddo just doesn't hold still long enough for an accurate reading. I've been looking for a forehead or eat thermometer but they are pretty spendy.

  4. This would be so handy we use the old type and need to upgrade I will check this out for sure

  5. I am always struggling to find a thermometer like this. I've ordered so many brands and have had to return them. I need to check this one out. I hate having to do the armpit temp for my baby.

  6. I have this and I LOVE it. Sick kids don't want to be poked and prodded and this thermometer makes it so much easier to get their temp!

  7. This sounds like great product! My little one is also too young to hold a thermometer in his mouth and I refuse to stick anything in his bum. I'm sure he wouldn't allow me to do that anyway if I tried. I have tried taking his temp under his armpit but he squirms around too much and won't sit still. I will definitely have to look into this. :-)

  8. If I have just seen that product I would have had no idea it was a thermometer how futuristic does it look! x

  9. We have that thermometer - an older version but it is our favorite still and works great (despite many drops!). We start our treatment with essential oils and then if we can not get it go to traditional medicines.

  10. Wow! This is even better than the ear thermometer! I love that technology is even helping us be less miserable when we're sick!

  12. I love this! I don't have children at home but I have something called Felty's Syndrome and I have to take my temp everyday. This would come in so handy in my house!

  13. This looks great! I've tried so many theremometers and haven't found one that is correct or that works properly! I will check this out!

  14. Also to answer the question I give them lots of cuddles, fluids and let them relax!

  15. It's heartbreaking when they are sick. So my priority is first getting them comfortable with medication and lots of mommy pampering

  16. I love that technology has come so far and that it's so much easier to take kids' temperature now.

  17. I've never heard of this thermometer before. It would have been so handy when my kids were babies!

  18. Thermometers sure have come a long ways. I remember as a kid having to sit for 5 minutes while mom took our temperature with an old mercury one.

  19. I just used mine this morning! It is a life saver!

  22. This is such a convenient way to take a child's temperature. I remember how it was when I was a kid and my parents had old fashioned thermometers.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I just bought this on Sunday! We were at Costco and I saw it and although I don't have any little kids anymore, I knew I wanted it. There have been too many times in the past years when one of us has not felt well and we haven't had a thermometer. My husband and I both tried this out when we got home and we love how easy it is.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've always wondered how accurate these were. I still use the one for under your tongue :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. My niece hates anything in her ear as well so so her mother got her one of these and it works really great and is just as accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really need this, my son is difficult with thermometers. He's 9 and FINALLY understands that the one that goes under your tongue isn't going to hurt. This would make my life so much easier.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is a genius idea! Kids hate being prodded and poked, especially when ill, so this device makes taking their temperature simple and quick xx

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love this new temp gadget. This will help Mom and family life easy when our members get sick.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This looks like a great way to get my toddler's temp! He is so fussy other methods are difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am amazed at the advances that are being made these days. I will have to add one of these thermometers to my household.

    ReplyDelete
  31. We have an ear thermometer, which was much easier to use. I think it is amazing how quickly these forehead thermometers capture their temps!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm happy to see the review. I have four kids and have never had one of these. I think it would be nicer than the oral one that's hard to keep in their mouths until it beeps.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Last year I got a Braun forhead thermometer from Klout. Funny thing, we still haven't used it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I need one of these. I don't take my kids' temps much when they're sick because they hate most kinds of thermometers.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This reminded me of when my son was little and I used to have SUCH a hard time taking his temperature. The only way I could get the temperature was in the bum and omg I hated doing it just has much has he hated it. One of the feature that is appealing about this thermometer is the fact that it lets you track 8 previous temperature readings.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This sounds like a must-have for parents! I love that it retains the last 8 temps .... impressive.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I give them lots of love and hugs. I try to use natural stuff like essential oils

    ReplyDelete
  38. This sounds like a great "upgrade" to the traditional one. I would have loved something like this! The tracking is AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, I've never heard about this kind of thermometer, but it sounds an amazing product to me. Well, I believe that every parent must have a non-invasive thermometer and this ones really great.

  40. We are in the market for a new thermometer! My son was playing around with the one we have it only reads Celsius now. I can't figure out how to change it back! With a little couch time, lots of liquids and love! That's how we fix our colds and yuckies!
