Santa Medical Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer Review

I have 2 daughters who are 4 and 7 and having a working, accurate thermometer in the the house is a must. I have several digital oral thermometer, a forehead thermometer and also an ear thermometer from my mom. The first takes time to get the result and it requires to be disinfected every use. The ear thermometer is more accurate and easy to use but requires a one-time disposable filter/cover for the ears probe which I sometimes I forget to buy and in the long run cost me. The forehead thermometer is better because I just swipe it on my daughters' foreheads but it takes a couple of seconds before it gives out a read-out. When I received the SantaMedical Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer, I was excited to try it. Before I head on over to my review, here is a quick product description from the company:

The Santa Medical non-contact infrared (IR) clinical thermometer provides a simple, expedient, and accurate way for initial fever screenings by taking the temperature of areas on the face such as the forehead or tear ducts. It obtains the body temperature reading with 0.3 degree accuracy in less than 1 second. The Santa Medical IR thermometer features an intuitive guidance system to secure positioning and confirm accurate readings.
I received the SantaMedical RY-230 Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer neatly packed in a box. It included the 2 AAA batteries, a nice gray pouch and the instruction manual. The thermometer is compact measuring 5.25 x 0.7 x 1.6 inches and weighs approximately 3.6 oz. It is compact, portable and lightweight so I can easily put it inside my bag.
 There is a button on the side which turns the beeping alarm on and off. The beeping alarm is a bit loud so I prefer to turn it off when I use this to take my daughters' temperature when they're sleeping.
The LCD Display has a back light so it's easier to see the read-out even when it's dark. The LED display is also big which is nice because I can read the display easily.
It is easy to use and I love that in just a second, it can take the temperature already. This is also great because I don't have to put the thermometer on my daughters' foreheads so they wouldn't be disturbed when I take their temperature when they're sleeping.
 It can recall previous readings so I would know if the temperature went up or down. I like the big lighted LCD screen for easier reading specially during night time. I also like that I can choose between Celsius and Fahrenheit. Another thing is that it beeps and back light will glint 4x when temperature goes over 38 Celsius.

This is an accurate and easy to use non-contact thermometer which gives a temperature reading in a second.
