Motorola’s Smart Non-Contact Thermometer is great to read the temperature of a baby without interrupting them. Part of Motorola’s Smart Nursey Range, it allows you to read temperatures via the screen directly, as well as see them and store them via the app.

Issues with a Non-Contact Thermometer

While Non-Contact Thermometers give you the easiest possible way to read a baby’s or an adult’s temperature, they are not reliably accurate. The temperature is normally measured using infrared scanning of the subject’s forehead. However, in the case the subject has a temperature, there is the chance that they may be sweating. As sweat evaporates, it cools down the skin temperature. This means that the temperature of the skin may not be representative of the body temperature.

However, there are other uses. Like any other infra-red based thermometer, you can use this to scan other objects. In case of a baby, the all important ‘bottle temperature’ is probably the best use you can make use of such thermometers.

How to measure bottle temperature using Motorola’s Thermometer

If you try and measure the bottle temperature using the regular temperature mode, you will find that the thermometer will often give you an error saying the reading is too hot. This is because by default it is set to only read the temperature of a human, and no other objects.

However, Motorola has made available the ability to measure bottle temperatures as well as the temperature of other objects which fall outside the human temperature range. This means that you can the thermometer to measure the temperature of pretty much anything. I have tried it below 20 degrees and up to 80 degrees, giving you a very wide range of temperature measurements.

So, in order to enable it, all you need to do is to press both the buttons together. Don’t press and hold them. Don’t press too long. A simple ‘click on both together’ is all you need.

When you do, you will the symbol on the screen change from that of a baby/human head to a bottle. Now you can measure any temperature you want.

There is a certain knack to it though, but with a bit of practice, you will find it comes quite easy.

Wait a minute – what about baby/adult temperature?

For those, I would refer you to an in-ear thermometer. Afterall, that is what the doctor uses. They are more expensive, and definitely a faff if your child is prone to movement/irritation, but sadly they provide the safest and most accurate thermometer reading among everything else I tried.
