Helmsley Spear Leads in Health and Safety with Installation of the Vendmost Thermascanner Readers In Two FiDi Properties


Helmsley Spear, LLC, America’s oldest continuously operating real estate firm that was founded in 1866, is pleased to announce that the firm has installed Vendmost Thermascanner readers in two of its leased and managed properties in FiDi, 48 Wall Street and 83 Maiden Lane.

The Vendmost Thermascanner Reader, provided by Accelerated Technologies Holding Corporation (OTC Markets “ATHC”), through an exclusive distribution agreement, is a temperature sensing monitor with face recognition, intended to ensure the safety of the building’s tenants and visitors by providing them with an accurate recording of temperature measurement through an integrated system with building management systems such as turnstile access points of entry. The device avoids infection from exposed employees that could result from manual temperature checks. With its smart AI technology, the Vendmost Thermascanner scans five points of the face for a facial recognition system with a high success rate for more accurate contact tracing. The installation was announced by Kent M. Swig, President of Helmsley Spear.

“We are pleased to install this new technology which ensures the safety of our tenants and visitors at 48 Wall Street and 83 Maiden Lane. This was a very important project to us at Helmsley Spear, and we are proud to be a leader in the industry for health, safety, and ease of access,” said Kent M. Swig.
