temperature sensor for arduino compatible

Dear all,

Is there any sensor that can identify the body temperature of a human or animal for some distance? please help...

Thank you.

PIR sensors (cheap) , or IR image sensors (expensive).

Distinguishing people from other warm blooded animals will require image processing as the body surface temperatures are too similar.

I think OP wants the temperature of the object, not sense movement.

Enter "IR temp sensor" or "contactless temperature sensor" or "MLX90614" in the search box on top of this page. Or look for that on ebay. Leo..
