1. A method for obtaining accurate skin temperature measurements, the method comprising:
displaying, on a display, a video image of a temperature measurement subject captured by a camera;
displaying, on the display, at least one visual alignment cue sized and positioned on the display such that when a predetermined portion of the video image of the subject is aligned with the at least one visual alignment cue, the subject is located at a predetermined distance and orientation for accurate skin temperature measurement by a contactless temperature sensor;
analyzing the video image of the subject and detecting when the predetermined portion of the video image of the subject is aligned with the at visual alignment cue; and
triggering the contactless temperature sensor to record a skin temperature measurement of the subject when the predetermined portion of the video image of the subject is aligned with the at least one visual alignment cue.
