The device features many different modes to adjust to level of expertise, allowing anyone from the average consumer to the trained professional use it. FLIR ONE also has its own battery source built-in the case that can power the device for two hours of continuous use and can even boost the iPhone 5 and 5s battery life up to 50 percent
As the first and only personal thermal imager for the consumer market under $350, FLIR ONE is compact, easy-to-use, compatible with the iPhone5 and 5s and fits on the phone like a protective case. Once mounted, the device displays a live thermal image of the world right on the phone’s screen, giving users unprecedented ability to “see” in an array of conditions, including complete darkness. Originally developed for military night vision, this game- changing technology has revolutionized modern law enforcement, search and rescue, security, and surveillance. Now, consumers can apply the power of FLIR ONE to home improvement, outdoor recreation, security, safety, and much more.
“For decades, we’ve seen the possibilities of thermal imaging redefine industries that require critical awareness and heightened perception,” said Andy teich, president and CEO of FLIR. “With FLIR ONE, we’re excited to extend this technology to everyday users to help them with home improvement, wildlife observation, safety, security, and to discover new ways to use thermal imaging.
FLIR ONE’s unique ability to detect and visualize heat, including minute differences in temperature, gives consumers an innovative and versatile new tool that can be applied in various contexts, including:
● Home improvement. DIY homeowners and contractors can use this device to spot relative temperature differences at doors and windows to optimize energy efficiency, or to locate wall studs and ceiling joists.
● Outdoor recreation. For birders and hunters, this device lets you observe wildlife, day or night, with a low intrusion level, while campers can use it to navigate in the dark, detect when the day’s catch is fully cooked, or make sure a campfire is out.
● Security and safety. this device can detect intruders in total darkness or help you find your way during a power outage.
FLIR plans a worldwide rollout of Spring 2014 for the FLIR ONE for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s device at a price point of $350.
