FLIR System announced today the 'FLIR ONE' -- the first thermal camera case for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s. The thermal imaging device allows for users to display heat signature of a environmental sources including animals and live humans up to 100 feet away.

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.

Best use is looking for hot wiring & potential fire risk due to bad connections on power boards, wiring & power points.

i'm definitely buying one. the price is right. flir is usually super expensive. i don't need one that has a super range. looks like it just snaps to the bottom and that you can use your existing "thin" case. i'm definitely buying. hmm for home heating/cooling, look for leaks. for home security, seeing people. for outdoors, seeing night animals. search and rescue, lost kids/pets. can use on a date. see if she is hot and bothered under the table. then you can decide if you need to cut the date short or continue.

People already have cases and such on their phones that they like. No one is gonna want to keep switching their protective covering all thine to put this on and use it. It's just not practical. Even for a person that would have a use for it.
