That's slick. I bought one of the FLIR-One units and like it a lot, but this looks like it might be even better. Smaller, lighter & usable on a lot more host phones.

Would be really nice if it interfaced with this...

http://www.inteliscopes.com/


If it did...

..you could have a Thermal Weapons Scope on your bedside gun..

..for the price of an Inteliscope Mount & the Seek Thermal add-on.

For the $$ invested..

..this is a really useful, very compact & cost effective thermal add-on!


Very compact also!

So far....so good!

More functionality & ease of use than I would have guessed.

Plans are to try it outdoors this weekend.

Here are my questions.

1. Can it run split screen, with regular camera?
2. Talk to me about screen shots.
3. Point it at some deer/people at 500 yards in the woods. Are they easy to spot?
4. Battery life...longer is better, how short is the battery life. Since it uses the USB port, there is no way to recharge while thermal is in use.

Yes

Stills & Video....both are easy to do.


3. Point it at some deer/people at 500 yards in the woods. Are they easy to spot?

Have not gotten outdoors with it yet....at my doorstep this evening & then went out to a late meal with the wife.
So far the recognition seems to be better on my indoors dog with "white hot" & "black hot"....but keeping in mind this is a low resolution, very lightweight & very inexpensive unit. I will likely get one or two more units....as this could be V-E-R-Y useful on a RPV or a UAV



4. Battery life...longer is better, how short is the battery life. Since it uses the USB port, there is no way to recharge while thermal is in use.

Again...just started playing with it tonight. But as I have gotten into the habit of having a spare charged battery or two (& a battery wall charger) nearby...the charging port does not have the criticality it once did.

#3. I am thinking just be able to see the warm spots to know where to investigate. I don't anticipate being able to ID a person or specific animal. Telling if it is a squirrel, turkey, or deer, cow would be useful.

#4. I wish my phone had the ability to use a spare battery. Most phones I look at don't.

#5. How do I justify needing one of these as an IT Sec. person?

I will be using this for business use while offshore (Thermography)..

..no reason you cannot do the same.


But with the cash you are pulling down in IT Sec..

..do you really need to cost justify $199?

Don't know about IT Security specifically, but IT in general, it could be a great help with power supply concerns. This is a honeywell lynx next to a thermostat, with the lynx power supply below.
Survival/Preparedness Forum

Imagine being able to find any hotspots in a 72" equipment rack, literally instantly...

Seems like for quick checking of problematic power supplies, network switches, etc that the ability to quickly check for hotspots would more than pay for itself in saved labor cost & equipment wear- and downtime-costs. Same thing for finding dead power supplies & such; instantly see which ones are inactive, based on absence of heat signature.

$200 is $200. If I can get the company to pay for my toys...

Exactly!!!

The bulky FLIR unit I used in the past for Thermography cost upwards of $10k...

...to think of a functional pocket Thermal unit (with still & video capture...as well as spot & high/low temp logging in Fahrenheit/Celsius/Kelvin) that can be used for Themography for only $200 is almost unbelievable!

I am much more concerned if it will detect the thermal signature generated by the decaying flesh of Zombies...

..but another cool feature of this little unit is the threshold is adjustable!
