FLIR Systems Announces Availability of FLIR ONE, the First Thermal Imaging Camera for iPhone

Share this on social media:

FLIR Systems has announced that the FLIR ONE thermal imaging accessory for smartphones is now available in the US for pre-order online. The award-winning FLIR ONE is a lightweight accessory that transforms an iPhone 5 or 5s into a powerful thermal imager. When paired with its iPhone app, FLIR ONE displays live infrared imagery that allows the user to see the world from a thermal perspective.

FLIR ONE availability in Europe is expected to begin by mid-August with availability in other regions to follow soon after. FLIR ONE will also be available to buy in Apple Stores and on Apple.com in August.

FLIR ONE detects invisible heat energy, giving consumers the ability to "see" and measure minute variances in temperature. FLIR ONE enables a host of practical solutions for consumers - from detecting energy leaks at home to seeing in complete darkness. For the first time, FLIR ONE brings powerful energy saving and situational awareness capabilities to a smart phone platform.

"FLIR is dedicated to developing and delivering technologies that provide users with a sixth sense," said Andy Teich, President and CEO of FLIR Systems. "Based on technology that was formerly reserved for the military, FLIR ONE is the first in a new generation of affordable thermal imaging devices designed to inspire imaginative and innovative uses by consumers. This represents a revolutionary step forward for both FLIR Systems and thermal imaging."

FLIR ONE serves a broad range of uses, including:

  • Home improvement: Identify heat loss, energy inefficiency, and water leaks.
  • Outdoor adventures: Observe wildlife day or night, survey a campsite, or find a lost pet.
  • Security and safety: See at night, detect intruders, and see through light fog and smoke.
  • Creativity: Observe abstract patterns and create artistic images.

FLIR ONE detects a broad range of temperatures and has a spot temperature measurement display. Users can capture either photos or videos and share them via text, email, or social media through the FLIR ONE app which will be available in the Apple App Store. Other FLIR ONE apps scheduled for release include:

  • FLIR ONE TimeLapse: Turns a series of thermal images into a seamless time-lapse video, revealing changes in temperature through time.
  • FLIR ONE Paint: Share fun and dramatic photos that selectively display color and thermal elements.
  • FLIR ONE Panorama: Turns a series of contiguous imagery into a single panoramic image.

Weighing just 3.9 ounces, FLIR ONE was engineered to add minimal size and weight and was designed to emulate the form factor of the iPhone for a sleek presentation. It houses its own rechargeable battery for up to two hours of continuous use and is initially available in Space Gray, with Silver and Gold versions available soon.
