FLIR Systems launched at CES the FLIR ONE, the first consumer-oriented thermal imaging system for a smartphone.

Acting as a case for the Apple iPhone 5 or 5s smartphone, the FLIR ONE displays a live thermal image on the phone’s screen, letting you see in complete darkness.

FLIR ONE senses heat rather than light, using the same professional thermal imaging technology that FLIR uses in its thermal imaging systems for security, public safety, energy efficiency, nighttime navigation, industrial production, preventive maintenance, and outdoor recreation.

FLIR ONE allows for viewing and measuring thermal infrared energy from 32 °F to 212 °F (O °C to 100 °C) for things like identified heat or cooling leaks in buildings, finding studs in walls, or locating water damage. An outdoor enthusiast can observe wildlife, day or night, navigate in the dark, determine if the day’s catch is fully cooked, or make sure a campfire is out.

A family can detect intruders in total darkness, find a lost pet, or see through smoke in an emergency.
