FLIR ONE for Android & All iOS Devices
WILSONVILLE OR, USA – FLIR Systems, Inc.has announced the next generation FLIR ONE™
It is a small and lightweight thermal imaging attachment that is compatible with either iOS or Android devices and was shown first at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Once connected, the versatile FLIR ONE transforms mobile devices into powerful thermal imagers, which unlock a host of practical applications from home improvement to outdoor adventure.
When connected to an applicable Android device via the microUSB port or an Apple Device via the lightning connector, depending on the version, the FLIR ONE attachment operates through the FLIR ONE app, that displays live infrared imagery that allows users to see the world from a thermal perspective.
Inside, it contains FLIR’s upgraded revolutionary Lepton thermal camera core, which features four
times the resolution of the original.
When combined with multi-spectral dynamic imaging (MSX), the innovative feature that embosses the visible camera image onto the thermal image, FLIR ONE greatly enhances the user’s ability to decipher details in every respect.
This proprietary and patented technology is additive in that no thermal information is lost, enhancing the perceived 640 x 480 resolution of the thermal image!
“With the introduction of FLIR ONE, we helped iPhone users discover a superpower through thermal imaging,” said Jeff Frank, Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer at FLIR.
“With the nextgen FLIR ONE, we’re thrilled to extend that superpower to Android users as well, while also supporting a range of Apple devices all combined into a lighter, more powerful package.”
The next-generation FLIR ONE can be used as an even more effective tool in a range of situations thanks to its increased thermal power, including:
• Home improvement: More clearly identify and pinpoint heat loss, energy inefficiency and
• Outdoor adventures: Observe wildlife at a greater distance, day or night, survey a campsite,
or find a lost pet;
• Security and safety: See at night more clearly than ever, detect intruders, and see through
light fog and smoke;
• Creativity: Observe abstract patterns and create artistic images with greater thermal detail.
FLIR ONE detects a broad spectrum of temperatures and includes a more advanced spot
temperature measurement display along with an auto shutter that eliminates the need to manually
reset the thermal sensor when the scene changes.
Despite weighing less than a third the weight of the original, it also maintains its own dedicated battery source, so it will not drain power from the phone.
Users can take photos or record video using thermal imaging and then share them via text, email, or social media through the improved FLIR ONE App.
The app will incorporate the companion apps released with the iPhone 5 and 5s version into one unified app, to be available at the Apple App Store and on Google Play in concert with the device mid-year 2015.
Additionally, a FLIR ONE software developer kit (SDK) was released in December 2014 for the iOS platform, available at: http://flir.com/flirone/developer.CFM.
Developers for Android will gain access to the SDK in the spring.
With this SDK, developers will be able to access absolute temperature data for all pixels and control the Lepton camera’s shutter mode, in both manual and automatic settings.
The FLIR ONE will be available for pre-order online from FLIR.com mid-year and will be available
through retail partners across the globe later this year.
