WILSONVILLE, Ore. — FLIR Systems Inc. has introduced the FLIR ONE™, a thermal imaging accessory for smartphones. FLIR ONE attaches to any Apple iPhone 5 or 5S smartphone and displays a live thermal image on the phone’s screen.

FLIR ONE senses heat rather than light utilizing the company’s new Lepton™ camera core. With the ability to see and measure infrared energy, this tool can be used in a variety of applications. For example, contractors and technicians with a FLIR ONE can easily identify heat or cooling leaks in buildings, find studs in walls, or locate water damage.

A worldwide rollout for FLIR ONE is planned for spring 2014, and it will be available in gray, white, or gold colors. FLIR ONE houses its own rechargeable battery that can power the device for two hours of continuous use and can boost iPhone 5 battery life by up to 50 percent.
