Seek Thermal Compact PRO Smartphone Thermal Camera - For Android Details

Available with your choice of either 9Hz or FastFrame (above 15Hz) frame rates! The FastFrame version gives you a much smoother viewing experience when viewing moving objects.

The Compact PRO is Seek Thermal's most powerful thermal camera available for Android* smartphones and tablets!

Boasting a number of improvements compared to Seek's Compact and Compact XR models, this camera is ideal for a wide variety of professional inspections. Use it to detect problems with electrical components, use it to find building defects or even use it outdoors to track animals. There's nothing the Compact PRO can't do; if you've been looking for an affordable, high quality solution to get you into thermography, this is the product you've been looking for.

The main difference between this model and the Compact and Compac tXR is vastly improved thermal resolution of 320 x 240 pixels. This means that the image taken with the Compact PRO is higher quality than the same image you'd get with the other models. Similarly, the frame rate of the Compact PRO is also improved to above 15Hz, an improvement on the 9Hz offered on the Compact and CompactXR. This will give you a smoother image when moving with the camera.

Please note that the Seek Thermal is designed for use with smartphones with a micro-USB slot running at least Android 4.3. Therefore it has not been tested but may work with many other HTC, LG, Sony Xperia and some Galaxy Tab models.

*Please note that new Samsung phones, such as the S8 are supplied with adaptors which are not OTG enabled. Therefore you will need a separate adaptor with OTG (On The Go) capability in order to connect this Thermal Camera to your device.

NOTE: Android devices sometimes orient the microUSB connecter in different directions or locations. For correct usage the USB port should be located on the bottom, with the widest portion of the port aligned with the back of your smartphone. Many LG and HTC devices orient the connecter in the opposite direction, and many devices from Sony and Motorola often position the port on the side. In these cases it is recommended to use a microUSB cable or adapter to allow proper aiming and positioning of the camera (sold separately).
