Whether that's tracking game, detecting the body heat of others in areas they aren't authorised to be in, detecting heat problems with your home or even finding overheating electrical components, the Compact XR is ideal for a huge variety of different jobs.
The Compact XR is actually the upgraded version of the Seek Thermal Compact. The main difference between the two is the detection distance and field of view - the XR's narrower field of view gives it the ability to detect over a wider range up to 550m (the Compact can only detect to 300m).

The Compact XR will allow you to see what the eye normally can't - the camera sees the world as infrared rather than visible light, allowing to you to easily pinpoint a wide variety of problems which may have otherwise been missed!

Please note that not all Android smartphones and tablets are compatible with the Seek Thermal Compact.
Please review all of the following information carefully to determine whether or not your device is compatible with the Seek Thermal Compact.
Any questions? Please call us directly.
Smartphone Case Compatibility
In some cases, thicker smartphone cases (especially ruggedized ones) will not provide enough clearance around the connection port. To use the camera you must either remove the case or attach the camera using an extender or adapter (sold separately).
Operating System Compatibility
You will require an Android smartphone or tablet running at least Android 4.3 to use this camera and the compatible app.
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.
List of Incompatible Devices
The Seek Thermal Compact will NOT work with these products.
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).
