The FLIR Scout TK thermal vision monocular, the smallest and lightest camera in the FLIR Scout series, enables users to see in total darkness and become better aware of their surroundings. With more than five hours of battery life, the Scout TK detects body heat of people and animals, or helps identify key landmarks.

The FLIR TG130 spot thermal camera is an entry-level camera for a broad spectrum of home and small business applications. By simply pointing the TG130 at an object, anyone can identify energy and temperature-related issues within and around a structure. From finding drafts, detecting heat loss around doors and windows, or locating areas of missing insulation, the TG130 pinpoints problems and helps users increase a home's energy efficiency.

"Our two latest Lepton-based products help deliver on FLIR's mission to provide people a sixth sense to enhance personal awareness and improve productivity in their mission, work, or personal lives," says Andy Teich, CEO and President of FLIR. "We are excited to introduce these two new products that are bringing the power of thermal imaging to a whole new class of customers."
