In 2015 we quit our lives in the city to buy bare land in the country and build a timber frame home from scratch with our bare hands, debt-free, with no prior experience. It’s been a wild ride of ups, downs, highs, lows, rain and rainbows, but we haven’t lost sight of our goals and have gotten further in three years than we thought we’d get in ten. Join us as we build our house, develop our rural property, practice traditional skills such as gardening and food preservation and go to even greater heights (literally) of exploring the world through aviation as a new private pilot!

USB-C provides a faster charge time and data transfer, thats why all the new androids phones are going that route..

Please do not tell us the gender of your child until she/he is born. Life has become so over come with technical advances that it often takes the gift of surprise away from us. We have two children, the first child was a boy and when the second child was in the process of being born I just thought we had another boy being born. You see there hadn’t been a girl born in my side of the family in twenty five years. To everyone surprise a wonderful little screaming girl came out. I was over joyed!!!!!! Because the hospital was so short handed at the time the doctor handed my daughter to me to take care of. I sat down in a chair and held her while I cried for an hour. That was the best surprise and gift I’ve ever gotten. If you can just wait til your child is born to determine their gender. You’ll love them just the same. You will teach them about the world the same way so just let this be your gift to yourself.

My son has a phone that is supplied by the company he works for that has IR, they use it for looking for hot spots on computers and electronic equipment. he came on a visit and I was amazed that when he pointed it at the chair I had been sitting in before he arrived showed the outline of my body and a hot spot on the floor where the cat had been laying.

Once you figure out the time-lapse you should record your breaker boxes. Breakers are thermal switches after all, so you can know now if circuits are getting uncomfortably warm

He's talking about conserving energy by turning off a monitor! (12:15) Motes and beams spring to mind. There are a million bigger issues in that house/lifestyle. Don't get me wrong, their house/money/lifestyle and, more importantly, regulatory environment. But prioritise guys. Garage doors and air leaks spring to mind.

There are different IR Cameras available, some that Fire Fighters use to look through Smoke to see "Hot Spots", Victims trapped in a burning structure, also some that rescue personnel use to look for lost people either on land and/or on water.

I remember commenting on one of these, glad to see you have one now. your right about the garage doors. Another thing to learn about is thermal radiative heat transfer and how it works. lean about the emissivity of different objects (there is a setting in the FLIR on that). It will help you figure out how to interpret. One thing to inspect is the breaker box. It's good to take a pic and you can compare it upon future inspections. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emissivity

USB type C offers several advantages. One is that it is much more robust than USB micro b. It also allows for faster charging and faster data transfer.

Don't forget that our military uses flir night vision to navigate in the dark so they don't have to use light that gives away their position. Our military has been using it since before it was available to the public.

The reason for USB C is its "Universal" and superior to Lightning in every way. Apple needs to get off its proprietary high horse and join the rest of the world and stop gouging/forcing its customers to use proprietary connectors. Its obvious why they do it though... Good for business. Smart company. Glad FLIR recognized that and adopted USB C for power port. 100W capability and has the potential to use power delivery. Smart of FLIR.

Flir runs a monopoly on infared imaging camera's, they still cost 400 to 600 dollars for their dedicated camera units. And I looked up this Flir gadget for phones, and they range between 200 to 400 dollars. I don't consider that anywhere near affordable to someone on a low income. We need more companies making thermal imaging camera's for a much more affordable price. I consider 50 bucks for a thermal imaging camera to be affordable, but thats never going to happen as long as Flir holds the monopoly.

Lowest resolution (80x60 thermal) it is a joke, you get what you pay for, but with Flir you get less... (have Flir i7, and Seek themal Black UW-AAA, worked with half a dozen cameras made by Flir and other manufacturers up to 640/480 thermal) , played with lepton module (same thing as in this Flir one)...
HoppersLab 2 months ago
shiny objects will not give an accurate temp reading, you need to use dull tape or a flat paint to get a better reading. it's called emissivity.

Wow that screen had a lot of stutter....I would certainly hope that you did not pay full asking price, because that thing behaved poorly, and that is how it behaves there is no way I could see recommending this device to anyone..... ever. I bought a perfect prime IR0001 unit for diagnosing misfires on vehicles for around the same price as the FLIR One, and the performance destroys what I have just witnessed. Thanks for the demo.

Flir One was exciting when it comes out.. Price and quality amazed even us as sellers.. Then was so many requests for that camera, that factory can't supply needed quantity for all the world and customers waiting.. After time all went in normal rails.. Even i want that camera for myself but didn't buy - decided to wait few years.. :) For Android version - before buying, please verify compatibility and USB charging port direction for Your phone.. In market is phones with socket mounted upside down. Flir One works with these phones but Flir camera is pointing on display side, not phone back side.. God for thermal selfies only.. :D Some customers was disappointed about that.. iPhone version doesn't have that issue..

I own a flir f8 and at 10 times the price you do get 10 times the resolution. Unless your using every day, (which i am not , it's totally not worth it). Useful at times... but it's only as good as the thermographer using it. My f8 is for sale don't use it enough. :(

As a builder we spend tons of money on the mandatory “Blower door Test”. If we fail we have to reschedule a test, down time waiting, and re-examine fee. During a failing test, they do bring out the FLIR to reveal areas of concern. To have a personal device to use at will during the build to prevent a failed test entirely justifies the cost of this device! IECC 2012 makes this make sense. Thermal bridging, air intrusion, where the insulation subcontractor took a vacation.........
