The Electromagnetic Spectrum
Normally, our vision is limited to a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Thermal energy has a much longer wavelength than visible light. So long, in fact, that the human eye can’t even see it, just like we can’t see radio waves.
With thermal imaging, the portion of the spectrum we perceive is dramatically expanded, helping us “see” heat. Visible light doesn’t affect the thermal world, so you can see equally well in highly lit and totally dark environments.
The FLIR ONE™ thermal camera allows us to see things the naked eye could never perceive on its own.
Gamma Rays have the smallest wavelengths and most energy of any wave in the spectrum. They can be generated by nuclear explosions, lightning, and radioactive decay.
X-rays have very high energy and short wavelengths, between 0.03 and 3 nanometers. Some are no bigger than a single atom of many elements.
UV has shorter wavelengths than visible light, though some insects like bumblebees can actually see it. Fortunately, about 95% of harmful UV-B rays are absorbed by Earth's ozone.
All electromagnetic radiation is lightâ€”the portion our eyes can see, we call visible light. Cone-shaped cells in our eyes act as receivers tuned to the wavelengths in this narrow band of the spectrum.
Infrared light waves are just beyond the spectrum of light visible to the human eye. Most of the energy of the sun arrives on earth as infrared light.
Radio waves have the longest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum, ranging from the length of a football to larger than our planet.
You’ll explore the world around you in ways you never thought possible, with no additional cords, cases, devices or screens necessary. Pop it onto your iPhone5 or 5s, and take it with you wherever you go. A new world of vision in the palm of your hand.
What to expect when you open the box.
We’ve taken the technological precision of military-grade night vision, and packed it into a wafer-form camera smaller than a dime.
The patented, exclusive image-blending process called Multi-Spectral Dynamic Imaging combines the photo with the thermal image, producing images of unrivaled clarity and quality.
The most compact long-wave Infrared sensor
in existence, Lepton captures detailed thermal images or video at the touch of a button.
The camera lens simultaneously captures a
standard image every time you shoot a
thermal photo or video.
It provides a simple user interface with a variety of functions for operating your new FLIR ONE device. And this is just the beginning.

Timelapse video lets you quickly observe the often-subtle way things change by speeding up time. Combine that with the thermal imaging power of a FLIR ONE-enabled iPhone 5/5s, and now you can view, capture, and easily share incredible thermal time lapse movies, showing changes in a scene and its temperatures over time.
Apply the power of your FLIR ONE-enabled iPhone 5/5s to awe-inspiring panoramic images with ThermalPanorama. Capture stunning wide-angle pictures of breathtaking scenery, then easily save, manage and share them with the world. Get the big picture in a way you’ve never seen it before!
Create and share fun and dramatic photos that blend color and thermal elements together with your FLIR ONE-enabled iPhone 5/5s. FLIR ONE Paint is an easy way
to capture color photos and convert selected elements from color to thermal with
the swipe of your finger. So you can create images that make selected objects
really stand out!
