Upgrade to the latest on-camera FLIR Screen-EST™ Mode


As companies put their hard-working thermal imaging cameras to the task of skin temperature screening, FLIR is hard at work developing new features to make the on-camera FLIR Screen-EST™ Mode faster and easier to use.

This latest version of our screening mode adds easy-to-follow on-screen graphics, optional remote operation with a Bluetooth® button, and even a fully automated mode that reduces screening time to just seconds.

Button – Adds features such as detailed sample average prompts, screening subject positioning instructions, and a pass/fail display. Optional remote operation button controls screening and reference sampling.


Auto – Fully-automated mode guides the screening subject into position and initiates screening. Pass/fail graphics then direct the individual to continue on or report for additional screening. Auto mode is offered as a premium upgrade.


These latest improvements to the on-camera FLIR Screen-EST mode are compatible with the following FLIR thermal imaging camera models: E53, E75, E85, E95, T530, T540, T840, T860
