Thermal imaging technology dates back to the 1950s and has evolved predominantly in military, public safety, and sophisticated industrial applications. Price and complexity has historically kept availability out of reach from consumers, tradesmen, and untold numbers of others who could benefit from technology’s potential applications.
Seek thermal broke all the barriers with their compact lineup of thermal imaging products. Their purpose is as focused as the infrared imaging technologies they create: to make thermal imaging an accessible, everyday tool, so users can do their jobs faster, smarter, safer and more profitably. They give the consumer the ability see what would normally be unseen.
With Seek Thermal’s smartphone based compact product, Seek desired to adapt the technology into an intelligently designed device that was portable, battery-powered, and affordable. Gyre9’s design and engineering teams developed the first, low cost, IR imaging camera with a built in light source.
