Seek Thermal Compact XR


The Seek Thermal Compact XR is an extremely affordable way to get glimpse into the secretive world of wildlife. 

The Compact XR gives a narrower field of view than the standard Compact, which in turn allows it to detect heat signatures up to 40 yards away.

In addition to wildlife watching, thermal imaging provides a useful insight into the detection of energy loss in homes, commercial buildings, and industrial facilities. Inspection with thermal imaging detects energy loss caused by air leaks, missing or damaged insulation, inefficient HVAC systems, and poor construction.

Quick to connect and detect, the smartphone attachment is designed to work with both iPhone and Android top models.  This device is portable and easy to pack away for any occasion.  It combines powerful thermal insight with a 206×156 sensor, a 36-degree wide field of view, and runs off the low energy from your smartphone.  Your smartphone display makes this as visual and large as your phone or tablet. Seek Compact uses advanced infrared technology to let you see thermal images in day or night – and comes with its own waterproof carry case.

The difference between the Compact series and Reveal series is portability, durability, and size.  If you are using this in dirty environments where your smartphone is not ideal, choose the Reveal model that’s best for you.  If portable connect & detect is right, Seek Compact is the one.
