The Therm-App, an external device that turns Android smart phones and mobile devices into thermal cameras with high resolution thermography and long range, enhanced night vision, will now be made available for $999, down from $1, 600.
At this point, the Therm-App is not iPhone compatible.
The company is developing a Therm-App for Google Glass.
The company expects the new price will make the product more accessible to the general public.
The device fits simply over the camera on the back of a smart phone. It also comes with a number of accessories. It is the only mobile thermal imaging device which offers high resolution night and bad weather vision capabilities, Opgal says.
Amit Mattatia, president & CEO of Opgal, said, “As the world’s first night vision camera of its kind, Therm-App received tremendous response from the market. We’re inviting professionals to take advantage of our special offer, benefit from our high quality thermal imaging, and become part of our growing user community.
“When it comes to Therm-App, there’s always more to see. While we are continuing to develop additional features such as advanced thermography, we’re also interested in seeing where developers take it — how they use our SDK to develop innovative applications and cater to untapped market segments.”
Opgal has promoted its thermal imaging technologies for use by law enforcement and private security firms around the world. Border police, for example, can use it not only to view what goes on at night but film everything that they see at the same time for later review.
