Thermal cameras have a wide range of uses, including by law enforcement to look for criminals at night or when hiding in brush, as a night vision system by the military, and by environmental inspectors looking for heat leaks from faulty insulation, finding lost pets in the dark, looking for energy leaking from your house, or to watch for wildlife.

The device works by merging the heat signature information it gets from the infrared camera with the live camera image from the iPhone. This afterwards delivers a merged thermal heat image.
