Product Description

This popular Raspberry Pi Kit for the FLIR Lepton was developed by GroupGets long ago for the first ever FLIR Hackathon. It is now used in hackathons and research labs worldwide. This updated kit includes the latest Raspberry Pi 3 and 8MP Pi camera, higher quality accessories, and of course our open source pylepton software library to get you grabbing video from Lepton with Python quickly. We are offering all of these upgrades now at the lowest price ever for this kit.

  • Each unit is configured and tested before shipment.
  • With this kit you can develop thermal or blended thermal and daylight apps. Requires a FLIR Lepton, if you don't already have a Lepton you can add one as an accessory during checkout.
  • Important information for customers in China and Hong Kong, due to recent US regulations we are no longer able to ship FLIR thermal cameras to these countries/territories. Any orders containing these products from these countries will be canceled and refunded. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Options and Add-Ons

Radiometric FLIR Lepton 2.5


The radiometric FLIR Lepton 2.5 camera core builds upon its 2.0 predecessors in that its temperature value for each pixel is irrespective of the temperature of the camera core itself. This has long been desired by the Lepton developer community. A Lepton 2.x core is required for this kit's operation. Add a Lepton 2.5 here if you don't already have a Lepton to plug into the kit. Note, this kit does not officially support Lepton 3.

How it works

This is a group buy campaign that needs to acquire at least the stated minimum amount of pledges from backers like you before the Unit Deliverable and any Add-Ons ship. We do not charge anyone until the Progress above hits 100% or greater, otherwise there is no charge. All campaign products are vetted as existing and functional so your order will be fulfilled within the Factory Lead Time if the campaign succeeds. Please see our FAQ page for more details on our billing process.

    Can we create a different view of the thermal and normal camera for our project? I mean we will not use the thermal overlay. We will only use the thermal view and normal view. Also, can you provide a Lepton 3 accessory with this kit? Thanks.

    If you wanted to display both the thermal and the daylight side by side you would have to modify the code. You can do one or the other by using either pylepton_overlay -a 255 or the code pylepton_overlay -a 0 when you start the program. We don't offer Lepton 3 as an accessory to this kit currently due to it not being compatible with the current pylepton overlay software. If you would like to purchase both I would recommend buying them separately in our store (store.groupgets.com).

    Raniel, pyletpon (https://github.com/groupgets/pylepton/tree/lepton3-dev) is our Lepton software library that you can use/modify at will to get the video outcomes that you want. You'll have to do some hacking but it is possible to get what you want. This kit does not yet officially support Lepton 3. Some people can get it to work and others have issues. We are working on making it a better experience. That said, you can buy a Lepton 3 from us in our store and we can combine it with the Pi Kit from the Group Buy so you only pay for one shipping cost: https://store.groupgets.com/collections/frontpage/products/l3. Just leave a note when you purchase.
