DIY-Thermocam by DIYCAM-Thermocam


The DIY-Thermocam is an open-source, do-it-yourself thermographic camera for everyone.

The aim of this project is to give private persons, educational institutes or small companies access to a portable and low-cost thermal imaging plattform.

There are various applications like finding heat leaks in the insulation of buildings including windows, the analysis of electric or mechanical components, the detection of persons or animals and many more.

Offered as an easy to assemble kit with almost one-hundred components, the DIY-Thermocam allows you to take advantage of the versatile possibilities of thermal imaging!

The large firmware written in Arduino compatible C++ code can be used as it is adapted to your own needs.
