Low Cost Thermal Camera
Thermal cameras with a low resolution LCD screen cost $400+ dollars. At this price point, they are beyond the reach of most home owners. These cameras can provide valuable insight into potential water problems, help locate pipes and identify areas which need more insulation.
Our goal will be to build a camera for under $120 in parts. If we have time, we'll also build a web backend to store images captured with the device.
