Camera’s with thermal imaging can detect infrared light in the dark, allowing you to see things around you thermally. 

There have been a lot of devices that have been released that can turn any smartphone into a thermal imaging camera but most of them are really expensive. 

But now, you can inexpensively turn most iPhone or Android handsets into a thermal camera that can clearly make out images in the dark using one of the ‘Seek Thermal’ camera attachment.

The small devices plug into the power connection on many smartphones and it lets you take both still images or videos in the dark. 

The low resolution images are somewhat grainy, but if you need to see what’s lurking in the dark in your yard or down a really dark alley or parking lot, the Seek Thermal camera gets the job done. 

The Seek attachment will also allow you to see where pipes might be clogged, where the hot air is seeping out of your house or check the temps of just about surface you point it at.
