10 Best FLIR Surveillance Cameras
for November 2022

FLIR is a leading manufacturer of thermal imaging cameras, which use infrared technology to detect heat. These cameras, which can be used for home security, surveillance, and law enforcement, are invaluable in detecting intruders, criminals, and fires.

FLIR cameras use infrared technology to detect heat, which can reveal hidden objects, people, and even animals. FLIR cameras can be used to monitor indoor and outdoor locations, such as your home, office, or business. FLIR cameras can also detect heat in smoke, which can be useful when investigating fires. FLIR cameras can also be used to verify car function, detect leaks, inspect for termites, or inspect for hazardous gas.

In the Different Guide , we test FLIR cameras for performance and ease of use. We evaluate camera resolution, frame rates, and sensors, as well as camera features, such as night vision, image stabilization, and zoom. We also test camera performance, including how the camera performs in low-light conditions, how it handles motion, and how well it captures colors.

Our top pick for a FLIR camera is the FLIR C2 Pro, which is one of the best cameras for outdoor surveillance. The C2 Pro has a 320 x 240 infrared sensor, which captures sharp images at night and during the day. It also has an image sensor that can capture 12MP stills, and 4K video.

Here are the best FLIR cameras you can buy in 2022:
