A question for the group.
Although I have carried out hundreds of Inspections / Surveys / Assessments, I have never had the finances to purchase an IR camera.
I now have the opportunity to obtain a CAT S61 smartphone which, I understand has the FLIR camera installed (as well as a Laser Measure). The question is: Should I invest in this phone for the camera, as it is the same price as a good FLIR camera? Does anyone have any experience with this phone and the actual accuracy of the device?
Ps - this phone locally is approx. 1 000 here in South Africa, and the cheapest IR camera is the SEEK XR Cell phone clip-on which costs 485, or the straight-forward camera which is also $ 1 200.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
