Thermal Cameras Available at Montgomery County Public Libraries


The Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has recently made thermal imaging cameras available through Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL). Library cardholders can borrow the cameras to monitor energy use in their homes.

The easy-to-use cameras are designed to create visual heat maps to reveal hot and cold spots via color-coded images so users can easily identify areas in their homes that are losing or gaining energy. The cameras attach directly to the battery port of iPhones or android phones and can be checked out with an MCPL library card. Presently, there are four Android and four iPhone compatible FLIR-brand cameras available.

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Roy, This seems like a handy offering. Montgomery County public libraries has lots to offer besides borrowing books to read.

Roy, WOW, this is a great idea, and should check with our libraries around here to see if they have some available too.
