The FLIR Scout TK is a pocket-sized thermal vision monocular for exploring the outdoors—at night and in lowlight conditions. Scout TK reveals your surroundings and helps you see people, objects and animals over 100 yards (90 m) away. Simple to use, with still image and video recording, Scout TK is the perfect companion, whether in the back country or your own backyard. FLIR Scout TK makes outdoor thermal imaging more accessible than ever. With the ability to see heat signatures in total darkness, users become better aware of their surroundings. Scout TK is also the lightest (6 oz/170 g), most affordable camera in the FLIR Scout series. You can find wildlife and see people over 100 yards away. Pocket-sized and designed for single-handed use, FLIR Scout TK starts up in seconds and requires no training. It offers a simple four-button design and intuitive interface. Choose between nine video palettes, including White/Black Hot, InstAlert, and Graded Fire. Plus, it’s built with a rugged, weather-resistant shell that can withstand bumps and splashes on the trail. In addition to packing the Scout TK for outdoor adventures, it’s also a great everyday tool for personal and home security at night. Keep an eye on your property 24/7, search for missing pets or predators, and scan sidewalks, parking lots, and parks in the dark. The Scout TK features a 5-hour rechargeable Li-Ion battery for long-lasting operation.

      Full review from avid FLIR thermal product user As a long time user of FLIR (military service), I was ecstatic when I saw the FLIR Scout TK was released.

I finally got around to purchasing the Scout TK and for $600, it’s pretty sweet. FOV is a bit narrow but that’s to be expected and an easy transition from the other Scout monocular models I use for work (at a price…

Attached is a video I took and when I turn the color palette to Black Hot you can definitely see the squirrel condo. I…

The back-scatter from foliage in the foreground also makes anything further than a few yards impossible to see.This thermal monocular…
