The FLIR Mobile SDK is a software development kit that enables developers to create mobile platform applications that utilize FLIR APIs to integrate thermal imaging/sensing and metering capabilities into their apps. This quick start guide will help developers understand what hardware and software they’ll need and how to get started developing apps using this SDK quickly.

Required Hardware and Software

Hardware you’ll need:

1 A mobile device:

Apple iPhone or iPad

Any iOS device running iOS 11 or above.

Supported Android device

Software You’ll Need

An Approved Developer Account for the Platform of Your Choice

You’ll need a valid  developer account for the supported platform development environment of your choice.  We currently support Apple iOS and Google Android development.

The FLIR Mobile SDK

The SDK is a software package that you’ll include in your Xcode or Android Studio project. It contains the libraries, APIs, and sample applications we’re written to allow you to utilize the supported devices from your code.  You will be required to create a FLIR Developer account and accept the license agreement before you can download the SDK.
