Lorex itself sells video products through retail outlets for small businesses and homeowners. The company has hundreds of thousands of customers.
FLIR President Andy Teich said the company’s aim is to offer a low-resolution thermal imaging camera that is affordable for the average homeowner. The cost eventually could be as low as $US200, said Bill Klink, FLIR VP of business development.
Teich said FLIR’s goal is have infrared technology be “ultimately ubiquitous” in the way that GPS technology is. GPS, he said, answers the question, “Where am I?” and “thermal imaging will tell you what’s out there.”
