The Thermo Cam arrived today. What a great toy!
I tested it with different stuff first, amongst them our christmas tree (which we won't throw out before Mariä Lichtmess, on the 2nd of February, for reasons of tradition and lazyness).
As you can see the lightbulbs come out very clearly, with 22 centigrade, vs. the tree (around 19 centigrade). See the mirror behind the tree? The lightbulbs are half a degree warmer even in the mirrored image... interesting.
Then I took a few pics of the house.
I left the door open, and you can see the warmth that flows out. You can even see where the heating and the pipes are running (in the second floor, on the front corner).
The camera software allows different colorings (remember it is not recording colors, just temperatures). Here is a different palette:
This is sooo much fun.
