FlIR 3 lepton hardware

Hi there,

We have a project where we need to take time lapse photos collecting thermographic images. We were hoping to go with the FLIR Lepton 3 or 3.5 so we get the higher thermal resolution, so if possible please send me a parts list for the components we need to save these images to sd card or even so the images can be sent via email (sim).

Kind regards,


Hi Rob,

I would recommend a Raspberry Pi for this project. Documentation for using the FLIR cameras with Raspberry Pi can be found here:

You should be able to write a simple program to take pictures at intervals for your time lapse, and saving to an SD card or USB thumb drive is easy on the RPi because it has native support.

I hope that gets you started on your project! Let me know if you have further questions!
