Why should you buy multiple gadgets when the internal components are all the same? That’s the question that the folks behind the Flir FX security camera seemed to be asking themselves when they designed the product. Why’s that? Well, the Flir FX is a more than just a security camera or at least, that’s what it aims to be. It can also double as a GoPro-like action camera, dash cam for your car, or security camera depending on the housing you put it into.
When you purchase the $199 FX you’ll be getting a modular camera capable of shooting 1080p video with a 160-degree viewing angle. It also comes with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi which allows for streaming video up into the cloud as well as a speaker and microphone for two-way conversations. What’s more, onboard infrared LEDs allow the camera to shoot night time video for up to 30 feet in the dark. There’s also two battery packs (included in the camera itself and the stand) that allow for a combined four hours of video recording. There are a number of other cool features including RapidRecaps, which superimposes all of the video taken during the course of a day so you can then select the particular moment you want to view. You can get your own Flir FX online via the Flir website today.
