Using the Flir One as a night vision device works, but only OK. The thermal imager is pretty low-res. Normally it creates a combined image from the visible spectrum and thermal range. The image from the visible spectrum gives the final picture its detail and edges.

In the dark, with thermal only, the image is blurrier and harder to tell what is what. Other than that, the thermal portion still works well and can see temperature differences at a distance pretty well.

I'll have to see if I can take a photo of the neighbor's dog at night some time.
Sounds like a smart phone version of the fluke thermal imager.
