  • Not very precise but useful if you know how to.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It's light and easy to use, shows temperature without touching the object. That's what it's supposed to do.

    By doing that it's fast and quite accurate if you know how to handle it.

    - shows temperature from some cm distance

    - faster than normal thermometers

    Cons:

    Measured temperature depents strongly on the distance between object and sensor. So you have to practice and find out the "right" distance to the object.

    You can't measure hot water or meal from above because the window mists.

    - very distance-dependant results

    - steam distorts measurment

    - a bit too expensive for it's sensor quality

    OtherThoughts:

    Slower "viewing angle" would be nice in order to have a weaker distance dependance.

    Room temperature can be measured very reliable just by holding in the air.

    Bottomline:

    Useful for measuring room temperature and object temperature from the side, NOT from above!
