Yes I know this is a basic low res thermal imager, but for $90 I'm going to give it a try.. as Amazon has similar for $109.99 . I'm hoping it will give enough detail using the overlay app (similar to FLIR) to find where to insulate , where to stop air leaks and check hot spots all while staying under $100.
For those wanting some more resolution with a little less thermal detection range (degrees not distance) : I see slickdeal for a FLIR android USBC - for $150 deal is still on https://slickdeals.net/f/13728635-flir-one-thermal-imaging-camera-attachment-gen-3-ios-or-android-150-free-shipping?src=SiteSearch
Reading that thread - i see there are better resolution options out there that do cost more.

EDIT: looked around for some reference material to 'see' how it compares - just so everyone knows what they are getting.
see Page 31 compares to Seek version of USB cameras.
look @ the 4th image on this Amazon listing you will see the pixelation difference...and range differences . - this 32x32 will be similar to the 1024 pixel version IR0001.
