M5StickT2 is a sleek and compact infrared thermal camera designed for precise temperature measurement. It features the advanced FLIR Lepton 3.0 long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera core, delivering a clear and stable image with an effective resolution of 160 * 120. As a non-contact infrared sensor covering a large area, it provides an excellent solution for temperature monitoring applications.
The main control chip of M5StickT2 is Espressif's ESP32, which not only offers built-in Wi-Fi support but also delivers impressive computing speeds of up to 240MHz. This ensures seamless image output with a high frame rate of 7 FPS and above. The 1.14-inch screen with a resolution of 135 * 240 allows for easy viewing of thermal images. M5StickT2 comes equipped with a wide range of hardware resources. It includes a built-in 6-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for motion sensing, a digital microphone for audio input, and a power management chip to optimize battery usage. Speaking of battery, the device incorporates a 300mAh battery for convenient portability.
For interactive operation, M5StickT2 provides two programmable buttons and a rotary encoder, offering intuitive control and customization options. To expand the device's capabilities, a 4 Pin HY2.0 interface with I2C support is available at the bottom, allowing users to connect additional peripherals and sensors. The body of M5StickT2 is 3D printed using high-quality Black Nylon filament, ensuring durability and a sleek appearance. Furthermore, it features an M3 screw hole and a 1/4" screw hole on the underside, facilitating easy mounting in various setups.
Power switch operation:
Press the reset button to power on. The default display screen is RGB display mode. The left side is the temperature image, the upper right is the power display, and the lower right is the histogram and temperature range. The temperature range is automatically adjusted with the target temperature. The default bulls-eye automatically tracks the maximum temperature. Press the button on the right side of the fuselage (B button) to switch the tracking mode (minimum / center / maximum value), press the button A on the front of the fuselage to switch the image display mode (GRAY / GOLDEN / RAINBOW / IRONBLACK / RGB). Dial encoder controls the display sensitivity (adjust the display temperature and color gamut), and long press the reset button for 6 seconds to turn off.

i'd love to convert the built-in app to imperial vs metric, being in the US, but there is no micropython or uiflow support given (that i could find). The hardware is very impressive.
