Security Drone – DJI Inspire 1 with the Zenmuse XT Camera

The camera on the DJI Zenmuse XT is developed by FLIR. It provides high-sensitivity (50mK) infrared scanning at 640/30 fps or 336/30 fps depending on the camera model. This sensitivity provides accurate temperature measurements ideal for analytics and telemetry. Both cameras are available with four lens options to meet different business needs. Stabilized and controlled by a custom DJI gimbal, it provides smooth, clear imagery and 360 degrees of seamless rotational movement.

When used with either the Inspire 1 or the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can be put into the air in seconds. It is seamlessly integrated, giving it complete access to key features including the powerful Lightbridge video transmission system (providing up to 3.1 miles (5KM*) of HD range), automated Point of Interest, Course and Home Lock, Follow Me, and the DJI SDK.

When combined with the Inspire 1, the Zenmuse XT works with incredible speed, efficiency and convenience. If used with the Matrice 100, the Zenmuse XT can stay in-flight for up to 35 minutes*, ideal for large scale inspections and especially useful in search and rescue scenarios.

*Maximum range in open areas under optimal conditions free of interference.

*Inspire 1: Flight times vary based on flight conditions, with a maximum 22 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with a TB48 battery using the Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.

*M100: Flight times vary based on payload and flight conditions, with a maximum 35 minute flight time being recorded when hovering with dual TB48D batteries and no additional payload other than a Zenmuse XT gimbal camera.

  1. i need one of these ive got a bigfoot at my lake property i wanna see where he goes at night .and mabe this will keep him away.

  2. it would be an absolutely awesome add to a home security cam setup, particularly if it can be piloted by a remote PC (miles away) over wifi or something. Granted you'd have to drop the resolution of the stream way down… I could see "lag" getting you in real big trouble like crashing it or something. Maybe if it could just be programmed like the old "Big Track" from the 70's to just fly a set pattern that you program in, and return to a charging station… even if you had to plant some kind of markers on your roof to give it frame of reference. Of course then the problem is unless you're in a remote area… like if you're in a suburban setting, everyone's going to think you're spying on them…

  3. XT Camera does Not work on the Inspire 2. Why did they not change the name. the have terrable customer service too. It will will never happen for the i2 as everyone says that wonderful XT camera runs on a different platform. Don't purchase a Inspire 2 if you want thermal imaging with the XT. The fools!
