Flir is an awesome tool for night time patrol. We had several which mounted on the spot light of the car. The display was run to our laptops. Anytime I rolled up on an alarm, or disturbance I would scan the property before exiting the car. Another neat trick I learned was using it to scan parking lots. You could easily pick out the vehicles which had been recently driven. Caught a burglar one night doing this.
We had lower end units only real drawbacks were they would not zoom and there was about a second of delay between real time and what was being displayed.
