Hi

Despite the advertising, you will need to be fairly close to the animal, especially in warm weather, to detect a heat signature. Brush and cover, which serve to insulate the animal, will further reduce the effectiveness. In my experience, these things work, but you usually need to be right on top of the animal. Definitely no substitute for good tracking skills.
