As the specs point out, and admirably don't try to hide, there's a 16:1 ratio of distance:measure-spot.

I don't know it's actual operations, but the lasers are only for targeting. It's almost certainly measuring IR emissions from the target area. The columnating optics just aren't the greatest. If you did have your 200m reach (in a sense you do if it is IR radiance) then the spot size would be 12.5m - a bit bigger than your car (I think?) and you'd be averaging in a mass amount of background emissions. The note that it "averages" is just a nice way of spinning of that it's not a pinpoint measurement. For my windows, I stood close.

They also give a little chart about emissivity for various materials. That would take into account the black-body characteristics of the materials. My version just said it's not accurate on certain types of materials. Remember: it's IR not visible light that it's measuring. Your view of the color (glass) and it's perspective will only occasional coincide.

Since you're rolling in cash, you could get an IR imaging system so you can get a 2D view of an area. Particular good for knowing if your woman's 'really in the mood'.
