Therein lies a problem that I have been telling inspectors who have contacted me regarding entering the IR field… many/most reps and some (ehem) “educators” don’t have a clue as to what imager is even remotely adequate for residential and commercial applications.
The really scary part is there are some “IR certified” and experienced inspectors who actually believe this app is for real and can actually turn your phone into a real thermal imager. (Use it in a totally dark room and see what kind of images you can get) :shock:
In my opinion… most of the lower end cameras marketed to inspectors aren’t much better or any more useful for residential and commercial inspections than this app (as fun as it is I agree), but at least the low ends are actually IR cameras.
On the plus side, the android app can take higher resolution photos and use a bigger view screen than most lower end cameras though! So I can see why many inspectors would get excited about it!
