Ratings and Reviews
They want full access to your phone
When you install it, it asks you to create an account and give them your email so they can send you "special offers". Then they want you to login when you use the product. They ask for access to all your photos you take, and ask for access to your location even when you're not using the phone. That's a bunch of baloney, none of that is needed to take a measurement. They just want your personal information and precise location 24/7 to resell to marketers and other companies. It soured my whole experience, otherwise I would have given four stars for the app itself.
Works better than expected with iPhone XR: Wireless Inspection Scope
It works great right out of the package. I bought it today at Home Depot. Almost didn’t buy it after reading poor reviews inside the store.... My biggest problem was that I tried to set it up without reviewing the instructions. Once I set up WiFi communication inside my phones settings, it was a breeze. I started out in basic mode, but quickly switched to the more advanced mode to save images. I had only one glitch when I could not get to the “OK” button on the scope’s app main screen . I simply closed and restarted the app without further issues. Two suggestions:1) The gripper mechanism for the phone is somewhat flimsy. You must use it or keep the phone within 10 feet since you are using the phone as your video monitor. I have dropped phones in the past with cracked screens ruining my day. 2) The battery cover comes off too easily. I decided to secure it with duct tape! I like the scope for the price. Today I used it to locate wiring and plumbing in a bathroom wall before mounting a cabinet.
I bought The inspections scope yesterday at Home Depot I read all the negative reviews I downloaded the app it asked to access the Wi-Fi and my camera didn’t make me set up a an account with the password or anything turn the scope on did my business everything worked fine so I don’t know what all the hoopla is about the negativity hope this helps you maybe some customers are not technical or savi in this area but it was basically a no brainer
I’ll write more as I try out the other products although I pretty much have most of those high-end ones that were 45 $600 each so these are great for a little temporary uses but for large jobs to find him a water pipe in the yard or things like that these devices don’t do that type of work but I didn’t expect it till it was for a small job to find if there was any mold growing in between the drywall and found no mold yay
