Ratings and Reviews
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
Whose to blame?
Three things have to be working here. A compatible phone, working hardware and an app. The app UX is fine but the company wants to access your location, your microphone and your photos. All of these access points are necessary for expanded use. I watched the set up video and download the app and created an account. The problems I had were many. The app kept identifying my moisture meter as a laser pointer and a pop up screen was repeatedly prompting me to make sure I wasn't in mono mode and to turn up my volume to max and an additional window about earphones. I repeatedly downloaded the app, and even changed the battery in the meter. After making sure all was good on my end I still had the same problems. I called the help line but all I got was an intro line telling me that I had reached the helpline then nothing. Dead air. No help. Not even hours of operation. I trouble shot with the app and website the best I could for an hour. In the end I returned the meter for a refund. Was it the phone? Was it the meter? Was it the app? Whose to blame? I'll never know but I walked away with a negative customer experience regardless.
Waste of Money
I don’t write reviews often but this is sooo irritating that I have to let others know. I am an insurance adjuster and I purchased the moisture meter to use while inspecting residential and commercial buildings. You cannot use this product without giving them access to your personal information. There is absolutely ZERO reason that a moisture meter would require access to my microphone, photos, videos, or camera. Maybe, just maybe, someone wants to use their phone camera for documentation but it should be an option. The attempted invasion of privacy to use a simple tool is unacceptable. Not only will I return this moisture meter but (because of this) I will NEVER purchase another tool they build. Whoever came up with the idea to steal information from the people that help their company grow should be fired. If I could give this product negative stars, I WOULD!
