VuSpex Video InspectionsMobile App Instructions
Permit Sonoma provides some inspection services via VuSpex remote video technology. Our goal is to keep your projects moving.
If you are selected for video inspection, please follow the instructions to get started with your first video inspection. If you scheduled an inspection by telephone or via Permits Online, our inspection team will call the morning of your scheduled inspection date with a time and additional instructions for your video inspection to begin.
What is VuSpex?
Permit Sonoma is now offering VuSpex GO, a virtual inspection tool that provides inspection services to contractors remotely, with the use of an iOS or Android smart phone. By using VuSpex GO, our Inspectors can remotely perform a virtual inspection. VuSpex GO allows the inspector to take pictures, videos, make notes, and even uses a geo-locator to verify that the inspection location is the same as the permit address.
