100% Inspection Coverage

Traditionally, thermal inspections have been done using hand-held devices. This manual process is both time consuming and only provides results for a small portion of your site. It also does not provide uniformity across multiple sites or year-over-year.
With Sherlock™ Platform, 100% of your solar site is inspected and documented. In addition, we provide uniform data year-over-year and across multiple sites.
