Inspection camera uses An inspection camera can be used for a multitude of tasks and purposes. It is primarily used for viewing, inspecting and investigating hard-to-reach areas.
Camera cable is flexible The camera cable can extend and flex to allow the head to be positioned at any angle the user wishes. This is an ideal feature for when the camera head needs to go around corners or into curved pipes.
Camera head has a small diameter for fitting into small spaces The cable’s small diameter also means it can fit into small, confined spaces, such as through small holes in a wall, and generally reach places that an average camera would not be able to access.
Camera can take photos or record videos As an inspection camera can take pictures and record videos, it is useful when photographic evidence is needed: for example to report a problem or back up a quotation to a customer.

Machine inspections

Using an inspection camera to check an air conditioner An inspection camera is ideal for looking into a piece of machinery without having to take the object apart. Machines such as ventilators and air conditioners may sometimes stop working, and an inspection camera can often help to determine the problem.

Vehicle inspections

Using an inspection camera to check car parts It is also a useful tool for mechanics to have when working on a car or other vehicles, as the camera can look more closely at parts that are out of view, without having to dismantle anything.

Pipe inspections

Checking pipes and tubes with an inspection camera An inspection camera’s small diameter means it can be placed down pipes and tubes to check for problems, such as cracks.
Inspection camera for pipe and drain checks If your inspection camera is waterproof, then it can also be used to check down water pipes, drains and sewers for problems, such as leaks or blockages. Along with this, it can be used for domestic checks, such as down toilets, sinks or guttering.

Wall inspections

Place camera through a small hole in the wall An inspection camera can be used when plastering, painting or remodelling a wall. If a user suspects there may be mould or rot occurring behind a wall, it is easier to create a small hole and place the camera head through to check the other side than to remove larger parts of the wall.
An inspection camera can save a user time and money This can save the user both time and money when decorating their home or workplace.

Gunsmith work

Inspection cameras used by gunsmiths An inspection camera can also be used by a gunsmith to look down the barrel of a gun when making checks or repairs.

Retrieving items

Retrieve out-of-reach objects with a hook If your inspection camera comes with additional accessories, including a hook, then the camera can be used for retrieving items that are out of the user’s reach. The hook can be attached to the camera head and manoeuvred to grab hold of the item and bring it back to the user.
