Alan Carson has developed a new app that may revolutionize the home inspection profession. Because of this new creation, we place Alan is a class with Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg. Jobs didn't invent the cell phone, music player or computer, but he did put them into one easy-to-use machine that revolutionized our lives. Zuckerberg didn't invent chat rooms, social media or sharing inane conversations, he just combined them in one convenient, ubiquitous product. 

Like those two innovators, Alan did not invent inspection photography, nor was he the first to categorize deficiencies in properties. But, because of his years of experience, he's organized over 10,000 photographs, coupled with descriptions of the underlying problems they depict, and produced an app that's both intuitive and germane to our profession. 
It's called "Insight by Carson Dunlop", and it's available exclusively to ASHI members for a limited time only...that means it's FREE right now!

Here's how it works. First, go to to register. A short video explains what the app does. Then download the app (for Android or Apple products) at

Once you've downloaded the app, just open it and click on one of the menu items (e.g. Roofing or Electrical). A list of deficiencies comes up along with photos that depict those issues. This is an app that both experienced and newer inspectors can use when they're struggling to identify and explain a problem area. It's about as simple to use as can be, and a wide range of information is right at your fingertips. Whether you want to know about swamp coolers or boilers, you'll find what you need, when you need it. This is a deal you cannot pass up. Try it - we're sure you'll like it.
