How to inspect on site with the HG Companion

See what our customers are saying:

I am continually and thoroughly amazed and impressed with the level of support I get from HomeGauge every time I call for help. I always get a real person that can always solve my problem. I just talked to Kristin and she knew immediately what I needed and assisted me quickly. You have really put together a great team and the concept of immediate help is outstanding. I wish you would sell it to Charter Communications and several other companies that don't have a clue.

Oh, by the way, your products also work great. I recently bought the HG Companion and it was easy to get started and I use it all the time. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Doug Mickle, ASHI Certified Inspector, HouseChek Inspections

Being a long time user of the desktop version, I have been carrying a laptop for years and taking pictures with a camera or my phone. I knew about HG Companion, but I was afraid to try it. Well no more! In the past it would take me almost two hours to finalize a report, with downloading the pictures, scrolling and posting, it was a daunting task. Today I used HG Companion for two inspections, I uploaded them during travel from one inspection to the next and during my drive home. When I got home I completed and uploaded both in less than twenty minutes! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!

Finger friendly reporting to quickly check off items and drop in auto-comments.

Record audio bytes at each item for those wanting to finish up at the office or have someone else complete the report.

Hints and Tips for using the HG Companion

  • The orange toolbar at the bottom of the screen is for navigating through the report on Android. This menu appears at the top on the iPhone / iPad.
  • If there is not a navigation button at the bottom of a screen on the Android, then use the Android Back button.
  • If you cannot figure out how to do an action like exclude a Style and Material, try to use the Android menu button or long press on the item.
  • You will need to use similar menus used to move the templates over and to move the reports back and forth. From the HG Companion Home screen, select Menu -> HG Services -> Send Report To Cloud. Then download it to the desktop using the menu HG Services -> Get Report from Cloud. The Cloud transfer for reports is a temporary holding place to move your reports around. This is not permanent storage. Your report is permanently stored after finishing it on the desktop and uploading it using HomeGauge Services.
  • You can move reports over manually with an Android device, but this method is not recommended or supported. Here is the info on manually moving reports. On the iPhone/iPad manually moving reports is not supported.
