Thermal Imaging Camera Helps Find Hidden Damage in Your Home

(NewsUSA) - Spring is in the air, which means it's not only time to start deep cleaning your home, but ensuring it's protected against damage caused by Old Man Winter.

For homeowners who have gone through especially harsh weather (a shout-out to the Northeast and New England seems to be in order), the spring thaw that occurs from record-breaking snowfall can result in irreparable water damage if not taken care of properly.

For roofs, it's important to check for ice damming. This happens when snow on the upper portion of your roof melts and freezes on the lower half, creating a wall-like formation around the gutter. Water then becomes trapped behind the ice dam and can leak into your home. In addition, water-stained ceilings, drywall and damp areas in the basement, cracks in concrete floors and musty, wet odors can also mean trouble and should be checked.

To help find these sometimes-hard-to-see signs, you might want to consider investing in a thermal camera. This pocket-size device plugs into smartphones and puts technology that was once unaffordable into consumers' hands.

It works like this: all objects radiate heat or "infrared light" that can be seen by true thermal cameras even in the absence of visible light. While this technology has primarily been used by law enforcement and the military, one company has brought the cost down to an affordable price for the everyday consumer.

Seek Thermal, a California-based technology company, has created a thermal camera that works with a free app to turn invisible heat energy into an image that can be seen from your phone or tablet. This, the company says, allows homeowners to easily expose and record water damage, so something can be done about it before having to make costly repairs.

For one Boston custom home builder, the Seek Thermal camera has made a difference in how he approaches his business.

"With the Seek camera we're able to isolate the exposure without cutting holes in the sheetrock," says Chris Rapczynski, president of Sleeping Dog Properties. "Now, with the thermal imaging camera, we're able to quickly walk in, assess whether the water has infiltrated a wall cavity, and all of that can be done in minutes.

"Having a thermal imaging camera bridges the gap between applying some effort and having certainty the effort that's been applied is the fix," says Rapczynski. "And the clients just want the fix."

Hate Waiting? Businesses Target Improved Customer Experience

Lifestyles - Mon, 04/06/2015 - 10:32am

(NewsUSA) - Often the most frustrating aspect consumers experience with businesses isn't directly related to the service or product itself, but instead the long wait time to receive it.

Restaurants, automotive services, bowling alleys and beauty salons are all examples of businesses that can have extended -- and sometimes unspecified -- wait times. Business owners are noticing that this can be a major annoyance to their customers, which can result in a negative consumer experience from the start.

Now, some business owners are taking action with the help of Waitlist Me.

Waitlist Me, previously known as NoshList, makes managing a waitlist simple and uses text and call messages to notify customers when it is their turn. The service is broadening its reach to work in all types of businesses, and runs across multiple platforms, including iPads, Android tablets, smart phones and computers.

"Waitlist Me has been proven to reduce walkaways, increase revenues and improve customer satisfaction," says Brian Hutchins, Head of Product for Waitlist Me. "At the end of the day, everyone wins."

Unsurprising, then, is that Waitlist Me is even catching on in the health care industry -- where the average time it takes to see a doctor is approximately 23 minutes, and anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours during cold and flu season. In this industry, having technology at your fingertips to help plan your time could be a godsend. For example, the app has made a difference for both patients and physicians for one Wisconsin-based primary care facility.

"We expected the patients would appreciate the new waitlist options, but we didn't anticipate that the physicians would also be happier, because the patients are happier when they get into the room," said Kelly Tolson, director of operations at Wisconsin-based ProHealth Care. "That has been a very nice surprise."

In addition to improving waitlist experiences, the app also offers easy-to-use features. Premium users can now customize and enable feedback surveys to go out after customer visits. Customers can easily send quick numerical ratings back in text messages or take surveys to rate their experiences in more detail, leave comments and even request a manager to contact them about their visit.
