Frequently Asked Questions
What is Facade Inspector by H3 Zoom.AI?
FAÇADE INSPECTOR is an intelligent building inspection platform that automatically identifies defects and anomalies on images and video stills.
What is unique about the solution?
Our proprietary machine learning algorithms speed up the process of anomaly identification and provides an overview of defects on web-based dashboards. Automated generated reports in various formats are also available for download highlighting issues found on a building in a fraction of a time compared to current manual inspection processes.
How is it different from the existing solutions in the market?
Most solutions in the market are manual and require expensive Gondolas, Rappels or cranes. The rare few that do engage drones are still very manual requiring manual inspection of the images and data collected. H3 Zoom.ai automates the interpretation of the data and reporting through automated workflows reducing the time taken by over 80%. Our clients have experienced over 50% cost savings and most importantly mitigate safety challenges with work-at-height.
What type of support do I have access to?
What is the best way to start using the AI-software?
Upload your aerial images onto our platform and an automated workflow kicks in to analyze the images. View a comprehensive report of your building, gain insights, and take remedial action. Do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.

If you’re in a market outside of this, we are happy to connect you to our operational partners in Australia, Brazil, and Hong Kong.

Privacy and Copyright Protection
H3 Zoom’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that H3 Zoom can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the Singapore Digital Copyright Act.
Your Content in our Services
Certain features of the Service may permit users to generate or post content, including messages, reviews, video, maps, models, folders, data, text, photographs, images, and data gathered by a drone or device (“User Content”). You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that User Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
To provide our Service, we do require a license to your User Content, so that we can store your data on our servers, process it and transmit it to you: when you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you hereby grant to H3 Zoom (and those we work with) a non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, store, reproduce, process, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your User Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating and improving our Services, and to develop new products and services. This license continues even if you stop using our Services.
Why do we need these rights? The following situations are a few examples of where we would need these rights:
- In order to receive your uploaded images, we need the right to store and transmit the data.
- We need the rights to store, transmit, process, modify the user content (images) in order to turn your images into 2D reports and 3D models.
- If you would like to see the resulting maps/models and share them with people you have selected using H3 Zoom, we need the rights to transmit, display and distribute your user content.
- Again - you own the Intellectual Property of the data, that means we can’t share or distribute this data without your permission. But we need these rights to provide the service.
User Content Representations and Warranties
You are solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing User Content. By posting and publishing User Content, you represent, and warrant that: you are the creator and owner of, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and to authorize Drone Deploy and users of the Service to use and distribute your User Content; and your User Content, and the use thereof as contemplated herein, does not and will not: (i) infringe any third-party right, including any intellectual property, privacy or proprietary right; or (ii) slander, defame, libel, or invade the right of privacy, publicity or other property rights of any other person.
User Content Disclaimer
We are under no obligation to edit or control User Content that you or other users post or publish, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. H3 Zoom may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against H3 Dynamics with respect to User Content.
