Performing a Virtual Inspection:

Connecting To Pasco County Citizen Portal:

  • At your scheduled inspection time, the Inspector will call you through the VuSpex App so they can see you and you can see them.
  • At this time, the Inspector will geo-locate you through the VuSpex App to ensure that your physical location is at the permit location.
  • Show the Inspector what they need:

The Inspector will ask the Contractor to show, at a minimum, the following items so the Inspector can take pictures through the VuSpex App.

For All Inspection Types, the Inspector will view the following:

  • Permit posted in the window/door/etc.
  • Affidavit for wire size/collar
  • AHRI Certificate
  • Ultra Violet protection coating data sheet
