While downloading the RF Inspector app is free, there is a subscription price of $9.95 per year to use the app. This is a substantial savings over the cost of traditional test equipment.
**IMPORTANT NOTE ** -- You must have the RF Inspector Admin software running on a server in your cable plant TO AUTHENCATE USERS AND for RF Inspector to display THE CAPTURED spectrum information. You will not be able to sign up for a subscription until the Admin Software is in place. The RF Inspector Admin Software is available for FREE for all NCTC Provider Member Companies on the NCTC website.
If your company is not an NCTC member please send an email to info@ZCorum.com for pricing and additional information about how to obtain the Admin software.
-- Save on Test Equipment and Truck Rolls --
With RF Inspector you don’t need to roll a truck to the customer’s home to view the full spectrum. You can see all video and data channels without being at the customer site, and without connecting a meter, regardless of what channel the device is tuned to. RF Inspector gathers the spectrum data from any compatible CPE and displays it on a tablet or smartphone wherever you happen to be. You can also overlay the RF signal from a second CPE device so that you can make a quick comparison of the spectrum at two different points on your cable plant.
RF Inspector allows you to significantly lower capital expenditures for test equipment, as well as save on operational costs by reducing the number and duration of truck rolls. With RF Inspector you will see the same familiar spectrum signature that you would see on a meter, including issues like:
- Excessive tilt
- Overdriven channels
- Spectrum suck outs
- RF notches
- Standing waves
- Resonant peaking
- Ingress and other interference
With RF Inspector you control who in your company can have access to a powerful, spectrum analysis tool, not your capital budget.
-- Cable Modem and Set-Top-Box Compatibility --
RF Inspector is compatible with DOCSIS cable modems and set-top-boxes that have the ability to capture the full spectrum passing through the device. This feature is supported on the hardware side by CPE that have the Intel Puma 5 and 6 chipsets with MaxLinear receivers and CPE that have these Broadcom chipsets: 3128, 3383, 33843, 3384, 3385. Compatible CPE includes cable modems and set-top-boxes from Arris, Cisco, Hitron, Motorola, Netgear, Ubee and others. Note: While the CPE hardware may already support spectrum capture, the firmware on the CPE must also be updated to a version that also supports that ability. ** Please check with your OEM to confirm hardware and firmware compatibility.

Through your smartphone, the application connects with the smart RF box (http://www.elkoep.com/products/inels-rf-control-wireless-control/rf-control-units/smart-rf-box-elan-rf-003-8488/), which further communicates with elements of iNELS RF Control.
It transmits and receives commands of up to 40 elements, and processes set programs for automatic regulation. (You can gradually expand the installation from 1 element of iNELS RF Control on up)
Thanks to bi-directional communication, it visualizes the current status ON/OFF, temperature, brightness…
The application is the central control point of your home, and lets you regulate hot water or electrical heating with the option of setting a weekly program. The function "open window detection" ensures that the heating is switched off while windows are open to ventilate. Wireless sensors visualize the temperature on the balcony, garage, gazebo, etc. The application switches such appliances as fans, garage doors, blinds, sprinklers, sockets, etc., even with the option of time setting. Lights are dimmed to create atmospheres when reading, watching movies or when hosting a party with friends. You can dim all light sources, from classic light bulbs to LED light sources (LED RGB strips). You can add to the application the video cameras iNELS Cam or Axis, and then e.g. monitor what's going on in your home ONLINE from vacation or work. A vital part of the application is its light scene function, where you can make multiple commands with a single press. For example, the departure button - by one press, you will switch off all lights and sockets in the home. Thanks to automatically obtaining the IP address with the DHCP server, you do not need to set up any networks. (if you do not have a set fixed IP address).
A suitable start for your smart home is the set “HOME UNDER YOUR THUMB” (http://www.dumpodpalcem.cz/)
The application supports the following languages: English, German, Czech and Croatian
