NFPA is working on a new Standard for these if you weren’t aware.  It’s still in draft form but I think you might be able to see it for comment. It’s #915.

With my Chief’s support, I offered it to my 4 small group homes last fall as I’m very familiar with their buildings and they are very good on their maintenance. They declined and were more comfortable with me being on site.

Aside from the VOs, at this time we only manage to just keep up with complaint and request (no routine inspections). Considering these are always buildings we have either never been in or it’s been a long time, I personally wouldn’t be comfortable doing remote on an unfamiliar building.
