Tips for Use
- Our technicians take screenshots of what they would like to include in their reports or archives. These photos are then saved directly to your device for your customer file.
- Other times you simply record a 360 video while moving rods slowly up the flue and then review it after bringing the camera back down the chimney.
- While you can look around, once you have a particularly clear angle with good spacing to the walls of the chimney you can simply spin the rod in your hand gently and pause for any shots you need or want to take
- Use with a phone allows for one handed operation of the camera and screenshot capabilities. iPad screenshots often take two hands which takes longer. We generally screenshot images on our phones and then airdrop them to our iPads to complete our reports
- If masonry systems are prevalent in your area consider getting the CAT6 cable as the WIFI connection for live preview may drop more frequently as some substances used in masonry at various times in history blocks WIFI signals almost completely. See best practices for how to work around this issue
