Residential Capture Checklist Updated September 8, 2021
Required for Capture Service
  • Note: We take common sense steps as it relates to any virus
  • Any persons onsite and outside during capture must stay clear of windows and consistently stay out of view of 3D camera array and reflective surfaces
  • To avoid a cancellation at time of service appointment and rescheduling delays, please be ready for the appointment. We do not "standby" for cleaning and prep to be completed
  • Schedule "work from home time" contractors and other services for another time
  • Capture takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes per 1,000 square feet
  • Capture must start on the lowest level of the home, then we work our way up
  • We require that the service location be in a clean, safe condition at time of service appointment
  • Unlike a traditional photo shoot, our 3D capture technology does not allow for furniture and other items to be relocated from room to room during the capture process
  • Unless approved by your broker, we do not capture small closets, attached garages, detached garages, unfinished spaces or outbuildings
  • Remove ALL automatic spray type air fresheners -spray mist will damage our camera array
  • Inform the service provider of any room you do not want captured and close that door
  • Secure all other interior doors in the full open position. Use door stops as necessary
  • Turn ON main room interior lighting
  • Turn OFF all ceiling fans
  • Turn OFF TV’s and computer monitors

Interior Recommendations
    • Try to keep corners in small rooms and spaces clear of large furniture to allow for camera placement.  
    • Before the service appointment, complete any de-cluttering and have all furniture arranged the way you want shown in the photography
