Where do I place the camera in a property?

Your first scan can be from anywhere in the property.

The first scan is different from the Start Position, where visitors in 3D Showcase start. You can set the Start Position to be wherever you want. Learn more.

For each new scan, place the camera 5 to 10 ft (1.5 to 3 m) away and within a line-of-sight from a previously scan. This is so there is enough overlap to align the new scan to a previous scan.

As you scan the property, top-down map appears in the Matterport Capture app.

Continue scanning until you have filled in all of the black areas on the map.
