To get started with setting up your Insta360 ONE R, please download the JobWalk App to your mobile device and log in. Only version 2.6.41 or newer of the JWA support the ONE R. Make sure that you are not using any version older than that.
You can learn more about how to work with the JobWalk App in the dedicated article.

Please be aware that at the moment the ONE R is only compatible to connect with the iOS version of the JWA. We are working on making the Android version compatible as well.
Currently, the following tutorial only applies to iOS users.

Set up and connect your Insta360 ONE R 360° camera with the JobWalk App

Only when the camera is connected via the internal WiFi network of the Insta360 ONE R camera, you can use your smartphone with the JobWalk App to capture photos on-site and place them directly on a sheet.

Connecting from within the JobWalk App (recommended process)

Start the JobWalk App and download/update an existing project or create a new project. Add a new floor plan/sheet or select an existing sheet of the project. Tab on the sheet to place the first photo. Follow the instructions below or on the app screen for setting up the corresponding camera connection for your Insta360 ONE R.

Connecting before starting the JobWalk App

Alternatively, it is also possible to first establish the connection of your mobile device with the camera and open the JobWalk App in a second step. This way you can directly start capturing on your project. Simply follow the steps below for connecting to the Insta360 ONE R.


When editing an existing project, please make sure to have your HoloBuilder project downloaded/updated before connecting to the camera.

Insta360 ONE R setup

Make sure the camera and phone are fully charged before going on-site to avoid any bad surprises during the 360° photo capture process. You can see an indication of whether the battery level on the Insta360 ONE R camera is low on the display of the camera.

NOTE: In order to connect the Insta360 ONE R to your device, you need to have the Insta360 ONE R App installed on the device. Make sure that you have the app installed before proceeding with the tutorial.

  1. Press the power button to turn on your ONE R.
  2. Turn on the WiFi and Bluetooth on your phone.
  3. Open the ONE R App on your mobile device.
  4. Tap the camera icon at the bottom of the app homepage and select Connect now in the WiFi panel.
  5. Then, choose your ONE R camera in the WiFi list and follow the onscreen instructions to connect your device.
  6. After successfully connecting the camera, you can open the JobWalk App and start capturing - learn more.

NOTE: When capturing with an Insta360 camera, you will notice that the camera switches into Standby mode after 10 seconds of not being actively used. So far, it is not possible to turn off this feature. Just keep in mind that this happens whenever you are capturing photos on a job site.
