To get started with setting up your Insta360 ONE X2, please download the JobWalk App to your mobile device and log in. Only version 2.7.2 or newer of the JWA supports the ONE X2. 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.

Note: For using the Insta360 ONE X2 camera with the JobWalk app, it is required to have an SD card inserted into the camera.

Set up and connect your Insta360 ONE X2 360° camera with the JobWalk App

Note: Before you can use any Insta360 camera with the JobWalk app, you need to register the camera in the dedicated app from Insta360. Please check the setup guide for your camera.

Only when the camera is connected via the internal WiFi network of the Insta360 ONE X2 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 X2.

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 X2.

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

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 X2 camera is low on the display of the camera.
