How to Capture Photos with HOVER

How HOVER uses smartphone photos to create a 3D model.

Updated over a week ago

Good photos are critical for building an accurate 3D model. Watch this quick video to learn how to take photos with the HOVER app:

Adding additional photos

Just eight photos can create an accurate 3D model of your home (we’ll walk you through which ones to snap). However, adding additional photos of your property will only improve the final output.

Adding additional structures

More than one structure on your property like a garage or shed? Simply start a new property for each structure on the same address.

Taking photos without Internet

If you’re not connected to WiFi or cell service, capture the photos as usual. Once your phone is reconnected, the photos will automatically upload to HOVER.

As a best practice, we recommend opening the app once reconnected to make sure your photos are uploaded.

Capturing commercial buildings

When capturing a large structure like a multi-family residential property or commercial property, you’ll want to capture more than eight photos. Take as many photos as needed to include each side and corner in the photos. There is no limit to the number of photos you can upload.

Don’t Close HOVER Until You’ve Uploaded

Make sure not to close the HOVER app too fast after submitting the property. A good rule of thumb is to check if your property has been added on top of the property portfolio. Once you see that, it is safe to close the app.
