PhotoTalk Overview

This article details the PhotoTalk feature and how to use it on SeeSnake® CSx monitors, the HQx Live mobile app, and the CS65.

What is PhotoTalk?

PhotoTalk media combines audio commentary with a single image file in an email-friendly format. This allows you to capture inspection highlights at a fraction of the size of standard video.

How to Use PhotoTalk

CSx Monitors and the CS65

The photo key captures photos and PhotoTalk media. The first time you press it, the monitor asks you to configure the photo key. You can choose to capture a photo with a short press (<1 second) and a PhotoTalk with a long press (>3 seconds) or vice versa.

To change the default (short press) photo key behavior, go to the Menu. Under User profile settings, select Photo key action.
