  • The CS6Pak will help you organize your inspections by grouping all the associated still photos, videos, and Autolog videos as well as text notes, jobsite, and customer information into what we call a job. Jobs give you a convenient way to transfer inspection data from the CS6Pak, and they form the basis for creating Reports both in the CS6Pak and in the associated SeeSnake HQ software.
  • As you work with your CS6Pak, jobs are automatically assembled on a USB drive from the information you collect during the inspection process, making job organization easy.

No, the SeeSnake CS6Pak was designed to record your jobs to a USB thumb drive. In order to capture and save data for distribution, a USB drive must be inserted into the CS6Pak.

There are options in the SeeSnake equipment lineup that contain on-board memory in the form of SD memory cards and internal hard drives. For more information, refer to the RIDGID Website for product availability.

  • After closing current Jobs and finalizing a Report, remove the thumb drive from the CS6Pak and insert it into a USB port on a computer to view the list of files.
  • Double-click the file named report.html to view the media in a web browser. Click on the preview of each media item in the web browser to view full size photos and to playback video and Autolog video.
  • If you have the free SeeSnake HQ Software installed on your computer, you can open it to automatically import CS6Pak jobs from a USB thumb drive. We have designed both the CS6 Pakand SeeSnake HQ to work together in order to provide you and your customer with easy-to-use and powerful reporting and distribution options.
  • You can transfer your Jobs to SeeSnake HQ by simply plugging the USB drive that you utilized with the CS6Pak into your SeeSnake HQ-ready computer. When you open SeeSnake HQ, it will automatically ask you if you’d like to import your Jobs. You Can download the free software here: SeeSnake HQ
