Live Virtual Viewings
Updated: Sep 24, 2020
We have recently added a new feature to our virtual tours.
This was already announced on our Facebook page but we have decided to write an article explaining how it works.
This feature allows you to "host" a tour and guide people through the property while also being able to talk to them via voice or video call. All of these functionalities are handled by our server and is completely secure and password protected.
We will add this functionality to any tours made for real estate purposes or museums and landmarks, if you would like it added to another tour we will do so at no extra cost. As these are password protected we will set a password when creating the tour but it can be changed upon request.
Note: This feature will only work on Firefox and Chrome browsers. Anyone viewing an embedded tour will not notice any difference and will not be able to join.
Who Can Use This
This new feature can be used to do instant viewing without any need for the estate agent or potential buyer/tenant to travel anywhere.
These can also be used to do guided tours of museums and landmarks.
Both of these instances reduce the exposure to Covid-19. It can allow estate agents to work from home or in the future they can save time by not needing to travel.
Tour Guides will also be able to continue working from home allowing Museums and other places to still give people an experience as close to reality as possible.
Using This New Feature
To start a guided tour simply right click and a menu should appear like the one in the image above. You will only need to select "Start Live Guided Tour as Host".
After doing this you can enter a name that will be displayed or leave it blank. However to start the tour you must enter the password.
After You have started the tour a HUD will appear at the top, such as in the image below.
For someone to join the live guided tour they must open the tour using the original link that we provided you with.
Once someone clicks the icon to join the tour you will all need to enable access to your microphone, webcam is optional.
The guests can request can control, only one person can control at one time as opposed to anyone looking wherever they like.
There are them various different modes for you to use, we will leave you to experiment and decide what works best for you.
