In this video, we walk you through how to import a floor plan into your digital site survey. We review two options in this video: 1) how to import a pdf and 2) how to use Google Maps to import a satellite image. System Surveyor also allows you to easily set the scale to help you create an accurate design.
Set up a site and import floor plans in no time. Import PDF, JPG or PNG or capture a picture and hit the ground running.
System Surveyor gives you options to import floor plans, to start with a blank canvas or capture a picture of a fire escape plan. Get started designing in minutes, then drag-and-drop device icons to capture requirements quickly and easily to start the security system design. Add pictures from the site in real-time, confirm the details with your client, and utilize cloud synchronization to share with your team before you even make it back to the office.
Easily set the scale for your survey to help you design accurate systems. Enabling intelligent area of coverage calculations will allow for device recommendations, so you can choose the right camera, wireless access point, projector or sensor.
Setting the scale is an important step in designing your survey and ensures that all future measurements in your site survey are accurate. System Surveyor will prompt you to set the scale right after uploading a floor plan or use our Google Map integration which will set the scale automatically.
A site survey starts with a floor plan, but you can use System Surveyor even if you don’t have a customer’s floor plan. When a floor plan isn’t available, take a picture of a fire escape plan or use the integrated Google Map feature that uses location-based services or simply enter an address to get the satellite image with automated scaling. There is no need to convert and import, you can do it directly from System Surveyor’s floor plan software and start designing in 20 seconds.
