Purchasing hardware for AVATOUR hosting: Insta360 ONE RS

We recommend buying a complete Avatour kit from us, but if you plan to buy your own hardware, here's what you need for an Insta360 ONE RS setup.

For ease-of-use and quick deployment, pre-assembled and tested Avatour kits are available directly from us (contact sales@avatour.live for more information). However, if you want to acquire your own hardware, here's a list of the components you'll need for a setup based on the Insta360 One RS camera (for use with compatible Android mobile devices only).

CAUTION: The One R and One RS cameras are available in several different bundles, some of which DO NOT INCLUDE the 360 lens! For Avatour use, be sure to purchase the Twin Edition or the 360 Edition. Other packages (the 4K edition or 1-inch edition) leave out the 360 lens and will NOT work with Avatour.

1. Camera and required accessories

The Insta360 One RS comes with a GoPro-style mount and a cold-shoe adapter, but nowhere to put your phone. The minimum required accessories include the connecting cable and a phone/camera mount similar to the one listed below.

NOTE: Only transfer cables procured directly from Insta360 are compatible for Avatour usage. The Insta360 cables use a proprietary wiring connection, and a standard USB-C cable WILL NOT WORK.

Please contact us at support@avatour.live if unable to locate the Insta360 transfer cables, we keep them in stock and can ship directly.

2. Recommended Mounting Hardware

Most users will require a stand and mount for the camera. A good option is the combination of a mini tripod base and an extendable selfie stick, as linked below. However, any standard 1/4"-20 mount will work. See our article on alternate mounting options for alternatives.

3. Bluetooth Audio Device

With an Insta360 Avatour setup, the audio would come through the speaker on the Android device. If noise cancellation and additional clarity are needed then the following Bluetooth audio options have been tested and can be paired with your device via the Settings menu.

4. Charging & Battery

You'll need to manage power for these devices. If you intend to operate longer than the ~80 min provided by either camera's standard battery, we recommend ordering a backup battery, but be advised that swapping batteries requires a full disassembly of the camera mount, which will interrupt your session significantly.
