OptiShot cannot be used in direct sunlight.
OptiShot is designed to be used indoors and must have the proper lighting conditions for its infrared sensors to function accurately. If your simulator is reporting inaccurate or nonsensical swing results, the most likely cause is your lighting environment.
ACCURACY DEPENDS ON PROPER LIGHTING.
AVOID SUNLIGHT AND ALL OTHER SOURCES OF INFRARED LIGHT.
Because OptiShot uses infrared sensors to provide key shot data and swing analysis, it should only be used indoors as the light from the sun causes inaccurate results.
Below are some lighting guidelines.
- OptiShot works best when used in a room with LED or in some cases fluorescent lighting.
- Warehouse lighting such as Sodium Vapor or Metal Halide also work very well.
- Overhead light is generally better than light from the side of the room.
- Do not use Incandescent or halogen lights. Avoid sunlight and all other sources of infrared light as even small amounts will affect performance.
- Shadows from objects such as the club shaft and that of the golfer also may affect performance. Use multiple light sources to cancel out shadows.
