Bosch Laser Measurer with Digital Camera
This high-tech tool allows you to zoom in on your target and snap photos of what you’re measuring.
The Bosch Blaze GLM400CL laser measuring device includes a 5.0-megapixel zoom camera that can help you find the laser dot in bright sunlight and over long distances. The tool has a 400-ft. range and Bluetooth technology, so you can transfer your measurements to a smartphone or tablet. It includes built-in functions for area, volume, and indirect measurements. A tripod mount allows for easier long-distance and indirect measurements, and a fold-out probe makes it possible to measure accurately from inside corners. In this episode of Tool Tech, host Patrick McCombe explains the features and demonstrates how the tool works.
