How to setup launch monitor as capture trigger

This article describes how to use a TrackMan, FlightScope or ForeSight launch monitor to automatically trigger a recording when hitting a shot. This is a good alternative to using a microphone when there is a lot of noise in the area such as winds or nearby golfers on the range.

Applies To
