Time Lapse Cameras monitor worksite activity remotely.

October 17, 2014

Used for remotely monitoring job sites, construction cams take photo every 15 min for each 12-hr time period and wirelessly route those photos to secure website. Project owners and developers can view, download, and email pictures at their discretion. Upon project completion, end-users are provided with time lapse video of all work accomplished. Cameras, offering 5 MP photos and zoom lens, are designed to facilitate use and installation. Read More
