Benefits of Time Lapse Cameras

Having a time lapse camera on your construction site can create a whole host of benefits depending on your requirements. Time-lapse cameras allow you to view a lot from afar. Here are some of the benefits listed below

Reduce Site Visits: Having a time-lapse camera from Drone Site Surveys means you can view the site remotely from anywhere in the world. This will reduce your carbon footprint and save money on actual site visits.

Measure Deliverables: Our photos are taken at set intervals chosen by you. With intervals set by yourself, you can easily monitor your entire construction site progress to ensure deliverables are installed when they should be.

Nice Promotional Material: A time-lapse video is easily shared across your social media platforms. Great for showing off to existing customers, potential customers, and anyone who’s interested.

Choosing the Best Solution for Your Project

When deciding on a time-lapse service for your construction project, there are a variety of factors to consider in order that you make the right decisions and get the most effective solution for your budget/project.

There are a number of different considerations, determined by the results you require, whether a single time lapse video delivered at the end of the build or ongoing images delivered throughout the duration of the project.

There are 5 main factors to consider when choosing your construction time lapse service.

1. What type of time-lapse are you looking for? e.g. One picture per day, delivered at the end of the project for showcasing the build on your website and social media. Do you want the option to Increase shooting intervals during important moments during the build process – concrete pour, etc? Or are you looking for a solution that delivers regular updates throughout the build and can be updated on a regular basis?

2. Image Quality: Depending on how you are intending to use your time-lapse footage will determine what image quality you require to be delivered, whether 720p, 1080p, 4K, 6K, or even 8K images taken by our onsite cameras. Many sites will be ok with basic 720p or higher 1080p for online and social media viewing, while your project may require 6K Panoramic images to ensure everything is captured in the highest quality and with the correct perspective ratio/angle to cover all aspects of your site.

3. Power Requirements: As your time-lapse system will be on-site for the entire lifespan of your project, we will ensure that all power requirements are taken into account to ensure continuous delivery of the project. This information is all gathered during the FREE site survey

4. Local / Cloud Storage Options: Local storage capacity you require will be determined by factors including image quality, shooting regime, length of project duration. Our site survey completed alongside our Project Deliverables Document will ensure that the best option is chosen for your project, ensuring the end results are fit for the purpose required, whether that be a local or cloud storage solution.
Options include live streaming cameras, local storage (accessed at the end of the project), access to live feeds, remote cloud storage (that allows access to all pictures taken on the project in real-time). 

5. Connectivity and Cloud Options: Connectivity, cloud services, and the features which can be accessed remotely vary greatly between systems and might determine which is most suitable for the demands of your project.

These features include:

Status reports – to help maintain the system and ensure that everything is working as it should.
Remote configuration – changes can be made remotely to the shooting schedule etc. ensuring nothing is missed and any alterations to the build schedule are factored in.

Budget Picture Interval Option

Our budget camera options are ideal for smaller sites or indoor refurbishment projects. Our cheapest options are best suited to projects that are less than 12 weeks in length. We still offer for longer projects budget options, however, longer projects generally need more in-depth deliverables.

Here are some of the fantastic features you can expect to see from our budget option.

Image Quality: All images are captured in 720p HD quality.
Images Captured: You can have images by the minute, hour, or day.
Time-Lapse Video: Your time-lapse video is delivered at the end of your project

With this cheaper option, there is no live stream and there is no way to access these images remotely, however, these are a fantastic budget option that still delivers a great video for your project.

Standard Option

Our standard cameras offer great ultra high-quality pictures. With a variety of image qualities from 720p right up to 8K, you can get an amazing view of your site from start to finish. This type of camera can be applied either indoor or outdoor.

We also have a variety of features that allow you to track and share your progress with tenants, clients, investors etc… These can be shared via a link with your branding or even embedded onto your website. This option is also great to track your construction progress. This allows you to reduce your site visits which not only saves you time and money, it reduces your carbon footprint

However, here are some of the fantastic features you can expect to see from our standard option.

Image Quality: We can capture images in both 2K and 4K (1080p 1440p 2160p Resolutions Available)
Images Captured: You can have images by the second, minute, or hour.
Online Viewing: You can view the latest image taken online and share it amongst your team.
Live Time Lapse Viewing: You can view your time lapse directly as it’s in progress.
Embed Your Capture: You can embed the feed directly onto your website to show everyone who looks
Secure Feed: If you don’t wish to have the feed embedded directly, you can choose a password protection option. This allows you to protect this page so only authorised users can view.

High End Time Lapse Option

Our premium camera options are the best quality available for image capture. Everything we capture is in 8K resolution for absolute clarity in many different environments. We recommend this for very large sites however, this is a fantastic option for the clearest time lapse footage you could ever dream of.

The features you get are very similar to the standard option when it comes to how often you can have the photos taken and where you can display your feed. However, the big differences are the camera that takes the photos and the housing it’s encased in. As the camera is a DSLR Camera, it is very sensitive to temperature and can produce some heat. So to stop the build-up of condensation and issues with the photos taken, the housing comes with temperature control as well as thermal glass and plenty of other features to keep the unit weatherproof for very long periods of time.

Here are some of the fantastic features you can expect to see from our high-end option.

Image Quality: We can capture images in 8K which provides fantastic clarity in multiple settings.
Images Captured: You can have images at intervals set by you.
Online Viewing: You can view the latest image taken online and share it amongst your team.
Live Time-Lapse Viewing: You can view your time-lapse directly as it’s in progress.
Embed Your Capture: You can embed the feed directly onto your website to show everyone who looks
Secure Feed: If you don’t wish to have the feed embedded directly, you can choose a password protection option. This allows you to protect this page so only authorised users can view.
Live Video Stream: This is an extra added option but you can live stream a video feed from the website giving you instant live images from the site.
