What is the difference between CCTV and timelapse cameras? 2021-07-08T19:54:11+10:00

CCTV cameras are used for security purposes as surveillance equipment. They are placed in strategic positions to cover high risk areas, entry points and corridors. The cameras are used to capture unplanned activity and are often a low picture quality video feed that runs 24/7 or is triggered by activity. Post production of footage is limited, and normally not suitable quality for marketing purposes.

Timelapse cameras are used for monitoring of planned construction activity, project management reporting, progress tracking, and marketing material. They are designed to capture high quality images at regular intervals over the period of activity, allowing us to create create high resolution and quality timelapse videos, marketing content, to allow users to zoom in and view construction activity for project management purposes, and allow you to help you win the next bid project.

Can I get a ‘Live View’ from the timelapse camera over the internet? 2021-07-07T19:52:35+10:00

Yes, cameras do not have a ‘Live View’ function.

Can I access images after camera has been deactivated? 2021-07-07T19:44:12+10:00

Upon request, and before camera is deactivated, our team can arrange shuttle drive (hard drive) and back up of all images if required. Additional fees and shipping fees apply.

Can I run the timelapse camera 24/7? 2021-07-07T19:43:27+10:00

Yes, typically most cameras will be scheduled to monitor project during daylight hours 7.00am-7.00pm, work days or construction work hours. Timelapse camera can operate 24/7 if required provided the system has a stable power supply to allow it to take and upload photos during the night, and sufficient light for capturing images. If your intervals are fast, a solar panel alone may not provide enough power to shoot 24/7 continuously. Additional fees may apply for longer photo intervals, data storage and archiving.

Where do we install camera to ensure optimal field of view? 2021-07-07T19:39:30+10:00

Our timelapse experts can help inspect and mock up field of view, for suitable camera positions to capture and showcase your project. A member of our team can meet with you on location to find the ideal vantage point and/or help you do reccy of potential locations – fees may apply.

What are mounting systems available for camera? 2021-07-07T19:35:12+10:00

The most common option is to mount the unit to a pole nearby, on-site, or building rooftop. Your unit will come with a pole mounting bracket, clamps and bolts. Depending on where you are installing, you may need to rent a scissor lift or other machinery to install in hard to reach areas, working at heights or special permits, additional fees apply.
