Construction Site Cameras

Construction site cameras record videos and photos of construction activities. They provide a record of progress, enhance site security, document incidents and weather delays, and complement instrumentation. Datasheet

The camera can be controlled remotely through a web interface. You can capture stills, stream video, and schedule time lapse recordings.

Cameras can be mounted on structures or towers such as the AMTS tower in the photo at left

Time lapse sequences are created from high-resolution photos. Click the image to see a full size photo. At the scheduled time, the camera automatically pans to a preset view and captures a photo. Time lapses can be created for any number of views ( different parts of the site, for example).

Camera Applications

Record progress: Images and live streaming video provide an easy way to keep stakeholders informed.

Review operations: Time lapse sequences and video can provide insights for improving work flows, logistics, and safety.

Supplement instrumentation:
Instruments report changes. Cameras can record the activities that cause the changes.

Document weather delays: Time, date, and weather information are recorded with each photo.

Enhance Security: Site cameras can double as security cameras in the off hours.

Reduce Travel: Site cameras offer virtual site visits. Offsite engineers can pan, tilt, and zoom the camera to focus on areas of interest.

Let's Talk

It's best to talk about your requirements. Include your phone number on the form below, and we'll give you a call.


Time lapse photos are captured automatically at scheduled intervals. A typical interval might be 15 minutes. Longer or shorter intervals are possible. When you view a time lapse, you can choose to see all the photos or just one-per-day, etc, depending on your needs. The "high-speed" effect of the video below was created by specifying just one image per day. For review purposes, shorter intervals between images would be specified, effectively slowing down the video.
