Encased in a rugged enclosure, every element of the camera is engineered to give developers, owners, and general contractors crystal clear images and HD video of their projects. Additionally, the camera’s built to be reliable in the harsh conditions found on the job site, including environmental controls to keep the camera’s temperature regulated.
