The Challenge

Restricting access while maintaining clear oversight

As one of the fastest growing companies, Compass works on top-secret and mission critical facilities that they must keep secure. Although they work with industry-leading brands, they needed an easy way to keep their clients' data center projects under wraps while still sharing access with authorized contractors and partners. Their dedicated to client anonymity and sustainable building meant setting rigourous standards for jobsite oversight.

Construction security through web app

The Solution

Verification with award-winning energy-efficient cameras

The company leverages the Cobalt camera, the most energy-efficienty and solar-friendly camera on the market. Cobalt uses less than half of the typical wattage of a webcam and comes with the highest resolutions available. Compass also uses both exterior and interior cameras to act as “fact-checkers” for what happens on-site. OxBlue's additional admin functionality allowed Compass to easily restrict views to key stakeholders, maintaining client privacy and security. As progress continues inside, Compass uses a pan-tilt-zoom camera for live streams and motion detection for added security.

  • “It’s great that you can easily control who is allowed to view cameras with a distribution list in the OxBlue web app. We’re still able to securely share visuals through OxBlue’s Procore integration so our corporate teams, general contractors, subcontractors and design team can have easy remote access.”

  • "OxBlue helps reduce travel time for our off-site personnel which is not only a cost savings, but a better work environment so people do not have to travel away from their families."

  • “OxBlue generated time-lapse videos help provide important marketing data that not only saves the company money but helps to earn money through signing on new clients. The cameras capture that “wow” factor. For us, going from an old farm field to an active data center campus was really neat. The images tell the story for us.”
