You purchased a time-lapse camera, positioned it on the job site, and now it’s documenting all the work accomplished on your job site. But are you taking full advantage of everything the camera is capable of?
With an OxBlue time-lapse construction camera, you have access to all areas of your job site. Check out the nine tips below to make the most out of your camera’s system and gain a better understanding of how it operates.
1. Access your site at any time
Keep a handle on all your responsibilities with constant access to all your projects in the palm of your hand. OxBlue’s camera interface can travel with you anywhere because it is accessible from any device, including mobile – available on both Android and Apple products. You’re always on top of that day’s tasks with a 24/7 connection to the project.
2. Update everyone on the project immediately
The camera interface lets anyone schedule emails to regularly send to their teams and stakeholders to keep everyone informed about the project’s status. You have two options when sending emails. Image and time-lapse emails send every day, week, or month. Both only need to be set up once. No one has to worry about making time out of their day to send updates.
3. Personalize your camera interface to your company
Brand your camera’s interface, so anyone watching the project is reminded of your company. This is an easy form of promotion, and you only need to send your OxBlue Client Support Manager your logo, and we’ll upload it to your camera dashboard.
4. Select images by time and day
Review progress from the entire project using the timeline feature within the calendar option. It allows you to quickly scroll through each day and analyze progress as long as the camera is recording. With this feature, you’ll always know what is happening on your job site.
5. Compare & contrast progress
Choose what view works best for you to see how the project is progressing. The camera interface has multiple viewing options, such as split screen to view two dates at one time; overlay to instantly compare progress with the image; and single image to see every detail in the latest job site photo.
6. Track weather conditions
Monitor the weather data by checking the interface for updates on the current site conditions. The information changes with every image taken, so you always know if it is raining or if the sun is shining. Thanks to this data, you have accurate readings on weather delays, including daily rainfall.
7. Control how others see your project
Enhance your website content by embedding job site images or time-lapses, manage your user accounts, and restrict camera access or make it public. If you’re the account administrator, you have complete control of who sees your construction site and can access your camera. Simply, sign in and set up your preferred settings.
8. Showcase your project
Market your project to the public or use a time-lapse to keep everyone in your company informed about ongoing construction by displaying it in the lobby. This way you showcase your capabilities on the job site and receive great word of mouth.
9. Order a Professionally Produced time-lapse
At the end of a project, you can order a professionally edited video, created by the OxBlue Team. They hand-pick images from your construction camera and gives you a seamless time-lapse that will impress anyone who sees it.
