The Challenge

Unreliable technology for jobsite access

Schimenti installed its first static cameras in 2005, but they failed to meet the rigorous needs of construction professionals. Early generation cameras were not designed to stand up to the rugged demands of an outdoor environment. They also required landlines, making them problematic on a jobsite and limiting their usefulness in remote or underdeveloped areas. User interfaces were complicated and often required special software.


The Solution

Web-based construction cameras for remote visibility

With OxBlue construction cameras, anyone can have 24/7 remote access to any jobsite. Schimenti staff relies on OxBlue cameras to facilitate and expedite project meetings. Whether they’re having a general discussion about day-to-day progress or dealing with scheduling issues, every team member has full visibility into what’s happening – or what has already happened – on the jobsite.

  • "It’s definitely a worthwhile investment, especially with project teams more widespread than ever. They help cut travel expenses, provide 24/7 visibility and maintain healthy client contractor relationships."

    -Keith Murley, Manager of Information Systems, Schimenti Construction Company

  • “In the end, you had very rudimentary views using too many workarounds. It was more effort than it was worth. The learning curve and task of getting connected would be passed on to clients.”

The Implementation

Strong visual access in just one click

Schimenti has furthered the deployment
of construction cameras on its projects, and they
have become an essential part of the standard BIM (building information modeling) process. The real-time visual access means that the team and their clients can avoid having anyone react to something unexpected on the jobsite.
