CloudX: Rebuilt From the Ground Up

Launching our CloudX time lapse platform in 2018 was a major milestone for us in our vision of helping businesses to capture difficult footage with a simple workflow. We were finally able to provide a way for you to remotely monitor your system via the platform, get a status updates via email and even automatically upload your images to the cloud and create a time lapse video from your images. 

But we knew that CloudX could be improved. While it was a strong product, we felt that the platform was not quite up to par with what we ultimately had in mind. Simply put, we wanted to provide more, for less. So we continued working to improve CloudX. We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve released an all new CloudX, built entirely from the ground up.  

The new CloudX has all of the original features but it also boasts: 

  • Advanced automatic timelapse building functionality. This includes advanced control in building your  time lapses such as skipping images, skipping weekends, changing frame rates. 
  • A customer dashboard to quickly see what's happening at a glance. 
  • Automatic firmware revisions can be pushed to UpBlink and BlinkX via CloudX. 
  • Flexible sharing options and better subscription management. 
  • More troubleshooting information accessible by our support crew for those accounts needing assistance. 

The best part? We’ve dropped the price of CloudX Pro to $49 per month instead of the original $89 per month. 



And we’re not done yet. There are a few key features that are still in development. Soon, you will be able to update your schedules remotely, receive advanced notifications that analyze your logs being uploaded and will send you alerts. And finally, there will be a more advanced integration with Procore. We will continue to evolve as the market evolves.

In the future, we’ve got our eye on integrations and compatibility. Big data is becoming increasingly important, therefore, flexible and seamless integrations will become the norm. We'll be working on integrating with the tools you need. We're also working on compatibility with other cameras so stay tuned.

Here’s a breakdown of all CloudX options.

Five (More) Construction Time Lapse Mistakes to Avoid

Construction time lapse is a strong tool for documenting a build, recording progress, updating stakeholders, and marketing your services. Last year, we featured an article highlighting five common long term time lapse mistakes to avoid. But that list certainly was not an exhaustive one. Here are five more time lapse mistakes to avoid, specifically on construction time lapse projects.

A collaborative research project in Long Island Sound uses Blink to document and study the interactions between oyster farms and aquatic wildlife. Learning what fish and mobile invertebrates (crabs, shrimp, snails, etc.) use the farm gear as habitat provides a better understanding of the benefits an oyster farm provides to the environment.

Matthew C. Grammer recently shared a video he created for his client, Republic Property Group, a Texas based real estate developer which manages a few communities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The company was working on Walsh, a budding development west of Fort Worth. Grammer was tasked with producing videos to showcase the initial stages of the community. As part of this, he captured the construction of two buildings: a marketplace and an activity center.
