Plan the work. Work the plan. Identify your desired outcome and location/project details (duration, power source, schedule, wifi access etc.) to help guide your kit build. Our time lapse calculator is a great resource for this.

 

Once you know the type of power you'll use, how much of It you need, and wifi connectivity requirements, you're ready to make your purchase. We offer several great customizable pack solutions to ensure you get exactly what you need.

 

Testing Is the most crucial step, yet Is the step most often overlooked. Plan for ample testing within your workflow for a seamless project every time. Read about five common mistakes people make (hint: lack of testing is a big one!). 

 

With your kit In hand and your testing successfully complete, you're ready to deploy your time lapse solution. Unsure of the best way to mount? We have several options for you to choose from.

 

The days of cumbersome monitoring and image retrieval are long gone. Tap Into Blink Email for basic monitoring stats. Or step up your game with CloudX or CloudX Pro. Did someone say automatic image upload to the cloud?
