Construction Time Lapse is no longer just about marketing and progress capture. In the past, the technology involved inserting an SD card into the camera and hoping it would capture the images. You would only know whether it worked after completing the project. However, with the advent of the cloud connection and the upload of images, users can use the images to monitor the visual progress remotely. As the visual progress developed, so did the ability to integrate with construction management platforms. Now users can view progress and leverage the data with AI, generating actionable insights from the job site. This article will explore the five must-have features of an evolving construction time lapse camera.
The blog showcases a customer project where a warehouse is converted into a factory for manufacturing universal electric car chargers. The customer, Christopher Blumenshine, used UpBlink and a GoPro 11 on the "auto" setting to capture the time lapse footage. Mounting the time lapse system was a challenge, but the customer creatively used a tall ladder and zip ties to secure the unit in the desired location. A valuable tip shared by the customer is to set shorter intervals for capturing more images, allowing for flexibility in the editing process. The blog also mentions upcoming projects, including capturing an oil rig field and a college campus through time lapse. The customer's work showcases the power of time lapse in documenting progress and change.
