Time-lapse video in construction business is a powerful and resourceful tool. You might know it already. What you might be wondering is what makes it so powerful. Today, we’ll look into various benefits and efficacy of monitoring your construction site remotely.
Remotely controlled camera systems have upgraded all vital business operations from tracking work progress to monitoring maintenance of construction tools. A manager documenting all these from his/her own office can avoid the necessity to be present at the site every day. These live images are effective reporting tools for you, your site managers, your surveyors and any investors.
Remotely controlled construction time-lapse video capture may be a mouthful, but it provides you with more job satisfaction than you would imagine. Your contractors can check the live feed and monitor progress to discuss with investors and stakeholders. When a large amount of money is involved, your investors will want reports and be assured that their money is in good hands.
Time-lapse videos help connect with all your staff in a short time and address any issues you might have with their work ethic. Remember, many employees have weaker work ethics than you would expect them to. Time-lapse videos help you weed out incompetent staff.
The video system can work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This means that proper maintenance can be done remotely for uninterrupted service, ensuring perfect documentation of everything at your construction site.
Make sure to install a remotely controlled camera system that can withstand changing weathers and power transitions. This means that when your system faces extreme weather, such as heavy rain, it should be properly equipped with water resistant tools. If electric power fails, your time-lapse camera system must be able to operate on solar or wind power system. Focus on these pre-requisites when you purchase and install a construction time-lapse system.
