MC88 features a high-resolution camera
with wireless jobsite monitoring and a
surveillance camera that offers 16 megapixel still images for project documentation.
It produces professional-grade, time-lapse
videos along with full 1080p streamed and
recorded video. It's useful for managing
jobsite security and tracking progress.
Another monitoring camera system
option is the MC78. It captures clear HD
images up to eight megapixels. It features
time-lapse video recorded at desired rates
that can be played back at any rate. It also
gives contractors access to their jobsites
from anywhere at anytime.
This camera's recordings are best used to
track construction progress, visitors to the
site, safety measures and equipment. Due
to its portability, the MC78 allows viewing
from different angles. It also offers live view,
live streaming and DVR recording.
The fourth and least expensive solution
is the MC26 wireless time-lapse camera. It
is designed for short-cycle projects and jobsites with a smaller footprint. Self-installed
and solar-powered, it has up to 5 days of
integrated battery backup. The camera captures HD six-megapixel images and is used
to schedule on-going time-lapse recording.
It covers up to two hours per month of live

Being an innovator, Gaw is already experimenting with potential future applications
for his camera systems. "Customers want
different ways to capture imagery for their
projects," he says. "So we're heading in a couple of new directions for more ways to collect
the imagery. Drones might be one of those."

Sensera Systems has tested flying drones
over construction sites to collect images.
However, it's an expensive ordeal and
drones are prohibited from flying over
heavily populated areas like cities. This idea
will require some tweaking.
Another application that Gaw is investigating deals with using his cameras in flood

areas. "We already have many customers
using their cameras for flood monitoring,"
But his customers, especially fire departments and water departments, want the
cameras to do more than simple monitoring. They want the cameras to alert them
when water levels reach certain heights.
