The BOX – 4G Enabled & Optional 1TB HDD

The 4G BOX is the brains of our system. All hardware is DIN Rail mounted and more importantly its configured. This saves a vast amount of time on site and removes the need to outsource parts of the installation. No specialist camera installer, I.T technician or electrician is required. Its IP65 & External ready.

Finding local power on-site will always ensure a faster installation. However, a 12V DC input BOX can be made for Solar & Battery applications.

SMALL BOX

  • 4G Hardware.
  • Networking Hardware.
  • DIN Rail, Cable Glands, All Pre-built
  • 2 x Plug Sockets Trail out of 1 x 25mm Cable Glands

LARGE BOX 

  • 4G Hardware.
  • Networking Hardware.
  • DIN Rail, Cable Glands, All Pre-built
  • Room for 1TB Hard Disk Drive & NAS.
  • Room for running power into the Box.
  • Room for a small Power Distribution Unit.

Your images will always be sent to the cloud through the pre-configured 4G architecture. The 1TB Local HDD is for a local and physical back up of your construction site images. You can store up to 1 million images.

DO YOU NEED THE 1TB LOCAL STORAGE ?

The 1TB Local HDD is failover support if the camera is ever disconnected from the local cellular mast. Its safety and security you have an additional location backup of your Time Lapse Images. If your looking to save as much money as possible and your camera is in a city centre dense location then its not always necessary. We have found if a cellular mast fails in a populated area, the network ( EE, Vodafone etc ) seem to fix the problem quick. Remote locations with less error reports seem to be less priority. You may be working in a location where space is tight and you need the smaller none 1TB HDD BOX.

LOW COST INVESTMENT = PEACE OF MIND

The 1TB HDD upgrade may only cost £5-£8 extra per month, based on a 2 and 3 year project. End users would usually opt for the extra level of backup for what is a small investment.

As with all our hardware the NAS and 1TB Hard Disk Drive is pre built and configured. As soon as the 4G enclosure has power, the camera will start to archive images to the local 1TB Storage. We can even check on the NAS remotely to ensure images are filling up.

NO REQUIRMENT TO GO TO THE CAMERA. At any time simply connect a provided USB cable to the NAS and the other end to your Personal Computer or MAC and transfer the images

POWERING OUR SYSTEM – POINTS A & B

Our 4G BOX is installed at Point A, near or next to a power supply (Mains or 12V Battery). The camera location is Point B, this can be 100’s of feet away from the plug socket. Point A and B are connected together on a supplied outdoor data cable. The BOX outputs data and power over the Ethernet cable to the camera. You can run 100MTRS (330 Feet) as standard. The 4G BOX features 20mm cable glands and your outdoor cable is already cellular connected and ready to plug into your camera. AS STANDARD, the system ships with a 50 foot outdoor data cable, we can make this longer upon request.

Solar and Battery Support

Finding local power will ensure a faster installation. With our system its only our “comms box” that needs direct power. Within the comms box (grey enclosure) is a small POE switch. From that a single data cable (supplied) powers and connects the camera. Therefore the camera can be 100’s of feet from a mains power supply.

For applications where solar is the only choice we make our cellular, networking and camera hardware 12V DC Input ready. The camera and router have a combined 20W output. This is the maximum, typically its much less. Even so, a single 120W panel would be a little on the light side so we advise on 2 x 120W panels, as pictured below. Pole mounting the Panels is also an option.

Remote Monitoring Portal

construction site solar time lapse camera

WHITE LABEL – YOUR LOGO, YOUR PROJECT INFO

CUSTOM HEADER DESIGN, WE CAN REMOVE THE “IIP…” REFERENCE

** Above are only header examples and are not the full image 

VIDEO EXAMPLE OF OUR IIP PORTAL LAYOUT

The 2 x Time lapse “videos” are designed and displayed as a visual overview. These are not full stitch time lapse films. Our own-created Linux based software selects a specific image number and runs it as an overview sequence. Example: The last 24 hours, our software selects image number 5. Therefore the overview video will stitch together image 5,10,15,20,25 and so on.

LOGO & PROJECT STAMPED IMAGES SAVED FROM THE PORTAL

Clean images with no text on save to your remote cloud folder. The below image is cropped for on-page viewing. See this link for the original 4K resolution version.

THE NEW PHASE TWO PORTAL !

Lets recap first of all. The portal is optional, for a relatively low price it adds a lot of value. Without it you can still access images remotely, the portal gives you a quicker and more interactive display of captured images. Our newer Phase 2 portal has the addition of image thumbnails in view and a calendar search tool, its more advanced.

INCLUDED WITH ALL SYSTEMS

With or without the Portal, your camera system will still feature the below and has full remote management.

  • Full camera GUI access
  • Remote focus, advanced focus & optical zoom
  • 4G LTE Router Access
  • Image grab snapshot command
  • Remote time-lapse cloud folder access
  • Password protection
  • Live Camera View
  • 4G LTE SIM Portal to manage usage

PORTAL 1 – THE IIP 

Our first portal which we have run for over a year now with no reported problems. This is slowly being phased out.

  • 16:9 Remote Time Lapse Portal
  • Last 3 x Captured Images
  • Click & Save Logo stamped images
  • Clean images sent to the cloud
  • Overview Sequences, last 24 hours
  • Overview Sequences, last 30 days
  • Image Archive Folder access
  • Password Protection

PHASE 2 – OUT NOW

Available now but a steady roll out. This should be available for any systems bought after the middle of march 2018.

  • Latest image view
  • Last 24 hour view as thumbnails
  • Historical image list archive
  • Calendar search with date & time
  • Save images to share
  • Multi camera switch interface
  • Multiple simultaneous users, virtually unlimited
  • Dedicated RAID 1 server storage
