Construction WiFi camera by EyeFi Pro X2 and Brinno camera

It’s been common to hire a Construction camera service company to set up DSLR cameras, WiFi and record the construction job site daily images, perhaps a remote monitoring and Cloud storage if affordable. I’m personally preferring a much more “less luxury “way in documenting related construction site videos and images.

The #1 thinking is “Is it really necessary to record the construction site by DSLR”?

The purchase cost or rental cost is one thing. What really matters is the DSLR complicated camera setup, settings for time lapse video and it also difficult to ask the job site works to take over. So you may foot the service company bills monthly or try to train your job site people to operate the DSLR.

Learned about the limited Shutter life of DSLR? It seems that the average statistic shutter life is around 100,000 shots. 100k shots is probably a big number for ordinary photo shots but it can be “toasted” so easily by the time lapse mode. Here is a good example: taking photos every 1 min then 1×60 min x24 hrs=1,440 shots per Day, Your DSLR will just burst in 69.44 days (100,000 divided by 1,440) which is only TWO Months!

My advice is

DO NOT use DSLR for Construction camera recording. It’s too expensive to pay the service companies , too hard for the job site workers to use and can on;y work for Two months.

Lesson learned: Will you drive your Ferrari from NYC to LA?

2nd thinking: Is there any other in expensive and easy to use solutions for the Construction job site workers?

There are some rugged and Point of View cameras like GoPro or Brinno to be a smarter choices for the construction sites. These POVs are all features like

  • Rugged with water proof cases
  • Wide angel lens (>120 degrees, Field of View)
  • Default external DC power input ( ensure long term shooting)
  • Time lapse video Photography ( you can set up the camera by different Time intervals, say taking one photo every 1 minute )

GoPro is, however, little constrained by not be able to DC IN if wearing the water proof case. I can fix this by my DIY water proof box.

What consistently bothers me is the Night shots capabilities.

The Brinno camera is doing great at low light photography.( which is essential at the construction sites Night Shots)

WiFi?

Brinno Construction camera for not providing WiFi for Construction job site remote monitoring was a big blemish.

It’s cool now by using the Eye Fi card–Pro X2

3 steps DIY Wifi construction camera here if using Eye Fi card + Brinno TLC200:

  1. DC IN thru Micro USB on Brinno TLC200 ( The Brinno Camea is said to live up to 78 days by batteries but insert your DC IN if using with Eye Fi card)
  2. Download and Upgrade the latest Firmware from Brinno web site ( 1.02.3 or later for TLC200 and TLC200 f1.2 including BCC 100) (  version 1.01.4 or later for TLC200 Pro)

The project can most efficiently and economically achieve their building program goals through the use of  DIY setup Construction cameras IN DIFFERENT PERIODS AND PLACES
In general, adequate deployment of Construction Cameras will be able to:
-Ensure project success (Performance)
-Accelerate the physical construction (Schedule)
– Reduce the cost of the project (Cost)
-Compare the virtual  conceptual design with the actual physical excutions ( virtual vs real )
– Decrease the overall time required for planning and design ( Project life cycle management)

-Frame the framwork for the overall material resource plan

– Provide continuity and improve project coordination throughout both the design and construction phases.

– Provide you more continuous control of the project; you are an active team member and approve all critical decisions affecting cost and schedule.

 

The never miss areas and activities for the construction cameras: What do you want from Construction cameras ?
(1 )foundation Grouting
(2) Piling
(3) Diaphragm wall
These construction camera videos are basically for:
1.Government inspections–Compliances ( labors (human rights) + Firefighters (industrial safety)+ Construction regulations )
2.Internal use ( workers+gears+ mass equipment) utilization and efficenecy
3.Employer(land owners) &Subcontractors (acceptance terms, performance review or even the Construction contract management )
4.Future sales presentations for Corporate overview

 

 Typical Brinno construction cameras can be set up like the following:

(1) Install the Brinno construction camera at 4 corners of jobsite like this: Setting: time interval: 1 min, with Eye Fi card setup and DC IN Q’ty:4

 

(2) Portable or Specific target recording for ( grouting, piling,): time interval 1-2 sec, Battery powered.  q’ty: 4
