Timescapes is a New Zealand-founded and operated start-up capturing real-time visual data from construction projects using intelligent, high-resolution cameras and an intuitive web-based platform. With this innovative technology, customers are able to track construction progress, communicate milestones and stay connected to their job site. This solution is transforming the way construction projects are being delivered throughout New Zealand and is set to launch globally.

The Timescapes Camera Enclosure is the perfect blend of form and function. The sleek, minimalist design stands out from its competitors and is setting a new standard for the industry.

Key features:

- Weather-resistant: The camera system is mounted in a variety of places, and is exposed to a range of environmental conditions . It has been designed to be mounted and withstand high winds of up to 250km/hr for extended periods of time. The camera enclosure is fully waterproof with silicone seals on the front and back ensuring the camera and electronics inside are safe from water damage and meet the IP66 requirement.

-Durable: Made from premium materials such as aluminium which ensures longevity and protects the camera and electronics inside from the elements and any knocks that it might encounter on a construction site which are inevitable.

-Easy to install: The quick-release plate connects the enclosure to a sturdy ball mount and bracket with minimal tools and is fully adjustable to any position.

- Crystal clear images: The front glass is coated with Anti-Reflective and Hydrophilic coatings to ensure crystal clear images in all weather conditions.

-Solar-powered: A solar panel that can be separately positioned to maximise sunlight and plugs into the enclosure allows freedom to position the unit anywhere with no restriction of being close to an external power source.

Remotely controlled - The camera system is connected to the network to allow the camera to transfer data in real-time and be operated remotely, minimising the need to open the unit and risk exposing the internal components to the elements.

The Polycarbonate back cover is removable, allowing access into the enclosure for setup and servicing. An internal chassis slides out of the enclosure to secure a high-definition camera into the enclosure and house all the electronics.
