OxBlue Donates Construction Camera for Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build

An OxBlue construction webcam captured a nine-day Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build in Atlanta.
ATLANTA, May 19, 2015 – When an OxBlue construction camera is on a jobsite, it is usually documenting a project that lasts many months, even years. But this spring, an OxBlue construction webcam captured a roughly week-long Habitat for Humanity Blitz Build in Atlanta. Public access on OxBlue’s website allows anyone from any location throughout the world to view high-resolution images and a high-definition Instant Time-Lapse Video of the project.

OxBlue camera systems are used throughout a wide range of industries to improve how construction projects are managed and promoted. The jobsite construction webcam captures virtually every moment of construction and continuously transmits high-resolution images over a cellular network. Using the construction camera interface, project team members access real-time and archived images as well as high-definition time-lapse construction videos to monitor quality and progress remotely and to keep projects within budget and on schedule.

The Blitz Build vividly demonstrates how useful construction webcams and the OxBlue construction camera interface are for tracking progress and promoting projects.

For example, archived images selected using the Visual Calendar – one of many features built into the construction camera interface – show that at the end of the day on Friday, April 24, little more than concrete for the foundation and walkways had been poured. By mid-day the following Monday, exterior painting had begun, shingles covered most of the roof, and the front porch was getting a few finishing touches. Time stamps for every image clearly show when each work day started and ended.

"We’re really happy to be a part of the project and document the hard work and generosity of everyone involved. I hope they’ll view the project on our website so they can see and really appreciate what they accomplished."

Chandler McCormack, OxBlue CEO

Habitat for Humanity projects depend on volunteers and donations. Like the construction camera and cellular service donated by OxBlue, the time, skills, and other resources that made the Blitz Build possible came from volunteers in the community, including members of the Peachtree Presbyterian Church. This project marks the Church’s 151st Habitat for Humanity build.

OxBlue construction camera systems come complete with all hardware, cellular data connection, easy-to-use technologies, and three kinds of time-lapse construction videos. To learn more about OxBlue construction cameras and time-lapse videos, please contact OxBlue at (888) 849-2583.
