Construction Time Lapse


What's included


Gallery & Storage

Want to show off your time-lapse footage? Now you can thanks to our portal. Whether you'd like to keep your footage private or release it to the public, the choice is yours. Our custom portal offers one-click videos of the last 150 photos taken. These high-resolution images are uploaded directly to Dropbox, making it easier to share high-quality time-lapse footage with staff, or for use on social media.

Solar Powered

Our time lapse systems are completely self-sufficient, meaning they don't rely on 240v power sources, WiFi, or any other cabled connections. Our time lapse systems are 100% solar powered, giving us the ability to take a photo up to once every 5 minutes without the need for constant power supplies. The industry average for time lapse is one photo every 10 minutes.

4G Uploading

Our time lapse systems utilise Telstra 3G/4G network in order to offer fast uploads after the photo is taken. If the network is unavailable at the time, the system will complete a comprehensive scan of both the SD card and onboard SSD to detect which photos have and haven't been uploaded to Dropbox or the portal and upload those that haven't been.

Time Lapse Projects


We have used On Time Lapse for several custom home builds, the time lapse cameras give us the ability to create excellent marketing material but, also allow our project managers to monitor progress without the need to visit site, saving us time and money. It’s also a great way for our clients to receive progress updates. I also love that the weather information is stamped on each photo in the online portal. We also use their CCTV cameras to help protect our job sites.

Meet Our Generation II Time Lapse Cameras

The Gen II Time Lapse cameras are feature reach and include the latest updates to match with our Sony ZV-E10 series cameras to make the perfect pair. The GenII features a SD card less system by using the latest type C connection to save images directly to the onboard solid state drive. Along with a brand new features for video generation and our all new yellow branding, keep an eye out for our GenII units on a construction site near you. Our building time lapse systems use the latest technology to reliably captcha photos in pretty much any conditions. With IP66 waterproof housings complete with sun visors and the ability to fit wide angle lenses inside the housing to captcha more field of view.

We choose Nikon, Canon & Sony cameras along with Sigma or Tokina lenses for reliability and durability, for most projects we fit a Sigma 10-20mm lens giving great field of view without the fish eye effect that many wide angle lenses generally inherant.

Mounting our cameras are generally easy thanks to the 3-axis universal mount that offers small or big adjustment options while giving us the flexibility to dyna-bolt onto roofs, walls or even mount directly to light poles or custom made poles. Our team have partnered with fabricators throughout Australia to offer custom made poles specific to your location.

Off-Grid Power

Solar Charging

Any outdoor building time lapse project will see the use of our 20watt solar panels that are extremely durable and offer piece of mind when installing in those hard to access locations. The solar panels come complete with a heavy duty galvanised bracket to make mounting to small poles, walls and many other surfaces a breeze.

Onboard our building time lapse systems are two battery supplies, one being the inbuilt camera battery and the second being a 13600 mAh lithium-ion battery that allows the system to run up to 3 days without a power source.

We also offer a third battery solution in the way of an external large 12v battery much like a car battery, this will give the system up to 3 months of power supply without charge.

Remote Maintenance

Aussie Support 24/7

Our team will monitor your time-lapse camera remotely for any alerts and take action. Our time-lapse camera systems are super smart and in many cases self-fix issues, but should there be any issues we will work with the system engineers to fix the problem remotely. Depending on the location of the time-lapse camera, they are generally maintenance-free, but for example, time-lapse cameras on a remote dusty site may need the housing glass cleaned with a simple microfibre cloth on occasion. All our time-lapse cameras are cleaned and the glass polished with Rainx prior to dispatch and in most cases, dust on the glass will be focused through by the lens and rarely show up.
