Every Buildcam camera comes with solar included as standard - Choosing the Best Construction Time Lapse Camera

Solar cameras come standard

Our engineers are masters of low-power electronics, and have crafted a state-of-the-art construction camera system that is fully-powered by only a single, lightweight 20W solar panel.

Every Buildcam time lapse camera comes with solar included as standard, ready to go straight out of the box.

No massive solar arrays, bulky battery stations or expensive generator trailers required!

(Of course, if you do need to run your system on AC, we’ve got you covered there as well, with Buildcam’s industrial-grade, weatherproof AC charger.)

Buildcam cameras are solar and cellular, so you can deploy your camera anywhere

Deploy your solar-powered time-lapse camera anywhere

Buildcam cameras are solar and cellular, so you can deploy your camera anywhere on your jobsite without the need to run cables or haul in a generator.

Because you don’t have to wait for power to be connected, you can get your solar construction site camera up and running before you even break ground, so you miss none of the action.

And when your job is finished, Buildcam is fast and easy to take down and redeploy to your next project.

Fast and easy installation

Fast and easy installation

You don’t need to be an electrician to install a Buildcam solar-powered time lapse camera.

We’ve made it so simple that even the junior apprentice can do it.

The lightweight and compact design makes it easy for a single worker to transport and install the solar panel wherever you need it.

Of course, if you do hit a hurdle during installation, our US-based Customer Success team are only a phone call away.

A few cloudy days? No problem

A few cloudy days are no issue for the Buildcam solar time lapse camera, thanks to the state-of-the-art, low-power electronics and high-capacity lithium-ion battery.

Buildcam’s smart power management means the system can run for a full week on the battery alone.

And when the sun does re-appear, Buildcam’s fast charging circuit will get the battery up to full capacity again in no time – giving our construction time lapse cameras incredible lifespans.

Buildcam Camera are Solar Green - Renewable, eco-friendly solar power

Renewable, eco-friendly solar power

Cut down on your jobsite energy consumption with an off-the-grid solar solution.

A construction site solar camera is clean and sustainable; solar panels have a strong net-positive environmental impact with long-term usage, so the longer your project, the better the benefit for the environment.

What are the benefits to using solar over AC?

On some jobsites, your timelapse camera may be in a position where it is difficult to connect it to AC power, or perhaps your site does not yet have any AC power.

In these situations, the advantage of solar is that you can get your time lapse camera powered-up in minutes, anywhere on-site, independent from the grid.

The self-contained nature of solar, coupled with Buildcam’s robust battery, means your camera will be unaffected by power outages, accidental plug removal, or a few days of cloudy weather.

How easy is it really to install a Buildcam solar panel?

Mount the panel below your Buildcam, angle it to 45 degrees, and plug the connector cable in; that’s it! It’s really that simple to get your solar panel up and running.

What do you mean I can deploy and relocate my camera anywhere?

AC power, while having its own advantages, is ultimately dependent on running a long cable from an outlet to the camera. In some cases, running an AC cable can be difficult or impossible.

With a solar-powered construction camera, you can deploy the camera wherever you like on-site so long as it has access to sunlight.

The portability and easy pack-down nature of the solar panel (and Buildcam camera itself) makes it easy to move it to another part of the jobsite or to transport it to a new jobsite entirely.

Should I use solar or AC power for my project?

There are certainly nuances and advantages to both. Buildcam, in addition to its 20W lightweight solar panel, offers a weather-resistant outdoor AC charger.

How eco-friendly is the Buildcam solar panel?

Like most eco-friendly technologies, there is an initial environmental cost involved in the production of the technology. The production of electric cars, windmills, and solar panels all involve some degree of environmental impact at the on-set.

With prolonged use, however, a significant net-positive impact on the environment is achieved. The long length of most construction projects means there is a great return-on-investment for the environment, typically accruing 1-3 years of positive environmental impact after the ‘break-even’ period.
