The Work Zone Cam is a powerful, reliable jobsite documentation camera designed for extended outdoor use and provides the perfect do-it-yourself solution to create amazing time-lapse movies with professional results.
The Work Zone Cam system features a 18.0 megapixel digital SLR camera and a dependable Linux computer system loaded with easy-to-use software. The all-weather camera automatically captures snapshots on a schedule that you set. A cellular modem (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, or Global/SIM card) is built into every Work Zone Cam to transmit (via FTP) live images from your jobsite over the internet to your computer.
If you don't have access to the internet, you can record the high quality images directly to the onboard storage securely located within the camera's lockable enclosure. You can even record images in the highest quality “raw” resolution. The system uses the popular and reliable SD card format. It's easy to swap cards when one becomes full. A 4GB card is included with the camera and you can use up to a 64 GB card for extended archiving periods.
Yes – if you don’t have a computer or simply want to outsource the service, you can take advantage of Work Zone Cam’s no-frills low cost hosting service.

There are 4 ways you can use the camera without the Work Zone Cam services.
1. You can activate the camera's integrated cellular modem using your own wireless data account. Note: Each camera has a specific type of modem (CDMA, GSM) built in and you must match the modem and service provider. Once activated, the camera will wirelessly FTP images back to your computer.
2. You can connect to the camera locally through the built in RJ-45 ethernet port and hardwire the camera to your network using CAT5 cable. The camera software allows you to input local FTP information, in order to FTP images back to your computer.
3. You can save images locally within the secure all-weather camera enclosure to a standard SD card. The conveniently positioned SD storage device makes it easy to swap SD cards when one becomes full.
4. You can view, manage, control, and archive your images using our Enterprise Server. The Enterprise Server is an all in one archival image storage and public hosting server to privately host and manage camera images in your office or data center. An interactive interface enables users to share updates and time-lapse movies with team members.
