Improved Solar-Powered Webcams For Construction Cost Less

July 8, 2014 – Winston-Salem, NC – TrueLook, Inc. announces new and improved solar-powered webcam systems for construction jobsites. These webcam systems are completely wireless, off-the-grid solutions for time-lapsing and live monitoring of construction projects. The new systems offer major equipment improvements, as well as reductions in price and shipping times.

TrueLook has made a number of improvements to the webcam electronics. The battery now stores 5 days of backup power, which is vital during darker hours and non-cooperative weather. Customers also have an LED indicator for charging status and battery level so they know exactly how their unit is operating.

Choosing the proper solar panel has been simplified as well. Larger panels are required for regions with less solar exposure, and determining the proper panel size has long been a case-by-case affair. Now, TrueLook simply offers 90W and 130W panel options – ensuring enough power for anywhere in the U.S. Standardizing the panel sizes helps decrease costs and makes it much easier to move webcams from site to site without recalculating each location’s panel requirements.

The installation process has been drastically simplified. Anyone who can turn a wrench can install a TrueLook solar webcam. No electrical wiring is required – TrueLook uses keyed snap-together connectors. Connecting the components now takes seconds to complete, and is completely foolproof. Once the camera has power, it automatically connects to the TrueLook service via a built-in cellular modem.

Even after sourcing better parts, TrueLook has been able to reduce prices and shipping times by about 50%. Currently, units typically ship in 2-3 business days. TrueLook solar-powered webcams are also eligible for a federal tax credit on renewable energy.
