Construction Site Video Intelligence

For all you contractors out there that have dreamed of monitoring deliveries and job site progress from your mobile phone, here is a portable setup that lets you do it! We've summarized the total costs and included links to purchase the products.

You can also use this setup to get instant messages if something important moves when it shouldn't (e.g. your Bobcat tractor or table saw at 2am).

The Orbit box is included just as a weather-proof, locked place to keep the Verizon MiFi 4G Hotspot; try to place it within view of the camera so that the camera can protect itself from theft.

We're experimenting with off-the-grid solar-powered configurations too. More on that another time...
