Triax Technologies, EarthCam to Provide Next Level of Access Control for Construction

Triax Technologies, Inc., a provider of technology for the connected jobsite, and EarthCam, the provider of construction camera technology and services, have announced a partnership to integrate their solutions to increase visibility into jobsite perimeters, enhancing safety and security, the companies said.

Using Triax´s Spot-r network, the two companies are offering a first-of-its-kind solution, enabling EarthCam´s high-resolution video cameras to provide real-time, independent visual verification of data identified through a worker´s wearable Spot-r Clip as it is swiped by each person entering and exiting the jobsite.

The Spot-r Clip, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) device attached to a worker´s belt, is a multipurpose credential for a worker´s access to the jobsite. It is synced to a worker profile in the Spot-r dashboard, enabling supervisors to manage worker identification and certifications to ensure compliance with regulations. Now, with the EarthCam integration, this data is synced to a video camera that provides a video segment as each person enters and leaves the site.

With these new capabilities, contractors and owners can know who is on site, as well as the exact time they entered and left. Additionally, the data that Spot-r captures on these transactions enables contractors to easily and quickly access the relevant images they need, rather than sifting through all of the video footage.

EarthCam is the global provider of providing webcam content, technology and services. Founded in 1996, EarthCam provides live streaming video, time-lapse construction cameras and reality capture solutions for corporate and government clients. EarthCam leads the industry with the highest resolution imagery available, including the world´s first outdoor gigapixel panorama camera system. This patent-pending technology delivers superior multi-billion pixel clarity for monitoring and archiving important projects and events. More information can be found at http://www.earthcam.net/.
