EarthCam Premieres 50 New Software Features for Construction

Upgrades for 360° VR Site Tour, new AI analytics, and advanced API integration

February 25, 2021 -- EarthCam, the leader in webcam technology and services, today released important Software-as-a-Service upgrades for its worldwide customer base. Control Center 8.7 includes an expanded API for custom partner and client integrations, predictive solar analytics and a state-of-the-art video player. Critical visual information can now be merged with new data points for more efficient decision making.

Over 50 features and upgrades were introduced for clients using EarthCam’s services, including new efficiencies for 360° VR Site Tour to merge architectural plans with webcam, drone and immersive videography. Additional enhancements for management platforms such as Autodesk and Procore were also integrated throughout the SaaS platform.

An expanded, fully documented API makes partner integrations easy and facilitates customer interaction with their cameras and data. Clients can now more easily bring camera content into their internal systems, backend management tools and project dashboards. The API comes from EarthCam’s development team which has decades of experience working with third parties to build custom integrations and empower clients with meaningful visual information.

As reliance on solar-powered cameras increases, Solar Power AI is becoming necessary to ensure maximum uptime. EarthCam’s new solar analytics provide valuable insights into solar performance from the moment of installation through the life of the system. Clients can verify optimal panel positioning and expected solar charging values are plotted based on current and future weather data. Smart alerts provide recommended actions to ensure every system stays online and in peak working condition even throughout challenging winter months.

For clients who prefer to showcase their webcam content publicly in various presentation environments, EarthCam created the ultra-responsive, cross-platform Glass Player. Featuring a minimalist interface and pristine, scalable video playback, users can freely move between live streaming, archived recordings or time-lapse videos using one streamlined, linear interface.

EarthCam’s Control Center 8 has long been the software of choice among industry leaders for smart project documentation and security. EarthCam works with industry leaders around the globe to make construction project management less costly and more efficient using powerful visual data.
