Powerful corporate controller TBS v5

The heart of the Timebox timelapse camera is a proprietary unique hardware-and-software suite TBS v5 (Timebox System). A powerful Linux-based platform allows easily solving any creative problem. TBS v5 is responsible for managing the camera, ensures uploading photos to the Internet, monitoring the state of equipment, and remote editing the settings of timelapse shooting (timelapse shooting mode). All components of the controller are tailored to operate at extreme temperatures from -40 to +65.

High-speed pictures uploading via 4G/Wi-Fi/LAN

Adjust Timebox remotely, watch the camera update status, and instantly receive full resolution photos via connecting the camera to 3G/4G, Wi-Fi or LAN networks.

Simultaneous shooting and uploading photos in RAW and Jpeg formats

Timebox allows simultaneous capturing in JPEG and RAW; at the same time, an individual schedule may be set for each type of shooting. For the purposes of online monitoring, shooting in JPEG may be set up in the extended range from 6 AM to 8 PM, and shooting in RAW is best performed with the Sun position from 10 AM to 3 PM. While JPEG photos are immediately sent to the Timebox server, RAW photos are sent to the local storage (an SSD or an SD card).

Connecting external large capacity SSD and SD cards

The TBS v5 controller allows connecting a large capacity 2.5 SSD drive or SD card for local storage of JPEG or RAW files for the entire duration of the project. For example, when shooting in RAW with the resolution of 24 MPx every 10 minutes from 8-00 to 18-00, a 512 GB storage should be sufficient for about 426 days of shooting.

IP 65 standard all-weather housing with optical warmed up glass

The housing made of fiberglass-reinforced ABS plastic reliably protects the device from the weather, and the unique areal warmed glass will let you not worry about the quality of the image in the winter.

Powered by solar panels or from 220 V mains

Timebox has 2 power supply options: Powering from 220 V mains. In this case, photos are instantly sent to the Timebox server, and the camera remains online 24 hours a day. The average power consumption of this mode is about 10 W⋅h. Powered from 50 W solar panels and a 12 V gel battery with the capacity of 33 A⋅h. In this case, Timebox switches to the power-saving mode, and can operate on the battery without charging from the solar panels charge for over 30 days, until solar activity is restored.

Emergency warning system in case of power outage and equipment failure

Timebox constantly monitors serviceability of all its components and in the case of, e.g., camera hanging, tries using all available means to recover the system performance. In case of a critical fault, the system notifies the user via SMS, e.g., if the SD card is filled, or the camera power supply has been cut off, you will always remain aware of the current Timebox status and will be able to take necessary measures.

Camera location and unauthorized access tracking system

The camera is fitted with a GPS tracker, and in case of unauthorized access to the camera, starts sending GPS coordinates to the user.

Online access to photos and camera settings

Our timelapse camera has a convenient and functional web interface and a mobile app for quick and easy access to photos and camera settings. You can grant your customers access to your personal account with a photo archive for online monitoring of the construction site. All information from your Timebox Camera will be stored on dedicated servers with high level of protection.

Regular software updates

The Timebox team is constantly working on improving camera software, adding new features, and providing support for new camera models. Updates are downloaded via the Internet, so you don't have to worry about the relevance of your Timebox's software.
