Enviro Cam | Venari

EnviroCam environmental monitoring

A tried and tested weatherproof remote imagery collection platform.

EnviroCam has been used by Auckland Council for realtime monitoring of multiple construction and industrial sites for signs of pollution and consent compliance. EnviroCam can be integrated with Lynker AI's EnviroEyes artifical intelligence image classification system for even more timely notifications of incidents.

Construction Time-lapse service

Long-term use in all weather conditions

Envirocam can capture your infrastructure or construction project from brown or green field through construction to finalisation allowing you to show several months or years of work in a short 30-90s video.

Our time-lapse cameras comprise a Raspberry Pi Zero 2W, a Raspberry PI High Quality camera, a Pi Juice battery management system and some batteries enclosed in an IP-66 housing and a solar panel.

By carefully managing power use, we are able to run for months or years with minimal interruption in normal conditions.

During longer periods of bad weather, the system will hibernate if necessary and wake up again when weather improves.

Minimal need for site visits

We send imagery and telemetry to a server to allow creation of timelapses without having to visit the site - these can be incorporated into your website for progress reporting and visualisation either internally, to key stakeholders, wider communities and/or the public.

Managed or self-hosted

This service is offered to New Zealand based construction companies, but is also published as an open-source project if you would prefer to build and manage your own camera and server.
