Professional extremely long timelapse shooting systemBuy
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.

Our company is one of the first clients of Timebox Camera and we have already been cooperating for several years, performing equipment mounting and ongoing support on site. The development of Timebox perfectly solves the timelapse shooting tasks for our clients. The reliability of this company is confirmed by more than two years of uninterrupted shooting on several sites. Timebox specialists professionally select equipment for each object and provide prompt and regular service support.
To work with Timebox Company is very convenient. They quickly answer to my questions about mounting, maintenance and shipment of cameras. Timebox is ideal solution for long-term timelapse shooting. While camera is working away and on high location, I can watch the progress online. This is very useful because you don’t need to climb to the camera every time to check whether it works or not.
I was pleased that it is easy and fast to coordinate working conditions with Timebox, they create all enabling conditions to satisfy the client, promptly responding to requests. The conditions in which the camera was installed were quite specific: a dark place, constant production, lack of a stable Internet signal, but Timebox specialists were able to find a solution and configure the equipment for us. For now, the camera has been shooting our object for more than six months, everything is working excellent.
The guys proved to be professionals in their field - they were constantly in touch, consulted us in the evening and at night, at the end of the work shift, and when we could not fix the problem ourselves, they sent a master who fixed everything (it turned out that the problem was not in the equipment, but in the quality of the mobile operator's communication). Now the equipment works 24/7, stably, without interference and communication interruptions. Excellent cooperation, we recommend Timebox company as reliable partners.
We are grateful for cooperation with Timebox. The guys from the company quickly solve the issues that arise during the shooting process. We have rented Timebox Pro systems for shooting short-term objects, also we bought these systems for projects with a longer duration - and in all cases we are satisfied with the result. Individual approach to each client is obvious and pleasant. Thank you for listening to your clients’ wishes.
We are very glad that we chose your company. In our business, you can not miss any detail in the process of shooting in any weather. And in this regard, the Timebox Pro system helps us very much even at -45С degrees. Photos are received consistently, and if there are problems with the power supply, an SMS-notification from the system immediately warns us about it, then we fix the problems. Impressions of the camera are only positive. We look forward to further cooperation with you.
When making a decision to shoot an long-term timelapse of the construction of a new passenger terminal at Khabarovsk International Airport, we selected from several options and never once regretted that we chose the Timebox company. We got help in searching the optimal shooting points and prompt technical support, well-thought-out technology and convenient access to the footage. The reliability of the system is confirmed by 18 months of uninterrupted shooting in severe weather conditions in the Russian Far East. We highly commend the Timebox team for their excellent professional work.
Timebox company offered us a range of services for the implementation of our project. The impression of cooperation is definitely positive, because Timebox understands that our kind of projects are focused on the long term, while the contracting authority needs one partner for the entire project period and for all types of work – from installation of equipment to carry out b-roll shooting and mounting. A serious advantage of Timebox is its comprehensive approach – at the time of signing the contract, we did not find comparable offers on the market.
For continuous monitoring of the construction of a new modern plant with an area of 20.000 m2, we decided to take Timebox equipment. We were attracted by the technology for remote monitoring of construction and remote control of the device, unlimited cloud storage, 24/7 support, convenient access to the footage. The Timebox team is distinguished by clarity and efficiency in the implementation of tasks, which is the key to the success of such projects.
Initially, we planned to carry out timelapse shooting using IP cameras. After considering this question, we realized that solutions based on video surveillance cameras do not reach the quality of shooting, service and convenience that Timebox has. Timebox LLC was chosen for its complete turnkey service and fast delivery times. It is also worth noting the high quality of shooting, working 24/7 in all weather conditions, and the convenience of the interface. We are satisfied with the excellent level of service provided by the company. We can safely recommend your company to our colleagues in construction industry.
