NEW SITECLOUD FEATURES & ENHANCEMENTS
Enhanced Live Streaming
All MC-2.0 Sensera Systems cameras (MC-26, MC-78, MC-88, Sitewatch PRO 2.0) now come equipped with Motion JPEG Streaming capabilities. This recent enhancement to Live Streaming reduces latency and startup time while also improving image quality.
Customers can easily toggle between H.264 and Motion JPEG as needed to manage the tradeoff between video quality and data usage.
Cloning Configurations between Cameras
Customers can now clone image capturing schedules, camera status alerts and projects update recipients (or integrations) including time zone, site designation and much more
Export Weather Data
Many customers will find the ability to export weather data very useful if it becomes necessary to address how weather may have impacted a project’s progress. Historical weather data can be accessed for up to 2 years.
Expanded capacity for Permission Based Users
Keep your colleagues, subcontractors and other stakeholders in the know by creating up to 100 permission based users. Each user’s permissions can be unique, assigned by camera and by operation.
Thank you to our customers for their valuable feedback on what they would prefer to see on the image timestamps. When enabled, this feature will now display the camera name instead of the serial number for customers using our SiteWatch security cameras.
Should you wish to have this feature enabled on your MC series camera(s), please submit a ticket to technical support.
Updates to the Dashboard now make viewing multiple camera feeds from SiteCloud easier than ever. No matter which device or browser is used to access SiteCloud, the Dashboard no longer requires setup when accessing SiteCloud through a new computer.
Users will also notice that they now have the ability to change the arrangement of the cameras displayed on their Dashboard through a simple "Remote Control" style adjuster with arrows to move the selected camera display around.
A brand new addition to our arsenal of tools, customers can be confident that they have purchased the right site monitoring equipment to achieve the appropriate field of view with their Sensera Systems' cameras.
Click here to designate your site boundary on a Google map then add cameras to see their field of view represented by a cone shape. Achieve an even more precise estimate by utilizing the rotation slider and map dimensions.
Access to the Site Planner is conveniently available without a login and can be used to generate screenshots for sharing with relevant stakeholders such as owners and subcontractors.
To further enhance image viewing within SiteCloud, users can now choose the full screen viewing button and scroll left/right to review and annotate images from this larger display. This optimization also works with zoom and pan.
With this optimization, customers utilizing the DVR Download feature will now have visibility into the status of their download request. Previously displayed as “Pending Download Request”, users will now see “In Progress Download Requests”.
Custom Time Lapse Video Duration
The display for Custom Time Lapse Videos has been improved through a change to the time record. The video duration will now be shown in minutes rather than large number of seconds, when appropriate.
Archive Effective Date
During the process of archiving media within a SiteCloud account, customers can now set the final date of the project as the effective date of the Archive, rather than the first date of the new project.
The effective date is the final date on which project images were captured - all images captured up to and including this date will now be included in the Archived media. All images captured after the effective date will also remain in the Capture Images pane and will be included with the next project.
