EarthCam Presents AI Camera Services for the Retail Sector

Visual data solutions for retail facilities management & jobsite monitoring


New York, March 11, 2024 -- EarthCam, the leader in live camera technology, content and services, demonstrated its latest solutions for construction and facilities monitoring at the SPECS retail industry conference. Designed to meet the need for fast-to-deploy, easy-to-install wireless camera systems for new store builds and renovations, these solutions reduce the frequency of onsite inspections, enhance communication and increase accountability

EarthCam leads the industry with AI-powered visual data for safety analytics and progress monitoring. The company’s highly-rated customer service, easy online procurement and integration with management platforms like Procore and Projectmates makes it the partner of choice for retail executives.

“The simplicity and standardization of the EarthCam system is beautiful,” said Jon Hegarty, regional construction director for Five Guys Burgers & Fries® in a recent video interview. “I have used a couple of other companies’ platforms and didn’t really find that they were as user-friendly as the EarthCam program. I get on EarthCam every day, tracking to make sure everything is trending in the correct direction. Everyone in our company from top to bottom uses it – including the GCs.”

EarthCam’s national enterprise discount program provides interior and exterior camera rentals with affordable project-based pricing, including system installation and removal. Advanced battery technology and low power consumption makes it possible to live stream, archive and create time-lapse video in a significantly smaller footprint utilizing a single high-efficiency solar panel.

“EarthCam has been a godsend to me, because my jobsites are typically across the country,” said Paul Smedburg, project executive at C.D. Smith, who regularly manage retail construction projects. “It’s cut my travel budget for each job by 75%. I can see the authenticity of what’s being delivered to me by phone or email. It allows me to maintain - from a visual - that what I have on schedule on paper is actually happening in the field. I consider it my ‘third arm’ of project management.”

At SPECS, EarthCam is demonstrating its cost-effective, sustainable platform for retailers and contractors to incorporate jobsite cameras that deliver superior insights to help monitor progress and manage risk during new store construction and renovations. EarthCam provides user-friendly, all-inclusive software services with unique security analytics, delivering a new level of data intelligence. Stakeholders receive automated alerts and notifications, and EarthCam’s Central Station Monitoring (UL Listed, Five Diamond CSM) employs trained professionals to review incidents, assess risks and dispatch law enforcement as necessary.

EarthCam’s Control Center has long been the software of choice among industry leaders for smart project documentation, marketing, safety and security. Mobile apps provide convenient access to all visual information from the field to make construction project management more efficient with powerful visual data.
