Safety and productivity are top priorities for contractors and industrial operations. Improving either makes a company more profitable and competitive. Technology advancements that can do both are important for every company to consider. HoistCamTM industrial-grade video monitoring solutions can improve employees’ productivity and workplace safety in the construction industries. HoistCam also improves efficiency of operations and reduces job site accidents resulting in substantial cost savings to a contractor.
HoistCam™ is an integrated, wireless video system. The use of HoistCam eliminates blind lifts, blind spots and can share the live video with anyone, anywhere with solid security and easy control. It provides digital video recording and embedded sensors coupled with a custom, cloud-based software platform to securely share the video streams anywhere in the world. Crane operators attach HoistCam to a crane’s hook block with a video monitor in the cab to provide them “in-cab” situational awareness. HoistCam allows the operator to see everything in detail where in the past they operated blind. The optional HoistCam Director service employs a mobile recorder that sits alongside the monitor in the operator's cab and allows supervisors and management to see each job and site activity live, and to record any desired operation directly to the cloud for later viewing or analysis.
