When W1 Developments began building Principal Tower in the City of London, they were looking for a way of visually monitoring progress of the development during the three-year construction. The award-winning property development company was also looking to explore the marketing value of delivering live views and time-lapse video recordings of the construction process.

W1 Developments approached NW Security Group, asking for an IP-based video solution that could deliver high quality images from a construction site setting where network connectivity was unavailable.

NW Security installed an Axis IP camera, together with a Mobotix camera on the roof of a nearby high-rise tower and teamed this hardware up with a secure high speed 3G cellular broadband connection.

This cost-effective, construction site-friendly solution provided comprehensive coverage round the clock and also, high quality images and a time-lapse movie for the marketing team at W1 Developments.
