Triax Technologies and EarthCam Partner to Provide the Next Level of Access Control for Construction

The Spot-r Clip, an Internet-of-Things (IoT) device attached to a worker’s belt, is a multipurpose credential for a worker’s access to the jobsite. It is synced to a worker profile in the Spot-r dashboard, enabling supervisors to manage worker identification and certifications to ensure compliance with regulations. Now, with the EarthCam integration, this data is synced to a video camera that provides a video segment as each person enters and leaves the site. With these new capabilities, contractors and owners can know who is on site, as well as the exact time they entered and left. Additionally, the data that Spot-r captures on these transactions enables contractors to easily and quickly access the relevant images they need, rather than sifting through all of the video footage.
