Dropcam Adds New Timelapse Feature To Cloud Customers


Dropcam, states they are always striving to achieve the ultimate customer experience, which includes a little bit of fun. They have introduced Timelapse, a new beta feature for customers with Dropcam Cloud Recording.

How does it work?
Timelapse is currently available via the Dropcam web app. When you click the “Make Timelapse” button, you can select up to 24 hours of footage on your timeline and choose a clip duration of 30, 60, 90 or 120 seconds. There’s no need to worry about frame rates — we’ve done the heavy lifting for you behind the scenes. We automatically adjust it based on the footage length and clip duration you choose. So, all it takes is a click.

If you’d like to view motion activity more closely, you can select the “Smart Timelapse” option, which slows the video at points of detected motion activity. The Smart Timelapse option is ideal for highlighting motion activity that occurs infrequently within a selected clip span.

Dropcam has already come across some creative Timelapse clips from customers. Here are a few of our favorites:
