Time-lapse Camera Housings

Your photoSentinel long term time-lapse equipment may be out on the construction site for a long time and so needs to withstand whatever the environment might throw at it. With the IP-66 weatherproof photoSentinel Pro time-lapse housings, you can rest assured that your equipment will stay safe and dry in the wildest conditions.*

* with perhaps the exception of cyclones and tornadoes!


photoSentinel time-lapse housings feature:

  • IP-66 weather-proof material (that’s as weather-proof as you can get before going underwater!);
  • solar-power input to charge the internal lithium ion battery;
  • B270 optically-pure glass (so there’s minimal light refraction to spoil your photos);
  • a pressure equalising valve to limit condensation;

  • a pan and tilt bracket for perfect positioning;
  • a visor to help protect the window from rain and bird poop;
  • internal camera position adjustment; and
  • room for your camera, battery and photoSentinel controller (3G-intervalometer).

Camera housing comparison

Our most popular option, the Standard Housing fits most DSLRs with a 10-20mm wide-angled or other short lens.

The Wide-body Housing gives you twice the space as the Standard Housing, allowing more room to adjust your camera just the way you want it. Fits most DSLRs with a 10-20mm wide-angled or other short lens.

The long-body of The Beast Housing allows you to use a bigger camera with a longer lens (up to 200mm). Perfect for capturing time-lapse from a long distance.

All powered by a single solar panel


Because of the proprietary low-powered electronics that we’ve invented, the entire photoSentinel Pro system can be happily powered on a 10W or 20W solar panel – that’s as small as just one square foot of solar cells! Coupled with the small housing, this makes the entire set-up extremely portable and makes installation easy.

The photoSentinel Pro comes standard with a 10.2Ahr lithium-ion battery which will last up to a full week without recharging.* AC power is also available and can be adjusted for the power output of any country worldwide.

* At a shooting regime of 16 photos/day and in an area of strong 3G network signal.

photoSentinel in extreme temperatures


In the lab we’ve successfully tested photoSentinel at temperatures as low as -24°C (-11°F) and as high as 60°C (140°F). Out in the wild, we have photoSentinels operating in environments as hot as the deserts of Australia, U.A.E and Qatar (up to 46°C (115°F)) and as cold as the Canadian prairie (down to -30°C  (-22°F)).

To put it simply, the photoSentinel electronics will work in any climate you’re likely to encounter. (Though we’re not sure about Antarctica and also suspect that the 24 hour darkness of northern Europe might cause problems for the solar power…)
