- When should I check my camera?
We often get asked, “how often/when should I check my camera?” After three years of working with the system this is the simplest graph I could come up with. Basically, what interval and project are you capturing? And do you wish to be swimming in too much content? eh-hem think editing here. Projects are either short, medium or long term. Just like Goldilocks. Think of it as training wheels are just about to come off and the settings are nearly perfect. It's up to you to stay on top of your camera checks to ensure the camera is in operation. Once you go outside of these parameters then...you are in a risky category. The SHORTER interval i.e. between one and five seconds is in the AGGRESSIVE category this means you will need to check your camera much more frequently. Run the camera hard for truss days, single days of concrete pours and quick action being completed within 20 minutes up to one 6-8 hours. TIP: at this setting it's wise to upgrade that card to 32 mb to be sure you have all the content for that single day. MEDIUM Can this be new category? I believe it should be. These are the in-between projects. The weekly or biweekly jobs. Ie Window or roof shingle installation. The jobs you know you're going to be on site that you're monitoring closely and you're watching the camera. At this interval you have two weeks of content running 12 hours a day using lithium batteries and a 16 gig card. Both will be used up. LONG TERM aka the "sweet spot" of the system. Set the camera for your 8 hour, recording 5 days (Monday-Friday), go grab a drink at the nearest delightful location. This is for long broad changes when you want to monitor your site and provide. Our rough calculations for this setting is the camera will last for over 45 days. We recommend monthly checks because you never know when natural disaster or human meanness will strike. And it will! We have proof of that too.
- Can I connect my Afidus Camera to a computer?
Yes you can, first some essential information. The Afidus camera's USB port is both power and data, however, not simultaneously. 1) Connecting the camera is for data transfer only. Data transfer when using the USB cord is a slower method of saving the content. We recommend removing the card from the camera and using a dedicated mSD card reader to save/archive those many files. For saving the files read this article on the best methods. 2) It is not for recharging/controlling/programming the camera. It will not power up your rechargeable batteries. Speaking of which, we do not recommend using them as they will get stuck in the battery carriage. For best batteries and more information read this article we created after months of testing. 3) When connected to a computer, the camera will shut down automatically. The camera will time out due to power saving programing that users do not have control of. TimeLapseCameras.com continually discovers many features of the camera system and what it is capable of.
- Daylight Savings Time and Firmware update reminder
It's camera check time friends. This week is the perfect time to schedule a camera check. These recommended monthly checks are part of our "best practices" for camera operation. This one in particular is pretty critical to cover the daylight savings time jump in time. We say, fire up that cam and “Check those Bat’s and Stats”. All battery operated cameras running a scheduler will need to be checked this week to ensure they are running spot on schedule. Get your Energizer Bunny Batteries out and replace as needed. Change out those cards, archive and save your content, and most especially, know the camera will automatically sync to the correct time-but not until it is connected to the app. Otherwise, the camera will record an hour off if you are using scheduled recording. Helpful reminder: Firmware update. Here's the shorty on the steps: Keep your camera off and not connected to Wi-fi Open up the Afidus Time Lapse App app first Download the firmware Power Camera on and connect to wi-fi Open the Afidus Time Lapse App Settings > Firmware > Update, wait for the series of beeps to be complete and follow the reconnection connection process. This video guides you through the process. The firmware in this video is an older version however the process remains the same. As always, please reach out to us for your questions and we will be there to assist you.

- Which cards to use? … Card Size and Let’s back it up!
At TimeLapseCameras.com we ship all cameras with the manufacturer supplied 16 Gb SanDisk Ultra. There are several types of card speeds. ULTRA vs EXTREME. In testing various brands we have determined the recommended card and speed to use is SanDisk Ultra. The Afidus time lapse camera will accept cards up to 256 Gb in size. (update: as of May 2022, Afidus is now recommending only upto 128 GB. Which must be formatted as FAT32. Read on friends we have much to share.) Cards larger than 32gb in size must be formatted correctly. In our experience, there is little need for large cards to be used. WHY? only use SanDisk Ultra? The Afidus Time Lapse system writes flies slowly. Our recommended advise, stay with Ultra. Many speeds are available they are defined as: Ultra, Ultra Plus, Extreme and Extreme Pro. "SanDisk Ultra is slower than the Extreme model with a speed of up to 100mb/s. The SanDisk Extreme is faster by about 60mb/s since its listed transfer speed is up to 160mb/s from 64GB. The 32GB Extreme model has the same listed transfer speed as the Ultra Plus model." In testing various brands and speeds with the ATL-200S model, it became clear to us at TimeLapseCameras.com any speed greater than ULTRA is not recommended and will not work with the camera system. More information regarding card speeds. BEST PRACTICE: Format the card in the camera. If you're like us and use multiple cameras (or devices which use the mSD cards) it's recommended "Best Practice" to always format the card in the camera before it's used. This is especially true in the new 200S camera. Any mSD Ultra card larger than 16 GB in size must be formatted prior to use. TIP: Use a permanent marker to mark your 200S cards and we advise to keep them separate within the cameras/devices you use them in. Now for the fine print with the ATL-200S The ATL-200S has a better CPU with more features and better performance. ATL-200S uses FAT32 as its memory card format. The CPU doesn't support exFAT format. The solution is: 1. Format memory card before recording. 2. Avoid switching the using the same memory card between the previous ATL-200 and ATL-200S models or any other device using that mSD card. (This tip is for users who happen to have both models). Similarly this is a good practice to remember its not recommended to switch your mSD cards used generally between devices. SanDisk states "swapping memory cards between different cameras is a bad idea. this can lead to disc corruption and dramatically reduces the life of the memory card." Best card tips and practices article "What about larger cards" If you want to upgrade your card size-you can look to 32, or 64 in size. Stay with the recommended SanDisk ULTRA microSD. Within the monthly recording guide, the16gb has enough storage for most recording and is compatible with Afidus camera. Most applications don't need the larger 64 Gb and above cards. Surveillance work might be the exception where you need to capture a lot over 24 hours to capture whatever you are looking for. Weekly Projects: For most projects 16Gb is the best starting point between content and battery life. With the "minute-to-win-it-rule" a capture every minute for a month during a 10 hour workday (working Monday-Friday) is about 7.5 minutes of footage, for that month. This is around 3.4 Gb total, at which point we check the batteries and there is plenty of extra room. Unique situations: Surveillance and short term wildlife motion sensing projects might be the only application where we have needed 64 or 128Gb card sizes. These typically record for 24 hours a day with a capture every five seconds, this uses almost 3Gb a day. A 128Gb card would fill in around 40 days. You would need solar power or alternate power source to power the camera. For a month of recording you would have about 7 hours of footage to comb through. How do you remove the card? Open the camera battery compartment Remove the batteries Tilt the camera upside down Press the card until it clicks to deseat it Use the tip of your finger to gently remove it from the camera. Let’s talk Back-up Our recommendation is to keep cards under 64 Gb in size due to the regular monthly checks for your projects. You never want to be caught in the situation your camera has disappeared and you have not saved your content for that month. Backing up to a central drive, computer, and/or cloud storage allows for safe redundancy. As you move through your project, continue to save content to the folder structure you prefer. Check and Clear that Card After the card has been saved you must clear it off. In this screen example the card is full. The information screen and main card screen will show how much available and used space is on the card. If the card is full and you deploy it for your project the camera will look and operate like it is recording normally. You will be lucky if you get one file, a frame, a day or 10 days of content on that full card. There is not enough space to continue. Apple Users: After downloading the card contents to your computer/drive/cloud to archive for future use, you must (Apple terms here) "trash the card" and empty the trash. Window Users: Need to Format the card. Ensure the card has been emptied by checking the mSD information where there will be plenty of room on the card. This will delete the contents of the card allow you to keep recording. The other method for formatting the card was mentioned above. Format it within the Afidus App as mentioned above. Be sure to check out the rest of our User Guide for full camera operation.

- Best Batteries we recommend using
Long story short-NEVER use rechargeable batteries for long term time-lapses! These batteries self discharge and are not suitable for powering long term projects. They are also likely to get stuck in the battery carriage because they are slightly larger in diameter when compared to the leading brand. Best Brands Energizer Max (alkaline) Energizer Ultimate (lithium) * Duracell Black Ultra (alkaline) For super cold weather The Energizer Lithium batteries get a special call out in our book due for cold weather use. In Minnesota, we experience temperatures dropping below -30°. Fine print on Lithium Batteries Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries provide longer run time and maintain a charge when the temperature dips. They cost more, but provide better performance, especially if the temperature is sub-zero to 30F. The only catch with lithium batteries is the steep power curve, they are either good or dead, there is little mid-range and they may fail without warning. However, the failure point is longer than standard alkaline batteries. Our best advise ever Do not use cheap off brand generic batteries (this includes Kirkland from Costco) as this will severely reduce your camera operation time!

- In the Field: How to Check Your Camera
It’s camera check time! Here’s a helpful reminder of: what to do and what essential supplies to bring with you into the field. What to bring with you to be ready. Generally, when you’re in the field, you don’t have a lot of time to waste. So, to check your camera as quickly as possible, it’s important to have the appropriate supplies readily available. Must haves: Fresh brand-name batteries, Energizer Max (article) An extra SanDisk Ultra card (article) Mobile Device. Tip: Store your batteries in either a ziplock bag or upgrade to an organized Think Tank storage battery holder. Cards should be stored safely in a protected mSD holder. Our typical procedure is to replace both of these at the same time. Replace the batteries and replace the card for saving/archiving the contents. Read on for the extra items to bring or feel free to jump to the essential camera check steps Extra goodies: mSD USB cord * Power brick * Extra clamp mount, a good thing to have if it's been over used heavily. Field bag to contain all the goodies. (Optional) * The mSD USB cord and power brick are necessary if Afidus has an update for their app. These firmware updates must be done with the camera powered on and attached to a power brick. Firmware update procedure here. In the case where heavily-used mounts are exposed to inclement weather, it’s not a bad idea to have an extra one handy. It’s a good item for the field bag. Speaking of field bag...well, we have a few recommendations. Recommended Field Bags: Now, keep in mind that this is the bag with all the extras. It’s like that diaper bag filled with tricks and toys and food meant to placate any combustible situation. This bag should hold the solutions to all of your in-the-field scenarios. Think Tank Hubba Hubba Hiney 3.0 Sling Bag Both bags will hold everything you need: extra clamp, power brick, USB cord, zip-ties, batteries and cards. If you happen to purchase an extra silicone sleeve and band, those will fit too. And snacks. Granola bars are awesome, and because you just never know. Why do we love the Think Tank Hubba Hubba Hiney 3.0 bag? Because it has a rain fly that doubles as a workspace protected area. It’s storytime friends, “We were on a job that had us perched two stories in the air on scaffolding, when the wind blew right at the time of the card change. Lucky for us, the wind blew the card down into the rain-covered workspace, and we were able to retrieve the content for future use. That content was later used in the RPU chimney tower demolition job.” Why do we love the Sling Bag? Pure function. It attaches to the body and doesn’t flop around everywhere. Plus, you can swing it from the back to the front when you’re up on a ladder and you have everything handy. A great tip: When you discover the capabilities of the Afidus time lapse camera system, consider a second camera. Either as a back up and simply change out the cameras or use as a second camera position on site. This fits too in either suggestion. Essential Camera Check Steps Assuming you’re using the “minute-to-win-it” method for your interval recording work days, then monthly checks are recommended. If you’re using any interval less than one minute, then you’ll need to plan on more frequent checks. 1) Check the LED On-site with your camera we recommend doing a visual check first. Check the status of the LED at the top of the unit to determine the status of the camera. More information of the LED is located in this supporting article. 2) Stop your camera’s recording Stop your camera’s recording with a short press of the power button. You will hear a long beep and the LED will appear solid green. At this time you can connect the camera to Wi-Fi. 3) Check the batteries If you see two bars on the battery level, we recommend you change those batteries. One of our pro-level requests to Afidus is to switch to a percentage monitor for battery health to make it easier to read this information. While you have the app open, take a snapshot. This will allow you to use image alignment to match the frame. See our Alignment Video as a camera app feature to refresh. 4) Verify your footage Check the footage from the gallery. In our field practice, we confirm clips were recorded. Rarely, do we download clips to a phone as this process takes too much time, 3.5 minutes per 537 MB clip. If you choose to download to phone here's our refresh article on that procedure. 5) Check the card If more than 75% of your card is full, then change it pronto! This is especially important if you used about 10 Gb in the last month on your card and you are doing monthly checks. 6) Change out that card and batteries. If your batteries are at 1 or 2 bars and the card is more than 50% used, power down your camera with a long press of the power button, change out the batteries and replace that card for archiving. Mission accomplished! Now you can power the camera on with a long press of the power button. Follow our Preflight Check list for refresh tips on deploying your camera.
