EMBEDDING

Aside from using the interim or final time-lapse films in their marketing, many firms working with us also want to embed the latest images coming from the cameras in real time into their websites.

There are several ways to go about this. This page will outline several possibilities - from a simple image that will show the latest upload from the camera on page reload, to a full-featured, browse-able archive in an iFrame.

Below is an example of a typical embedded MK siteview camera page, with all the features available with regards browsing images, watching auto-compiled videos and more. It uses an iFrame.

In order to embed an iFrame, you will need access to the HTML code of your website.

 

Depending on what system you use, you may be able to:

  • view a page as raw HTML

  • find an "insert HTML" option

  • insert an external URL as an iFrame

It is into this HTML view or dialog box that you will be able to drop the embed codes provided by us. If you're unsure, please tell us what system you use (i.e. Wix, Wordpress, Squarespace or other) and we can look up how best to insert the iFrame.

Please note! To work well in a website seen on a computer (not mobile), the iFrame will need to be at least 1024 pixels wide.

You now have several options of how  you want the camera or project to appear in the iFrame.

The following features can be toggled on or off:

  • Logo block

  • Control block

  • Time block

  • Footer

  • Menu

If you just want to embed the latest image, with no zooming or other features, that's simpler. Please see the next section...

We can provide you with a simple image link, that you can use on your site just like you would insert a normal image.

 

When loading or refreshing your website, the image will always be the most recent picture from the camera.

There are options available:

  • Image resolution - from 100px thumbnails to full resolution photos

  • Time delay - from 0 to 24hrs
