The Integrations view

The Integrations view is where you set up integrations with supported external platforms for your projects. We offer integrations with Procore, Egnyte, OxBlue, Box, and Autodesk® BIM 360® Field and Docs


Integrations sync your existing data into Smartvid.io so you can use its capabilities without changes to workflows or having to upload assets twice.

Set up an OxBlue integration

Follow these steps to set up an integration with an OxBlue account. Integrating a Smartvid project with one or more OxBlue cameras pulls camera images into the project at your chosen frequency. You can also choose to sync daily time lapse videos. 

  • From the Integrations view, click on the OxBlue thumbnail.
  • Under OxBlue Connection, click the Connect button and enter your login information in this pop-up window: 

    If you access your OxBlue cameras via a public URL and don't have an OxBlue login, email support@oxblue.com with the public link for the camera you're trying to integrate. Include your desired username (username must be an email address). OxBlue will then create a login for you and send it to the email address provided, typically within 2 business hours. If you need to expedite the request, call OxBlue customer support at 888-849-2583 to have it expedited. 

  • Under Integration Configuration, you'll see a list of available cameras linked to your account. Use the checkboxes to choose the camera(s) to sync to the project. 

  • Under Frequency, choose how often you want to pull an image from each synced camera. 

  • If you want to sync OxBlue daily time-lapse videos, choose "Daily" in the time lapse menu. Otherwise, leave it set to "Never."

  • Under Integration Status, select the Enabled radio button:

  • Your integration should now be turned on. Wait at least as long as your chosen sync interval before checking for files. 

Change sync settings

If you want to change selected cameras or a different sync frequency:

  • Pause the integration by clicking the Disabled radio button:

  • Under Integration Configuration, un-select cameras to stop syncing with them and select new cameras to sync, and use the Frequency menu to choose a different sync interval. 

  • Click the Enabled button again to save your changes and turn the integration back on. 


Set up a Procore integration

Follow these steps to set up a 2-way integration between a Procore project and a Smartvid.io project. The integration is bi-directional, meaning photos or videos added to a project in either system will automatically sync to the other. 

Once your integration is configured and projects are connected:

  • Photos in your Smartvid.io project will be added to the photos area of the connected Procore project. 
  • If you choose, Procore locations will be imported as tags and added to files from that Procore location.  These locations will also be available as audio tags in Smartvid.io - you can now speak them during field videos and they will tag your content automatically. 
  • Videos in your Smartvid.io project will create snapshots (images of video frames) for each tag found in your video, and these images will be added to the photos area of the connected Procore project.
  • Photos in your Procore project will be added to the Files view of the connected Smartvid.io project, tagged with the title of the source Procore album.
  • If you choose, any Smartvid.io tags on a photo or snapshot will be added to the caption of the corresponding synced Procore photo.
  • Photos or videos deleted in either Smartvid.io or Procore won't be deleted in the other system.

To set up the integration:

  • From the Integrations view, click on the Procore thumbnail.
  • Click the Connect button under Procore Connection and enter your login credentials in this pop-up screen:

  • Under Integration Configuration / Procore Company & Procore Project, click to choose (1) the Procore company containing the project to integrate with, (2) the project:

  • Under Integration Configuration / File <-> Album handling, choose how you'd like your Smartvid.io content delivered to Procore:
    • Upload all files to one specified album - if you choose this, change the Album Name field to whatever you want.
    • Upload all files to an existing Procore album  - if you choose this, a menu of existing albums will appear for you to choose from.
    • Upload files to weekly Procore albums (recommended) - if you select this, use the Weekly Album Prefix field to enter an automatic prefix for synced album titles. As the titles are by default the date of sync, i.e. 01-15-2017, we suggest leaving “Week of” as is
  • By default, any Smartvid.io tags found will be pushed back to the caption of the source Procore photo. To turn this off, uncheck this checkbox.

  • Check Download locations from Procore to import Procore locations as tags to the project's tag dictionary.

  • Why? When you turn on locations, synced photos will automatically be tagged with their original Procore location, making it easier to keep track of where photos came from. You can also instantly use any imported location tags as audio tags for progress tracking videos - no need to manually set them up! 

  • Under Integration Status, select the 'Enabled' radio button:

  • Your integration should now be turned on. Wait at least 15-20 minutes before checking for files.

Change sync settings

  • If you later want to sync that specific project with a different Procore project: 

    • Pause the integration by selecting the Disabled radio button:

    • If you have created or joined new projects in Procore, click the Refresh Project Data button to "pull" changes from Procore:
    • Choose another project from the project menu, choose album settings, then select Enabled again to turn the integration back on.

The integration will automatically disconnect and you'll have to reconfigure it if:

  • Your Procore credentials become invalid
  • You are removed from the connected Procore project
  • The company the project belongs to is deleted
  • For two-way sync: the album you are syncing back to gets deleted
