Enlaps Tikee – The World’s First Unlimited Time-Lapse Photography Solution

Editor's Rating
4.7?
Discovered on 2016-01-10

Create incredibly mesmerizing videos with Enlaps Tikee, the world’s first unlimited time-lapse photography solution. This clever device is equipped with two cameras and combines all aspects of the time-lapse photography process from setting up, shooting, and sharing the results online. The cameras are capable of panoramic photography and is simple to set up and use. Tikee uses a photovoltaic solar cell to remain fully powered throughout the shoot. It can also wirelessly store all of your media to the cloud so you don’t need to worry about storage space. And, after the shoot is over, Tikee even automatically processes the photos to create a seamless result. Weatherproof and equipped with a rubber pad, the Enlaps Tikee systems can handle any shoot, anytime.

I've emailed support and waited for a couple weeks. Now I am trying here. I cannot find the information about how we redeem our free Pro Account Trial. Can someone please help me? Thank you.

@steve We already answered why there is a freemium / premium account and following your request like all the backers you have get a premium account and you continue to complain...
Up to now our customers have successfully created time lapses and in case of question/problem we have a dedicated email : support@enlaps.fr

@ enlaps said " the watermark for non premium account is only on the video (due to the cost to generate them). All the pictures even with a free account can be downloaded with no watermark. " are you serious??? we didnt buy this to get a bunch of stills - the video IS the product!! we shouldn't have to rely on your promise to remove the watermark - I dont have to pay Nikon separate fee to get my pictures from their cameras, so they disappear tomorrow my camera is still functional

Review from Kickstarter
ok - i've tried -- a host of problems - most of which should have been resolved in a beta test-- ========== terrible design
-- poor design for SD card - cant get it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! card is stuck -- fully charged -- difficult to pair when adjacent -- says 'connecting' and hangs - multiple times - wont hold a connect for more than a few minutes
-- mobile app drops connection while TL in progress - then says no tikee found - now cant use the mobile app -- how can i get back w/o turning off the TL sequence?
-- wont turn on even tho fully charged - MANY tries and one may finally work after an annoying HOUR of just trying to turn the thing on -- wont let me choose raw or jpg
-- TL sequence - wont let me change interval from the defaults - mobile app completely unresponsive
-- time lapse sequence 'fails', but no indication on the machine - green light continues to blink, later says only 21 images taken - how can i know in the field if my sequence is being captured or not?
--- BLIND operation - no feedback
--- another try -- ran for 3 hrs, green light blinking, -- i turned the machine off & mobile managed to find it -- only to end w another error msg - had same '21 images' msg and nothing more - so wasted 3 hrs w/o anything to tell me there was a problem - i'm supposed to try this on a REAL project

=== user interface
-- manual needs better proofreading and editing; English translation poorly done - wording confusing, or worse
?? how do i know if uploading to the cloud?? where am i supposed to find my images? doc is unhelpful for workflow ====
this is a complete disaster - i'd be embarrassed to try to sell it to anyone else - i want a refund

Hi, could you give me an update on shipping? I sent an email, but must have missed your reply.

Hi just wondering the status of my Tikee Pro and accessories?
Enlaps
Review from Kickstarter
@steve, this is a solar powered system so leave it few hours under the sun and it will be charged ! And seriously you don't have at least one USB charger at home? ;)
Regarding the watermark : we have offered a premium account to our backer and they can confirm, the watermark for non premium account is only on the video (due to the cost to generate them). All the pictures even with a free account can be downloaded with no watermark.
The spirit of Kickstarter is to share feedbacks to improve a new product and not a judgement on a product you don't have yet tried !

Review from Kickstarter
just rec'd my tikee and disappointed -- if enlaps is too cheap to even include a charging cable what does that say about their attention to detail! the watermark is a complete surprise and makes the unit worthless - and we have only enlaps 'promise' that we will always have free access to the 'premium' service - considering their record, i'm not risking my projects on their word finally, given the number of problems already reported, i'm not even taking this toy out of the box - if anyone can use it please take it off my hands for $450 (yes $) including US shipping. steve@cascoly.com

Why am I being ignored? Both email and comments remain unanswered. Please let me know what is going on. I have been more than patient, but this is getting ridiculous.

Hello Antoine, It’s been two weeks since you told me my Tikee Pro would arrive, but I still have nothing. I have no tracking either. Can you please update me as to when I will be getting my unit? I have been more than patient, and would appreciate an honest answer. Thank you,

Review from Kickstarter
@Ben Appleton : We answered you on facebook but for the other backers please find below the answers : Upload behaviour depend on the timelapse type :
- For interval below 1min (short-term timelapse): All the pictures are uploaded at once at the end of the sequence.
- For interval of 1min and above (long-term timelapse) : The uploaded is triggered each 25 images, or each day (which one the shortest). For short term upload, If you stop the sequence manually, or in case of error, the upload is cancelled, and no retry will occur. (I.E you need to upload manually the picture to the web app). For long term upload, there is an automatic mechanism, so in case of any connection failure, the missed pictures will be uploaded during next connection. So for your try, among the possible causes, It may be one of these two points :
- The sequence have been stopped before the programmed end,
- The device was out of wifi coverage (or with reduced bandwidth) at end of the sequence. In any case, Tikee wifi connection is activated only when required (i.e when an upload or a test connection is ongoing). So you can try to monitor your network while running a test connection, you will see it connected for a couple of seconds. This explain why you don't see permanently the device connected. Let me know if you need more details.

@Simon Joss : Please find below to your comment : --> In the Fresh News #24 we have asked to all the backers to reply to this newsletter in order to have their premium account activated.
You don't do it but I have activated it anyway your premium account. --> To be weatherproof with external access to the SD card / SIM card and buttons we had to do compromise on the size of the connectors. --> As for many electronic devices the product is delivered with only a quick start guide, the full notice (more than 60 pages) is available in French and English on the enlaps.io. --> Please send an email to support@enlaps.io with your mobile brand and version if you want support on the bluetooth connection. --> On Short term time lapse (interval between 5s and 45s) the pictures are uploaded at the end of the time lapse, on a long term time lapse with interval >1 minute the pictures are uploaded all the 25 pictures (to save energy). For any technical question feel free to send an email to support@enlaps.fr

I ordered 3 Tikee Pros. All arrived safely today in Australia. I unboxed 1 to do some initial tests as I plan to use them this easter weekend to timelapse a huge music festival... after initial tests, it looks like i wont be able to do what i was hoping as the photos a: dont seem to upload whilst timelapsing (which was the whole point...). b: even after the timelapse doesnt seem to upload to the cloud c: says my wireless settings are connected but nothing actually working and i cant see tikee on my network d: cant do anything with the app unless my bluetooth is on and im close enough to the divide for bluetooth to work, otherwise, i cant log in.
All in all, huge disappointment thus far and i 100% agree with Simon on the physical units themselves -wtf guys - i thought i was buying a quality, well researched, well manufactured product...

Review from Kickstarter
Hi all I received my Tikee Pro last week after patiently waiting for more than two years - most of this time being a very badly communicated delay by Enlaps. Still, I was very happy to receive it, although most projects I wanted to use it for are history. Now what can I say? The whole thing is a huge disappointment. Spending so much money on a device and waiting for it for years. Then receiving this product: - A device which is full of sticky stuff. Probably glue residue.
- A very badly manufactured case:
-- Buttons badly responsive.
-- USB/slot panel being badly mounted and looks awful.
-- SD card can only be removed with pliers. The SIM card probably too.
-- The mounting bracket of the solar panel bends back and forth when adjusting the panel.
-- The locking mechanism of the solar panel is just a joke.
- No charger nor USB cable in the package. But the USB connector is built so narrow that a lot of micro-USB cables cannot be used with it.
- No proper manual delivered. The online manual is quite challenging and not intuitive. After the hardware being a disappointment, I hoped for it to be a good quality software and video result as this is somehow all that counts: - Bluetooth connection is constantly lost.
- The android app is badly responsive. Probably a problem of my phone, or me... who knows.
- The web app threw quite a lot of error messages at me and has a very high latency.
- Simultaneous shooting and upload of the images via WLAN doesn't seem to work. It only uploads after it finished the shooting. I thought this was a main feature?
- The disaster: The first time lapse I shot was laggy and poor quality. I seriously hope this will improve as otherwise the device is completely useless. All in all: Spent 499 EUR; waited more than 2 years; received something that is in every aspect worse than the cliché of Chinese products. I saved the absolute worst part for the end: Are you seriously putting a huge ugly Enlaps watermark on all videos unless we pay almost 150 Euro for a premium account every year??? I can accept the fact that this is your first product and a lot of big mistakes were made. I do not expect perfect products coming from a Kickstarter campaign. I purchased a plastic toy for 499 Euros – shit happens. But asking for money to be able to remove your logo from our private videos is just utterly wrong. Simon

Review from Kickstarter
Just got my Pro unit last week. I'm thoroughly disappointed with it. The quality of the product does not justify the long wait and price of it. *The power button needs to be started with an initial charge of the USB charger despite it being fully charged
* SD card once slot in is difficult to remove from the slot
* solar panel unable to close shut
* unable to connect with android phones
* enlaps web keeps getting error

Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine a few days ago, NY state. Haven't had time to fully check it out. There are no power adapters, no cables, a skimpy quick get started guide (although the guide does look well laid out). Probably more details online. Camera was double boxed. Outer box a brown box with no packaging material to protect the inner white box containing camera. My white box was crushed on the corner edges. Seems like outer brown box (shipping box) was handled roughly. I'm thinking since there was no protection for the white box, it got crushed due to harsh handling. Hope it works, since I haven't had a chance to plug it in yet.

I received mine today, but my world has completely changed (have a kid, new city, less free time), and I don't have the time to enjoy this. Would anyone be interested in purchasing my pro model? I haven't even opened the box :)

Received my Pro end of last week here in Switzerland. Excellent !
Looking forward to try it out as soon as possible.
Thanks to all who have contributed to this project, even though it took longer than anticipated, the final product looks great and I'm confident to get great results.

Bob S.... Antoine is full of shit. The delay on the US units has been interminable!! Why don't they simply call it a day and refund all non-European pledges?!

Review from Kickstarter
Yesterday Antoine told me via email,

"We have almost finished the shipment of the TikeePRO Europe version but due to a delay in the 4G modem for USA and Canada we don't have started the shipment to USA and Canada. In february the TikeePRO USA version will be produced and shipped.

Thanks for your patience,
Best regards,
Enlaps"

If the Tikee Pro units that were supposed to ship weeks ago to the U.S. haven't yet, you should post a new update with revised information.

Thanks for the update guys. That's great news. I am VERY excited to test out my TikeePro. As a professional Time Lapse videographer, I am hoping to incorporate it into my workflow. I regularly visit some of the most exotic locations on earth, and I hope I can start using it to capture them soon. Thanks again.
