We have started automatized photometric monitoring of active galactic nuclei using the 46 cm telescope of the Wise Observatory in Israel. The telescope is specially equipped with narrow-band filters to perform high-fidelity photometric reverberation mapping of the accretion disk in V $<17$ mag sources up to $z \sim 0.1$. Here, we describe the capability and accuracy of the experiment and present the first science verification data obtained for the Seyfert 1 galaxy Mrk 279.

With sub-day sampling over more than two months, and typical flux measurement uncertainties of $1\%$, we are able to measure inter-band time-delays of up to $\sim 2$ days across the optical range.
