Video Surveillance for Job Site Security
Security on a construction job site can be a difficult task - vandalism is common, theft of materials is a growing concern, and the outdoor nature makes it hard to restrict access. Utilizing an outdoor video surveillance system can make it easier for you to manage your site's security while reducing workplace accidents and theft.
Your construction site will require specialized equipment, but working with an experienced surveillance partner can help you build the best system for your needs. Outdoor cameras can weather extreme temperatures, rain, and the dust from construction.
If you're worried about damage to the cameras (either from vandals or equipment), vandal-proof cameras have specialized domes that can withstand sharp blows and hits. Many of these cameras also have tamper alarms, which can notify you of an attack when you're off-site.
When installing your surveillance cameras, pay attention to two specific areas - the perimeter of the site, and the area you store tools and materials. Securing these spaces make it easier for you to monitor activity at the site after hours so you can respond quickly to trespassing, vandalism, or theft.
Remote monitoring makes it incredibly easy to stay connected to your job site. Available for Android and Apple smart phones and tablets, these apps allow you to see a live feed from your cameras, review recorded video, and manage alerts. This ability to monitor your job site at any time, from anywhere, can help deter theft and reduce workplace accidents.
