An Eye Toward Safety and Security: How Your Construction Site Can Benefit from Security Cameras

Construction site security frequently tops the list of the biggest concerns in the construction industry. From deterring theft and vandalism to ensuring worker safety, installing a security camera system on your construction site is essential. Regardless of the location, size, or phase of your project, security cameras offer an efficient way to improve the overall security of your construction sites. Join us as we explore the benefits of surveillance cameras and what you need to make your site more secure.

Deter theft and crime

Most construction sites have expensive equipment and materials on hand to complete the building project. For thieves and other nefarious actors, stealing these items from an unmonitored construction site is like taking candy from a baby. Thieves are less likely to attempt to steal from sites that are conspicuously covered by security cameras. Investing in security cameras can help deter thieves and spare your company from monetary and equipment losses and property damage.

If you do find your site has been visited by thieves or vandals, your security camera system can help police accurately identify the perpetrator. Knowing the identity of your thief increases the odds that police will be able to recover the items taken from your construction site and aid in their prosecution.

Enhance productivity and safety

In addition to security benefits, your surveillance cameras can also help enhance the productivity and safety of your construction site. When employees know that their work is being monitored, they tend to work more productively. Since time is always your enemy in the construction industry, keeping your operation running more efficiently can help your security system pay for itself!

Safety is always a serious concern on construction job sites. Reviewing security camera footage allows managers and safety directors the opportunity to identify workers that are not following established safety protocols or areas that may pose significant safety risks. Additionally, this footage allows management to identify areas for improvement and determine areas where additional training may be required to help ensure worker safety.

Power is a must

When looking at installing a security camera system on your construction site, the number one prerequisite is power. You must have access to a power source anywhere you want to have security cameras installed. Since your construction trailer most likely has access to constant power, this is the ideal location for mounting your cameras. Anywhere else on your construction site with access to power can be connected back to the video recorder using a remote connection.

We offer a wide array of security camera types with many different features. Our standard cameras are 5 megapixel and we also offer weatherproof and Pan-Tilt-Zoom cameras so you may be surprised how well you can see your construction site from just a few cameras mounted on your trailer.

Base of operations

Your construction trailer is not only the preferred mounting location for your cameras, but it’s also likely to be the most secure on-site storage option for your video recorder. Our experts can work with you to determine the ideal amount of storage your project needs and how long you need to retain footage. If you have access to power in other locations around the construction site, we can also add cameras in these locations and connect them back to the video recorder using a remote connection.

Remote viewing options

All of the security camera systems we sell feature the latest remote connectivity options. Remote access allows you to view a live stream from your security cameras and recorded footage from any mobile device or computer. With remote viewing, your security team can keep an eye on your construction site from anywhere, anytime.

Remote viewing requires an internet connection at your construction site, but you can still view your cameras on site without it. If you want or need remote access to your camera, but don’t have an internet connection on site, we can help with wireless Cradlepoint Hotspot rentals. This solution allows you to easily monitor your site 24/7.
