Due to their ever-changing working environment, construction sites pose many security challenges, from theft and vandalism to project management and liability issues. According to the National Equipment Register (NER), the value of stolen construction equipment falls somewhere between $300 million and $1 billion, with less than 25% ever getting recovered. Conventional security guards are expensive and have limited ability to watch the entire site. So, what is the solution?
Stealth Monitoring’s customized live video surveillance monitoring solutions work in real time, to catch events as they happen. We watch when there is activity, not just motion, using a combination of video analytics and human intelligence. Our proactive solutions are typically 25-60% more cost-effective than traditional security guards and provide the highest possible level of security while minimizing liability. Our construction security video monitoring system has the added benefit of recording and archiving site activities 24/7. Our video review team is at your disposal, helping construction teams manage sub-trades and site activities to assist in projects being completed on-time and on-budget.
Many construction companies rely on security guards to monitor their sites, but they can be expensive, costing tens of thousands of dollars a month. Additionally, there are other constraining factors involved with guards including inadequate training, limited coverage, as well as a lack of confidence in their ability to do the job they were hired to do. With Stealth’s live video monitoring solution, you get a team of operators to watch your cameras, so you can rest assured that your property is always being watched by trustworthy, trained professionals.
Thieves often target construction sites for their expensive inventory and open space. In addition to the expense to replace the stolen items, the loss can cause delays that can be costlier than the value of the stolen goods.
Construction site liability is a growing problem. With heavy machinery, extreme weather conditions, and an abundance of moving parts, construction sites can be a health and safety nightmare. Not to mention insurance investigations and workers comp claims can cost construction companies millions of dollars. Our live-monitored security system can help protect you from liability by watching for risky situations in real time.
Many sites are in rural areas that can be difficult or costly to secure after hours. On-site guards can only cover so much ground. Stealth video monitoring provides remote operators the ability to view multiple cameras at once, no matter where the project is located.
If not remedied in time, fire is a common problem that can have catastrophic consequences. Stealth cameras can be placed in areas of vulnerability and watched by operators who are trained to look for smoke or flames. The ability to notify local fire departments of fire risk in real time can quickly resolve an incident that otherwise may demolish an entire project. Thermal imaging cameras can also be used to detect heat, potentially preventing millions in damages.

Remote video monitoring allows for cameras to view multiple parts of the site at once from vantage points that may be impossible for guards to access.
Live video monitoring gives authorities confirmation that there is an event happening in real time, which results in much quicker response times since the police raise the priority level when they can verify an incident in progress.

"We were able to secure our sites while saving close to 50% compared to using a guard but we were also able to save additional money by using the video to resolve incidents that occurred on site. We eventually implemented this solution on 13 sites and are prepared to use their solution in place of guards on future sites where applicable."
