Video Monitoring is a Cost-Effective Construction Site Security Solution

Posted by Amy Hite on February 20, 2018

There are several construction site security options, but many project managers opt for security guards. There's no doubt that having human presence on-site can go a long way to keep criminals away. However, with advancements in technology, live video monitoring is a more cost-effective solution, often with better results.

Increased Security Coverage

Many construction sites, especially larger ones, can take a significant amount of time to navigate. A security guard can only be in one place at a time and is limited by what he can see. Our construction site security solution includes multiple surveillance cameras, strategically placed near access areas, rooftops, storage sheds and other points of interest. These cameras are watched simultaneously, in real time, by trained security operators in one of our remote monitoring centers, from vantage points that may be inaccessible for a guard.

Cost Savings

A construction site would need to hire a team of guards to get the same coverage provided by live video monitoring. On average, a security guard can make between $12-$20 an hour. We can increase the security around your construction site by watching multiple areas simultaneously, for one all-inclusive fee.

Construction site theft results in monetary loss, and not just from stolen materials and equipment. Project delays and insurance costs can increase expenses, as well. Security operators watch for suspicious activity to deter crime before it happens.

Faster Police Response

Because construction site security operators watch properties in real-time, the live surveillance video verifies there is a crime in progress, which receives a high priority with police. This results in quicker response time and a greater likelihood of an arrest.

Less Liability

Security guards face many hazards in their job. Not only are they confronted by criminal threats, they are exposed to environmental conditions. Extreme weather can make it difficult for security guards to effectively monitor a construction site. Our operators watch construction sites safely from a remote motioning center via weatherproof security cameras to help protect your site from opportunistic thieves.
