What Can Construction Site Surveillance Do For Your Site?

Posted by Steve Mansell on February 1, 2018

A construction site surveillance system is comprised of strategically-placed, weatherproof, outdoor security cameras, exterior speakers, NVRs, video analytics, and trained security video operators. The rugged surveillance cameras record the activity at the construction site and stream the video to trained operators in a remote monitoring center. It's a cost-effective solution designed to help protect a property from vandalism, theft, and liability.

Watch the Video: Speaker Warning Deters Trespasser - Construction Site Security

At 2:01 a.m., a trespasser was seen tampering with a gate on a fence surrounding a construction site property. One minute later, he successfully gained access into the property. Following closely behind was a second suspect, who snuck in and hid behind an electrical transformer.

The dark night is no match for UCIT's construction site surveillance cameras that automatically adapt to lighting conditions. This gives the security operators a better view of any activity.

The construction site surveillance operator continued to watch the trespassers. The first suspect returned to camera view. When he attempted to climb a fence, the surveillance operator activated an on-site speaker warning. Both suspects left the construction site.

The Benefits of Construction Site Surveillance

UCIT sends equipment technicians to install surveillance cameras, NVRs, and other necessary hardware in strategic places around your construction site. The hardware comes pre-installed with video analytics that aid trained security operators in effectively monitoring your property. Our specialists will set up parameters for activity that the software will look for, as well as alert notifications. If the software detects something that meets the search criteria, it immediately alerts the security operator who will verify the activity, activate the on-site speaker, and if necessary, call police.

Construction sites have expensive outdoor assets that need to be protected, including equipment, supplies, and in some cases, appliances. Remote video construction site surveillance can help safely and effectively deter criminal activity. In addition, surveillance video can serve as evidence in liability cases to remove fault from your company by proving you took measurable steps to ensure safety.
