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

At 9:00 p.m., a trespasser walked towards a gated area of a commercial property. A UCIT construction site security system operator activated the on-site speaker, causing the trespasser to leave the property.

How to Protect Larger Construction Sites from Trespassers and Thieves

Trespassers, thrill seekers, and thieves target construction sites for various types of criminal activities. Builder, an online publication, reported that 90% of respondents said their construction sites were hit at least one time the prior year.

Securing construction sites presents unique challenges, different than those that come with safeguarding warehouses, shopping centers, and other types of commercial properties. In addition to multiple access points, there are expensive equipment and materials left unsupervised on the property and a subcontracting workforce that changes on a daily basis.

It's important to work with a security company who specializes in construction sites. For more than 14 years, UCIT has been replacing and supplementing security guards on construction sites with high-tech IP video security systems that are viewed in real-time by trained operators. Our security specialists will meet with you to discuss important factors like number of access points, location of the construction project, as well as the types and size of equipment that will be stored on the property.

UCIT provides construction site security system hardware and software, installation, servicing, monitoring, and video review for one, all-inclusive price. The fee also includes live access to outdoor surveillance cameras and video review.

Construction site security system operators watch multiple areas of a property at one time. Paired with video analytics, the operators can determine if any movement or environmental change will put the construction site at risk. If they see any suspicious activity, they can activate an on-site speaker. This lets trespassers know they are being watched. If the suspects remain on-site or if the situation escalates, they can call local police. Unlike traditional security guards, UCIT's construction site security system operators can continue to effectively watch a property, despite extreme weather conditions.
