Video Surveillance Solution Helps Protect Gated Construction Site

Posted by Steve Mansell on January 12, 2018

A video surveillance solution can help increase security at your construction site. Oftentimes, construction sites have fences outside the perimeter. A fence by itself is unable to deter determined thieves who can easily cut a hole in it or jump over it. An outdoor security camera system can be a more effective construction site solution. However, unwatched cameras are unable to stop a crime in progress. At best, they can record the activity to be used as evidence after the fact.

What can happen when the security solutions mentioned above are paired with live video monitoring?

Watch the Video: Responding Police Arrest Construction Site Trespasser



At 3:00 a.m., a trespasser entered a gated construction site. A trained video surveillance operator followed the suspect's movements with a PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) surveillance camera and called the local police.

The suspect entered one of the fenced-off areas. Responding police officers made contact with him and placed him under arrest.

The Benefits of Video Surveillance

A video surveillance system can replace or supplement security guards on construction sites with high-tech IP video cameras that are viewed in real time by construction site security operators who can provide updates to responding police officers. This information can include identifying features, activity and location of the suspects. Live video helps improve police response time because it verifies a crime in progress.

Our live video surveillance solution can also aid in liability protection in insurance investigations and workers' comp claims. Additionally, state-of-the-art time lapse capabilities can record the progress of a project and provide a video for status updates or marketing purposes.

A construction site security specialist can evaluate your site and make recommendations about camera positions, internet connections, and other relevant security components. Fences, additional lighting, and live video surveillance can protect your project sites in Canada and the United States.
