Everything You Need to Know About Site Security Cameras

Wondering if you should invest in temporary security cameras for your construction site? We promise that on-site security cameras are definitely worth the effort. In fact, they could even end up saving you a lot of money in the long-run.

Portable On-Site Security Cameras (For Building Sites)

Portable on-site security cameras offer the same security and protection as permanent installations with all the convenience of portability. Throughout the process of construction, a building site is ever-changing. So, you might need to be able to easily transport your cameras depending on your requirements. For instance, if your tool storage shed has to be moved part-way through construction, you’ll want to move your security cameras right along with it. Our cameras are the best in the market, with single and dual camera configurations and a 135 degree field of vision.

Why Your Construction Site Needs Temporary Security Cameras

Security is not something you should be thoughtless about. Having the necessary provisions in place to protect your site and your team is essential. After all, you never truly know what could happen and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Protect yourself from theft, vandalism, false liability claims and more with temporary security cameras.

The Most Important Features to Look for in Site Security Cameras

With a lot of cameras on the market, it’s important to know that you’re paying for the best possible protection—you want cameras that are state-of-the-art. Luckily, renting cameras for your site is often much cheaper than having to recover after an act of theft or damage. When choosing security cameras, you’ll want to consider everything from storage capacity, field of view, quality of vision, how capable it is at withstanding extreme weather, remote access and automation capability.

What Does CCTV Stand for? And How Does It Work?

CCTV might sound complicated, but it’s worth understanding how the technology works in order to choose the best system to adequately protect and secure your construction site.

CCTV cameras work by transmitting footage through a recording mechanism. This footage is either fed through a live feed and displayed on a nearby monitor or recorded for later viewing. Some devices can connect wirelessly and will transmit information via Bluetooth or your network. Whichever system you choose to go with, it’s important to make sure it meets your needs and provides the highest level of security.

Practical Tips for Construction Site Security

Construction site security doesn’t just stop at CCTV cameras. There are a variety of measures that you can employ to make sure your site is secure, safe and protected. Alongside temporary CCTV cameras, high fences are an absolute must. This not only ensures that your construction site meets legal requirements but also keeps the general public safe and prevents unwanted trespassing.

Furthermore, tools should be kept locked away in site cabins and containers. Often these tools are expensive and difficult to replace, so keeping them away from thieves is very important. Temporary lighting will keep your site well-lit during the night, when criminal activity might be most common, and security guards will protect the site at all times of the day, even when no one else is around.
