Benefits of Rapid Deployment Camera Systems

Implementing a mobile video surveillance camera program to supplement or as an alternative to fixed camera systems offers a multitude of benefits.

From reduced set-up costs and ease of installation through to scalability and future-proofing, WCCTV's clients across both the public and private sectors have benefitted from integrating rapid deployment public safety cameras into their monitoring strategy.

Rapid Deployment and Ease of Installation:

Installing a fixed camera system can be both time-consuming and expensive. The civils work required to run extensive cabling is a potentially disruptive process that prevents an organization from being agile in response to monitoring requirements.

WCCTV's Rapid deployment public safety cameras remove the requirement for such infrastructure, meaning they can be installed quickly and at a significantly reduced cost.

Flexibility and Redeployments:

One of the key benefits of Rapid deployment public safety cameras is the ability to easily move the cameras to a new location should the monitoring requirements change.

This is particularly beneficial should the camera's original purpose become obsolete either due to criminal activity in the area being displaced or the camera becoming obscured (by a new build, road layout change etc).

It is also ideal for tackling criminal activities such as illegal dumping where a reactive approach is required.

Temporary Applications:

Rapid deployment public safety cameras are ideal for providing temporary monitoring and security for short-term applications such as festivals, construction projects, political demonstrations and major sporting events.

Cameras can be quickly transferred from their standard locations to provide extra monitoring for the duration of any temporary event without an organization having to invest in additional fixed assets.


WCCTV's continuous product development and customer focused approach have led to ongoing improvements in its Rapid deployment public safety cameras systems. 

The WCCTV 4G HD Dome is the most advanced Rapid deployment Camera available, delivering high definition video at up to 25 frames per second over a cellular connection.
