Having a security camera presence helps reduce and prevent theft, vandalism, trespass, and arson. WCCTV firmly believes that every construction job site can benefit from installing surveillance cameras.
They also have many additional benefits, including delivering real-time monitoring of sites to assist with project management, video evidence of any accidents or injuries that occur on-site, and footage that can be used for law enforcement investigation.
Choosing the best security system can be challenging, so if you're struggling to decide what cameras to use, WCCTV has put together a helpful guide which you can read here.
Once you've decided what system you want to install, the next step is to decide whether to rent or buy the system outright.
WCCTV, the USA's leading provider of mobile surveillance cameras, outlines below some of the key benefits of renting a mobile surveillance system.
The critical deciding factor on whether to rent or purchase a mobile surveillance camera is, of course, whether you have a permanent or temporary surveillance requirement.
If you own a static business, parking lot, or oil and gas site, your surveillance requirements will likely be more permanent. WCCTV would recommend purchasing a surveillance solution such as a pole camera or surveillance trailer for these applications.
The benefits of purchasing a surveillance system for these applications are:
Ownership Benefits: Owning your surveillance cameras means you can depreciate the asset over time and benefit from tax savings. You can also move it from location to location as you require. WCCTV's cameras are plug-and-play systems offering total portability, so moving them couldn't be easier.
Long Term Cost Savings: Purchasing a surveillance camera outright will deliver cost savings over time. If you plan to deploy the cameras permanently for several years, then purchasing will absolutely be the most cost-effective option.
If your surveillance requirements are more temporary, such as at a construction job site, property development companies, or special events, WCCTV would strongly recommend renting a surveillance system.
The major benefits of renting a surveillance camera include:
Immediate cost savings: Renting a surveillance system means you are only paying for surveillance when you really need it, with no upfront costs and no surplus equipment sat on the shelf.
Easier procurement process: Typically, getting finance sign off for renting equipment will be less cumbersome than getting approval for a high-cost capital purchase. Renting means you can have your kit on site quicker without worrying about the need to depreciate assets over time.
Convenience: When you rent a surveillance camera from WCCTV, we will come and install the kit for you or send it to you to plug in and play. At the end of your projects, we will collect the kit or send it back to us. So you don't feed to worry about transporting or storing the cameras between jobs.
Latest equipment: When renting a surveillance camera from WCCTV, you can be sure you'll always receive the latest equipment and won't have to worry about your kit becoming obsolete.
Rapid deployment: Mobile surveillance cameras are quicker, easier and cheaper to install than fixed cameras. No delaying your projects to wait for cabling to be installed; you can install a WCCTV camera in minutes.
Fully managed service. As part of any rental agreement, WCCTV will provide a managed service that includes equipment installation, alarm monitoring, maintenance and ongoing technical support. We'll take care of everything and let you concentrate on what you do best.
