Benefits of Renting Mobile Surveillance Cameras

Contact Us



Renting a mobile surveillance system to provide security at temporary projects such as construction job sites provides a number of key benefits.

The Benefits of Renting Surveillance Cameras

Mobile video surveillance systems are the most effective way of protecting construction job sites, parking lots, and properties from theft and criminal damage.

Having a security camera presence helps reduce and prevent theft, vandalism, trespass, and arson. WCCTV firmly believes that installing surveillance cameras can benefit every construction job site

They also have many additional benefits, including 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 investigations.

Choosing the best security system can be challenging, so if you're struggling to decide what cameras to use, WCCTV has compiled a helpful guide, which you can read here.

Once you've decided what system 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

Should I Rent or Buy Surveillance Cameras?

The critical deciding factor on whether to rent or purchase a mobile surveillance camera is whether you have a permanent or temporary surveillance requirement.  

If you own a commercial 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.  

Benefits of Purchasing Surveillance Cameras

Below are the key financial benefits businesses can derive from purchasing surveillance equipment outright.

Depreciation and Tax Savings

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 permanently deploy the cameras for several years, purchasing will 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.

Benefits of Renting Surveillance Cameras

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 sitting 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 depreciating assets over time. 


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 need 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 longer delay your projects by waiting for cables to be installed; you can install a WCCTV camera in minutes. 

Fully managed service 

WCCTV will provide a managed service that includes equipment installation, alarm monitoring, maintenance, and ongoing technical support as part of any rental agreement. We'll take care of everything and let you concentrate on what you do best.
