Construction Site Security: Choosing the Right Mobile Surveillance Unit

Learn more



Mobile Video Surveillance cameras are the ideal solution for construction job site security, but which one is right for your site?

Choosing the Right Construction Site Security Camera

Construction sites face a wide range of security challenges, from trespass and vandalism to more serious crimes such as arson and the theft of tools, materials, and machinery. 

The impact of these crimes can be devastating, causing significant delays to projects and major financial losses. 

One of the most proven forms of security for construction sites is mobile video surveillance cameras; they provide a visual deterrent and act as a virtual security guard for a fraction of the cost. 

As an experienced provider of mobile surveillance cameras for construction sites, we understand that one size does not fit all when it comes to mobile surveillance units. Job sites can be unique from one site to the next, and each will face different security challenges.

That's why we have developed a customizable range of job site security cameras that can be adapted to your site and evolved as your project progresses.

Below, we outline the range of solutions we can offer and the types of site they would suit best. 

Solution 1: Pole and Power Available

If your job site has onsite power facilities and a pole or building to mount security cameras, we recommend deploying a Pole Camera.

Key features of our Pole Cameras include:

  • Built-in LTE for video transmission

  • 1080p resolution PTZ camera

  • Infrared (up to 650ft) for night vision

  • 4TB of onboard video storage capacity 

  • Built-in video analytics

  • Free, unlicensed viewing software (desktop and mobile app)

  • Customization options*

Pole Cameras are quick and easy to install (20 minutes, 1 person), can be mounted to any existing utility pole or building, and quickly moved as your job sites develop.

Solution 2: Pole Available, No Power

If your job site has a pole for mounting a security camera but doesn't have powering facilities, then we would recommend a solar-powered pole camera.

The solution comprises a Pole Camera, solar panel, and a long-life battery built into a secure enclosure mounted to an existing pole.

Key features of the Solar Dome Pole Camera include:

  • Autonomous power via solar array and battery

  • Built-in LTE for video transmission

  • 1080p resolution PTZ camera

  • Infrared (up to 650ft) for night vision

  • 4TB of onboard video storage capacity 

  • Built-in video analytics

  • Free, unlicensed viewing software (desktop and mobile app)

  • Customization options*

If you don't have a mounting pole, WCCTV can still provide this solution and a customized pole to suit your viewing and monitoring requirements. Click the link below to learn more.

Solution 3: No Pole, No Power

For construction sites with the most limited powering and mounting infrastructure availability, we would recommend utilizing a Solar Surveillance Trailer.

Solar Trailers can be rapidly deployed at practically any location, and can easily be moved as your applications change.

Key features include:

  • Provided with up to 4 WCCTV pole cameras

  • Compact and easy to transport - towable by most vehicles

  • 20-foot telescopic mast - rotates nearly 360 degrees

  • Quick and easy to install 

  • Integrated LTE connectivity

  • Free and unlicensed viewing software

  • Year-round autonomy

  • Integrated 4TB SSD internal storage

  • Built-in video analytics for intelligent surveillance
