Construction Site Security: Choosing the Right Mobile Surveillance Unit

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, WCCTV understands 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.
