How Mobile Surveillance Secures Residential Construction Sites

Residential construction projects face security issues on-site with trespassers, thieves, and even financial losses.

The right mobile video surveillance system can prevent significant issues impacting residential construction sites.

Replacing lost equipment, vehicles, and appliances causes project delays. Such delays could lead to your construction company gaining a bad reputation and having a financial loss for residential construction sites, not including the loss of appliances.

Below our security experts pinpoint the risks of a residential construction site and how to mitigate these.

Residential Construction Threats

Building Materials

Building materials like steel and copper are frequently targeted by thieves, leading to further project delays and being costly to the company.

Secondly, lumber heists from construction sites have caused a black market to be established as legitimate prices soar, contributing to the $300 million to $1 billion in construction losses per year.

Loss of sales

Insufficient security can lead to vandals breaking into the site and making it look rundown before it even opens.

Therefore, this leads to potential homebuyers steering away from the residential project as it sends a costly message to the public that the construction company cannot secure the site currently and mitigate crime
