The Benefits of Mobile Video Surveillance Cameras

Implementing a mobile video surveillance camera program to supplement or replace wired security cameras can deliver significant benefits.

These benefits include a huge reduction on installation costs, faster installation times, and a more flexible and responsive approach to your crime prevention and investigation efforts.

WCCTV's rapid-deployment surveillance cameras are deployed all across America, delivering results for law enforcement, construction site security, business and parking lot security plus city safety and government applications. 

Below, WCCTV's Executive VP Adam Haworth, who has over 20 years experience in the video surveillance industry, sets out the key benefits of utilizing mobile video surveillance cameras. 

Rapid Deployment and Ease of Installation:

We all know installing a fixed security camera network is both time-consuming and expensive.

The construction work required to run cabling to cameras is a disruptive process that prevents your organization from being able to quickly deploy surveillance cameras at crime 'hotspots' or at temporary locations such as events or construction sites.

A mobile surveillance camera requires little to no infrastructure for deployment. WCCTV's Pole Cameras, for example, are a plug-and-play solution for video surveillance. Mount them to an existing poles, power by 110/240v mains are you're all set - it's as easy as Fix-Power-Walk Away.  

No power? No problem - WCCTV provides solar powering packs

No pole and No power? Still no problem, check out the WCCTV Solar Surveillance Trailer, a totally autonomous mobile video surveillance unit.

Flexibility and Redeployments:

One of the key benefits of Mobile Video Surveillance Cameras is that they are completely portable - so if your surveillance applications change, then you can quickly and easily relocate your cameras.

This allows for a strategic approach to surveillance that allows you to target crime hotspots to fight crime such as illegal dumping, gang crime, vehicular crime and provide business protection. Or if you're working on a construction site you can move the cameras as your projects develop. 

This capability is also beneficial should the camera's original purpose become obsolete either due to criminal activity in the area being displaced or the camera becoming obscured (by a new build, road layout change etc).

Temporary Applications:

Mobile Video Surveillance cameras are ideal for providing temporary security and surveillance for short-term applications such as public events, construction jobsites and sporting events.

The cameras can be quickly transferred from their current location to provide extra monitoring for the duration of any temporary event without an organization having to invest in additional units.

Ease of Remote Access:

The range of mobile video surveillance solutions provided by WCCTV, which includes pole cameras and mobile surveillance trailers, deliver live and recorded video via 4G LTE. 

Users of these systems are able to access their cameras at any time, from any connected device - or alternatively have them monitored by an Interactive Surveillance Operating Centre (ISOC).

This means users aren't tied to a computer to get access to their cameras.


At WCCTV we've continually invested in the development of Mobile Video Surveillance solutions, improving functionality, video resolution, live streaming speeds, onboard storage capacity and introducing a range of integrated accessories.

WCCTV's pole cameras also contain video analytics functionality for intelligent surveillance applications and automated security. and additional input channels, allowing the addition of secondary cameras such as LPR cameras, secondary PTZ cameras or static cameras for Time Lapse Video applications.
