Mobile surveillance cameras are typically associated with security-first applications, and they are frequently deployed to deter, mitigate, or catch the criminal activity that plagues job sites.
However, the growing demands of the ever-evolving construction industry have led to the ongoing progression in mobile surveillance camera capabilities.
WCCTV has provided surveillance cameras to the construction industry for over 20 years, and below, we outline some of the typical and more unique deployment scenarios for our systems.
WCCTV mobile surveillance units offer 24/7 protection for your job sites. Users can access them remotely via WCCTV's license-free software, allowing construction project managers to instantaneously receive live alerts of any intrusion onto the site via their cellphone or laptop.
They provide ultimate flexibility as they can be quickly installed. They are completely portable, meaning units can be moved around the site as it develops, eliminating any security blind spots. At the end of the project, they can be off-hired or packed up and taken to the next job if you choose a purchase plan.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, the base price of construction materials, including lumber, copper, and steel, has risen dramatically.
This, in turn, has turned job sites into a target for both opportunistic and organized theft. Every theft from a job site has multiple ramifications - the cost to replace items stolen, potential project delays, and increasing insurance premiums across the industry.
WCCTV's mobile surveillance units are highly-visible, protective theft prevention solutions specifically designed to deter, catch, and record thefts from your sites.
We can customize the camera profile on all of our units to ensure it meets the unique requirements of your job site, whether that's adding PTZ cameras, thermal imaging, license plate readers, enhanced night vision, and more.
It's likely your business will have multiple projects running simultaneously, and a construction project manager may have responsibility for two or more sites.
The live access capability of WCCTV's units helps reduce the number of physical site visits required to manage onsite issues such as safety audits, progress updates, inventory checks, and more.
Construction sites are one of the most hazardous environments for worker safety, with over 150,000 accidents or injuries occurring on construction sites annually.
Mobile surveillance units help site managers improve worker safety in several key ways. Firstly, the ability to remotely view a site in real-time allows for identifying unsafe working practices or potential hazards before they lead to injury.
Secondly, the recorded footage allows for the retrospective review of any accidents or near misses so that site managers can understand better the underlying issues onsite and learn to make future improvements.
WCCTV's units can be utilized to create a virtual fence line around your sites that will issue an alert as soon as someone breaches the perimeter.
An alert will be issued to either the site manager or our monitoring partners, who will initiate a complete theft prevention response to protect your assets.
Investors and other key stakeholders will have a keen interest in monitoring the progress of your construction project.
Rather than physically visiting the site, they can access live streaming footage from a WCCTV unit. Even better, we can utilize WCCTV cameras to create a time lapse video of the project.
WCCTV will fit a high definition 4K camera to any of our security units and program the system to record at preset intervals based on the length or nature of your project.
The video captured will then be edited by our video marketing professionals, who will create a final cut that our clients can utilize for multiple applications, including:
Digital marketing and PR
Performance reviews and future learning

In many cases, utilizing mobile surveillance units will allow construction sites to completely replace their reliance on guarding services as a means of security.
Surveillance cameras offer multiple benefits that a guarding service can't equal, including significant cost reduction, night vision, auto-detection, proactiveness, and continual alertness.
But some sites may not be able to or may not want to stop using guards completely. In these cases, a WCCTV mobile surveillance unit can work with a guard, enhancing their ability to respond to a situation.
Instead of guards having to watch live security footage from the site, WCCTV's units will instantaneously alert them to any situations occurring, allowing them to respond quickly and never miss an incident.
WCCTV's mobile surveillance units are constantly recording, keeping a visual documentary of everything that occurs on your site.
We have helped many clients resolve liability claims in cases of injuries that have occurred where the victim was trespassing or working outside of regulations.
Our cameras have captured vehicular accidents and even damage to the site caused by severe weather conditions, all of which have helped our clients quickly resolve any liability claims.
