What To Look for In a Mobile Surveillance Trailer

Protecting your construction job site from security and safety challenges, including theft of equipment and materials, is an ongoing challenge.

Selecting the right mix of technology and security processes is vital. From a technology perspective, a mobile surveillance trailer is one of the most effective ways of preventing job site theft.

Specifically designed to provide all-in-one surveillance for construction job sites, a surveillance trailer can be deployed in minutes and operate regardless of onsite power and internet availability.

They can also easily move around your site to cover any new areas of vulnerability as the site develops.

Perhaps most importantly, they can be hired on a short to medium-term basis, so you only pay for the surveillance you need. 

However, before investing in a mobile surveillance trailer, the security technology experts at WCCTV have outlined a few key features you should demand from your system.

Access To Live or Recorded Footage

You should be able to remotely access your surveillance trailer 24/7/365 from any location. This should be via a mobile app, desktop software or, preferably, both.  

Easy access to live or recorded footage is essential; this will allow you always to have a complete overview of your sites’ operation, regardless of where you are - removing the requirement to be tied to a desk when reviewing videos.

WCCTV provides its mobile viewing software to all clients free of charge. This includes smartphone and tablet apps and a range of solutions for laptops and PCs.

Voice Down Systems

For maximum security protection, a surveillance trailer should have built-in voice-down features.

Voice-down systems allow for a live audio challenge to be issued to any suspicious individuals on your sites. Nine in ten times, this prevents a crime from occurring.

Unlike many other comparable systems, WCCTV’s mobile surveillance units allow for a live audio challenge to be issued.

A live audio warning offers the potential for maximum impact. For example, if an intruder is detected on your job site, you can quickly warn them off and inform them that law enforcement has been dispatched.

The video below shows exactly how effective this system is.

High Visibility to Act as a Deterrent

A mobile surveillance unit should be imposing in stature for them to work as a robust visible deterrent.

Their high visibility also means they can capture footage from every angle of your job site, providing 360° coverage and a detection area spanning your entire operation, and are completely autonomous.

WCCTV surveillance trailer stands at over 20ft and can be fitted with multiple flashing blue lights and sirens to create an unmistaken security presence on your site.
