An individual has robbed a residential construction site. The gloved suspect was dropped off before entering the unfinished apartment complex and removing sinks, light fixtures, and other lighting equipment. The exact vehicle that dropped the suspect off then returned after waiting down the road to pick up the suspect and stolen property. Authorities are reviewing the site’s video surveillance footage for more information about the suspects.
Why Video Surveillance Isn’t Enough to Protect your Construction Site
Construction sites are filled with valuable items such as expensive tools and equipment, building supplies, and fixtures that make theft a prevalent problem. Not only are these expensive difficult to replace, but the time it takes to replace those stolen goods and their rising costs and interrupt the project. In this particular instance, this construction site had video surveillance – so why was the suspect able to successfully commit the crime and escape?
Typical CCTV surveillance systems that are frequently deployed at these sites only record footage accessible remotely through cloud-based technology or stored for later viewing. This means they can just show you who or what is tripping an alarm at your site. There isn’t too much to do other than to see and record the security event happening and alert the authorities, allowing for a significant amount of time to pass for suspects to get away.
Imagine Having Construction Site Video Surveillance that can:
- Prevent construction site crime in real-time
- Increase criminal apprehension rates
- Protect your site, tools, materials, and equipment
- Be cost-effective
- Keep you from having to lift a finger
Remote Guard Intervention serves as a comprehensive, monitored video solution that takes security a step further because the system collects audio and visual data, checks for irregularities to secure the site’s perimeter, and provides you with mobile/remote access to live and recorded audio and video. Trained security operators can then intervene through the use of live, two-way audio talk-down features that deter trespassing and theft. This comprehensive intervention solution will increase the likelihood of priority police response, minimize losses, and increase apprehension rates.
Sounds too good to be true? It’s not.
Remote guard intervention allows security operators to catch intruders in the act, verbally warn, alert law enforcement for priority response, and monitor the situation in real-time. In most cases, remote guard intervention can get the intruder to leave the property before law enforcement arrives. Remote guard intervention can add immeasurable value to your peace of mind and your site’s overall security.
- It deters criminal activity and minimizes losses
- It increases apprehension rates and the likelihood of priority police response
- It offers trained operator support – meaning less headache for you!
Having video intervention via Live Remote Guarding by trained operators eliminates the need for patrolling security guards and security anxiety because any situation is immediately handled. If you ever require any kind of support, operators are always there to assist.
