CCTV is an extremely important and beneficial aspect of your site
security strategy. This is because when you invest in site CCTV it can
significantly help to prevent the theft of your property such as construction
materials and tools- which can prove costly and inconvenient to replace. Though site CCTV cannot stop a theft
completely, various studies have shown that in areas across the world where
digital site CCTV has been installed there is a much lower crime rate than
parts with no site CCTV.
In addition to deterring criminals from breaking into your construction site, and creating clear evidence of the thieves and vandals that do try to break into the site, digital site CCTV can also be used to keep a close eye on the people on the site. This includes both construction site employees as well as any other visitors who may pass through the site at various points in the day. This comes in extremely useful for documenting any accidents and injuries which take place, as well as monitoring the actions of the staff. In some cases, construction site workers may try to take legal action against the construction company after suffering an injury or accident. Having the accident on tape is able to provide clear, conclusive evidence of the event safeguarding the company against any unjust claims.
Another great reason to have site CCTV on your construction or building site is to monitor the progress of large projects. Prospective clients are normally always impressed if they can watch the completion of their project on their own personal computers, courtesy of the site CCTV.
So there are a number of advantages of installing site CCTV on your building or constriction site- but how do you know which one is the right camera system for your site? There are three basic types of CCTV; box CCTV whereby you have to buy the camera lenses separately to the cameras. This camera model is designed and manufactured for indoor use, but can also be installed outside as long as the cameras are placed into housing built for outdoor use.
This type of camera is an extremely popular choice due to its versatility, and can be adapted to your own individual site requirements. The box cameras are put inside the mounting which is then attached to a suitable surface.
Bullet cameras are more suited to construction sites as they are made for both indoor and outdoor usage. There is also the added advantage that this type of camera will usually come with pre-installed LEDs which light the camera’s view, giving you better quality recordings.
Finally, the third popular type of camera is the dome camera which is able to take extremely high quality video recordings. These can be put up almost anywhere and often come with pre-installed infrared technology, are able to tilt and zoom and can even track specific objects.
