Redeployable CCTV Cameras for Construction Sites

CCTV Cameras have been used for security on construction sites for years as they provide an added level of overall security for assets like, plant machinery, tools and fuel. 

The system is designed for rapid deployment and combines an IR PTZ camera, wireless transmission via 4G transmission, a voice address system, battery back-up and an integral hard drive (up to 4TB) for evidential video recording into a portable and easy to install unit.

The system contains inbuilt video analytics to automatically detect intrusions onto your sites. The system's speaker can issue an audio challenge if a remote operator detects and verifies an intrusion.

Specifically designed to meet the requirements of developing construction sites, the system is fully portable and can easily be moved around your sites as security requirements change.

As the years have gone by, CCTV cameras have advanced with technology and what was once just a recording device has now developed features such as remote viewing, infrared & motion detection as well as live audio challenging when intruders are detected.

What is a Redeployable CCTV Camera?

Redeployable CCTV is described as a mobile surveillance system that incorporates live and recorded video, via an integrated motherboard within one portable housing.

To break that description down, a redeployable CCTV camera can be distinguished by:

  • Video transmission via mobile networks
  • Remote access to live and recorded video
  • An integrated hard drive for local storage capabilities
  • Quick & easy installation 
  • Full portability so you can move the camera as your project develops

The portability and rapid deployment nature of these cameras make them “redeployable”, and this key element sets them apart from traditional static CCTV cameras.

Typically, redeployable CCTV cameras are mounted to a lamppost, building or they can be supplied as a rapid deployment CCTV Tower to locations where power, internet and mounting facilities are not readily available. 

What are the different types of CCTV Cameras for Construction Sites?

As mentioned earlier, there are lots of different types of CCTV Cameras that can be used for construction site security like:

  • Static
  • Fixed
  • PTZ
  • Dome
  • Bullet
  • Infrared
  • ANPR
  • Covert
  • Fisheye
  • Night Vision
  • Wireless
  • Motion Detection

Depending upon your requirements you may need a combination of different CCTV cameras throughout your site, some PTZ cameras can have additional inputs meaning you can combine or add on other cameras to work together, like a PTZ Dome Camera that has a speaker attached that can play a siren or even sound a live audio warning to intruders.

Remote CCTV Monitoring for Construction Sites

Onsite security guards are expensive and rely on having someone in the right place at the right time to stop crime.

When cameras are combined with professional remote monitoring services, they become a virtual security guard - delivering an unrivalled, proactive security solution.

Unlike onsite guards, CCTV with remote monitoring doesn’t have blind spots, and won’t have lapses in concentration or call in sick.

That’s not to say that onsite security guards are obsolete. In fact, our systems can work perfectly in tandem with security guards, who benefit from a surveillance system that informs them when and where there is an intrusion.

There are plenty of benefits and advantages to using remote monitoring with your CCTV systems to improve the protection of your construction sites.

What is Remote CCTV Monitoring and how does it work?

Remote CCTV Monitoring is a cost-effective way of securing your construction site and your assets from criminal damage. CCTV cameras deter criminals, and remote monitoring enhances this by sending camera images to a security centre that quickly responds to any suspicious activity.

An internet connection is required, either LAN, WiFi or mobile connectivity like 4G/5G, so that the camera can send images to the monitoring station when unusual activity is detected. An expert can then manually log in to the cameras and identify if this is a threat or a false alarm. False alarms can be dogs or cats that have triggered a notification. 

If a positive threat is identified, an expert from the monitoring station will sound a siren with a live voice audio challenge to let the intruder know they have been detected and security services, or police, have been notified and are on their way to the site.
