Benefits of Construction Site Security

by Guest on Aug 24, 2017

While the robbery of a house is alarming and distressing, even before the structure can be built, theft takes place. We are speaking of a construction site. Construction sites are a hotbed of activity. Workmen, equipment, tools, materials, activity- you name it, it’s all there. It’s a fluid situation and it comes with its own share of issues.

Normally when we have things that are valuable, we try to restrict access to them. It’s only at a construction site that it’s all out there- sand, bricks, timber etc. This makes a site an easy target. A house or building that’s partially built is also vulnerable. It might have partial fixtures and fittings, making it a lucrative space to tap. Sometimes it’s just plain mischief, where an individual may want to willfully damage the property, perhaps shatter a pane of glass or spray paint surfaces, all requiring costly rework. It could be something as simple as kids trying to sneak in on a dare or for a thrill, maybe to smoke up or share a drink or two. Vandalism could be a motive or a quiet venue may be required for something illegal. A construction site post sundown is an irresistible space for any number of reasons.

Whether it’s human negligence or determined thieves, construction sites have their own troubles. Even with a fence and a gate, its safety is not foolproof. Thus, construction site security becomes vital to ensure smooth work progress.

For many people this means manned security- an individual or a team that patrols round-the-clock to help keep the space safe. This can be expensive and impractical because humans can be overpowered. Wired alarms can be disabled as well. CCTVs are highly costly and need constant monitoring and upkeep. What’s more, in the dust and chaos of a construction site, they may not last too long. What is needed is something efficient and economical. A wireless security system is the smartest solution here.

It can cover vast areas, even if they are a kilometer apart. The system can be used across spaces and things- not just machinery, but also building structure and scaffolding. This kind of security keeps an eye on the outside and peripheries too. Since the entire system is wireless it can be installed, removed and repositioned pretty easily. Connect it to an alarm or camera and you can get pinpointed activity. A wireless system also has a huge advantage- it doesn’t need power and telecommunications to work. This is a huge boon during shutdowns and blackouts where the site is especially vulnerable.

If you’re considering construction site security, do keep the following in mind:

  • The provider should have a track record of dependability.
  • The material used for the security should be hardy and of great quality. No shortcuts here.
  • It is monitored at a different location by trained technicians all the time.
  • It is flexible and easy to work with even by the client, when required.
  • If there is a need, GPS tagging should be able to track vehicles stolen from the site.

Construction sites can also be kept safe thanks to wireless security systems.
