Protecting Construction Jobsites with Security Cameras

Whether you’re building residential or commercial in a crowded metropolitan area or you’re off the grid and out in the sticks, protecting your jobsite, equipment and costly building materials is a constant concern. When your crew has packed up and gone, your construction site becomes an instant target for thieves and vandals. If a couple of guys are walking around your jobsite after the crew has gone home, no one is the wiser. Passersby, even police patrol cars don’t know your schedule or who is supposed to be on jobsite, or when.

Your construction jobsite is a sitting duck for thieves and vandals, and they’re out there, just waiting for that 3:30 whistle to blow so now they can go to work…on your site.

Building Materials Aren’t Cheap – Don’t Just Give Them Up

The cost of materials like lumber, copper wiring, plumbing supplies and tools, and heavy equipment are increasing every day and are sitting there for the taking, or for the destroying, once your crew leaves the site. Unless you have security cameras in place, you’re setting the table for a thieves’ feast.

Even the smallest construction jobsites need security protection. Either one camera in the middle, if possible, or two cameras diagonally across from each other. If it’s a larger site, think about four cameras, one on each corner. You can never be too secure.

Best Security Cameras for Construction Jobsites

Not all cameras are created equal. Video surveillance security cameras for your outdoor jobsite need to be rugged, they may also need to be wireless and supplied with solar power. It depends on your power supply and location.

How much does it cost to have security cameras on your construction jobsite, very little compared to making up the cost of your new $100,000 backhoe loader that has just been vandalized.
