What's The Best Way To Secure Your Construction Site Or Compound?

construction_siteConstruction sites and compounds frequently have security problems, break-ins after dark, and employee pilfering during the day.


One of the best preventative measures I recommend to stop these types of crimes, is to install a remotely monitored CCTV camera surveillance system that will automatically trigger an alarm when a potential criminal event occurs. 


This is not a conventional CCTV system that just records what takes place, this is a Sonitrol construction security system, called SonaVision, that instantly relays or "pushes" the video stream to a 24/7 central monitoring station, where professional monitoring staff can view and assess if the activity is potentially criminal, or just a false alarm.


How Does This Type Of "Push" Security Technology Work?


In the event that an alarm is triggered, Sonitrol’s unique push technology notifies the central monitoring station immediately.  The transmission and review of the push video is achieved in seconds.  If the criminal activity is verified, police, not security guards, are dispatched, responding in an average time of only 3.5 minutes, catching the criminals red-handed!


You Can Also Watch And Monitor Your Construction Site And Compound Remotely


SonaVision surveillance technology also allows you to remotely watch what’s happening on your construction site, compound or around buildings, through a series of cameras effectively placed in key locations such as blind spots, high-traffic areas and along your facility's perimeter.  You can watch from anywhere over the Internet.


When you’re off-site, you can remotely access video surveillance of your property to evaluate employees and procedures from anywhere. For example, you can watch that the suppliers deliver the correct amount of product, or that your premises are properly locked up at the end of the day ... and you can watch and monitor suspicious employees who might not be acting in your best interests.


SonaVision helps you gain more control of your business when you’re away, and after business hours, and acts as a form of supervision while you’re away.  It reduces opportunities for employees to pocket tools and supplies without your knowledge and also acts as an effective visual deterrent for theft. 


If you manage remote locations, SonaVision is an ideal option to increase levels of supervision.  Security cameras can be set up using dial-up, an Internet/Web Based service, or even through wired hydro or battery in remote locations.


Add Managed Access And You Have A Fully Integrated Security Solution That You Control


SonaVision verified video technology for construction site security can be enhanced by combining it with other Sonitrol technologies, such as managed access giving you the best way to secure your construction site or compound.


Managed access is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to increase security on your site.  Managed access will restrict unauthorized persons from entering secured areas while also helping you control employee access.  This limits risk of internal theft and external threats. This form of controlled access when combined with video surveillance gives you more oversight of your facility's activity while saving you money and time.
