The last thing any business wants when they’re trying to complete a building project is attacks from trespassers and vandals. Unfortunately, a site that’s unmanned is a likely target for criminals so it’s important to invest in the proper construction site security measures to keep your site safe and your project meeting its deadlines.
CCTV surveillance is a great way to deter trespassers from setting foot on your construction site. A CCTV system from Hikvision is guaranteed to be made to the highest standards of quality and are perfect for any property. It is important to ensure that you are placing your CCTV cameras in suitable places; check our post on the precise placements of CCTV cameras for more information.
Prominently displaying your CCTV cameras works as an incredible deterrent for would-be intruders. In the case of vandalism or theft, CCTV footage can act as evidence that will make prosecution easier.
Wireless Alarm Systems
A wireless alarm system comes equipped with infrared movement sensors which will alert the authorities in the case of your site being broken into. This means that the situation will be dealt with before it’s had a chance to become a problem. This saves you both time and money; wireless alarms are a vital solution to the problem of construction site security.
Keep Construction Sites Well Lit
Criminals are most comfortable operating under the cover of darkness. This is namely that it makes them harder to see and a construction site is more likely to be unmanned at night. Keeping the site well-lit is a simple but effective way to keep criminals off of your property.
Mobile Patrols Increase Construction Site Security
One of the most effective deterrents for trespassers or vandals is the use of mobile patrols. Physical guards will secure the perimeter of your site and stop intruders before they even set foot on the property. You can even opt for a dog-handler to be present on your property to act as further incentive to stay off of your site!
Secure Windows and Doors
It’s important to ensure that any windows and doors on your construction site are adequately secured. This means locking them but also, in some cases, boarding them up to stop intruders from breaking the glass and letting themselves in.
