Construction Site Security: Choosing the Right CCTV Camera

17 Aug 2021

Construction sites face multiple security risks including trespass, vandalism, arson attacks and the theft of tools, materials and machinery. 


These crimes have a devastating impact on construction projects, leading to significant delays and financial losses. 

CCTV is the most proven ways of preventing construction site crime; they provide a visual deterrent and act as a virtual security guard at a fraction of the cost. 

As the UK's leading supplier of rapid deployment CCTV for construction site security, WCCTV understands that one size does not fit all when it comes to which cameras to use. 
Construction security requirements can be unique from one site to the next, and each will have a different risk profile.

That's why WCCTV has developed a complete range of customer-driven CCTV systems that can be adapted to any site and evolved as a project progresses.

Below, we outline the range of solutions we offer and the types of site they would suit best. 

Solution 1: Onsite Power Available
If your construction site has onsite power facilities, we would recommend using WCCTV's HD Eco Tower.

WCCTV's Eco Tower is powered by a long-run battery offering up to 150-hours of backup power.

This will allows the system to run autonomously overnight or over weekends, meaning you can shut down generators and help your sites save on fuel, noise and pollution.

Other key features include:

*Environmentally friendly powering*Wireless detectors provide an invisible perimeter*Industry-leading ruggedised PTZ camera with IR capability*4G, 3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi and IP connectivity*Remote access to evidential recorded digital footage*Audio challenges and siren alarm capability*Free, unlicensed viewing software*Ongoing health check, alert raised on camera failure, camera masking/jamming, hard drive failure/capacity limit

The WCCTV Eco Site Tower can be provided as a standalone solution or as part of a fully managed site security service - including survey, installation, monitoring, maintenance, redeployment and 3rd party key holder escalation.


Solution 2: No Power Available
If your construction site has no power facilities, we would recommend using the WCCTV HD Solar Fuel Cell Tower.

The Solar Fuel Cell Tower is powered by a methanol fuel cell cartridge backed by a high-performance solar panel which reduces fuel consumption and increases the system's autonomous run time to 20 weeks before a refuel is required. 

Other key features include:

*No external tanks or cages for fuel
*Environmentally friendly powering
*Wireless detectors to provide an invisible perimeter
*Industry-leading ruggedised PTZ camera with IR capability
*4G, 3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi and IP connectivity
*Remote access to evidential recorded digital footage
*Audio challenges and siren alarm capability
*Free, unlicensed viewing software
*Ongoing health check, alert raised on camera failure, camera masking/jamming, hard drive failure/capacity limit

The WCCTV HD Solar Fuel Cell Tower can be provided as a standalone solution or as part of a comprehensive security service that covers survey, installation, maintenance, alarm monitoring, response and monthly reporting.

Solution 3: Trackside Projects

If you are undertaking a construction or renewal project on or around rail tracks, we would specify the WCCTV Network Rail  Type Approved CCTV Tower. 

It is the only rapid deployment CCTV tower with PADS approval for track-side deployment due to its non-conductive design.

Its key features include: 

*Industry-leading ruggedised PTZ camera with IR capability as standard
*Multiple powering options for optimum flexibility
*4G, 3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi and IP connectivity
*Remote access to evidential recorded digital footage
*Free and unlicensed viewing software
*Battery back-up activated and alarm raised on power disconnection
*Audio functionality
*Low battery alerts
*GPS location information
*4TB local recording

WCCTV Rapid Deployment CCTV Towers

Solution 4: Complex Sites/Critical Infrastructure
For large construction sites or critical national infrastructure locations with complex detection areas, we would recommend the WCCTV Thermal Smart Tower.

The system's additional thermal imaging cameras and/or thermal infrared PTZ cameras contain edge analytics running high accuracy alarm detection rules.

The Smart Tower is fully approved for CPNI security applications but is also ideal for large construction sites where cable jointing, OHL/OLE and cable trenching work are occurring.

Key features include:

*2x Industry-leading ruggedised PTZ cameras with IR capability as standard
*Multiple thermal detection cameras
*Advanced edge analytics
*High accuracy alarm detection rules
*Wireless detectors to provide an invisible perimeter
*4G, 3G, GPRS, Wi-Fi and IP connectivity
*Remote access to evidential recorded digital footage
*Multiple powering options for optimum flexibility
