Frequently occurring challenges on construction sites include robberies, vandalism and increased liability from site accidents. Security guards are usually high cost alternatives and sometimes are not able to prevent crimes from occurring. Insight Patrol specializes in using High-Tech IP Video Surveillance systems that can be viewed any time of day by operators during or after work hours, as opposed to using expensive security guards. Over the past years Insight Patrol has provided state of the art security for over 3000 construction work sites.
Insight Patrol systematically locates cameras at construction sites that are monitored by trained operators before and after work hours. We provide the equipment and finish the installation with no upfront or hidden costs. Our flat fee includes monitoring, equipment, software, support, video reviewing and access to your cameras. This is all done for approximately less than half the cost of a security guard, with the extra benefit of recording and saving site activities all day every day. Our video operators are here to help construction teams manage site activities to assist in projects being completed on-time for a fair cost.
Usually compounds that are not monitored are more prone to after-hour thefts, since people are usually not around to prevent crimes. Many criminals now know that most cameras are unmonitored and sometimes wear certain disguises to shield their identity. This reduces the risk of them being identified as the perpetrator. Copper theft occurs most frequently at construction sites. This equates to loss of materials and high costs to replace stolen goods, and also causes delays that can be just as expensive, or maybe even more expensive than the stolen goods.
Construction sites are known to have health & safety risks as there are always heavy machinery and varying weather conditions can further pose health risk. The Bureau of Labor Statistics of the United States revealed that there were nearly 5,000 construction site related deaths in 2014. Construction companies can be set back by millions of dollars by insurance investigations or workers compensation. Insight Patrol has successfully helped several clients conclude investigations in a timely manner or by providing detailed video discoveries of site events. In one year Insight Patrol creates over 10,000 videos for clients, the police and insurance corporations.
Fire can be a common problem, which can be very costly if not dealt with quickly. Insight Patrol cameras can be placed in areas of higher risk of fires, with operators trained to look for smoke or flames as the main focus. Notifying local fire departments of fire risk in real time can quickly resolve an incident that otherwise may have eradicated an entire project. Thermal imaging cameras can also be used in some situations to detect high temperatures, as a result preventing millions in costs relating to fire destruction.
Several sites are located in rural communities that can be difficult or costly to provide security for. Security guards can only provide limited security as they can only be in one place at a time, allowing for thieves to enter premises undetected. Insight Patrol security and video monitoring provides the ability to view several cameras at once regardless of where the project is based.
