About Construction Site Security
Protect your building project against theft, vandalism and crime day and night with mobile surveillance for construction sites. More affordable than 24-hour security guards, solar-powered construction site security systems offer round-the-clock protection without electricity or the need for a dedicated power source.
Construction sites are commonly plagued by a number of security concerns – most notably the theft of expensive raw materials. Unfortunately, stolen equipment and merchandise from construction sites is big business in the Mid-Atlantic region. Such theft leads to higher insurance premiums, construction delays, project overruns and serious cuts in profits. Installing a self-contained mobile surveillance unit is a critical step for ensuring construction site security and reducing losses.

High costs of not securing your jobsite
According to reports compiled by the National Association of Home Builders and the National Equipment Register (NER), between $300 million and $1 billion worth of construction site equipment and material is lost to theft every year in the United States. Law enforcement seldom recovers more than 10 percent of this pinched merchandise. These numbers only reflect reported thefts. Smaller equipment, such as power tools and jobsite materials are rarely reported to authorities, most likely because the recovery rate is dismally low.
The bottom line is that a secure construction site reduces risk of potential liability while increasing overall profitability. Whether thousands or millions have been invested in a building project, monitoring and protecting equipment and day-to-day operations is vital. Maryland Security Professionals will provide a custom surveillance solution that works for your remote security needs.
