Do You Have a Construction Site That Needs Security?
No matter what type of site or event you need video surveillance for, we've got you covered.
Securing Your Construction Site for the Future
Use our Mobile Video Guard for short term and long term remote monitored video surveillance at residential construction sites, commercial construction sites scrap & recycling yards, utility infrastructure sites, equipment yards, and more. Businesses often use video surveillance to make sure that company property is protected. Video surveillance can help prevent theft and vandalism, provide real-time monitoring of critical areas, provide clear proof of an incident or accident and provide visual evidence of a crime for police investigations.
Install Security Cameras for your Construction Worksite
Mobile Video Guard is quick and easy to install in any construction site and requires no long term contract. There are options for units that connect to onsite power supply, a generator battery charged unit, and even solar powered options for those situations where no on site infrastructure is available.
Our systems are recording on motion 24 hours per day, saving footage for 2-4 weeks depending on level of activity on the construction site. During the most critical hours overnight, from 6pm to 6am our law enforcement experienced surveillance staff is monitoring activity at your site. They immediately contact local authorities when they observe something suspicious. Stopping crime before it happens!
Each unit is equipped with red/blue flashing strobe lights for crime deterrence as well as a loud speaker so that our operators can “talk to the site”. At a fraction of the cost of security guard services our solution provides a more comprehensive security solution at a far lower price.

Mobile Surveillance Trailers For Construction Sites
In the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area we have the option to use one of our mobile surveillance trailers. These surveillance trailers have all of the above listed features plus the added benefit of being able to be quickly deployed by towing to a site and setting up in 15 minutes. The trailers are completely self sufficient with solar panels built in to provide a power source.
Our Mobile Video Guard Trailers are equipped with a loud speaker that can play pre-recorded audio clips letting an intruder know their presence has been detected. Additionally, our video surveillance agents have the ability to remotely “talk down” a suspect and speak directly to them through the loud speaker. When a criminal hears someone describing exactly what they are wearing and doing they are much more likely to flee the area before committing a crime.
Hear the Warning Before Vandalism Takes Place
This quick 2 minute video shows some of our units in the field as well as plays the audible warning programmed in each unit.
Time Lapse Video to Secure Construction Equipment
At the end of every Mobile Video Guard Trailer or Pole/Wall mount unit deployment we provide you with a full time lapse video of your project. These are great to pass along to your marketing department for use in future advertising and marketing of your company.
Our mobile video surveillance systems can be equipped with a few optional items for specific site needs. The most requested optional item is our solar powered system used to power the unit totally off the grid. We also have thermal detection cameras for long range intrusion detection as well as fire detection. Lastly, there is an optional add on license plate recognition system.
Solar Powered System
Our solar powered system allows the Mobile Video Guard unit to be mounted on a pole, you supply the pole or we can provide one. The system has been engineered to provide up to 5 days of power to the surveillance system should there be complete blackout conditions.
Pole Mounted Solar System for Your Construction Site
Skid Style Solar System
Thermal Sensor Cameras
Our Mobile Video Guard systems can be equipped with thermal sensor cameras with thermal radiometry. There are two primary reasons to deploy thermal cameras at your site:
The sensors can detect even the slightest in temperature changes, down to .05 degrees celsius. When a temperature threshold is crossed the camera sends alerts to our Real Time Operations Center as well as email and text alerts . These are ideal for construction sites, manufacturing facilities, or any other location where the risk of fire is elevated.
Long Range Intrusion Detection
These sensors can also detect perimeter intrusions at long distances, up to 1,200 feet away. Ideal for extremely large sites with long perimeters where intrusion detection is critical.
License Plate Detection
Our units can be equipped with license plate detection if needed. The license plate lenses have a special filter that blocks out headlight glare to capture the front and or rear plate of any vehicle passing by it.
While not needed at every site, this can be a valuable add on when there may be a need to go back and find a license plate number to aid in an investigation.
Mobile Video Guard Applications
Mobile Video Guard units can be deployed virtually anywhere, but there are several types of locations where we are truly suited to be the best option you could choose to secure your site. Typically a location with a defined perimeter that has set hours each night where nobody should be present is the best fit.
Construction site security is essential, each and every day there are tools, supplies, and equipment left on site, oftentimes unsecured. For a criminal it’s as easy as walking through a hole in the fence and going on a shopping spree. Construction sites are excellent candidates for Mobile Video Guard because they are typically enclosed by a site fence that defines the perimeter.
Equipment and Storage Yards
Equipment and Storage yard security is oftentimes overlooked. Thefts from these areas are not only a nuisance but can cause job delays as well as run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses depending on what is being stored.
Utility Infrastructure Sites
These sites can go for long periods of time without anyone visiting them. They are oftentimes remote locations which only have personnel present when there is a repair or maintenance needed.
Protection for Scrap and Recycling Yards
Scrap yard security, junk yard security, recycling center security all may seem non-essential at first glance; but there is quite a bit of valuable materials in these locations. Whether it’s theives scavenging for metals like copper or someone taking parts off of an old car, at the end of the day these things add up and it’s all money out of your pocket. These sites are another perfect application for the Mobile Video Guard system, easily deployed and then let us take care of protecting your assets.
Car Dealerships Video Surveillance
Car dealerships often maintain extensive inventories of pricy vehicles. Their parking lots can be quite vast, containing many difficult areas to monitor and continuously observe. Over night video surveillance is crucial, particularly because visibility is low and thieves are more brazen.
Benefits of Mobile Video Guard
More Eyes on Site
When you hire a security guard company to protect your construction site after hours, in most cases you’re getting one security guard and possibly a patrol car. That car with the yellow flashing lights is a great deterrent to criminal activity, the thief casing your site now knows he’s got a person there to get by if he’s going to be successful. But that guard can only see what’s in front of him at any given time, he can’t see everything that’s happening on the site all at once.
With Mobile Video Guard we are installing one or more of our units at strategic locations around the site, each of those units has “eyes” that look in 4 different directions. Depending on the mounting location, if it’s on a pole the cameras can be aimed to see a 360° view. Our typical site has two or three units on it, that’s 8-12 different fields of view all watching at one time, sending analytic alerts to our operations center whenever there is movement.
Cameras Don’t Sleep
A common complaint from customers that have used guard services is that they would show up in the morning and find the security guard passed out sleeping in the patrol car. It’s understandable, most guards work this as a part time job and have a full time job during the daytime hours. But let’s face it, you’re paying a lot of money to have that person on site, you deserve to have them awake and alert.
Our Mobile Video Guard cameras never sleep! They are constantly sending information back to our operations center throughout the monitoring times and are watching and recording 24 hours per day. And in the rare occasion when one does “fall asleep” or more technically speaking goes offline, we are notified immediately and typically have it back up and running within minutes.
Evidence and Quality Control
Another great benefit to having Mobile Video Guard on your site is that with the 24 hour per day recording we can go back and pull footage from an incident to use for evidentiary purposes. This is not only valuable when a crime occurs but also to refute false worker’s compensation claims.
With our mobile application our customers have the ability to pull up all of the cameras on their site at any time and see the live view. This is often used for quality control checks as well as safety checks. Our superintendents and project managers often times catch safety violations, like not wearing PPE, when they’re not even on site. They are simply watching from afar on their mobile device.
Cost Savings through Video Surveillance
As mentioned above, hiring a guard service can be expensive. On average for a guard to be on site from 6pm to 6am 7 days per week it will cost about $8,500 per month. If you want to add in daytime, around the clock, hours on Saturday’s, Sunday’s, and holidays the price will jump to about $11,000 per month.
Mobile Video Guard customers on average save 65-90% off of those costs! On average our customers SAVE $122,400 on an 18 month project all while having a more secure site that they can log in and see at anytime.
