Equipment Yard Security

Security should always be top of mind, especially when you own expensive equipment that may be prone to damage or theft when you are not around. Having security protect your property and valuables if you run an equipment yard can go a long way toward keeping your assets safe and your company’s bottom line intact. 

There are a lot of security options to employ to keep your items safe, but video surveillance is like the best. It provides an eye in the sky to watch for suspicious activity when you are not there to check it out yourself. Mobile Video Guard has been providing such services through customized video surveillance systems and monitoring for years, and is always excited to work with companies to keep their operations running smoothly.

Keep Your Equipment Yard Secure With Video Cameras

Equipment yards are a common target for thieves and other criminals because they know that there is a lot of expensive machinery, told, and heavy equipment being stored there.

Important security measures to keep in mind:

  • You need around-the-clock security to protect the heavy equipment you have at your equipment yard, but having security guards patrolling the property 24 hours a day, seven days a week quickly gets expensive.

  • Video cameras are not only a viable alternative, but may be the best choice: Once you make your initial investment in the camera system — either to purchase or to rent — the ongoing costs are minimal and pale in comparison to what you would be giving security guards each pay period.
  •  
  • Vandals and thieves have also gotten smarter. They know that there is unlikely to be workers on your site keeping an eye on things overnight, which makes late-night and early morning the perfect time to hit the property if they want to steal anything. 

Security cameras are on 24/7 and are always watching your property. Criminals know that, so even having cameras visible in the yard is a good criminal deterrent. When a bad guy sees a camera, he knows he is being recorded and will likely think twice about hitting your property. Putting signs up that warn about video surveillance will also help to keep thieves out of your yard.

Evolutions in Security Camera Technology

With modern technology, security cameras are better than they have ever been. Some features that make video cameras an ideal choice for equipment yards include:

  • High-definition video provides crystal-clear footage that allows you to see what is happening better than ever before, including giving you a good look at anybody trespassing on your property.
  • Night vision allows your cameras to record its footage as if it was the middle of the day instead of the middle of the night. With nighttime being when equipment yards are especially prone to nefarious activity occurring, night vision is an invaluable tool to have to increase the security of your property.
  • Wi-Fi allows you to hook up your camera system to the internet so you can watch it and control it, even when you’re not on-site. The system can also alert you when there is unexpected activity in the yard, allowing you to find out immediately to contact authorities, increasing the chances of the police catching the perpetrators — possibly even while they’re still there.

Combining that technology with a team of security professionals who can monitor your feeds in real-time will make the solutions even more effective, as these guards can speak to perpetrators through mounted speakers, enact strobes or other lighting, or alert the authorities when a bad act is taking place. You’ll have immediate responses when someone tries to harm your property, keeping your equipment and grounds safe.
