Theft is a big problem on job sites and it’s next to impossible to lock up and secure all of the valuable items on a job site at all times. According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), there’s about a billion dollars worth of theft each year in the construction industry alone. ONE BILLION. That’s a lot of money to just be walking off of the job site.
There are many ways to deter theft on a job site, but a surefire way to do so is to take job site surveillance seriously by purchasing a Mobile Platform All-in-one Lighting and surveillance system from Totus Solutions. This mobile platform includes energy efficient LED exterior lighting with motion sensors that will turn them on if someone approaches, a 360 degree video camera to catch any and all activity in the area, a 60,000-100,000 hour life cycle, and the ability to log in remotely and speak through the platform on the site.
Instead of setting up costly cameras that don’t catch all angles and lighting that can’t record video, the Totus platform allows you to do all of that with one simple and easy to use software. You even have the ability to strobe the lights and pre-record messages that will play when the motion detection system is activated, adding an extra level of deterrence. No thief wants extra attention drawn to him or her.
According to the same report from the NICB we referenced above, only 21% of stolen equipment is actually recovered. With the ability to monitor the camera remotely and be alerted if an unauthorized person has accessed your site, the chances the suspect will be caught and your equipment or materials are recovered will skyrocket. With a seemingly high price tag of close to $45,000, the system could pay for itself if it deters just one theft of a piece of heavy equipment.
The video below shows you exactly how the system works and the added benefits to the all-in-one platform:
