Theft and other crimes continue to pose a major threat to construction site owners within Gibraltar. This is all due to the lack of CCTV in Gibraltar protecting our construction sites and properties.
Without the correct security measures in place, construction sites become a target for thieves, vandals and other trespassers, which can result in loss of assets, project delays and rising insurance premiums. All of this can be detrimental to a small or medium-sized business.
Well positioned, correctly installed security cameras can ensure your construction site or property is protected always. The use of outside CCTV cameras isn’t widely used enough within Gibraltar.
To be as effective as possible, CCTV cameras must be set up so that they can capture the areas that most require monitoring, to ensure that any potential threat is detected and acted upon immediately. You will generally find that cameras positioned higher up can capture a wider area, whilst also being harder to intercept by would-be criminals.
You should look for a company such as us; AJ Security who will view the construction/property site and will give a free quote on how much the outside CCTV cameras will cost to monitor by fully trained security operators.
Good lighting is a proven method for deterring unwanted trespassers, particularly in dimly lit areas or where a construction site is left unattended overnight. Likewise, during the winter months when it gets dark earlier and many sites close down during the Christmas break, it is crucial to ensure your lighting remains up-to-scratch. This is why AJ Security suggests Infrared Security Cameras alongside deterrent construction lighting within Gibraltar.
With any CCTV system, a time will come when the system fails and some additional support is required. Before commissioning a CCTV system, it is vital to ascertain whether your supplier will provide ongoing tech support and regular maintenance checks as part of their package. Any quality supplier will include this as part of their end-to-end service.
