Securing Heavy Equipment in the Yard without Power or Internet
SLT Construction Corporation has grown over the past 30 years to become one of the largest site work contractors on the Massachusetts South Shore.
SLT Construction has a fleet of more than 50 excavation and earth moving vehicles. Security of the vehicles in the yard was a major concern. The SLT team had installed CCTV cameras on the building, but these did not provide good visibility into the yard, and did not make it easy to track vehicles and visitors coming and going from the yard entrance.
Solar/wireless site security for equipment and laydown yards
SLT Construction set out to find a solution, searching the internet and talking to local camera experts. They found Sensera’s SiteWatch-PRO camera a good fit for their requirements.
SiteWatch-PRO monitors the SLT yard 24/7 with all of its power generated by the sun and built-in battery backup.
“There is no power at the Yard entrance that we wanted to monitor, so the solar/battery powered Sensera Systems SiteWatch-PRO camera was a good fit for our needs. This is the first time we have installed a camera of this type. The service and tech support that the Sensera team provided to help us configure and setup the camera has been tremendous! We have been very happy with the Sensera SiteWatch-PRO camera system.”

“The motion-detection feature allows us to capture images and generate events when vehicles enter or leave the facility. The camera includes built-in battery backup, and night-vision capabilities so we can operate it 24/7. The camera is small and light enough we were able to mount it right on the Quonset hut near our entrance.”—Terry Edwards, Project Manager, SLT Construction Corp.
SiteWatch-Pro includes an 8MP color imager for day/ambient light situations, and a high-powered white or IR LED-based illuminator for night monitoring. As well as a high-quality Optex long-range PIR sensor for motion detection provides motion detection at over 100’ from the camera.
