Material Thefts, Project Delays and The Need for Security

Material Thefts On The Rise. Project Delays Ensue.

The ripple down effect on project schedules, costs and labor have been spiraling out of control and we can feel your pain. While we can’t stop criminals from accessing your site, we can deter, alert, and help in recovery.

Read the news any day of the week and you’ll find story after story of construction site lumber, appliance and equipment theft. What makes these thefts particularly painful is not only the cost of the equipment, but the cost of the delay to the schedule of every single milestone that follows. For example, your lumber is stolen so your workers cannot complete framing. This delays the electrical team who have to move on to another project, which delays the next milestone and so on and so forth.

Often times, law enforcement and GC’s look to nearby public or homeowner camera footage to help identify thieves or provide documentation for insurance, which is clearly not ideal. Fortunately, there’s a better way. Sensera Systems’ SiteWatch PRO2 systems offer 24/7 surveillance with real-time alert notifications (pushed to your email or mobile device via SMS) along with an image or video clip for immediate review, response and ability to share with law enforcement.

What many people don’t realize is that these cameras not only provide real-time monitoring and alerts, they also include GPS. Why does this matter? We recently had a customer who experienced a jobsite theft, including one of their Sensera cameras. Since our patented low-power technology enables our cameras to operate for up to 10 days (depending on model) with no power or network connectivity, the camera continued to record video and capture images. In addition, our cellular interface allowed the system to stay connected to the network, which ensured not only seamless coverage, but also allowed us to track the camera and provide a GPS location to local law enforcement. Authorities were quickly able to apprehend the alleged thief and stolen property, including the still recording camera!
