Professional Monitoring for Construction Site Surveillance

Command interface displaying footage captured by construction site surveillance system

Remote security monitoring is a process that allows security professionals to keep an eye on your jobsite from afar 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Step 1: Choose the Cameras for Site Surveillance

You begin by determining which cameras will be watched and at what times. Verkada’s high-tech AI analytics then notify on-call security personnel whenever a human is detected at the scene.

Step 2: Security Officer Checks for Danger

Second, when an alarm goes off, the monitoring agents will look at the footage to see if anything is in immediate danger.

Step 3: Security Officer Responds to Incidents

Ultimately, if there is a real danger, the monitoring agent will immediately contact the customer’s call list. In the event of an emergency, customers can also request that agents contact the appropriate authorities. With reduced emergency response time, professional monitoring is a must for construction security systems.

People Analytics for Construction Site Surveillance
