A dramatic switch from human guards to cost-effective smart technologies has been the trend in site security in the last year. Recent projects carried out by the construction specialist, VPS Site Security, have demonstrated savings of over 60% in security budgets, providing an improved, comprehensive security net 24/7 at lower cost.

Costain, GallifordTry, Carillion, Taylor Wimpey and Murphy are among the household names in the construction sector who are deploying CCTV systems to improve security and simultaneously cut costs, and the technologies are being highlighted at this month's London Build, at Olympia on 26th and 27th October.

Systems such as JCB Smart Towers, that combine the latest cameras with wireless networks, sensors and power sources, can protect even the most challenging environments like highway construction, day and night, from the safety of a monitoring station.

"Guard patrols have been the traditional approach to secure sites" comments Simon Alderson, Managing Director of VPS Site Security. "But a surge in technological developments have proven themselves in recent years, so that better 24/7 protection and safety can be achieved alongside dramatic cost savings."

"Mobile patrols may still be required, but even they are much more efficient when deployed with the support of towers, as they can help target problems quickly and efficiently." explains Mr Alderson.

The CCTV systems are also being used as safety tools and for traffic management, adding an extra layer of health and safety protection for construction workers and the public alike, providing both a safety audit and a deterrence to taking risks.
