Comprehensive security systems – an important safety measure for any building site


Comprehensive security systems have become a very important safety measure for any building site, as they can help prevent and address theft, vandalism, and trespassing.

Modern building site security systems have to do a lot more than simply preventing the theft of tools and materials stored on site – they’re also designed to keep out trespassers, who could potentially put themselves in danger.

For this reason, these security solutions often include specific combinations of on-site guards, remote video monitoring, and mobile fleets of security vehicles, are becoming the standard.

CCTV video surveillance remains a significant component of any building site security system, especially since modern high-res cameras can not only easily pick up licence plates, but also allow remote supervisors to engage with intruders directly.

Using infra-red technology and video analytics, cameras can easily differentiate between persons, animals, objects, or vehicles, enabling officers monitoring them to talk down through speakerphones installed on site, or to activate siren and strobe systems to deter intruders.


Tensor has an extensive expertise in designing, installing and commissioning comprehensive integrated construction site security systems, from physical access control to video monitoring and management.

We have integrated its .NET suite of products to allow seamless integration between the CSCS SmartCard and our Access Control, Time Management, Visitor/Contractor Management and Fire/Evacuation roll-call systems, including turnstiles and biometric verification devices (facial recognition, hand scanning & fingerprint recognition).

Furthermore, we have developed the Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS), the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system designed to prevent crime and gather evidence in remote sites and trouble hotspots.

The RDAPS includes a high-definition camera system of evidential quality and a self-contained high-definition NVR platform with full video analytics capabilities, fully integrated 2-way audio and alarms, capable of delivering extensive remote location, building site and major events security.

Featuring a rugged, weather and vandal-proof design, RDAPS has been designed to protect assets located in vulnerable or remote locations, where current constraints exist due to a lack of power and/or communications. The system is equipped with a Solar/Wind Turbine charged battery system, as well as multiple wireless communication platforms (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, etc.).
