Enforcing building site security can prevent costly thefts

Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System helps enforce construction site security

Deploying specialist CCTV systems can bolster building site security and prevent tool thefts, which can easily amount to tens of thousands of pounds in losses for contractors.

This is exactly what happened in The Range building site in Plymstock, where a number of laptops and expensive power tools were taken during a theft which occurred sometime overnight between December 16 and December 17, according to a report in the local media.

A police spokesman said the thieves first broke into a temporary building where they stole at least two laptops and a number of keys to other temporary structures. They took power tools – whose value is estimated to be in excess of £10,000 – from three firms working at the site.

Tensor RDAPS – the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system for enhanced building site security

The Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection System (RDAPS) is the UK’s first and only Secured by Design accredited self-sustained security surveillance system designed to prevent crime and gather evidence in remote building 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.).

The Tensor Rapid Deployment Asset Protection Systemis totally transportable and can be re-deployed as frequently as required on multiple sites – in under 40 minutes. Our unique purpose built tower provides a platform which transports the system from site to site and when in ‘deployed-mode’ forms a self-contained secure working platform, functioning as a fully integrated remote video system.
