It does not matter if it is a construction site, an office, a school, or your home; security is necessary. When you drop your child at their school, do you notice a guard standing outside? That guard provides you with the comfort of knowing your child is secured and safe. But security guards, while they provide security, have their disadvantages.
- A single security guard can not look over the entire site alone. You will need to hire more than one.
- Put yourself in the shoes of a security guard. All those long hours would make you prone to boredom.
- The cost of insurance is a significant disadvantage. A security guard is a tremendous liability.
- In the case of an event where the guard is the only witness, you have no method to corroborate his account of events to what truly happened.
A cellular security camera costs less than a guard does, provides video evidence to all events that occur on the site, and can monitor every inch of the site. A cellular security camera has an advantage. Unlike your everyday security cameras, which need to be connected to a network connection to relay a live feed, cellular security cameras relay a live feed through a cellular network.
A construction site, for example, may not have a network connection available. Cellular security cameras are also easier to remove and install in a different location. Cellular security cameras do not need a power source, making them easy to install and much more efficient since you can view the live feed from your phone at any time, anywhere.
