Next generation of wireless alarms combat rising construction theft

Construction site theft is on the rise worldwide. Equipment, machinery and raw materials are easy to sell on the black market and difficult for police to trace, leaving job sites an easy target for thieves. This growing problem costs the construction industry billions of dollars each year in replacement costs and project delays. But as anyone in the industry knows, it’s difficult to secure a construction site. Traditional alarms and CCTV systems are costly to install and time consuming to configure, making them unfeasible for many job sites, especially unpowered locations, short-term projects and sites with multiple structures. This is driving many site supervisors to seek new ways of protecting their jobsites.
