How Smart Technology Is Improving Construction Site Security
The technology that’s making everyday objects smarter, from thermostats to excavating machines, is also improving construction site security. With the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), smart technology systems are reducing losses from theft and vandalism. Smart technology is making construction site security better.
The IoT connects devices through the internet for remote monitoring and control. This smart technology is available in security systems that allow project managers to remotely view live footage from wireless devices like smartphones.
We spoke with Jesus Medina about the future of smart technology and construction site security. He said the future holds deeper connectivity in smart technology.
Some of those technologies are already in play here at ECAMSECURE, such as mobile surveillance units, while others are in the experimental phase. We’ve used drones for aerial mapping and are exploring how the technology fits into remote monitoring. We’re also exploring audio analytics and aggression detection, which can detect sounds such as glass breaking, car alarms, gunshots and even tone of voice.
