It may come as a surprise to learn that security camera technology has been in existence for close to a century, dating back to the 1920s. Over the next three decades, the accessibility of security cameras would evolve greatly. For a time, these cameras were strictly available to the U.S. military and European forces during WWII. Eventually, they would become attainable for American businesses — and, soon thereafter, accessible to many homeowners.
Solar-powered security trailers have become the new gold security standard for environments where there is little to no access to electricity, including parking lots, construction sites and other remote locations. They have proven to be a highly effective means of reducing incidents of theft, from the materials and tools theft that is so common on building sites, to the auto theft that has skyrocketed all over the country in recent years.
When a home is under construction, the contractors and workers on duty are expected to be diligent guardians of the construction assets inside the home, from the raw building materials to the electronic appliances. But if you’re a contractor, you understand that you and your crew members can’t be onsite 24/7. The time you spend away from the home, whether it’s overnight or a few quick minutes, leaves a window open for thieves to break in and steal the valuable assets for their own gain.
Security Trailers proudly serves the Quad State Area, a region that has both the highest and lowest auto theft rates in the nation (depending on the state). In each of the states that we service with our solar powered security trailers, here is the most recently available data on annual auto thefts by state.
A solar camera trailer is a great security solution for construction sites and other types of worksites that may be located remotely. Because these units are charged by the power of the sun, they’re ideal for job site locations with no electrical connection (even sites that are located fully off the grid). But if that’s all you know about these trailers, you may ask: What else do I need in a solar camera trailer? As you shop around, here are some of the other critical features to look for.
The construction industry is highly seasonal, and the chilly weather at the end of November typically signals the beginning of the offseason. If you are a construction industry professional running your own operation, this can be the best time to make a prioritized list of productive offseason activities to complete before business picks back up in the spring. Here are some offseason activity ideas to put near the top of your list.
Typically, building and construction operations all across the country tend to slow down over the winter holidays. Many jobs will take a pause for a minimum of several weeks, if not for the entire holiday season lasting from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. The cold weather, low sunlight conditions and holiday festivities all call for it, and dedicated construction workers have certainly earned the time off. No matter how long your company is taking off for the holidays, you are most likely in need of tips for securing your construction sites during this well deserved break.
A solar trailer can be the perfect security and video surveillance solution for construction companies, builders and developers who are working in remote, rural and “in the middle of nowhere” locations. The primary advantage of a solar powered security trailer is its ability to operate without an electrical connection, much less an internet connection or other technology.
