Many UK construction and house building companies are renting the MeerCams from our network of UK resellers on short term – 1-4 weeks, medium term - 4 – 16 weeks or long term rental aggreements 16 weeks plus at the fraction of the cost similar construction site security solutions such as CCTV mobile tower trailors, static manned guarding and CCTV monitoring site security solutions and because the MeerCams are 100% battery powered – power lasting up to 2 years, there are no expensive running and operating costs such as diesel fuel costs to run power generators on building and construction sites when operating CCTV monitoring security equipment out of working hours.

CCTV surveillance portable trailor power generator

 With dramatic increases in diesel fuel costs over the last 12 months, operating mobile CCTV monitoring tower trailors and traditional construction site security CCTV monitoring systems via power generators are greatly increasing the running costs to such a high level that construction and building site companies can now rent and deploy the self powered wireless GPRS mobile MeerCams and have them installed, operating and monitored with a choice of over 45 Alarm Receiving Centres to monitor them around the UK and Ireland cheaper than the running diesil fuel costs of a power generator required to operate a CCTV surveillance portable tower trailor or other CCTV security monitoring system to secure and protect the security of a construction site - before you start renting the CCTV equipment, installation, CCTV monitoring and the rental costs of a power generator – showcasing why many UK house building companies and construction sites are moving their construction site security away from expensive to operate portable CCTV surveillance tower trailors to the low cost MeerCam self powered construction site security systems

MeerCams Rapidly Deployed Around UK To Stop Copper and Metals Theft

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

The Camvista MeerCams battery powered GPRS mobile wireless motion detector CCTV remote security cameras are being deployed by companies and organisations around the UK to help stop and combat the dramatic rise in copper theft and other now valuable metal thefts.  Metal and copper theft is now the fastest growing crime in the UK costing businesses and organisations over £650m per year – in 2011 reaching epidemic proportions which is expected to greatly increase the $650m yearly loss of copper theft


Stop Copper Theft - MeerCams

Copper prices have soared to over £4,854 per tonne making copper theft very profitable to serious criminals and organised gangs by stealing copper products at remote locations to sell onto the black market.  Hitting Railway companies, Power Utility companies, Water Operators, Telephone companies, Construction companies and Void Property companies to name a few business sectors that are being targeted by criminals to steal copper and other valuable metals because some of their business locations are unstaffed and remote where the copper products are being used for their business requirements

Because power and telephone/broadband lines are required for traditional security CCTV security monitoring many companies and organisations are unable to protect their remote locations with CCTV monitoring cameras to stop and reduce copper and metals theft at their remote facilities.

However – the Camvista self powered wireless GPRS mobile CCTV security monitoring camera system – the MeerCam - is now allowing Network Rail, Power Utility companies, Water Boards, Telephone companies, Construction companies and Void property Housing Associations and Council’s and Education Authorities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to greatly reduce their risk to metal and copper theft crimes by rapidly deploying the MeerCam battery powered infrared motion detector CCTV portable surveillance cameras at any remote security location to combat the organised criminals and gangs that are making theft of copper and metals the fastest growing crime in and around the UK.

Already some construction companies have seen the full benefits of deploying the MeerCams onto their construction sites to stop and catch theft of copper and metals.  On one construction site over a three month period the MeerCams have stopped three serious break-ins with the police being able to arrest and charge 9 criminals who were trying to steal copper and metal from that construction site on 3 seperate attempts.  Proving that the MeerCam is not only a good deterrent to stop and prevent theft at remote locations that are unmanned out of working hours but will actually help to catch the criminals that are targeting remote locations for copper and metal theft

Low Cost Construction Wireless Self Powered Security Monitoring System

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Construction and House Building companies around the UK are signing up for the Camvista `MeerCam construction wireless self powered security monitoring system` which Camvista has recetly launched in early 2010 – knocking thousands of £££’s from their current construction site security surveillance budgets. Allowing construction and house building companies to reduce their construction security budgets in the current downturn of the economy

Camvista’s innovative and very cost effective MeerCam construction wireless self powered security monitoring system` allows construction and house building companies to quickly deploy self powered wireless night vision security cameras overlooking construction and building site compounds and perimeter fence areas around their construction building sites.  Large construction sites – medium size building sites and even small house building sites.  Allowing the MeerCam self powered wireless surveillance cameras to be monitored `out of working hours` by N.S.I. Gold Approved Alarm Monitoring Stations at the fraction of the cost of traditional static guarding companies or CCTV construction security monitoring companies

Camvista have just recently installed a 20 MeerCam rental construction wireless self powered security camera monitoring system for a leading Scottish construction company in Central Scotland.   Knocking their normal construction site security monitoring budget by over 65%.  Saving them thousands of £££’s over the 30 week construction project.

MeerCam constrction site security monitoring cameras

This Scottish Construction company normally deploys CCTV construction surveillance cameras on many of their construction projects around the UK – monitored by an Alarm Monitoring Security company.  To operate CCTV construction monitoring surveillance cameras on their previous construction sites required power generators to be operating out of working hours night times – weekends – holiday periods.

The weekly rental costs for their current 20 MeerCam construction wireless self powered security monitoring system which also includes installation, maintenance, operational costs as well as having the MeerCam surveillance outdoor cameras monitored by a N.S.I. Gold Approved Alarm Monitoring Stations are lower than – the fuel costs of operating their own power generator on their normal construction sites. Add their normal rental costs of the CCTV construction security monitoring cameras, the installation of the camera equipment, which would of taken over 7 days or more to install, rather than two days with our 20 MeerCam construction security monitoring cameras and equipment, and the costs of having the CCTV construction security cameras monitored – no wonder their saving over 65% of their standard security site budget

MeerCam wireless self powered construction security moniting camera system

Within the first week of the 20 MeerCam construction wireless self powered security monitoring system in operation on their Central Scotland located construction site two intruders were detected visiting their site at 2am by the appointed N.S.I. Gold Approved Alarm Monitoring Station.  The MeerCam alarm siren was activated and alerted the two intruders that they had been spotted breaking into the construction site.  Local police to the area of the construction site were notified by the Alarm Monitoring Station as well as the construction site manager was sent via email to his web-enabled mobile phone the video alarm footage of the two intruders being detected on the construction site and running away after hearing the alarm siren.  Showing the MeerCam construction site security monitoring system in full working mode to protect the construction site out of working hours

This new construction client for Camvista have recently placed a further two new orders for the MeerCam construction wireless self powered security monitoring system to deploy and operate at one construction site in the Midlands area of England and another house building site in Central Scotland

The Camvista 3G construction webcam is not just a standard webcam overlooking a construction project.  The construction webcam is also doubling up as a remote monitoring security project camera.  Utilising Remote Alert, all motion detetected images from the construction monitoring webcam, at specific periods of times, daytime and nightimes, are being made available to remotely monitor via our Remote Alert web-interface.  Allowing the Project manager, and other key members of staff of the construction company to security monitor via snapshot images all movement on the construction project via their construction webcam.
