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
