Many articles have addressed security concerns around the home or the office. However, it is important to point out that these same advancements are just as applicable when referring to container domes and job sites. What recent innovations are available and what advantages can they provide?
The Role of Cyber Security
In the past, many job sites would be monitored solely by in-house techniques such as a guard placed within a room displaying television cameras. Wireless technology now enables owners to safeguard their sites remotely; even from great distances. Mobile-friendly applications and similar digital architecture will provide real-time access to live feeds. In the event of an intrusion or an alert, authorities can be contacted immediately.
Biometrics for Modern Times
There are many times when a site shelter will be used to store sensitive and expensive equipment. Whether referring to machinery or the property of a third party, there is no doubt that protecting this property is absolutely essential.
Many security solutions now involve the use of biometric scanners such as fingerprint readers. These prevent unauthorised users from accessing specific areas. In some instances, they can be used in conjunction with more traditional options such as mechanical locks. Another benefit of biometric scanners is that they will record the times when an individual accesses a certain area. This can be helpful in terms of accountability.
Motion and Infrared Sensors
While these are somewhat traditional methods, their technology has advanced in recent times. Many are now completely portable and much less obtrusive than in the past, enabling them to be placed within locations that would have otherwise been inaccessible. The end result is that the user will be able to monitor any container domes within a specific area. The presence of this type of equipment also acts as an excellent deterrent for any thieves who may be aware of its presence.
Security is always a very real concern on any job site. Thankfully, there have been a kaleidoscope of advancements made over the past decade. These all provide site shelter owners with a peace of mind that might not otherwise be possible. It’s likely that such innovations will continue to evolve well into the predictable future.
