Limitations of existing solutions
Some video camera systems can send motion-based notifications and image snapshots,
but these are impractical in an outdoor environment due to animals, birds, flying debris such
as plastic bags and wind-flapped tarps. But also due to rain and fog
Less sophisticated video surveillance systems are even more problematic, in that there is
no real-time notification of intrusions and the video serves only as a record of evidence.
Security guards are expensive and easily become bored with the drudgery of continually
monitoring video surveillance feeds.
Central alarms require monthly fees, installation and monitoring and can’t easily adapt to the ever-changing landscape of an active construction site.
