When it comes to construction projects, budgets and project costs are of the utmost importance.
With increasing material and labor costs, contractors are looking for new ways to help them save money on projects. One solution cost-saving solution for many construction companies has been to implement construction cameras on their projects.
You may be thinking,"How can spending money on a construction camera actually help save money on a project?" Let's look at a few ways that construction cameras can impact your bottom line:
An immediate cost saving delivered by construction cameras is the ability to log in to your camera to see what’s going on at a job site in real-time via live-streaming HD video.
Using live-streaming video brings us to our first major cost saving — a reduction in travel costs to and from the job site.
Whether you’re flying to job sites across the country or driving to them across town, the cost of travel is increasing and adding to the bottom line of projects big and small. Instead of physically traveling to and from sites, construction cameras make it possible to see what’s happening at your project site from anywhere.
With real-time HD video at your fingertips, many trips to the job site can be eliminated.
An additional cost-saving benefit of construction cameras impacts your marketing budget.
With a construction camera installed on a job site, you and your team have access to thousands of high-quality photos and 4K time-lapse movies that perfectly showcase your projects and the value you deliver to clients.
Use these photos and videos to:
From day one, construction cameras give you a massive supply of assets to make marketing your projects and company easy.
The final cost saving delivered by construction cameras that we’ll cover here is that of providing for a safer work environment by decreasing job site incidents and, potentially, the opportunity for an insurance discount.
By installing a construction camera on a job site, you’ll be able to document that:
A construction camera on your project enforces your company's commitment to safety and honesty on the job site. It helps with transparency in day-to-day activities, as well reducing incidents and accidents.
Additionally, utilizing a construction camera on a job site can have a deterrent effect. The mere presence of a camera on site may help keep employees, subcontractors, delivery personnel, and everyone else honest and focused on safety and compliance.
