Security Monitoring for Heavy Machinery
Equipment Rental and Leasing

Heavy machinery equipment rental and leasing companies serve a wide variety of industries. The tools and vehicles available are extremely costly to purchase and maintain, and can be difficult to protect. While some of the latest models of equipment do have electronic key systems, they are still vulnerable to theft, vandalism and misuse.


Heavy construction equipment is used in many different industries, including:

  • Roadwork
  • Demolition
  • Mining
  • Utility construction
  • Material hauling
  • Aggregate hauling
  • Recycling and scrapping
  • Dredging
  • Pile driving
  • Grading and landscaping
  • Farming and harvesting
  • Window cleaning
  • Fire fighting
  • Forestry
  • Excavation
  • Digging trenches, holes and foundations

The Challenge of Securing Heavy Equipment and Machinery

When it comes to protection from risk, there are many challenges facing rental storage sites. While some sites have chosen to implement solutions like guards, video surveillance cameras and fencing, these do not provide sufficient security for a number of reasons:

  • Even when properly placed and maintained, video cameras document activity but do not prevent crime
  • Fencing and other obstacles can be easily bypassed
  • On-site security guards are expensive and can become fatigued with a loss in attentiveness
  • When there is an incident, filling out a report is labor-intensive and there can be gaps in evidence


Reducing Risk, Theft and Vandalism on Construction Sites

Proactive Video Monitoring is the best way to ensure heavy machinery and construction equipment remains safe and secure. Utilizing purpose-built software along with dedicated, intervention specialists, Netwatch PVM leverages smart technology to help construction companies and developers ensure their sites, equipment, building materials are secure and protected 24/7.


Our agents monitor your rental and leasing premises for any unauthorized behavior. When suspicious activity is detected, it is verified by our team of specialists who immediately deliver a live, personalized audio warning while also notifying police. This has demonstrated a 98% success rate of deterring the unwanted behavior and preventing crimes from occurring.

After the incident is resolved, a complete incident report is automatically issued with a detailed account, timestamp and the actions taken by our team of specialists.

Construction equipment and heavy machinery can be both vulnerable and dangerous. Proactive video monitoring is the best way to prevent adverse events from happening, and the best way for businesses to protect themselves and the public.
