iDefigo's 'Trends In Security & Surveillance Guide 2021' has launched.

London, June 14, 2021 – iDefigo, the providers of rapidly deployable IoT-based visual intelligence anywhere solutions, have launched a new marketing campaign focusing on the growth, and therefore need of, remote security and surveillance in the Construction sector.


It is estimated theft and vandalism within the UK construction industry costs the sector over £800 million per year. This is probably a conservative figure when many crimes go unreported. A survey conducted by the Chartered Institute of Building revealed that 92% of respondents were directly affected by petty crime, with 21% stating that their construction sites were robbed on a weekly basis. There’s no doubt that theft is an on-going issue within the industry which will continue to grow. In response iDefigo is highlighting the problem and suggested resolutions through a new 'Trends In Security & Surveillance Guide 2021'. Download here


iDefigo provide an answer to the problem with their Smart Wireless Camera remote, battery powered surveillance solution currently used by the Construction industry as well as dozens of councils to monitor and record fly-tipping hot spots as well as many other applications.


The solution is an established Vodafone product that is provided and supported by iDefigo and is sold by Vodafone UK across Regional and Major business sectors into multiple verticals.


Smart Wireless Camera is an easy-to-deploy solution, providing quick-setup surveillance that lets you track and record events from anywhere you want, helping to deter, discover and resolve issues fast. The wireless design of the cameras means they do not need power or fixed broadband connectivity and unlike traditional CCTV technology, can be used anywhere, providing a unique solution to cover the “not spots” where protection through surveillance is vital.
