As the number of vacant properties continues to grow, so too does the need for increased security. CCTV towers, also known as security towers, are an effective way to protect such property.

Protecting Vacant Property With CCTV Towers

Vacant properties can be a major security risk. This because they are often left unguarded and are vulnerable to vandalism and theft. CCTV towers can provide an effective solution to this problem, as they can monitor a vacant property 24 hours a day without the need for a human presence.

Stationary CCTV towers can be used to monitor large vacant properties, such as construction sites or vacant lots. The towers provide a live feed of the area, allowing it to be monitored remotely. This helps to deter criminals from attempting to vandalize or steal from the property.

Mobile CCTV towers can also be used to monitor vacant properties. Such towers – like TelescopicMast’s Premium Mobile Security Box – are particularly useful for properties that are frequently renovated, such as public facilities or abandoned buildings. The towers can be quickly and easily deployed near the property and can provide a live feed of the area.

Standalone mobile security towers, such as our Roadbox model, can also be used to monitor vacant properties. Such towers are typically mounted on a trailer or vehicle and can be deployed quickly and easily in hard-to-reach places. The towers provide a live feed of the area and can be used to monitor the property for suspicious activity.

Advantages of a Mobile CCTV System

  • A mobile CCTV system can provide a number of advantages over a stationary system. For starters, a mobile system can be deployed quickly and easily in remote places. This makes it ideal for monitoring vacant properties or those that are prone to frequent change.
  • Furthermore, a mobile CCTV system is more cost-effective than a stationary system. Because the system can move the system from one location to another, it does not require permanent installation. Because the system does not need to be assembled and disassembled each time it is moved, this saves both time and money.
  • Finally, a mobile CCTV system provides a greater level of security than a stationary system. Because the system can be deployed to a remote location, it is able to monitor areas that may be inaccessible or difficult to monitor with a stationary system. This may be especially useful for monitoring hard-to-reach areas or those that require a greater level of security.

Considerations for Choosing a CCTV Tower

When choosing a CCTV tower, there are a few key considerations that must be taken into account. The first is the size and type of tower. CCTV towers come in a variety of different sizes and types, ranging from stationary towers to mobile towers. It is important to choose a tower that is suitable for the specific area it will be monitoring.

TelescopicMast’s towers reach a height of six meters, which makes them ideal for covering large areas. Together with their specially designed trailers, they can be transported quickly and easily to any location.

The second consideration is the type of camera(s) that will be used. CCTV towers typically come with one or more cameras. It is important to choose cameras that are suitable for the specific area that the tower will be monitoring. For example, if the tower will be monitoring a large area, it may be necessary to use multiple cameras.

Finally, it is important to consider the features of the tower. CCTV towers can be equipped with a variety of accessories, such as motion detectors, lighting, speakers, and alarms. Always opt for a tower that is equipped with the accessories required for the area that it will be monitoring.

The top part of TelescopicMast’s Mobile Security Box can be equipped with a complete solution of your choice and a large variety of brands.

Construction sites can be a target of theft, vandalism, and other security threats. It is therefore essential to secure these sites in order to protect workers, equipment, and materials. That is where a mobile security solution comes in handy. A mobile system that can be equipped with cameras and mains of your choice, can significantly contribute to the protection of construction sites, the building progress, and the safety of workers.

Freedom to Choose Your Own Equipment and Mains

An important aspect to consider when choosing a mobile security solution, is the freedom you have in selecting a CCTV camera system of your choice. A cabinet like the MSB6-Premium is able to carry up to 60 kilos of equipment in the mast top. Those cameras allow for a 24/7 surveillance system, enabling construction site managers to monitor activity on site in real-time. High quality cameras can easily detect and prevent any unauthorized access or suspicious activity, which can help prevent theft or damage to equipment and materials. The cameras are also able to record incidents, providing valuable evidence for future investigations.

Also important when deploying a mobile surveillance system is how to power it. For example, electric cabling is one option, but is it also able to run on solar power or other mains, like methanol? These two options make it an eco-friendly and cost-effective solution for construction site security. In our Solution overview ‘How to build your own mast’, we take a closer look at the energy supply in one of our products

Workers’ Safety and Project Progress at the site

A mobile security solution also is also valuable when it comes to monitoring the building progress. For example, it allows supervisors to monitor the construction site and ensure that workers comply with safety protocols. The managers can also monitor progress and identify any issues that may slow down the construction process. This can help them make important decisions on time and keep the project on schedule.

Also, a solution like this helps in guaranteeing the safety of workers. For instance, when it comes with a 24/7 surveillance system that can detect any hazardous situations, enabling managers to take action immediately. This can help prevent accidents and injuries on the construction site, guaranteeing a safe working environment.

Help Insurance Companies Providing Evidence

Mobile surveillance solutions can help insurance companies mitigate risks by providing evidence in the event of accidents, theft, or other incidents on the site. This can help reduce insurance premiums and improve the insurer’s ability to assess risks accurately.

To Conclude

TelescopicMast’s products contribute significantly to the protection of construction sites, the building progress, and the safety of workers. Its robust and vandal-resistant construction, versatile mobility, and eco-friendly power source make it an ideal solution for construction site security. With a 24/7 surveillance system, construction site managers can monitor activity on site in real-time, detect any unauthorized access or suspicious activity, and prevent theft or damage to equipment and materials. It also helps managers to monitor progress, ensure workers’ safety, and keep projects on schedule. And if needed, it helps in dealing with insurance issues by allowing you to hand over evidence of vandalism or theft

Following up our very first webinar in September ’22, we organised the second edition on March 15, 2023. This time in close collaboration with Securitas Group.

Nicolaj Kristensen, Head of Solution Design, who explained their entire journey how they built their own Mobile Security Tower | MobileCam. Nicolaj discussed topics like Securitas’ design philosophy and proof of concept of the design. He also gave us a look into the future of the Securitas Mobile Security Tower and how it could support your business in staying secure and compliant.

Henk de Haan, CEO of TelescopicMast, gave us an update of the latest product (and there are some interesting developments) that you can expect to be available in the coming months.



Mobile CCTV security towers provide a number of advantages to construction firms and security companies. They offer a fast and easy solution to setting up a security system on any building project location. Also, mobile CCTV towers can be transported from one site to another with a trailer, allowing for fast and easy transportation. This means that the same security tower can be used for multiple projects, eliminating the need for purchasing a new system for each construction site. Additionally, the mobile security tower (for example our Premium model) can be deployed in areas where power and internet access is not available. This makes it an ideal solution for construction sites in remote and rural locations.

Installing a mobile surveillance tower at a construction site can provide a number of benefits.

  1. Theft. It reduces the risk of theft, vandalism and other crimes, since the presence of cameras can act as a deterrent and also be used to identify any potential perpetrators
  2. Unsafe practices. A remote CCTV monitoring system protects workers by helping to identify any unsafe practices and activities and alerting the relevant authorities in case of an emergency
  3. Safety. Video surveillance can help to reduce liability, as most construction sites need to adhere to certain safety regulations and having evidence of the site’s safety practices can help to prove the project’s compliance with these regulations. TelescopicMast’s security towers meet the highest standards in quality and safety!
  4. Building progress. CCTV can be used to monitor the progress of the construction, enabling managers to quickly identify and address any problems, as well as to keep track of the project’s timeline

Following feedback from our valued customers we have implemented several new improvements that make our 2023 Premium model the best ever from TelescopicMast. The new improved Mobile Security Box Premium model is now available!


All improvements on the Premium Mast have been designed with the user in mind and improve usability, endurance and deliver even more stability.

  • In addition to the well-known three-point cylinder lock, the masts are equipped with a new locking bracket which means you can now secure both doors with a second lock of your choosing for extra security.
  • The winch is now mounted on the mast. This creates additional space in the Mobile Security Box for your equipment and makes it easier to work inside the mast when onsite.
  • New pins for locking the stabilizer bars have been designed. These make it easier to operate the mast and give the added benefit of greater strength.
  • The stabilizers themselves have been redesigned into a closed construction which gives improved reliability. This means that no dirt can get into the adjusting screws, thus making the adjustable feet easier to deploy for many years to come.
  • The locking mechanisms in the mast have been re-designed to omit the need for cable tensioners on the mast cables. This simplifies the tensioning of the mast cables when extending the mast, making it easier to deploy safely and improves reliability.

In addition to the new features above, we have also made several small adjustments that have significantly improved the ease of use and the lifespan of the mast.

Just ahead of the International Fire and Security Exhibiton 2019 (IFSEC) Adam Bannister (editor, IFSEC Global) had an interview with Caspar Assmann, Sales Director at TelescopicMast.

Please tell us a bit about TelescopicMast for anyone unfamiliar with the brand?

Caspar Assmann: TelescopicMast is a manufacturer and supplier of mobile steel security boxes. The company was established about 35 years ago and specialised in steel products. But we developed mobile steel security boxes seven years ago. We have since invested considerable resources to develop the product to where it is now.
We’ve mostly operated in the Netherlands and then Belgium so far, where we have thousands of these boxes in use, but it’s still quite an unknown product outside these countries.
Now we’ve started to distribute in the UK, the Scandinavian countries and Germany through about 10 distributors. We launched in the UK at IFSEC in 2017.

Tell us more about your mobile steel security boxes

Within the steel box is a telescopic mast that erects to six metres high. The box is very secure and can also be locked at the top. It’s galvanised steel and near impossible to climb. It’s CE-certificated, so it can be used in projects where a CE certificate is required.

What kind of vertical markets tend to be interested in the boxes?

The construction market, building sites and crowd control are the biggest. At this moment there’s a lot going on with traffic control, building highways, rail transport and other dangerous areas which are still guarded by people. We can help these sectors protect their people and assets with cameras, which cuts costs by up to 70%. It is also more reliable.

How does your business model work in terms of distribution?

It depends on the market we are operating in. In the UK the distribution model is different: we go through resellers. But an important thing is that we operate in the rental market. Our boxes are equipped with power, electrics, lamps and cameras, and then they are mostly rented out for a couple of months.

How hard is it to install?

It’s very easy to put it on the trailer, to transport and set up. It takes five minutes to get everything going.

Are you still developing the product to improve it further?

We are always developing the box as a product. There are some variations on it, depending on the project for which it is used. The markets we target are quite big, so we have to reach out to a lot of companies and let them know who we are and what we do.

What are your plans for reaching those companies at IFSEC?

There are two parts to our plan for IFSEC. We are working with our UK distributors on our booth to inform potential customers about the potential of this box.

We’re also working on international markets like at last year’s IFSEC, when we met visitors from many countries. We want to meet all kinds of people because we’re still relatively unknown. The international market is very important, but we also want to meet our UK distributors and customers.

Will you have a mobile steel security box fully set up on your stand?

Yes. We’re getting the equipment set up by a distributor that is doing our booth. And we’re using different equipment to DVS – we’re including the power supply and everything, so people can see how the box can be equipped. Because that’s still a potential problem for many users: how to add the equipment, how to run the electricity and power supply.

If someone was to ask why they should come to your stand at IFSEC, what would you tell them?

If they come to our stand we can explain how it works, how they can equip it, how they can have a profitable model with the box. We can explain how it’s better than cars being equipped with a telescopic mast, which is often done instead but is quite expensive. Our box is comparatively cheap and a very secure way to conduct video surveillance.
