Temporary security in the form of CCTV towers has become increasingly popular throughout Europe as a solution for vacant property protection and other areas where protection is needed in remote and challenging locations outside of working hours.

Deploying fully equipped mobile security towers enables locations and property to be monitored by self-powered CCTV high above surrounding obstacles which provides a 360–degree view of the area for an operator in a remote central station!

In this article, we explore the benefits of using mobile  CCTV towers to protect sites in the property management sector.

Why use a temporary mobile  CCTV tower?

Rapid deployment CCTV towers offer greater flexibility than fixed systems. Mobile security towers are used in a variety of property applications such as vacant property where they protect property that has no guarding or staffing on site and remote or unmanned sites with buildings on, where the cost of offering traditional security guarding is often cost prohibitive.

Temporary CCTV towers are often used on sites that change and evolve over a period of time, such as a construction site, which often have temporary buildings that have valuable computers and other equipment that would delay a project significantly if stolen or damaged. Using a temporary mobile CCTV system that can also be moved during the life cycle of the site enables continuous coverage to be achieved throughout the building project as they are easily installed, rapidly deployed, and easy to reposition during the course of a project lifetime.

The installation of mobile CCTV towers can significantly reduce the costs of securing, protecting and maintaining the value of property or assets, strengthen and improve safety and insurance compliance and lessen many negative impacts of such sites on the local community.

Rapid deployment CCTV towers are ideal for Vacant property as they offer added security measures that reduce theft and reduce the risk of injury to site visitors.

Remote Sites

Any site that has remote buildings can be better protected using a mobile CCTV tower. These towers can be self-sufficient in terms of power for long periods off-grid and can use 4G/5G communication to a video central station to ensure round-the-clock coverage and surveillance.

Typical property applications where temporary monitoring is required include vacant property sisters, social housing sites and large area sites, and construction site properties such as offices and storage areas.

Key benefits of using mobile CCTV towers for property management

  • Provide site security in all weather conditions.
  • Quick and easy to set up.
  • Flexible protection – can be easily moved on site.
  • Greater viewing capability than fixed CCTV systems

Securing property is a fundamental necessity in today’s world, not just for peace of mind but also for the tangible safeguarding of assets. Whether you own a commercial or industrial property, ensuring its security is paramount. With the rising incidents of theft, vandalism, and other forms of property crimes, it’s crucial to have robust security measures in place. Unprotected properties are easy targets for criminals, and the loss incurred from such incidents can be financially devastating and cause business disruption. Moreover, in a business scenario, inadequate security can lead to building or site breaches, compromising your business. Therefore, property security is not a luxury but a necessary investment that protects your assets, provides a safe environment, and ultimately, saves you from potential losses and liabilities.

Why securing property is important for businesses and commercial properties

For businesses and commercial properties, effective security measures are absolutely vital. These properties often house valuable assets, sensitive documents, expensive equipment, and critical data. Any breach of security can lead to significant financial losses, not to mention the potential damage to the company’s reputation and disruption to the business. Moreover, a secure environment contributes to employee safety and productivity, as staff members can focus on their work without worrying about potential threats. A well-secured business also sends a positive message to clients, investors, and partners about the company’s professionalism and its commitment to safeguarding its resources. Hence, securing commercial properties is a crucial investment that protects the business’s bottom line, reputation, and most importantly, its people.

The Benefits of Using Mobile Security Towers for Property Surveillance

Mobile CCTV Towers are essentially high-definition surveillance cameras mounted on movable towers. These towers can be conveniently relocated to cover different areas as per requirements, providing flexible and comprehensive coverage. The cameras are usually equipped with night vision capabilities, and some advanced models even feature motion detection and auto-tracking functionalities.

The Benefits

High-Quality Surveillance

The primary advantage of Mobile Security Towers is their ability to provide high-quality, real-time surveillance. This ensures clear and detailed footage, enabling you to monitor your property effectively and take immediate action in case of any suspicious activities.

Mobility and Flexibility

These towers can be easily relocated depending on the areas of greatest risk, offering the flexibility to cover different areas at different times. This mobility makes them ideal for large properties and events where static cameras may not provide sufficient coverage.

Deterrence Factor

Their overt presence acts as a significant deterrent to potential criminals. The sight of a CCTV tower often discourages trespassers and vandals, thereby preventing incidents before they occur.

Real-Time Monitoring and Alerts

Most mobile CCTV towers allow for real-time video monitoring and instant alerts. This means you can have someone monitoring the site remotely, and should an incident occur, the relevant authorities can be alerted immediately.


While the initial investment might seem substantial, mobile CCTV towers are actually quite cost-effective in the long run. By preventing thefts, vandalism, and other security breaches, they save you from potential losses and liabilities. Typically they cost 70% less than guarding based alternatives.

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.
