Our Solutions

  • Access Control
  • Video Surveillance
  • Intrusion
  • Unified Platform
Access Control
Access control’s real-time identity management, readers, and credentials allow construction management to track who enters and exits sites and grounds. Our robust access control solutions enforce tight security restrictions paired with fencing and signage around property. ​
Video Surveillance
Johnson Controls’ video surveillance provides construction sites with immediate visual certification of all critical locations from one command center. We help surveillance operators maintain secure perimeters, effectively identify suspicious behavior, and ensure site security.
Identifying potential physical threats at the earliest moment contributes to safeguarding construction sites’ integral assets, quickly alerting the right authorities, and preventing any untoward incident from occurring. Our intrusion detection offers real-time alerts, enabling a faster response to mitigate risk.
Unified Platform
Johnson Controls’ unified platform provides access control, video surveillance, and intrusion features to be controlled from one centralized platform, providing true situational awareness of all events occurring in the construction area. ​

Construction Site Challenges​

Perimeter Protection

Johnson Controls’ external-facing security system, perimeter radar detection, is used to monitor entry points, parking lots, and the property line. Perimeter radar detection secures and covers the entire facility. This layered approach can further enhance construction site security when paired with Johnson Controls’ video surveillance technology.


Construction sites often include expansive layouts, accessible equipment, tools, and materials that make it difficult to have visibility across all events and machinery. Johnson Controls leverages security technology which drives pre-designed actions and reactions to security events. Body worn cameras and AI/analytics integrate with these solutions giving your construction site the best possible visibility into potentially disruptive behavior, theft, and trespassers. ​

Visitor Management​

Johnson Control’s robust platform easily tracks who is entering and exiting the premise, unloading and loading shipments, managing equipment, and replacing inventory. With Johnson Controls’ visitor management system paired with perimeter fencing and signage, you have control of who comes in and out of the construction site. ​

Network Connection​

With cloud security solutions, construction sites can plug security solutions into a standard power outlet and connect two cameras directly to the cloud using 3G, 4G and 5G networks. Johnson Controls cloud technologies simplify construction site security, providing management with full security solutions despite limited WiFi or internet connection. ​
