Abandoned And Secure: Keeping Vacant Sites Safe 

Loaded with hazardous materials and dangerous conditions, the site of a former psychiatric hospital in Northville Township, Michigan is not where trespassers should be.
Security for a Vacant Property Consider the Risks

Yet, local news reports detail dozens of cases where people have tried to access the abandoned site which is currently undergoing an asbestos abatement ahead of demolition. That’s why Pro-Vigil’s mobile surveillance solution was chosen to keep watch over the site and keep trespassers out. 

Trespassers triggered the motion detection sensors over 60 times in less than two months after the system was installed, according to local media. Police hope Pro-Vigil will make trespassers think twice.

“I hope this powerful system is a deterrent. It’s a dangerous demolition site where workers wear respirators while there and we don’t want anyone to get hurt simply because they are curious,”

Northville Township Police Chief Scott Hilden recently told ClickOnDetroit.com.

Michael Suty, President of Asbestos Abatement which is working at the site of the abandoned hospital told HometownLife, “We expect this state-of-the-art surveillance to set the standard for future construction projects.” 

Not only does Pro-Vigil protect property, but in this case, our smart surveillance powered by AI is being used to protect people who shouldn’t be there. Curiosity doesn’t always have to kill the cat.

Our mobile video monitoring solutions can serve as a reminder for trespassers to stay away from asbestos and other harmful materials while venturing onto unstable and unsafe restricted areas. Demolition sites can be filled with hazardous materials that trespassers may not be aware of.

You might be thinking, “Not my problem.” But it can quickly become your problem if someone is injured on your site. Our deterrence features often protect people from themselves, all while keeping your project on schedule.  

Audio & Visual Deterrents: 

  • Pre-recorded audio messages like “This site is unsafe. Leave immediately”

  • Motion-detecting cameras

  • Flashing lights

  • Sirens

How do you secure these abandoned sites without Wi-Fi or electricity? The answer is Pro-Vigil’s mobile video surveillance system.

Our mobile units are solar-powered, don’t need Wi-Fi to operate and are mounted on a trailer with wheels that can easily be moved around as the site develops and security needs change. 

Most people think about keeping construction sites and materials safe when a building is going up – not coming down. The reality is, while new construction sites require security solutions to keep trespassers and thieves out, demolition sites and renovation projects require the same amount of security.

On new construction sites, security is typically about keeping valuable tools, equipment and materials where they belong. Demolition sites and abandoned buildings, on the other hand, face a host of unique challenges including frequent vandalism and numerous hazards that could put trespassers in danger.
