We are still seeing shortages of a variety of materials, and construction site theft is playing a big part in a vast industry – and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better.
Starting with tariffs before Covid-19 even hit the country, the cost of various building materials – lumber, metal, and copper, to name a few – started rising, and they haven’t stopped since.
With different significant events happening throughout the US, the price of building materials continues to rise, shortages continue to happen, and thieves on job sites just keep throwing wrenches in the plans of contractors everywhere.
While there has always been a concern for theft at outdoor job sites and large businesses, the shortage of materials has led to an uptick in theft. That theft leads to even more delays in receiving materials, delays in completing construction projects, increases in insurance policies, and discontent among contractors and customers alike. It’s a vicious cycle!
Protecting your job site assets is more important now than ever. We don’t want to see you going through challenges with security when there is so much more to be focusing on.
So, we encourage you to look at our solar-powered security trailers with dozens of user-friendly features; our solar security trailers simplify protecting your job site. Day or night, you can monitor multiple angles of your job site from wherever you are.
The STARCOMM customer portal can be downloaded to your phone or accessed from a computer, and you can customize specific alerts to make you aware of every action taking place on your site. Heat mapping and people-recognition help you visualize the comings and goings and heavy traffic areas at different times of the day.
If you have any concerns about the security of your job site, it is a great idea to have some surveillance overseeing the activities throughout it, especially in the event of theft or other illegal activity on site. While cameras don’t always deter crime, having that video footage available to you could clue you into the perpetrator and help recover your supplies. Our solar-security trailers offer real-time and historical footage, so you never miss a moment of activity on your site. That peace of mind and security is priceless.
Security cameras aren’t only a great addition to construction sites. Large and small businesses with equipment and products out on a lot can benefit from surveillance cameras if a crime is committed. This also goes for weekend events! Suppose you expect a big turnout at your weekend event and have a large parking lot where guests will leave their vehicles (and probably some valuables inside). In that case, a solar security trailer is a perfect addition to that lot to give your guests peace of mind while they are out enjoying your event.
To summarize, here are a few key features and benefits of J Bar’s Solar Security Trailers:
● Easy setup – little maintenance (that J Bar will perform if needed)

My name is Savanna Gregg, and I have been blessed with the task of writing blog posts for J Bar! I’ve grown my love for writing since I was a kid, inspired by my grandpa and great-grandma, and encouraged by my family to follow this passion wherever it leads me. I found a love for journalism in high school and participated in UIL competitions throughout that time. I was able to expand that experience into a career, working for the Burnet Bulletin Newspaper for just over two years before finding a new opportunity here at J Bar. I’ve always loved spreading the news to my community through social media, and am so glad to have been given the opportunity to continue that while providing services for our customers at the same time. I hope you enjoy learning more about our company!
