Construction is the most prominent industry in any society, that contributes greatly to the economic growth of a country and region. Construction instruments are an integral part of the construction sector, and the construction tools have to be managed efficiently to avoid thefts and to remain projects beneficial. Wireless technology merged with GPS devices opens up new opportunities for construction sites monitoring making a significant impact.


Thefts remain a major challenge in any construction site in any country around the world this is the harsh reality. Materials (especially copper and timber), easy to transport small tools and equipment, highly valuable power tools and heavy machinery remain an appealing target for thieves looking to make considerable profits on these high-reward crimes.

Furthermore, materials and tools shortage, as a result, prices rise caused by global COVID-19 pandemic, has spiked even higher demand making them particularly tempting targets. The outcome - the situation is getting worst threatening construction businesses in already troublesome times.

The traditional anti-theft methods - CCTV cameras, removing tool batteries, locking away smaller tools in special enforced containers, strict internal company policies and heavy penalties require a considerable investment, or effort, or both but do not bring results business owners would expect and count for. Another challenge - site managers, supervisors, foremen may waste (or spend) a significant amount of precious time managing and finding in real-time what they are looking for and accountable for - labourers, goods, materials, and assets such as various tools, machinery, and equipment.

It is reasonable practice to keep employees accountable and well-organised by tracking, monitoring and analysing their actions, assets given to them, working hours, etc for making any business work as efficiently as possible and keep it competitive. The old-school ‘pen and paper’ approach is proven to be ineffective, time-consuming, inconvenient, and error-prone.


Vehicle GPS trackers and relevant accessories are already being broadly used in the construction industry and large sites, for numerous assets tracking indoors and processes of interest optimisation too we can conveniently utilise them. For the sake of example, we choose the waterproof TrackingHAWK model with Bluetooth connectivity feature.

Bluetooth connectivity is being used here because GPS signals often are inaccurate enough to be practical indoors or in small streets and gaps as they reduce and disperse.

For the long-term tracking, device might be fixed with screws, alternatively - with just a regular duct tape from any stationery shop. Fast and easy to attach when they are needed, quick to remove, when they are not.

Trackers are permanently set up on a ceiling or upper part of a wall in construction site: on every floor work area, hallways, stairways, parking facilities, temporary materials storage locations and warehouses, service premises, welfare facilities, etc. and used as signal gateways, devices are attached to assets and people of interest. Alternatively, clients can also use their own mobile application to monitor in the construction area.
