In certain sites like construction sites, large farms, parks, ports, roads and highway toll collection centres; its either not possible to carry cables to power IP surveillance cameras or its simply not cost-effective. However, the absence of power lines shouldn’t stop you from keeping an eye on your remote sites.
Let’s take a look at what makes solar powered video surveillance systems work for remote sites?
Saves you time and money
A solar-powered camera does not require any cabling, which can be a huge cost saving. Excavation and trenching costs plus the added expense of cabling can be completely avoided. The price can be even higher considering the need for special permits, inspections, maintenance, etc.
Independence from the power grid
Solar powered video surveillance cameras don’t require you to have outdoor power lines. These systems can be used in remote areas where power source is a problem. With a solar powered video security system, you receive an environmentally safe system with a self-renewing power source for 24-hour surveillance.
Functionality in any location
Solar-powered systems can function in almost any location, as long as installers don’t position them under dense shade or under the eaves of a building. These systems are especially useful in dispersed or geographically challenging environments.
No cables needed
Stand-alone solar powered video surveillance means that the entire system can be installed without running power or data cables.
Minimize environmental impact
Creating infrastructure to support a traditional video system can be disruptive, especially areas such as wetlands, high-traffic locales or other sensitive locations. Solar-powered video systems require no infrastructure and allow sensitive areas and revenue-generating activities to be secured as well as preserved.
Day and Night functionality
Since sunlight is not available throughout the night, a battery back-up system is used to store excess electrical power generated by the solar panels during the day, which can be used to power the IP Surveillance camera during the night.
