Solar Cameras and Lighting for Grid Free Security

Posted by SEPCO on 2/7/12 9:30 AM

Stand-alone solar is a perfect solution for providing power to wireless security surveillance systems.  Current technology has allowed surveillance systems to be installed in remote or hard to reach locations.  Previously, the security cameras would need to be hardwired into a monitoring station in order to provide real time surveillance of the areas.  Now, the cameras can be outfitted with wireless technology in order to transmit the surveillance signals to the monitoring station.  This can be accomplished through direct radio transmission to the monitoring station or through a wireless mesh system.  Often times, the electrical grid is either unavailable or cost-prohibitive in such locations.  This provides the ideal opportunity to utilize stand-alone solar power.
