Powered by Solar: The Benefits of Video Surveillance’s Secret Weapon

It wasn’t long ago that modern Internet Protocol (IP)-enabled cameras changed the security game. Today, solar is the "new kid on the block," opening up a whole new range of possibilities.
Temporary Surveillance vs Fixed

Traditional IP cameras run on electricity and require WiFi connectivity, meaning they can only be used in places that are properly wired. 

On the other hand, solar powered IP cameras are making advanced video surveillance a reality for even the most remote, rural or geographically challenging sites that traditionally have been hard to protect.

How do they do this? Solar powered cameras come equipped with solar panels, so they run using natural resources rather than requiring electricity. This means they don’t have to be hardwired to connect.

Each solar security camera unit has a rechargeable battery to provide power. And, even on cloudy days, these advanced cameras still draw power from the visible light through the clouds. 

In addition to providing real-time monitoring for remote locations that lack infrastructure, here are a few of the main benefits of solar powered security cameras:

  • They are durable, long-lasting cameras that are suitable for even the most geographically challenging environments.

  • Installation is easy, fast and affordable.

  • They are extremely mobile, so you can adjust your security strategy as the threat landscape changes.

  • low-or-no-light-color-fix

    They remain functioning through a power outage.

  • They are eco-friendly, running on natural resources rather than electricity.

Use Cases for Solar Powered Security Cameras

While any business can take advantage of solar powered security cameras, here are a few industries where they are especially useful:

heavy construction

CONSTRUCTION

Whether residential or commercial construction, most projects start from ground zero – which means you don’t have the luxury of having electricity, internet or any other IT infrastructure at your disposal. Not only can solar powered security cameras monitor these sites, but they can be easily moved as the project goes vertical and the site’s security requirements change.

RANCH & AGRICULTURE

With their rural locations, expanded perimeter lines, extra access points and valuable outdoor assets, farms and ranches are commonly targeted, yet hard to protect without solar cameras.

CANNABUSINESS

Dispensaries may have the infrastructure you need to install traditional IP cameras, but grow facilities are an entirely different story – often located in unequipped fields.

ENERGY & UTILITIES

Think cell towers, oil & gas, substations and power plants – all of which also are typically located remotely and left unprotected.

In every case, solar panels take advantage of natural resources to power video surveillance and keep sites secure.
