Solar Security Systems

Solar-powered systems are disrupting industries that make products that depend in some ways on electricity. The industry has seen the introduction of solar water heaters, solar water pumps, solar freezers, solar air conditioners, solar car battery chargers, solar laptop chargers, etc. all pushing hard at displacing the mainstream.

Solar-Powered Cameras

Traditional security systems can be used directly as appliances on a solar power system. Otherwise, there are security systems whose parts incorporate a solar system. These solar-powered systems come available for residential and offices uses in forms of security cameras or CCTV cameras. (When installed for security purposes, solar streetlights, are also regarded as a type of solar security systems.) These portable solar systems do not require any major infrastructure changes for their installation.

  3. A solar security system can be scaled with the integration of additional cameras.

  4. The videos are logged on to a memory card or can be uploaded to cloud. Playback videos can be viewed from a smartphone app or from a desktop computer.

  5. While they come with mini-sized solar panels or parts in which solar cells are incorporated which guarantees their functioning during the day, at night when their function are most needful, they are powered by incorporated rechargeable batteries.
