Solar CCTV Camera Remote Monitoring

 
 

Solar CCTV Camera Ultra-Low power Remote Monitoring of events

Wireless Solar CCTV Camera gateway

Self powered, with up to 20 ‘TAG’ wireless
detectors monitoring various conditions
and sending alerts and images via 3G
communications for security or
environmental events. Fast 24/7 “always
online” response without power or cables.

KEY BENEFITS

This ultra-low power intelligent Solar CCTV Camera system requires only 1/10th of the energy of ‘traditional’ CCTV, which now permits a small 30W solar panel (only 536x477mm) full autonomous operation within the UK. Complete with an Infra-Red illuminator for night time viewing

Solar calculations are based upon the 22+ years ‘Insolation’ solar radiation NASA database and optimised for the UK weather.

Within the camera housing, the camera is an integrated low powered gateway which monitors a family of wireless ‘TAG’s – and streams either data, images or alarms via a low power always
online 3G communications integrated router.

This creates a complete 24/7 monitored smart Solar 3G CCTV
system, which extends beyond intruder detection.

Each TAG is wirelessly connected to the IP Gateway, at typically 200-500m distance, operating on its own integral battery. Typical life 12 months, longer at design request – and remotely monitored.

TAG’s are intelligent and can be programmed with various
functions, and decision logic, currently and not limited to detecting
Tilt / Vibration / Temperature / Position / Flood and Contacts.

TAG VARIANTS

• Motion Tags Detect vibration – as per cable theft tags

• Tilt Tags Detect Tilt – cut overhead cables

• XYZ Tags As per tilt tags but detect orientation to greater accuracy e.g. for slip/ structure movement

• XYZ streaming tags Real-time streaming of XYZ data for motion analysis

• Beacon Tags Emit a beacon ping that can be tracked by directional scanner

• Contact Tags Detect contact closures/voltage free switch inputs

• GPS Tags Provide GPS location of tag – 1 metre or less for surveying applications using multiple tags in differential mode
GPS Logging Tags Provide historical GPS location of tag over a period of time with data downloaded when in range of a gateway – for historical non real time tracking without the need for a SIM contract.

• Flood Sensor Tags Detect water level

• Temperature Sensor Tags 0.25C accurate sensing of surface temperature

• Custom tags All our tags are designed from the chip level upwards with our own hardware and software IP so we can produce custom versions for almost any application.
