17th December 2020 – Hikvision, an IoT solution provider with video as its core competency, has launched a new 4G Solar Panel Kit for Standalone Security Sites in the UK & Ireland. This will revolutionize the protection of remote assets in hard to reach places by proving a security camera that runs on solar power.
The kit (DS-2XS6A25G0-I/CH20S40) includes a 4G camera, a solar panel, a battery, and a bracket, and can provide one-stop monitoring in remote environments. This means providers can deliver connected security to scenarios such as agriculture, animal and forest observation, as well as temporary monitoring of construction sites.
The issue of having no power or network is no longer a problem, with the kit providing power to the camera through the solar panel and connectivity through 4G. It sends data to a communication station and then on to the security monitoring centre, where it can be managed using HikCentral Professional or the Hik-Connect app. This means both monitoring and management activities, like viewing footage live, can be done remotely over the 4G network.
Its lightweight design makes the kit easy to install, so just one person can install it with a pole mount. The IP67 rating provides protection against most adverse weather conditions, and it also survives well against strong winds often experienced in remote areas.
The kit demonstrates long endurance, detecting power levels and automatically adjusting to power-saving mode when they are low. This means it can work continuously for up to seven days in cloudy and rainy weather when fully charged.
“Supporting remote operations like farms and temporary construction sites has always been a challenge”, says Gary Harmer, Hikvision UK & Ireland Sales Director. “Now, with this innovative combination of solar and 4G technologies we can provide a camera that can work ‘off grid’, meaning installers can provide a great service to customers wherever they are.”
