Solar Powered Wireless Security Camera

Solar Powered Security Camera An off-grid solar power system allows you to install and operate a Wireless Security Camera in locations where a traditional 120VAC wired power source may be impractical, expensive or not available. Solar power systems can be the perfect solution for saving money powering security cameras in remote locations.

Solar powered wireless security cameras are cameras that transmit a video and audio signal to a wireless receiver through a radio band. Many wireless security cameras require at least one cable or wire for power; "wireless" refers to the transmission of video/audio. However, some wireless security cameras are solar-powered, making the cameras truly wireless from top to bottom.

Solar Powered wireless cameras are proving very popular among security professionals due to their low installation costs and flexible mounting options; solar powered wireless cameras can be mounted/installed in remote locations previously unavailable to standard wired cameras.
