Outdoor Solar Security Camera:5 Precautions before Purchase.

2019-07-05

Have you ever
thought about installing a camera in the area without network for real-time
monitoring? The outdoor
solar security camera is the best choice for real-time monitoring in areas where
there is no network. Through this
article, Jimi will explain the 4G solar camera step by step and let you fully
understand this product.

What
is solar security camera?

The 4G solar security camera monitoring
system is a major breakthrough in the camera industry. It breaks the
limitations of traditional cameras that require network and utility power for
data transmission.

The 4G solar security camera adopts mobile
phone networks to transmit video data and uses solar energy to supply power,
solving the monitoring problem in no-network and no-power areas.

The camera works like a mobile phone: the
video data is sent to the server through the base station via the built-in 4G
module. Therefore, in order to transmit data, the 4G camera needs to insert the
SIM card just like the mobile phone.

The solar power system works by generating
electricity from solar panels and storing it in the battery to ensure that the
camera can continue to work in the night and rainy days without light.

 

Which
area is suitable for installing a solar camera

As long as there is mobile phone network
signal and sunlight, it is suitable to install a solar camera. Before
installing, you can test the local mobile phone network signal by using the
mobile phone to access the Internet.

Because the outdoor solar camera is able to
work in a network-free area, it is particularly suitable for installation in
places where the Internet and the power grid are difficult to cover. For
example: construction sites, farms, pastures, docks, boats, warehouses,
highways, hydropower stations, oil fields, wildlife protection bases, etc.


Advantages
and disadvantages of solar cameras

Every coin has two sides, as does a solar
camera.

Advantage
1: It is not restricted by location

The solar camera can be installed in any
place with a cellular network signal and sunlight.

Advantage
2: High privacy security

Compared with traditional cameras
transmitted over the Internet, signal transmission over mobile networks is more
secure, making it more difficult for hackers to invade the camera system.

Advantage
3: Simple installation

No need to slot the cable wiring, install
the solar system, insert the mobile phone flow card, turn on the power, install
the client, add remote camera to achieve remote monitoring.

Advantage
4: Remote viewing anytime anywhere

Traditional cameras can’t be remotely
monitored in areas without Internet. Solar cameras can be viewed remotely from
anywhere in the world on your phone.

Disadvantage
1: The price of solar cameras is high

The price of 4G solar cameras is much more
expensive than traditional cameras. In order to ensure long-term stability of
the solar camera, high-quality raw materials must be used. The price of solar
systems with different configurations varies greatly.

In addition to the high price of the
product, the monthly transaction fee for transmitting data is also required.
The traffic fee is determined by the usage of the data. The traffic is consumed
by watching and downloading. 1G/month is enough for ordinary use, but if frequently
watch the video, it may up to 4-5G/month. Now there are operators that have
launched the monthly mobile data package for the Internet of Things. There is
no limit to the speed of the network. You can choose the specific one according
to your usage.

Disadvantage
2: The battery has a life cycle

The life of a solar system is highly
dependent on the quality of the battery. The battery life of different products
varies greatly. Due to the special nature of charging and discharging of solar
products, traditional lead-acid batteries are gradually being eliminated by the
market. Lightweight, large capacity lithium battery has become the new favorite
of the market. Among lithium batteries, solar products mainly use ternary
lithium batteries and lithium iron phosphate batteries. Through experimental
comparison, the ternary material battery cycled 3,900 times, remaining capacity
of 66%, and the lithium iron phosphate battery cycled 5,000 times, remaining
capacity of 84%. Therefore, the solar camera system needs to replace the
battery after the end of the battery life in order to continue to use.


Is
it necessary to buy a solar camera?

After understanding the advantages and
disadvantages of solar cameras, you will definitely have these questions: Is it
necessary to buy a solar camera?

It depends on whether you really need it.
As a simple example, if you need to install monitoring and there is a network
and electricity, you don’t have to install a solar camera. If you install the
location without the Internet or the electricity and you want to install the
camera for remote monitoring, there is no doubt that a solar camera will be
your first choice.


How
to choose a solar camera?

To buy solar-powered surveillance cameras,
you must choose products that are of reliable quality and do not choose
inferior products for cheap. Make detailed communication with the sales staff
before purchasing to confirm whether the installation site covers the 4G
network and which operator’s signal is better in those areas. Secondly,
consider whether the solar system can provide a stable voltage and current to
the camera. Once again, by comprehensively evaluating which manufacturer’s
solar monitoring system can work stably for a long time, you can determine
which supplier to purchase from.
