As the fast development of technology, today solar powered security cameras become the popular choice when people wants to setup a wireless video surveillance system. Though solar powered security cameras are much better than conventional security cameras, we may still want to know the pros and cons of this type of product.
Easy installation: solar panel provides the power and camera supports Wi-Fi connection, it’s completely wire-free and it’s truly Do-it-yourself system and may not need to outsource the installation service.
Eco-friendly: solar panel converts sun lights to electricity, the camera works with clean and renewable energy, the internal battery provides the power when camera works at night. Working independently: solely relying on solar panel to receive power and can not be interfered by outage of electricity.
Wireless transmission: the camera can connect to Internet/Ethernet work through either Wi-Fi or 4G LTE.
Battery charging: under the condition that its battery runs out competely, and solar panel can not receive sufficient light to generate the power, the operation of camera will be interfered. This will have impact on stability of its operation.
Wireless range: since solar powered security cameras uses Wi-Fi or 4G LTE technology, no wonder it may encounter weak wireless signal, unstable Wi-Fi connection, and even signal interference problem. These problems can be from trivial to medium depending on your Wi-Fi environment or the place where camera will be installed.
