3 Reasons to Choose a Solar-Powered Security Camera
Enlist the sun’s help in protecting your home or business.
With the sun providing an endless supply of free energy, solar-powered cameras deliver round-the-clock surveillance of your home or business. You can connect an arlo solar panel to most of our cameras, and many people have found it convenient to do so. Here are three reasons to add a solar camera to your security system today:
All solar panels need is direct sunlight to power your security camera season after season. There’s no need to connect the camera to your electrical system since the battery is automatically recharged by the sun. This not only removes the hassle of extra handywork, but it means you can use the camera in remote locations where power isn’t available, like undeveloped land, a dock, jobsite, or motorhome.
If you’re installing the camera in a remote location, remember that Wi-Fi may not be available. You’ll want to pair your solar panel with a camera like the Arlo Go 2 LTE/ Wi-Fi Security Camera that can connect to a cellular network.
Without needing to be physically on-site to replace or recharge a battery, solar panels give you greater flexibility in protecting your valuables from afar. You can leave town without worrying about the battery knowing that the solar panel has you covered.
Utilizing the power of the sun, solar panels offer a long-term solution for keeping your security cameras going. This is all without the need for using electricity from a power outlet. You can invest in the health of the planet and your peace of mind with a cost-cutting solar panel power source.
The key to keeping your solar-powered security camera running is ensuring the panel is exposed to sunlight.
Consider the following tips to help give your solar panel the most sun exposure:
Arlo offers a variety of solar panels for our outdoor cameras. Certain panels only work with specific cameras, so the most important thing is to check compatibility before making a purchase. Make sure there’s suitable clearance to install the camera and panel, especially if you’re doing so under an eave.
Solar-powered security cameras are a smart, simple, and green solution to protect your home or business with a little help from the sun’s free energy.
