Power Related Challenges for Smart Cameras

  • Many cameras are unable to go into sleep mode or cannot because of business requirements
  • Higher data rates can further increase power consumption
  • Data collection and transmission must run continuously in an extremely wide range of solar and environmental operating conditions

Advantages to Adding Solar

  • Avoid bureaucracy and cost of connecting to the grid
  • Reduce cost of battery replacement
  • Enable placement of cameras in optimal locations
  • Create a system that runs for 5+ years without maintenance
