    What Is a Solar Panel Camera?

    If you want to stay safe, you should learn about a solar panel camera, also known as a wireless outdoor camera.

    This is simply a single camera or a security camera base station that you install in or out of your home that doesn't rely on battery power but also the strength of a solar panel.

    With this special type of camera, you can keep tabs on your home and remain connected at all times via the internet as well as a wifi connection, all with a clear picture, a strong angle, two way audio, and more. You don't have to worry about hurting the environment because solar devices work by feeding off of the sun, even on cloudy days or those without a lot of sun.

    How Does the Solar Panel Work With a Camera?

    With a solar panel, a security camera is able to work 24 hours a day, getting its battery filled by the charge that flows through the wiring of the panel that is typically installed on your roof (or in your yard).

    Nearly all smart cameras run by solar panels come with FHD color night vision as well as PIR motion detection. Some people worry that the cameras would only operate during the day when the sun is out, they actually are able to go throughout the night without a problem.

    The science behind solar power has gotten better over the years. Now solar powered security cameras and solar panels with micro USB are also better, more efficient, and easier to set up than ever before.

    While you can pay companies to install your security cameras and the solar panel that runs them, things have gotten simple. Within a short amount of time, your wireless outdoor security camera will be working flawlessly, all charged by the solar panel that sits out of sight and out of mind, working 24 hours a day with two way audio no matter the weather above.

    All of the FHD color night vision footage from a camera and solar panel now goes directly to cloud storage, which means that you can access your local storage at any point and watch the footage, no matter the recording length.

    With good battery life, cloud storage, and night vision, there is no better time to get a wireless outdoor security camera and solar panel.

    How to Install a Solar Panel for Your Security Camera

    The first thing you'll need to do when you are installing a solar panel and base station for your security camera and its cable is find the right location. Some love the idea of a solar panel being placed on the roof. Others, however, want their devices to be installed in the yard, away in a garden where they can still soak up sun. The garden approach to a solar panel is smart because you can check on them easier than if they were on your roof, requiring a ladder.

    If you install solar panels on your roof, you will need to be sure that you have used roof sealant so that no holes appear in your roof. You will also need to use the necessary type of drill, so that the products stay put and do not fall or shift or stop working in strong winds or other unsavory weather. No matter where you are installing your cable and panel, be sure that you have removed all metallic jewelry that you were beforehand, including any watches. You should also keep a multimeter on hand to check conductors and determination and make sure there are zero volts present during installation.

    When laying the wires and cable, ensure that you route them away from sharp edges and any pinpoints so you protect them from damage. As with any electrical installation, you should plan your wiring placement before you get to work. You want to also be sure that you do not drill into the wires because that will make them inefficient and it is sometimes nearly impossible to see which ones have been punctured.

    Many local companies will gladly hook up your devices to your solar powered security cameras for a relatively cheap price. It is not uncommon for you to be able to spend just a couple of hundred dollars to get the job done by professionals. Going this route will ensure that everything is done correctly and without your help.

The solar cells rarely ever mess up and you won't have to be climbing up onto your roof frequently to make sure they are operating well. And the same is true for the security camera that you choose. Buying a security camera today requires little work and only rare maintenance.

    Cheaper Than Ever: There was a time when a compatible solar panel and security camera would cost thousands upon thousands of dollars but times have changed and now both products are far less expensive. This means that it won't put a huge dent in your pocketbook, while still being incredibly effective, good for the environment, and easy to use.

    Could Save You Money: Many local governments and state governments give discounts to citizens who operate products such as these.
