The below may vary slightly depending on the camera.

  • The Camera draws around 8 watts
  • The 4G Router draws around 4 watts

The combined draw can change slightly when the camera is in standby mode or sending an image. When we tested the 4K system it was using 10 watts in standby and 12 watts when sending an image.

OUR UK PARTNERS HAVE DEPLOYED THE FOLLOWING SOLAR SYSTEM WITH GREAT SUCCESS

  • 1 x 200 Watt Panel or 2 x 120 Watt
  • 1 x 110ah Battery – Leisure / Deep Cycle
  • 1 x Battery Protector – Victron Energy – See here
  • 1 x Solar charge controller – Victron Energy – See here
  • 1 x Pole, Ground or Roof Mount
  • 1 x Required red and black solar cable, usually 2.5mm

If your own solar camera project is overseas you may be able to deploy a smaller panel. Consult with your local solar supplier and provide them with the above power draw.

SMART POWER TO THE CAMERA = FLEXIBILITY & SIMPLICITY !

Although this is a Solar system running off-grid, you can still power the camera with a supplied outdoor cat5e data cable. We include ( and can mount in our 4G battery box ) a DC input POE switch. This will allows you to position the camera 100’s of feet from the Solar Set-up. Data & Power is sent over one outdoor data cable to the camera.

You will need a cabinet to house your Battery & our hardware in. You can procure your own or we can build you a 4G Battery Box. This would be an IP66, Steel Box measuring 300mm x 600 mm x 400 mm. This ia available for UK customers only. Your Networking & Cellular hardware would be DIN Rail mounted and your 12V Battery would fit at the bottom. The metal cabinet would be pre-drilled and cable glands would be fitted. You would take delivery of the Solar Hardware direct and you would need to set this up and follow a wiring diagram.

4G BATTERY BOX

You can take the given kit list and find a local supplier. We ship the camera and 4G Battery BOX. Victron Energy is one of many Solar Charge Controller manufacturers.

 Please note: Burgess Technologies does not employ registered electricians or install solar. The above are hints and tips we have picked up from partners instaling our system with solar. We have had solar projects running for over 2 years now which have passed through winters with no issues.
