Solar-powered cameras have proven to be a boon for the construction industry. They provide an array of benefits to construction companies around the world, which is why they are a trend in the industry right now.
Solar-powered cameras have overcome all the hurdles faced previously by the electricity-powered cameras such as the inability to be installed in the shortage or absence of power at the worksite. These solar cameras come in many variants such as Wireless Solar Construction Cameras, video surveillance cameras, and more.
Let’s look at some of the reasons that make it such a sought-after technology in the construction industry.
1. Runs without electricity
Solar cameras are integrated with solar panels. These solar panels are charged when exposed to natural sunlight and provide the necessary power to run cameras without any need for electricity.
2. Equipped with Smart Features
These solar cameras come loaded with some of the best smart features in this digital age like:
a. Ability to capture high-resolution color images
b. Live video streaming over WiFi and cellular
c. Built-in digital video recording
d. High resolution automated time-lapse
3. Easy to Install and Relocate
As solar construction cameras are capable of running without any electricity, they need not be plugged with electrical wires. Further, these cameras are small in size, compact and lightweight. Thus, these cameras can be simply mounted on the poles, and also can be easily dismounted when required to be relocated to a different worksite.
4. Remote Monitoring of Job Site Productivity
Your construction site could be situated in a remote location, but still, you can monitor ongoing activities from the comfort of your office; most of these solar cameras provide connectivity to access footage from a remote mobile or computer. This is not only more convenient but saves time and cost of traveling to the site too.
5. Detect Any Malicious Activities
Like any other security camera, these cameras are also perfectly suitable to keep a watch, prevent theft and detect any malicious activities.
6. Make Time Lapse and Promotional Video
Images and footage captured through video surveillance cameras can be used to make a timelapse video. Such videos are ideal to assure potential investors and stakeholders about the continuous progress of your project.
With such a wide range of benefits, it’s no surprise that solar powered cameras are such a hit with the construction industry. And moreover, their popularity continues to grow year after year.
