Advantages and disadvantages of solar camera


As an outdoor monitoring, solar monitoring has relatively more advantages than disadvantages. Therefore, solar monitoring is still the first choice for outdoor monitoring.

• 1. It can be installed by itself, no need to hire construction workers;

• 2. Monitoring angle: 360-degree monitoring without dead angle, with zoom, you can also adjust the monitoring distance;

• 3. No need to connect to electricity: solar cell light-to-power conversion and built-in battery pack exchange power supply;

• 4. No need for wiring: no need to drill through walls, no need to damage decoration, no need to transmit power over long distances;

• 5. Out-of-the-box and ready to use: not limited by distance, you can watch remotely in real time as long as the network is stable.


Disadvantages of Solar Monitoring

• 1. After the energy stored in the battery is used up, if the sunlight received by the solar panel is still weak, the power supply is insufficient, and the continuous monitoring cannot be guaranteed;

• 2. Because solar monitoring is a wireless monitoring with a solar system installed, so like wireless monitoring, the signal is easily affected by the environment, thus affecting the monitoring screen.

Points for attention in installing solar monitoring


 1. There should be no shelter on the top of the solar panel, so as not to affect the sunlight and electric energy conversion of the solar system;

 2. The installation of solar monitoring must be stable and not easy to change, so as to prevent the monitoring screen from shaking;

 3. Do not pull or twist the connecting wire on the surveillance camera to prevent power supply problems;

 4. Insert a 4G card. If the signal is unstable, you can build a wireless bridge to ensure smooth transmission.

Maintenance of Surveillance Cameras

 1. Avoid directing the camera to the sun, so as not to damage the image sensing device of the camera;

 2. Avoid contact between the camera and substances such as oil, water, steam, water vapor and dust;

 3. Do not use harsh cleaners or organic solvents to wipe the camera;

 4. Do not disassemble the camera at will and try to touch its internal parts unless necessary, so as not to lose the camera.

Battery full charge and power supply duration

The 1.40W solar panel is equipped with a 15Ah battery, which can be fully charged in 7.5 hours under sufficient sunlight, and can supply power for 15 hours in rainy days;

The 2.50W solar panel is equipped with a 20Ah battery, which can be fully charged in 8 hours under sufficient sunlight, and can supply power for 20 hours in rainy days;

The 3.60W solar panel is equipped with a 20Ah battery, which can be fully charged in 6 hours when there is sufficient sunlight, and can supply power for 20 hours in rainy days.



The shortcomings of solar monitoring can be overcome directly or indirectly.

1. By connecting to WiFi or inserting a 4G card into the network for solar monitoring, signal reception can be enhanced through signal reception enhancement equipment;

2. In addition to the insufficient light caused by continuous cloudy and rainy days, when the other light is strong, the solar battery can be fully charged to ensure the power supply of the monitor.
