  • Solar Power Remote CCTV system

    I won't go into too much specifics but have come across an advertisement for a solar powered CCTV remote control camera on a mast. Basically it was powered by a lead acid battery recharged through a trickle charger solar panel. Allegedly a 5km (about 3 miles) line of site range so being realistic and halving it and I know that these are being trialled for live-stock feed and water checking along with cabled systems.

    Has anyone seen of these in use and if so what were your thoughts or issues ? I am happy to provide the company details from the advertisement and remember this is in Australia too.

    Many Thanks,

    Can you post a link?
    The CCTV Blog.

    "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

      It's from a security magazine called SECURITY SOLUTIONS in Australia.

      The Company is Rhino Technology - and I could see the specifics in their products listing. It works of a Next G Network like a mobile phone broadcast and sends MPG-4 images back. I am happy to retype the specs or scan the article for you. Like I said - it is new technology to me which I was thinking of looking at for our DC interstate.

        I've been building systems similar to that for over 8 years. Our systems are made to be deployed and viewed/controled from anywhere on earth. The technology has come a long way since our first system 8 years ago. You can see the systems at If you have any questions about the technology let me know I would be happy to answer any questions you may have (unclassified information of course).
