Solar-powered remote video surveillance – a cost-effective solution
According to this white paper by MicroPower, the ability to monitor remote and geographically isolated infrastructure sites, where neither power nor network exist, is a core requirement of many industries including oil & gas, petrochemical, transportation and utilities (electric and water). Security and operations teams in these organisations face not only the task of constant situational awareness – monitoring these sites regardless of their location – but also the responsibility of quickly moving to situational assessment – determining when a change in conditions requires a decision regarding resources and deployment.
While telemetry and machine-to-machine (M2M) devices provide data for situational awareness, remote video streaming on demand or alarm-triggered supports the real-time, visual verification that security and operations professionals need to quickly assess a remote situation and take action immediately.
