Most autonomous live camera systems require a video management system (VMS) and storage on-board the camera. Mobotix and AXIS cameras meet these requirements.

Mobotix cameras include an embedded VMS. For storage, Mobotix cameras support up to 256GB SD cards. The power requirement for Mobotix outdoor ready cameras is 5-7 watts. This combination of features and functionality make Mobotix our most popular camera for solar powered projects.

AXIS offers a very wide range of cameras that include fixed cameras up to 33MP image size, thermal cameras and many pan-tilt-zoom models to choose from. AXIS cameras do not include a full featured VMS, however, AXIS is one of a few manufacturers that is supported by Exacq Edge VMS, which can run on a 64GB SD card, on-board an AXIS camera.

Another VMS option to consider for a stand-alone camera system is to run a VMS and storage on an embedded fanless industrial computer with a solid state drive (SSD). This does require  an outdoor rated NEMA enclosure to provide protection from the elements, and increases the system cost due to additional components and related increase in power requirements.

Communications Systems

4G/LTE CellularPoint-to-Point WirelessSatelliteManual

Point-to-point wireless camera system

Point to point wireless

Pair of Radios for Point-to-Point Wireless Link

A wireless camera system often uses a point-to-point wireless system. Distances up to 20 miles are possible using high-powered radios with dish antennas. Best performance requires operating in the 5.8Ghz spectrum with clear line of sight between sending and receiving radios. Alternative frequencies are 2.4Ghz or 900Mhz, which can penetrate some degree of obstructions (trees, walls, etc.).

Notes:

  • A point-to-point wireless system requires a minimum of 1 pair of radios, 1 to send video and 1 to receive video. The receiving radio (also referred to as gateway radio or gateway node) is most often located at a facility that has high-speed internet service, which allows live or recorded video to be accessed from any internet enabled device.
  • Systems may be accessed directly with an IP address with proper credentials, through a video management system or with Apps downloaded to Apple or Android devices.
  • Due to their unique codec and internal ring-buffer system, Mobotix cameras are particularly friendly to point-to-point wireless, 3G and 4G LTE environments with variable and unpredictable upstream bandwidth. The buffering system allows Mobotix cameras to recover from temporary interruptions or slowdowns in upstream connectivity by storing compressed image data in the buffer until the upstream connection is restored.

Satellite communications 

If wireless or cellular service is not available at your project location, you may want to consider using a satellite system. Satellite systems will work in most locations that lack cellular coverage.

Go to camera location, retrieve video directly from camera

If you don’t have any type of remote communications available, a couple options to retreive video are:

  • Run cat5-e shielded cable down pole to a “J” box with ethernet port installed, plug cable into port to retrieve video
  • Install wireless access point at this location to access video via your laptop when within 200′ of camera location

SD card onboard camera storage

128GB Micro SD Card

Most of our camera systems can store images and video clips on-board the camera with an industrial grade 256GB SD Micro Card

Embedded fanless industrial computer with SSD drives

Another option to consider for a stand-alone camera system is to run a video management system (VMS) and storage on an embedded fanless industrial computer with solid state drives (SSD). This requires an outdoor rated NEMA enclosure to provide protection from the elements, and increases the system cost due to additional components and related increase in power requirements.

QNAP NAS

Hot Swap 2-Bay NAS

NAS or Windows server located at receiving end of point-to-point wireless link

If you have a point-to-point wireless system, the camera can send video to a NAS or Windows server at the receiving end where internet connection and gateway radio is located.

Off-site storage

Images and video clips can be sent to a server at a different location or “in the cloud”. The limitations for this method are available bandwidth if using 4G/LTE communications.

Passive infrared sensors (PIR)

Long Range PIR

Long Range PIR

Passive infrared sensors are useful for detecting intrusions which can then be investigated with cameras (fixed or PTZ models). PIR sensors can be wireless, require very little power and can detect a human in zero light conditions at up to 400′ distance.

Off-Grid Power System Alternatives to Solar Electric

Battery PoweredThermoelectric GeneratorsFuel Cells

Battery back up power systems

Power Ready

Batteries charged by AC power

Batteries are charged by AC power at night, eliminating the need for solar panels.

Consider battery powered camera systems for parking lots or highways where AC power is on at night for lighting, AC power is off during daylight hours.

As an alternative to solar power, parking lots or highways with AC power to pole mounted lights can be equipped with battery back up power systems. This system replaces the solar array for charging the battery bank.

The 12V DC batteries are charged at night when AC power is delivered to the lights, the batteries power the cameras and related subsystems during the day and night. 12V DC power is converted to 48 volt or other voltages with PoE injectors to power cameras and other devices.
