Hikvision 4G solar kit for remote security

Hikvision DS-2XS6A25G0-I/CH20S40 IP camera

Hikvision, an IoT solution provider with video as its core competency, has launched a new 4G Solar Panel Kit for Standalone Security Sites. This will revolutionize the protection of remote assets in hard to reach places by proving a security camera that runs on solar power.

The kit (DS-2XS6A25G0-I/CH20S40) includes a 4G camera, a solar panel, a battery, and a bracket, and can provide one-stop monitoring in remote environments. This means providers can deliver connected security to scenarios such as agriculture, animal husbandry, and forest fire prevention, as well as temporary monitoring of construction sites.

The issue of having no power or network is no longer a problem, with the kit providing power to the camera through the solar panel and connectivity through 4G. It sends data to a communication station and then on to the security monitoring centre, where it can be managed using HikCentral Professional, and the HikConnect app. This means both monitoring and management activities, like viewing footage live, can be done remotely over the 4G network.

Its lightweight design makes the kit easy to install, so just one person can install it with a pole mount. The IP67 level of protection makes it hardy against rain, and it also survives well against the strong winds often experienced in remote areas.

The kit demonstrates long endurance, detecting power levels and automatically adjusting to power-saving mode when they are low. This means it can work continuously for seven days in cloudy and rainy weather when fully charged.

Features include:

  • 40 watt solar panel
  • 20 Ah, built-in rechargeable battery
  • 2 MP @ 30fps
  • DarkFighter® for low-light imaging
  • 8 / 4 / 8 mm lens options
  • 30 m IR distance
  • Built-in 4G (LTE-TDD/LTE-FDD/TD-SCDMA/EVDO) module.
