Creative CCTV Security Solutions – Solar and Wireless!

Large and small commercial buildings alike rely on closed circuit television (CCTV) surveillance technology to improve the security of the premises. Video cameras can be set up to capture people coming and leaving a building, or cars entering and exiting a parking garage. But what do you do when you need to capture license plate information at the remote entrances to your facility, but you don’t have power or communications available?

The Coral Springs Medical Center in South Florida had this concern so they contacted Advanced Control Corporation and worked with a team of design professionals and collaborated on the most effective solution.

Advanced Control’s Service Department designed a “Solar Powered Wireless Mega-Pixel IP Camera” to solve the problem. The video cameras are equipped with infrared illuminators for capture of license plate information both during the day and night. Images are wirelessly transmitted via a dedicated Point to Point Wireless Ethernet System to the hospital’s networked IP video surveillance system. Finally, to optimize efficiency, the video equipment is all directly powered from a solar array.

The solution implemented by Advanced Control Corporation allows Coral Springs Medical Center to obtain video surveillance of remote entrances to the hospital, without wires or a connected power source. The video cameras integrate seamlessly with the substantial CCTV system installed by Advanced Control and provide clear images, both day and night.
