Solar Camera

Security cameras powered by solar energy are very practical. During the day, the built-in solar panels take over the energy supply, and at night when the sun is not shining, the security cameras are supplied via the normal power grid. This way you can save a lot of money. This is particularly worthwhile if you use multiple cameras.

Install surveillance camera: This is important to note

Modern WLAN and IP cameras can be installed in just a few steps without much prior knowledge and controlled via app or laptop if required. But if you are too inexperienced in securing your home, you risk data protection problems when using the camera later. We, therefore, summarize the most important tips for camera installation and setup.

The most important tips for camera installation in brief

We have summarized at a glance what is important when selecting and installing a surveillance camera.

Camera location: Indoor use of the camera is not a problem as long as visitors e.g. B. be informed about this via a sign at the entrance. Secret filming, on the other hand, is prohibited. This also applies in particular to outdoor cameras, which are not allowed to film public areas such as sidewalks or streets. Signs pointing to CCTV cameras must also be attached here.

Image transmission: Modern WLAN cameras send images live to their owner's smartphone, enabling them to react quickly. So the person z. For example, you can see directly whether a stray cat or a burglar has activated the motion alarm on its outdoor camera.

Data storage: Saving photographic evidence via the cloud has the advantage that even if the camera is stolen or damaged by criminals, the recordings cannot be destroyed. However, in addition to a good internet connection, cloud use often requires a subscription from the camera manufacturer. Cheaper alternatives to this form of storage are e.g. B. local data storage via SD card or connection to a NAS (Network Attached Storage) system.

Extras: Premium cameras often come with an additional integrated siren or floodlight, and some can even be controlled by voice command.

Cable, battery, or solar power? Camera power tips

Surveillance cameras with rechargeable batteries are usually the easiest to install because you don't have to lay cables or look for a socket. In addition, when battery cameras are mounted high, criminals cannot simply cut off the power supply to disable them. On the other hand, changing the battery for cameras that are difficult to reach is very cumbersome.

Tip: Before you buy, check the battery life carefully, as some models can only show an operating life of 6 months before the battery needs to be recharged and that is only under optimal operating conditions.

Wired surveillance cameras are a bit more complex to install and require more technical knowledge. However, they do not require any maintenance in the long term and are therefore particularly popular with users who want to use many cameras at the same time.

Tip: If you can't decide between these two variants, you have the option of using an outdoor camera with a battery and solar panel.

Where to install a surveillance camera?

First, you have to decide between indoor and outdoor surveillance. We recommend securing the outdoor entrance area and being notified via a WiFi camera if a break-in attempt occurs. This allows users to intervene before major property damage occurs.

Tip: For optimal surveillance of the surroundings, it is worth trying out several camera positions and considering whether it should be placed on the wall, under the eaves, or perhaps even well hidden in a tree. Good lighting is also important to achieve good video quality. You can e.g. B. be achieved by a camera with an integrated floodlight.

Tip: Anyone who fears conflicts with neighbors should use a permanently installed camera instead of a pivoting camera in order to be able to prove in the event of a dispute that it could not film the private areas of third parties.
