Oliver-Ramsay Security delivers Solar Powered Camera Solution to Food Manufacturer, on time and under budget

The Oliver-Ramsay Security technical team recently delivered an interesting solution to one of our valued customers in the Food Manufacturing sector. Our customer needed a CCTV Camera with Night Vision Capability in an area with no available power or network connections. OR Security staff worked with our suppliers to design and custom build a suitable solution, some of which was fabricated in house.

– 250 Watt 24 Volt Solar Panel

– Victron Smart Solar Bluetooth controller (allows remote login to view solar panel wattage, voltage and output via Bluetooth connection using mobile app.)
