CCTV cameras are developing in some amazing ways. One of the most recent developments is them becoming solar-powered. This is basically the CCTV camera having a solar panel placed onto it. This offers many different benefits. The main benefit of this being that the solar panel can charge the camera. Allowing it to not need to be wired into your home, and not need constant battery changes. Solar-powered CCTV cameras will also help you to save money. As they run 24/7 they can become costly. The solar panel will give them power, meaning they will be creating their own electricity. They will not be constantly using power from your home which you pay for. The main issue with solar-powered CCTV cameras is their placement. You need them to be placed in an area where the light will hit them. This can be difficult on a building as lots of suitable areas can block the sunlight.
