Are you looking for a way to provide power and remote connectivity to your own IP camera or other device in an off grid area? Then Foscam CCTV has the solution.

Foscam’s Off Grid Solar Security Hub provides a regulated 12v supply to power your device along with a standard USB outlet. This model will power one Foscam camera 24/7 with back-up battery.

The system has its own Lithium battery charged via an on board solar panel allowing it to run indefinitely with out recharging from the mains. It’s completely silent with no noisy generators or hazardous fuel stored on site – perfect for residential areas or a long deployment. The power system is designed for SA conditions and is fully compliant with SA electrical regulations. It includes an industrial 12v regulated power supply to protect your equipment from voltage variances.

Well engineered

Nice piece of kit, well-engineered and light enough to self-mount. Not using a Foscam camera, my next purchase will kit the whole kit including the SD2X.
