Helios IR Camera

MIcropower Technologies' Helios IR Solar Powered Camera

The MicroPower Helios™ IR camera is the next generation of solar wireless surveillance.

This ultra-low power day/night camera captures and transmits IR illuminated images wirelessly up to a ½ mile, allowing the flexibility to place cameras where most needed without incurring additional costs for trenching for data or power cables. By incorporating an IR illuminator designed specifically for outdoor solar wireless operation, the Helios™ IR Camera consumes less that 1/10th of the power of an industry standard IP camera and transmits data wirelessly— all powered by solar energy. The Helios™ IR surveillance system is easy and quick to install, which minimizes deployment time and reduces business disruption. Leveraging existing infrastructure, the end user has the flexibility to place cameras where they are needed most.
