MicroPower Technologies highlights solar wireless surveillance for retail

Touts rapid set-up up video security system for parking lot applications


New Orleans – MicroPower Technologies, an award-winning provider of surveillance solutions optimized for rapid, cost-effective deployment, will highlight its wireless surveillance technologies at next week’s 2012 National Retail Federation Loss Prevention Conference & Expo, being held June 20-22, 2012, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. At booth no. 317, MicroPower will demonstrate its completely integrated security solutions, highlighting the benefits of new deployment strategies in retail parking lots and outdoor perimeters to enhance loss prevention strategies, reduce liability and control shrink.

The MicroPower Rugged-i, a solar-powered, wireless surveillance camera, introduces a new level of video quality and reliability unachieved by current outdoor WiFi cameras. The comprehensive MicroPower system consists of the Rugged-i and the MiniHub, an intelligent wireless receiver used in conjunction with the Rugged-i that relies on MicroPower’s proprietary wireless protocol, TrustLinx, to provide maximum uptime. The addition of the MicroPower surveillance solution enables retailers to effectively expand security efforts around the store’s perimeter without expensive trenching. Retail management can easily deploy a MicroPower system to monitor activity, stop incidents before they occur and leverage recorded video to conduct quick investigations.

“Most cost-sensitive retailers turn their back on securing parking lots when they realize how expensive it is to provide power to remote areas, but our cameras are truly wireless and, therefore, trenching is unnecessary,” said Jon Siann, Founder and CEO, MicroPower Technologies. “At NRF LP, we will demonstrate how retailers can curb theft and increase safety by extending their surveillance reach to outdoor perimeters with affordable, robust and ‘green’ technology.”

MicroPower video surveillance solutions dramatically improve the economics of system deployment, particularly in far-reaching perimeter surveillance applications through patented technology that delivers significant improvements in performance and power without compromising video quality and reliability. Its comprehensive surveillance system, which includes the Rugged-i and the MiniHub, can be deployed in a matter of hours as no wires or trenching is required. MicroPower solutions are currently deployed in retail applications across the country including large specialty grocery stores, specialty retailers and automobile dealerships.
