San Diego, Calif. – Sept. 10, 2013 – MicroPower Technologies Inc., an award-winning provider of surveillance solutions optimized for rapid, cost-effective deployment, today announced the availability of the Helios™ IR Camera. With the addition of an energy efficient IR illuminator, the Helios day/night camera captures and transmits IR-illuminated video data wirelessly up to ½ mile.
MicroPower’s industry-first solar wireless surveillance camera is equipped with an IR illuminator to ensure complete day/night functionality and 24/7 video recording in outdoor, low-light environments. By incorporating an IR illuminator designed specifically for outdoor operation, the HeliosIR Camera consumes less that 1/10th of the power of an industry standard IP camera. Powered by solar energy and an internal, long-life lithium battery, the Helios IR Camera yields continuous operation for up to five days on a single charge.
“This addition to the MicroPower suite of surveillance solutions extends the use of the technology to more environments, especially those challenged by low light levels,” said Aaron Tankersley, CEO, MicroPower Technologies. “With the IR camera, the MicroPower Helios solution effectively extends security detection while enabling users to gain the freedom to place cameras in any location through the use of a truly wireless platform.”
The Helios IR Camera is a wireless solution that does not require cabling for power or data transmission. This unique approach removes the restrictions found with traditional cameras and aids systems integrators who can place cameras at the point of highest risk without the added complexity of trenching or pulling data or power cables. Furthermore, the system is designed with a smaller footprint — reducing the solar panel size to 1.2ft2.
MicroPower Technologies will showcase the Helios IR Camera alongside its comprehensive Helios surveillance system in booth #4301 at the upcoming ASIS International Seminar & Exhibits, being held September 24-27, 2013, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
