Although capabilities vary between devices and their apps, all security cameras allow you to monitor motion and sound through live or recorded video. Some of the features that differentiate them are resolution (1080p, 2K, 4K, 8K), motion tracking, alarms, notifications, AI activity detection, picture notification, two-way audio, user sharing, cloud storage, and local SD card storage. Most are compatible with hubs such as Alexa, and Google Home.

The Soliom Security Cameras

Soliom security cameras focus on solar solutions. They have 1080P video, 2 way audio, Pan tilt, Spotlight, Motion detection, Micro SD cards and notifications. You have Wifi and LTE options. The cameras are designed for easy setup. They have integrated spotlight, color night vision, wide viewing angle (Pan 355° and Tilt 90°), rechargeable battery.  The newer models offer 24/7 recording and areas with good direct sunlight have all faired well in our tests even with weeks of cloudy days.

The app that runs these camera has shared access control for up to 10 people at the same time. There are 4 types of permission levels allowing the most variations of all the apps we’ve seen. You can subscribe to their cloud storage or use the Micro SD Card storage to view recordings. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon LTE/Cellular carriers 4G SIM cards are accepted. Note that cloud storage and cellular service has a continual cost associated.

Solar Security Surveillance Cameras

Solar powered cameras get their power from sunlight that powers a battery that powers the camera. This type of camera generally isn’t a continuously running camera, it uses a sensor that is triggered by motion and sound. They can be wi-fi or LTE cameras. Wi-Fi has its distance limitation depending on obstacles, too many and you will have issues. Another way of describing LTE is cellular. LTE require sim cards from a cellular provider so you’ll need to ensure there is decent cellular signal in the area to have good results.

This type of camera is beneficial when running wires would leave wiring exposed, the work to run the cabling would be cost prohibitive, or just no easy availability of electricity. They tend to cost less to install (around $200 per camera). Places like farms, cabins, construction site, or remote personal property use solar cameras successfully.

Key things to consider is how much sunlight the area gets. Generally speaking, the best locations should get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. The lower amount of sunlight means eventually the battery may drain and you will have to manually recharge which can mean unmount the camera and be very inconvenient and counterproductive. Many of these cameras do have an option to be connected hardwired to power but then we wouldn’t call them solar anymore.
