SAN DIEGO–MicroPower Technologies, a provider of surveillance solutions, announced in December that it will offer its SOLVEIL  integrated solar, wireless surveillance platform to K-12 schools through a newly developed grant program designed to help schools better address threats and further strengthen security efforts.
 
With continued budget restraints, funds to expand security in schools are often limited. MicroPower seeks to assist schools through a partnership that partially addresses today’s common financial constraints.  
 
Under the new program, MicroPower will select one school per month over the next 10 months to receive the hardware, software and additional equipment necessary to implement SOLVEIL HD. The package includes a megapixel surveillance camera, solar panel, lens and RF radio, lithium ion batteries, a pole mount adapter, one Hub and one Ethernet connector. MicroPower will collaboratewith the school to identify a certified systems integration partner to assist the school with the installation.
 
“Today’s educational facilities face a growing number of challenges that can hinder the open environments that best support learning. Today’s schools need open video surveillance solutions that can help address risks in outdoor and perimeter locations,” said Aaron Tankersley, CEO, MicroPower, in a prepared statement.“The grant program is one way that MicroPower hopes to give back to communities and schools that need added security, but are unable to fully commit to updated technology because of budget constraints.”
 
The SOLVEIL HD surveillance platform is a megapixel camera that allows users to achieve high-resolution video coverage in perimeter and outdoor areas for enhanced security and operations monitoring. Its integrated wireless and solar-power capabilities eliminate the need for power, network and transmission cabling, reducing up-front costs and installation complexity.

Operating on a nominal ¾-watt, the SOLVEIL solution can capture and transmit live video up to a half-mile away and run for up to five days on a single charge of its integrated, long-life battery pack. SOLVEIL is ONVIF Profile S conformant and integrates with leading video management systems.
