Good day all,

I'm having real trouble to bring power to the location i want to install my camera.

Is anyone aware of a camera with relative good specs that can operate without mains power supply?


Many thanks

Unfortunately, we do not offer any battery powered IP cameras. There are some options, but none that are good ones. Certain alarm manufacturers like Videofied sell battery powered IP cameras, but they are very low resolution and only take snapshots. If the camera is outdoors, you could power it with a solar panel. It isn't cheap to do, but there are solar panels designed to power both an IP camera and a wireless access point. You can expect to spend several thousand dollars for such an option.

In case you are not aware, our IP cameras are POE capable so you can power them over the same Cat5 cable used to connect them to the network.
