Remote locations bring unique challenges from a security standpoint. Equipment logistics, lack of power, and unreliable internet connections are all factors that need to be taken into consideration when trying to monitor an off-grid site. At LiveView Technologies, we know that our systems can literally save lives, so they need to be reliable. That’s why we offer solar-powered security options that don’t require wires, internet, or power—and to make our LVT Units even more reliable, we recently partnered with SFC Energy to equip them with backup EFOY® power cells. 

Solar-powered security  

Solar panels have—understandably—become increasingly popular over the past couple of decades. Besides the cost of the solar panels themselves, solar power is basically free energy. In addition to being cost-effective, solar panels are also easy to install. There is no need for messy wires or heavy equipment to install solar panels, which makes them a great solution for remote areas where running cables would be impossible. It should also be noted that solar panels allow you to generate power regardless of power outages, so they are especially advantageous if you have a site in a location where access to power isn’t always reliable. Solar panels are a huge part of what makes LVT Units so dependable, scalable, and simple to use. 

EFOY® power cells

While solar power is generally very reliable, you can’t always depend on the weather to give you the solar energy you need. LVT wanted to find a way to prevent any possible issues caused by solar power vulnerabilities, so we partnered with SFC Energy. Thanks to that partnership, we can now equip LVT Units with EFOY® power cells as a backup power source. 

So, what is EFOY®? It is an energy solution that uses fuel cell technology and creates power through a chemical reaction. Essentially, this solution gives us the ability to create power on-demand. These fuel cell solutions are highly reliable and don't require preventative maintenance. The fuel cells constantly monitor the state of charge of the batteries and automatically maintain them when the voltage drops, which means LVT Units have a fully reliable power supply in any weather, any location, and at all times of the year. Furthermore, EFOY® is clean energy that creates zero nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, or fine dust emissions. 

Crime can happen anywhere at any time, so we created a surveillance solution that never blinks. If you are interested in getting a security system that will monitor your site for you so you can focus on everything else on your to-do list, contact the LVT team today
