Solar panels for CCTV cameras works by allowing photons, or particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity.
The more sunlight solar panels can get, the more energy they will generate, but that doesn’t mean the solar panel won’t work under undesired weather conditions.
For example, in rainy or cloudy days, the solar panel for security IP cameras is still able to generate electricity with visible light getting through rain and clouds, but with less efficiency.
In simple terms, the sunlight that the solar panel capturers during the day powers the camera and charges the camera's rechargeable batteries so it can continued to be powered during the night and in periods when there is less sunlight.
We have a range of Wireless Solar Powered Security Cameras available here.
