Off-Grid Security Camera - Nature's Generator

Off-Grid Security Camera

Which off-grid security camera is the best?  To help fine-tune your search we listed down the features that make a top-notch security camera for your remote home.

Every once in a while, it’s nice to disconnect and enjoy the peace and serenity of being in a secluded place. No wonder more and more people are choosing to live or at least spend their holidays off the grid.

However, what others may not realize is that being away from civilization may present some unique security risks. For example, there will not be any neighbors to keep watch in case there’s a threat to your safety. Break-ins could be a risk for people who only uses their cabins every once in a while. That being said, an off-grid security camera system is a great addition to remote homes or RVs. 

In this article, we’ll cover the benefits of using off-grid security cameras, what features to look for, and Nature’s Generator’s solution to your off-grid security camera needs.

What are the benefits of using off-grid security cameras?

Sure, compared to living in the city, crime rates are not that high in the wilderness; however, this doesn’t eliminate the fact that security is still a consideration if you want to live off-grid. Protecting yourself and your property should still be on top of your list. 

With off-grid security cameras, you’ll have peace of mind that you have extra protection even if you’re in a remote area. Here are some advantages of using this type of surveillance camera:

  • Off-grid security cameras deter robberies in rural areas
  • Did you know that burglars target houses in rural or remote areas of the neighborhood? And they’ll often choose properties that look easier to break into (e.g. unlocked doors, open windows, etc.). With security cameras for your off-grid home, break-ins could be reduced by as much as 72%. 

  • Continuous surveillance even during power outages
  • Unfortunately, conventional CCTV cameras require electricity to fully function, which means during power interruptions like blackouts, your security system will also be down. The good news is, some off-grid security cameras run on alternative power sources, like solar, so you can monitor your property even during power outages. You can also consider installing remote security systems in your home in the city to reduce your reliance on the local power grid. 

  • Easy installation 
  • Another advantage of off-grid security cameras is that most are sold with a plug-and-play feature. You won’t have to worry about complicated installations to have your security system up and running. 

    What should I look for when buying off-grid security cameras?

    With a quick search on Google, you’ll find quite a selection of products available. You’ll probably end up asking “Which off-grid security camera is the best?” To help you fine-tune your search and make things easier for you, we listed down the features that make a top-notch remote CCTV camera. 

  • Non-stop Recording - Not all surveillance cameras record footage at all times. Some cameras only start recording while triggered, while others record at scheduled times. If you want 24/7 monitoring of your off-grid property, you want to look for a security camera that has a non-stop recording feature even during power interruptions. 

  • Motion Activation - A good security camera is something that works fast and will “wake up” and send you notifications when it detects movement. 

  • High Video Resolution - Naturally, you want to look for security cameras that deliver clear images. Cameras that deliver 5MP resolution, for example, are a good option as this is the mainstream resolution used for surveillance. 

  • Night Vision - If you want to monitor your off-grid cabin or campsite day and night, of course, you want to purchase security cameras that are capable of seeing in the dark. 

  • Wide Coverage - Another thing you want to consider when buying off-grid security cameras is their field of view (FOV). The FOV refers to how much coverage the equipment can capture. Cameras that have a range between 60 to 110 degrees are best to use for surveillance. 

  • Durability - Being in the wilderness could mean that your home will be more exposed to the elements. In that case, you want to look for a security camera that can withstand harsh weather conditions. 

  • Nature’s Generator Powerhouse Security Camera System
