How is Electricity Supplied to CCTV Cameras?

Power over Ethernet (PoE)

This technology is very different and effective for power supply. PoE technology transmits power to CCTV cameras through a single Ethernet cable, reducing the required number of cables.

AC Power Supply

AC power supplies typically involve plugging the camera into a power outlet using a dedicated power adapter or a power cable.

DC Power Supply

DC power is commonly used in situations where longer cable runs are necessary, such as outdoor installations or larger surveillance systems.

Battery Power

Battery-powered CCTV cameras are typically wireless and can be installed quickly without the need for extensive wiring. The batteries can be charged using a power adapter or solar panels. 

Solar Power

Solar-powered CCTV systems utilize solar panels to capture sunlight and convert it into electrical energy.  Most importantly, they don’t rely on the electrical grid and operate independently.

Hybrid Power Solution

Hybrid power solutions integrate multiple power options, such as PoE, AC power, DC power, batteries, or solar power, to provide redundancy and backup power.
