MicroPower Announces K-12 School Security Grant Program

The grant program will help ten schools improve their facility’s security.

MicroPower Technologies Inc., a provider of surveillance solutions, announced Dec. 2 that it will offer its SOLVEIL integrated solar, wireless surveillance platform to K-12 schools through a newly developed grant program designed to help schools better address threats and further strengthen school security efforts.

In an effort to assist schools with budget constraints, MicroPower will select one school per month over the next 10 months to receive the hardware, software and additional equipment necessary to implement SOLVEIL HD. The SOLVEIL package includes a megapixel surveillance camera, solar panel, lens and RF radio, lithium ion batteries, a pole mount adapter, one Hub and one Ethernet connector. MicroPower will collaborate to identify a certified systems integration partner to assist the school with the installation.

The SOLVEIL HD surveillance platform is a powerful and highly reliable megapixel camera that allows users to achieve high-resolution video coverage in perimeter and outdoor areas for enhanced security and operations monitoring, according to the company. Its integrated wireless and solar-power capabilities eliminate the need for power, network and transmission cabling, reducing up-front costs and installation complexity. Operating on a nominal ¾-watt, the SOLVEIL solution can capture and transmit live video up to a half-mile away and provide reliable performance for up to five days on a single charge of its integrated, long-life battery pack.

SOLVEIL is ONVIF Profile S conformant and easily integrates with today’s leading video management systems.
