I want something different

We are flexible in how we work with you.

If you want to purchase just our Edge controllers and build the rest yourself, with enough volume we can organise that.

Alternatively, if you need help with manufacturing wiring harnnesses or sourcing cameras from China, we can help with that too.

We have a deep understanding of the CCTV supply industry and can offer unbiased advice with no ulterior sales motives.

One thing is for certain - we have one of the best software platforms for managing mobile CCTV systems.

Solar Powered Systems

We are experts in off grid CCTV systems and have a deep knowledge of Victron Energy products.

We have built a direct integration with Victron solar chargers and can offer full remote monitoring and confuration similar to Victron VRM, without any extra hardware, built directly into our platform.

We also have a lot of experience with lithium battery systems, and have our own LifePo4 batteries with full remote monitoring. We have a serial integration with JBD / Jiabaida / LLT based battery management systems.

And for those cloudy winter days, we can supply a tiny, 21kg, DC generator that can autostart and charge a lithium battery in just a couple of hours at 120 amps.


Just show me a demo

We'll send you a login to our platform so you can try it out with a live tower.
