Commando V-Series 24/7 5MP 4G/3G/WiFi Solar Camera System & Weather Station
Commando V-series 5 Megapixel high definition outdoor web camera system & Weather Station.
Utilising a solar powered 3G/4G-LTE internet connected system with a high end IP camera and remote weather station sensor suite. The Commando is a 24/7 site monitoring tool that is ideal for multiple use applications such as uploading time lapse images to a web server while also providing a full online site monitoring tool that has images and weather data that can be available to many stakeholders or direct to the public. This system combines a super high resolution IP camera with a Davis Weather Station, a 24/7 solar power system and a 4G internet connection to produce the ultimate fully stand alone monitoring station.
These systems are used in applications such as flood warning systems, wildlife research and pest control, extreme weather monitoring or construction projects for time lapse recording while also logging rain days and monitoring site progress and wind conditions. These systems can also be used for public infrastructure locations such as boat ramps and beaches to provide accurate weather data and visual inspection for public uses.
With the rapid development of wireless 3G and 4G broadband internet, supported by today's affordable solar energy solutions, these industrial grade camera systems can be rapidly deployed to any location. To compliment these technologies we utilise a premium high definition web camera with extensive multi-stream functionality. The quality of the camera and the images it produces revolutionises the use of webcam applications.
Our camera systems can be accessed remotely for real-time live viewing via the mobile phone networks. In addition to this we also include a fully customisable image viewing website platform for viewing static images that have been uploaded by the camera. This is ideal for presenting images to a wide audience without needing to provide direct access to the camera.

Super High Definition Multi-Stream Web Camera
A best-in-class 5 megapixel HD+ multi-stream IP camera for extreme outdoor applications. This camera boasts super high definition 5 Megapixel HD+ (2560 x 1920 px) resolution, allowing for the delivery of extremely detailed images and coverage that is 16 times larger than a standard VGA CCTV camera and will be significantly larger than your computer screen when viewed at full size. This camera also includes a remotely adjustable optical lens to alter the optical zoom and focus as well as being able to utilise digital zoom.
To maximize the benefit of the 5 megapixel sensor, the V5 Camera Head employs several innovative technologies for optimized bandwidth efficiency. The ePTZ function enables users to quickly move to a target area for close-up shots without moving the camera physically. Users can also receive only the portions of the images they are interested in via the cropping function.
Multiple imager/video streams can be delivered simultaneously in different resolutions, frame rates, and image qualities for viewing on different platforms so as to meet different needs or bandwidth constraints. This enables digital manipulation of the live viewing stream while keeping the other streams set for active event capture. The V5 also offers activity adaptive streaming support that dynamically allocates bandwidth according to the video content and trigger state.
Designed for outdoor surveillance, the V5 features auto-iris capability to protect the lens from damage induced by direct sunlight. To adapt to light changes throughout the day, the camera includes a removable IR-cut filter and IR illuminators for superior image quality around the clock. The V5 also comes with an IP66-rated housing that offers protection against rain and dust to ensure functional operation in all types of weather conditions.
With other advanced features such as tamper detection, SD/SDHC/SDXC card on-board storage, and two-way audio (full duplex), the V5 is an all-in-one super high definition multi-stream IP network camera for outdoor environments.

Wireless 4G-LTE/3G Broadband Internet
Includes an industrial grade wireless broadband 4G-LTE modem and router with fallback to 3G as well as an external high gain base station multi-band mobile broadband antenna for improved reception strength.
This system utilises an industrial grade 4G-LTE/3G wireless internet modem/router to connect to the internet. We can assist you with activating a mobile broadband data sim on the Telstra network through our recommended Authorised Telstra Mobile Dealer or alternatively you can arrange the activation of a sim card to your existing Telstra account via your own Telstra representative.
For ease of setup and installation we recommend our clients to activate one of our blank Telstra sims to their account so that we can pre-install the sim and test all system functionality prior to delivery. This enables you to simply unpack and mount the system and then turn it on to achieve instnt full remote system functionality.
All Australian ISP mobile data sims are compatible with our systems, although to obtain full remote access functionality it is recommended to use the Telstra Mobile Network.
International customers will need to source and install a 4G/3G broadband sim card from a local provider. The multi-band modem will connect to almost all networks around the world that use the normal range of frequencies.
Cellular Connection Frequencies include:
4G LTE FDD 800/ 900/ 1800/ 2100/ 2600MHz
UMTS/ HSPA/ HSUPA/ HSPA/ HSPA+/ DC-HSPA+ 850/ 900/ 1900/ 2100Mhz
Quad-band EGSM 850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900MHz
For Australian customers we recommend the Telstra Mobile Broadband netwrok to achieve the maximum coverage, speeds and connection functionality.
The cost of ongoing internet bandwidth costs are the customers responsibility to maintain separately to the cost of this system.
For international customers, our Multi-Band 4G-LTE/3G Modems work in most countries. We can send detailed instructions for installing your own sim card and configuring your internet connection. We will still pre-configure your router settings as much as we can before shipping the product. Full support via phone, email and skype is included to assist you with connection setup.
For full remote access functionality an internet connection with a publicly accessible IP address is required. Some mobile broadband services are setup by default with a non-public firewalled IP address, which would enable outgoing uploads but no remote access into the system. Most ISPs can provide a connection with a public IP address upon request. International clients are recommended to contact your local mobile broadband ISP to confirm the availability of a Public IP address service prior to purchase to ensure full remote access system funtionslity can be achieved.
Solar Charge Controller
Solar charge controller with internal microprocessor providing optimal charging current and voltage. The charge controller includes 3-stage (Bulk, Absorption & Float) charging with temperature compensation ensuring correct maintenance of the internal lead acid battery and maximising the service life of the battery.
The solar charge controller also includes low voltage cutoff protection to preserve the battery and to protect other system conponents from powering on below the required voltage.
Our solar systems use a 12V internal power circuit which means they are very safe to use and do not require an electrician for installation or maintenance.
The systems include an 8-day programmble digital timer to manage auto on/off times for system power.
Monocrystalline Solar Panels
These monocrystalline silicon solar panels are designed for long life (up to 25 years) and high efficiency output. An excellent solution for remote or mobile power applications. Aluminium frames and tempered glass panels allow installation in demanding environments. To prevent moisture ingress, the solar cell modules are protected by a sheet of 3.2mm tempered glass. Operating temperature -40°C to 85°C.
Lead Acid Battery
Sealed, non spillable Lead Acid Battery. System case can accommodate up to 100 Amp/Hour capacity for different usage applications. New design for easier replacement of batteries.
The Commando range of systems are suitable for 24 hour day/night applications.
Option available to supply system without battery. Ideal for airfreight to international customers due to the weight saving and means the shipment does not include dangerous goods for easy international customs clearance.
