This article details the installation of the solar panel which can serve as a source of power supply for battery-powered cameras.
You may refer to the following steps to connect your Reolink solar-powered cameras to a Reolink solar panel to get non-stop power.
Step 1. Please choose a location for your solar panel that gets the most sunlight throughout the year.
The Reolink solar panel needs only a few hours of direct sunlight to sufficiently power up your camera daily. The amount of energy that the solar panel can produce is affected by weather conditions, seasonal changes, geographic locations, etc.
Step 2. Mount the bracket with the mounting template and the screws provided in the package.
Step 3. Slot the solar panel into the bracket and make sure that it is secure.
Step 4. Loosen the adjustment knob on the bracket, and adjust the angle of the solar panel to receive the most direct sunlight. Then re-tighten the adjustment knob to secure the panel.
Step 5. Connect the solar panel to the Reolink battery-powered camera with the micro USB cable.
- Make sure the solar panel is not blocked. The energy harvesting efficiency drops drastically even when a small portion of the solar panel is blocked.
- Please don’t install the solar panel completely horizontally. Otherwise, your solar panel might accumulate dust and other debris easily. It’s advised to install the solar panel angularly to receive the most direct sunlight.
- Wipe the solar panel regularly to remove dust or debris.
- Please charge the batteries in temperature between 0°C and 45°C (32-113°F). The solar panel won't charge the camera at temperatures below 0°C (32°F).
