We are looking at maybe putting a couple cameras on some parking light poles. The issue is most of the lights are solar LED's so I do not know if the batteries can support the additional load of cameras. The other issue is the voltage.
The lights still hardwired are on lighting controllers so we would need to move photocells, contactors to poles, then stepdown voltage at each pole.
May be easier to just do solar at various poles.
Application is a shopping center/strip mall with a pitched roof. If we put the cameras on the roof, we have to shoot down a pitch and have a blind spot on the front parking spaces
2-3 Dahua cameras, 10W max each with IR, and 1-2 Ubiquiti radios. No PTZ. I know the system will have to match the load and account for clouds, etc.
Rough ballpark price for panels, battery, and converter?
