Solar farm security from a market-leader in remote CCTV monitoring

Solar farms face a unique set of risks and are increasingly being targeted by thieves.

Solar panel theft is an increasing concern. One farmer, who lost 192 solar panels to theft, was quoted in Farmer’s Weekly saying, “My advice to other farmers is put security higher up your priority list…I just wonder if this might be the start of a crime wave.”*

So what can you do to stop your solar farm becoming a target for criminals?

Invest in remote CCTV monitoring from Farsight Security Services

What is remote CCTV monitoring and how can it help with solar farm security?

Security experts can monitor the CCTV installed at your site 24/7, making your security systems cost-efficient and effective.

When unusual activity is detected at your site, your solar farm CCTV will send images of the activity to security operators at the Farsight remote monitoring station. The operators will then begin to monitor the CCTV cameras live from your site, analysing footage to identify what caused the alarm and take appropriate action.
