Solar & Wind Powered Alarm & Security Systems
At the EDC, we supply custom designed off-grid solar or wind
systems which are perfect for remote, off-grid alarm or security
Remote buildings & property are often targeted by thieves.
Many of these buildings do not have any power supply, and so installing
a security system can be a major problem.
However, with a solar or wind powered security system, clients can
install alarm systems in the remotest locations. As with most equipment
to be run from solar or wind, it makes a lot of difference to the
viability of the project if the alarm is capable of being powered from
12v or 24v dc.
A solar or wind powered alarm system offers a completely
independent power supply, so if the national grid has a power cut, the
security system will continue to operate normally.
In order to establish what size of power system is required,
it is important to establish what the average daily power draw of the
alarm system is. The power draw information can either be tested, which
is the preferred method, or you can ask the manufacturer for average
power draw figures (which tends to be less accurate).

Due to the critical nature of most security systems, we suggest that
you contact our System Design Engineers with full details of your
application, so that they can design a power system to meet your exact
