MicroPower to Offer Wireless Surveillance Platform for Schools Through Grant Program
The company will offer its SOLVEIL platform to one school each month for the next 10 months.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — MicroPower Technologies, a provider of video surveillance solutions, announced on Tuesday it will offer its SOLVEIL integrated solar, wireless surveillance platform to K-12 schools through a newly developed grant program designed to help schools better address threats and further strengthen security efforts.
Faced with the growing threats of violence, vandalism and attacks, MicroPower says today’s schools must ensure a safe environment for students, faculty and staff, while protecting infrastructure and assets. With continued budget restraints, investments for security expansions can be limited. MicroPower seeks to assist schools through a partnership that partially addresses common financial limitations.

MicroPower will select one school per month during the next 10 months to receive the hardware, software and additional equipment necessary to implement SOLVEIL HD. The SOLVEIL package includes a megapixel surveillance camera, solar panel, lens and RF radio, lithium ion batteries, a pole mount adapter, one Hub and one Ethernet connector. MicroPower says it will collaborate to identify a certified systems integration partner to assist the school with the installation.
“Today’s educational facilities face a growing number of challenges that can hinder the open environments that best support learning. Today’s schools need open video surveillance solutions that can help address risks in outdoor and perimeter locations,” said Aaron Tankersley, CEO of MicroPower. “The grant program is one way that MicroPower hopes to give back to communities and schools that need added security, but are unable to fully commit to updated technology because of budget constraints.”
