Do you offer pole camera units that can be deployed for temporary and remote site video surveillance?
Yes, we offer deployable video surveillance units that are ideal for temporary situations where rapid deployment is needed. These units are fully self-contained and can be easily hung on a utility pole or building and relocated as needed. They are popular with law enforcement and government for monitoring high crime areas and large outdoor events and gatherings. These units are also ideal for oil and gas sites, electrical substations, and construction sites where high dollar equipment and operations require additional security.
i2c Technologies offers a variety of units with rugged housings, including covert units for law enforcement and military operations. Each unit is fully equipped with an onboard server, an advanced 4G LTE cellular data modem, video management software, and a variety of camera options. Most units are designed for one-man deployment and require only 100 VAC for power.
i2c recently unveiled their newest deployable unit the VPMax Customizable Pole Camera System which offers a variety of camera and accessory options including: fixed HD cameras, 1080p PTZ cameras, thermal imaging cameras, license plate recognition cameras, gunshot detection, and strobe lights.
We will ship these units anywhere in the continental U.S. and every purchase includes remote set-up and configuration by our U.S.-based tech support team to ensure your system running smoothly.
