Live Video Surveillance - Where and When You Need It

Sentry Solar is the cost-effective alternative to guard services and other over-built and over-priced surveillance trailers. The unit is self-contained and can be deployed almost anywhere in less than 10 minutes. The Sentry system puts live eyes on a problem location 24 hours a day without putting anyone in harm’s way. The system never sleeps, takes a break or calls in sick.

The Sentry Solar offers a dependable video surveillance solution for any location needing live remote monitoring, crime deterrence or real-time police response. The uses are endless: parking lots, boat docks, ranch gates, farms, HOA’s, intersections, sports events, concerts, construction sites, parks, schools, universities, government buildings, police departments, and most off-grid locations. The Sentry Mobile is the perfect solution for locations where power and communications are not readily available.

Deterrence & Response

The presence of a Sentry Solar on-site has an immediate deterrence effect on crime and other nuisance behaviors. The system offers three levels of monitoring and response. It can be deployed on-site and set to record all events to the onboard nvr without remote access or monitoring. The most popular option is the cellular data link service which allows you to remotely view cameras live, review recorded video, and receive programmed detection alerts directly to your smartphone. The most responsive option is our 24/7 video monitoring service. Our representatives respond to unwanted visitors in real-time, broadcasting warnings to leave and when needed, dispatch security services or the police.

Cost Effective

For less than $1 per hour, we monitor the system and respond to live events in real time. Other service providers charge per camera and quote huge monthlies tied to a multi-year contract. Our purchasing options adapt to your needs for less than half the cost of other solutions.

Effective Coverage Area

Each Sentry Solar unit provides an effective surveillance area of 196,000sq feet. The base unit is equipped with 6 cameras: 4 Active Deterrence PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras and 2 short-range Vandal Dome cameras.

The Active Deterrence PTZ cameras have an effective detection range of up to 300 feet. The cameras are referred to as “active deterrence” because they are equipped with advanced AI, allowing the camera to detect a human as well as motorized and non-motorized vehicle profiles with 99% accuracy. Each profile can have unique custom automated responses independent from the other profiles. For example, when the camera specifically detects a human profile entering a selected area, the camera can automatically broadcast a message to the intruder and activate its warning lights, while launching the live video feed to your smartphone and notifying our central monitoring center. The cameras are also equipped with live two-way communication.

The short-range 180-degree vandal dome cameras provide 100% coverage of the Sentry Mobile's perimeter. Any individual approaching the unit is instantly detected (up to 50 feet away). Verbal warnings can then be broadcast, instructing them to leave. When they come within 10 feet of the trailer (in any direction) two 120 BD sirens sound, forcing them to move back while drawing attention to the area. This automatic response also alerts our monitoring center which will instruct the individual to leave and that security or the police have been dispatched. This feature can be programmed for automated time schedules and the on-site users can deactivate the sirens with a wireless keyfob for unit access.

Camera Selection

Each Sentry Solar can support up to 8 Cyber-Secure surveillance cameras. Each unit can be customized with several different camera options in any combination. The camera options include active deterrence, long-range infrared pan-tilt-zoom, license plate capture, 24-hour color, motorized zoom and wide-angle fixed view. Give us a call and we’ll be glad to customize a Sentry Mobile to fit your exact needs.

License Plate ID & Capture

License Plate Capture

Add an LPR (license plate capture) camera to your Sentry trailer. The Sentry surveillance systems are equipped with advanced AI (Artificial Intelligence) built into the software. It provides the ability to identify license plates and send alerts if a known or unknown plate is detected. The system automatically detects, captures, and compares plates against a whitelist, blacklist, or unknown and can perform custom responses for each of them. The system automatically creates a video and snapshot of each plate which can be searched in the database. Several variables must be considered to reliably capture plates. Follow these rules and you’ll reliably capture plates.


The Sentry Solar offers the quickest deployment of any mobile surveillance trailer. • Pick the trailer location. • Level the unit with the drop-down levelers. • Deploy the mast. • Turn the power on. After a 2-minute start-up, the system will be recording and the live video will be accessible with smartphones and remote computers.


The Sentry Solar system includes an on-site NVR (network video recorder) which records and stores 4K video. The NVR is connected to a Mobile Hotspot which requires a wireless data service. Live viewing, video playback, and remote motion alerts are all provided by this Hotspot which is equipped with a data card from a national cellular provider. We provide monthly data service through T-Mobile. If you prefer to use another cellular provider, their service will work with the hotspot but we will be limited in our ability to help you complete setup and configuration.

User Access

The Sentry's video (live & recorded) can be accessed from anywhere you have cell service or access to the internet. Using your smartphone or PC, you can view live video from multiple cameras and perform multicamera video playback on demand. Multiple users can be granted access to the system. Each user is given their own login credentials and can be limited to selected cameras and what features they can use.

Video Storage

The Sentry Solar comes equipped to store 2 weeks of continuous 4K live video from all cameras. Total storage time can be expanded by adding more hard drive space. If you have a need for longer storage, give us a call and we’ll be glad to calculate the storage needed.

Managing the System

The Sentry Solar is equipped with our advanced Cyber Secure surveillance system. The system's advanced AI allows each camera to be programmed for special detection events that trigger custom alerts and responses all in real-time! Be proactive and monitor the system live or don’t worry about a thing and wait for a custom alert to let you know that your attention is needed. You decide how you want to use the system and we’ll program it to do just that.

Live Monitoring & Dispatch

When your application needs a live response, our video monitoring service is the solution. For less than $1 per hour, our 24-hour monitoring service provides real-time response to events on site. The Sentry communicates alarm conditions instantly to our monitoring center. Our operators respond live with warning messages, and sirens. If needed, they dispatch the local police or private security services, providing a visual description of the suspects and their location. This service offers the highest level of deterrence and response in the security industry.

Secure Onsite Equipment Storage

The Sentry Solar is the only trailer solution that offers secure storage of tools and equipment. The trailer offers 36sq feet of storage for things of value that you would like to leave on site. For a contractor, it’s a great solution for compressors and tools. For a maintenance department, they might store chains, locks, and other grounds equipment. For a Police Department, the storage is great for speed cones, signs, and other crowd control equipment.

Theft Deterrence

Besides being hard to hide, the Sentry Solar is hardened against theft. The trailer's tongue is equipped with an anti-theft lock, a wheel lock stops any movement of the trailer and the wide-angle cameras cover 360 degrees of the trailer's perimeter, sending human detection alerts to remote phones or our monitoring center for live immediate response. The unit is also equipped with a hidden GPS location device. If the trailer goes missing for any reason, we can locate the unit in minutes regardless of its location.

Warranty & Vandalism

All aspects of the Sentry Solar system are covered under our 5-year warranty. If any part fails due to a manufacturing defect during this period, we will replace the item.

Sentry Solar units are designed to be located where crime occurs. There is an elevated risk of vandalism in these areas. Warranties do not cover intentional damage or vandalism so it’s smart to cover your Sentry Mobile with our one-of-a-kind vandalism insurance. If the system is damaged for any reason, it’s our job to repair or replace the entire system. Ask one of our representatives about the details.
