Solar Surveillance Skid

A complete solar powered surveillance station, contained on one movable unit, providing an affordable source of power for your mobile surveillance needs.


Whether you need to keep an eye on some equipment or material on a changing job site, monitor a remote location for trespassers, or oversee a developing situation, the Solar Skid is a no-fuss, reliable solution.


We offer 2 types of solar skids depending on your needs, the micro skid and the regular sized skid (pictures listed below).

Designed from the ground up as the ultimate mobile security platform this revolutionary solution, the Solar Micro-Skid, packs all the punch of a larger, Solar Surveillance Trailer, at a fraction of the cost. Make no mistake, this rapid deploy system is every bit as reliable as the hundreds of Vorp Energy pole mount and mobile remote solar power systems operating across the United States and the rest of the world.


Built for years of heavy-duty service, using ruggedized electrical components, the Micro-Skid will keep your equipment online in any environment. The compact footprint makes for easier transportation and deployment while maintaining a surprising level of stability. Additionally, the Micro-Skid can be easily converted into towable, Solar Surveillance Trailer by mounting the entire unit to any capable utility trailer with just four bolts. Need to deploy multiple systems to a single site? Save time and resources by deploying Micro-Skids; 8 or more units can be loaded onto a utility trailer and deployed during a single trip!

The Micro-Skid Advantage

Cost-Effective Platform

The Solar Skid was designed to meet specific needs in the security industry very well, at a very reasonable price point. What it lacks in unnecessary bells and whistles it more than makes up for in rock solid construction and exceptional dependability.


Special pricing available for Security Integration Partners.

Mobile Solar Surveillance Skid

Built for Flexible Mobility

Transportation and storage are important considerations that are often overlooked when weighing different deployable surveillance options. The Micro-Skid platform is designed to fold neatly inside of its own footprint when not in use. This makes preparing the unit for long distance transportation or seasonal storage extremely easy!


Whether it is tucked out of the way waiting for its next deployment, riding in the back of a pickup, or being sent across the country the small footprint of the Micro-Skid makes it ideal for many applications.

Effective Multi-Unit Deployment

Most surveillance applications call for more than just one pole with cameras. With all the money that you saved by going with a skid instead of a needlessly costly security trailer, it isn’t hard to justify deploying multiple units on a single job. The additional coverage and flexibility gained by having more than one solar surveillance skid, is a no-brainer.


You will need to either arrange for lift equipment to be available onsite or rent it ahead of time, but depending on how many units are deployed, and how far away the jobsite is the savings in time and resources can be enormous. Deployments are a breeze with the Surveillance Skid platform.

Several Micro-Skid Rapid Deploy Solar Surveillance Skids can be Deployed in One Trip

Popular Applications

Construction Site Time-Lapse

Easily configure live HD video and time-lapse video to work side-by-side with cutting edge surveillance analytics. Deploy state-of-the-art surveillance technology to protect property.

Thermal Imaging Safety Systems

A thermal imaging “Early Warning System” can save tens of thousands of dollars and the lives of Gas & Oil workers. Intelligent thermal cameras pointed at well-heads are configured to trigger an alarm when temperatures rise past a specified threshold. This early warning is often enough, coupled with a quick reaction, to prevent an emergency.


Additional IP cameras can be connected to the same system to monitor safety conditions on-site and provide an added layer of security. The Micro-Skid platform makes deployment and re-location quick & simple. Get in touch with us and let our qualified team help you design a Gas & Oil safety and security system for your next site!

Prevent Theft and Vandalism

An “Active Deterrence System” helps stop crimes before they even happen. Motion activated lights, sirens, and a 2-way audio set-up show trespassers that they are on camera and that the immediate threat of capture is very real. Often this means moving onto a less protected location. Locking down your customer’s site couldn’t be easier than with a rapid deploy Micro-Skid, especially when that site is temporary and/or fluid!


Whether you have your own go-to camera and wireless equipment brands, or you need a little push in the right direction, our qualified sales team can find a solution for your next job. Get in touch today!
