Remote viewer Rapid Sight Kit (RS)
A portable system for short and long-term monitoring
Remote Viewer Rapid-Sight kit is a fully functional portable environmental monitoring system that has been designed to make moving it from site to site easier than ever. The kit components can be disconnected from one another to make transportation hassle free, and it contains everything you need to get setup remotely and start transmitting regular images back to you and your team, 24/7. Although the Rapid-Sight model can be used for permanent applications, it is also highly suited to serve short-term operational needs. This is because it is easy to transport, and quick to assemble and disassemble ready for its next use. Typically such applications are season or incident related, e.g., Remote Viewer Rapid-Sight satellite camera systems may be set up for a week, a month, a season, or longer.
Rapid-sight system components (satellite camera, two-way satellite transceiver, mounting brackets, secure protective panel box, Ethernet switch upgrade, cable critter protection, and camera quick connect kit) are separate items for easy transportation (e.g., not hardwired together). The Ethernet switch allows installers rapid and easy setup by plugging into local laptop to view the live feed of the satellite camera real time for camera view adjustments.
Other complementary items include the Platt Shipping Box 1018HWF (600-050-1001), Remote Viewer Solar Panel 20 (850-110-1006), Deluxe Aluminum Tripod (820-101-1012), and RV Illuminator (170-040-1009).
Ideal applications for the Rapid-Sight kit include the following:
- Wildfire—modified response and prescribed burns
- Dams—monitor during flood risk months
- Avalanche—monitor during high risk season
- Natural disasters—check for breaches before sending in emergency response teams
