A photovoltaic solar battery has an almost unlimited service life (for 25-30 years, their production decreases by 10-20%). It does not make noise, does not require fuel, does not smell, there is no need to carry canisters, change the oil and build a separate (preferably fireproof) room with soundproof walls, exhaust ventilation and an exhaust pipe.
If you have a solar power system, then you listen to the birds and watch the children playing in the garden and do not inhale CO 2 . But the main thing is electricity around the clock, and not only when the generator starts up at 10 attempts, and rattles to the "joy" of you and your neighbors. You always have a screwdriver, phone, camera, etc. charged. Is it logical to reduce the resource of a powerful generator for the sake of generating several watts?
The undoubted plus of the round-the-clock power supply is the ability to install an alarm. There are many options. From the simplest car alarm to an intelligent home with a video recorder, GSM - module, video on-line, and other "bells and whistles". If you have a house, a temporary house, a bathhouse made of a bar, then it is enough to install a car alarm with a seismic sensor (shock sensor). These are the simplest, cheapest and most sufficient options, since wooden houses conduct low-frequency vibrations very well. It is not for nothing that the best acoustic systems (speakers) are wooden. In the event of a hacking attempt, it will surely work, and if it does not arrest it, it will certainly produce a psychological effect on the intruder (Who knows, maybe the whole “aul” will now run away, or the neighbor with the “bazooka” will wake up?). The same can be said about a log house, it is not much inferior to a bar. For brick and stone houses, a car alarm with a volume sensor is more suitable, they are not much more expensive, by 15-20%. And your property is guarded "at the very least". One solar battery with a capacity of 80-100 W provides the necessary lighting, the operation of a small TV, a water pump, a trimmer. Any student at school can handle installation and connection. In solar panels there is no "mechanics" (in fact, there is nothing to break), tempered, textured glass, which does not reflect rays, allows you to collect more by 15% of scattered radiation, and withstands any hail and wind. It is often said: - "In winter there is almost no sun." I agree, almost not, but:
Now a little about the cons
- Intel is reportedly looking to sell a majority stake in an augmented reality spinoff company with plans to potentially launch consumer smart glasses
- Previous launches were unsuccessful due to technical and fuel problems. A US Space Force payload Astra carrier rocket reaches orbit for the first time
