How is Dryad's Silvanet system powered?

We use solar panels in each and every one of our products. The solar panels charge built-in supercapacitors during the day to have enough energy to operate throughout the night, ensuring 24/7 protection and wildfire detection.

Our use of supercapacitors instead of lithium-ion batteries means our Silvanet system can operate maintenance-free for 10-15 years and avoids some of the problems inherent with lithium-ion devices, such as their proneness to self-combustion and toxic materials that can leach out of them.

The Silvanet Border Gateway can be powered by a solar panel or by power-over-ethernet (PoE).
