German Envaris offers security protection for solar systems
Oct 9, 2013 - German solar company Envaris GmbH said on Monday it had started offering security protection services against theft of solar systems by retrofitting the labels of the solar panels with quick response (QR) codes.
The QR codes on the labels can be scanned with any smartphone and in case of a theft can give information for the ownership of the stolen components and the respective park where they belong.
Envaris has created an online database where the codes and labels based on the serial number of the products can be registered. The labels are protected against removal by a safety feature leaving a hard to remove mark.
In addition, the company will provide installation of alarm systems for solar parks which are particularly vulnerable to theft.
Envaris is based in Berlin and provides maintenance, operating, repair and inspection services for photovoltaic systems.
