Solar panel cameras
« on: March 02, 2021, 06:08:03 am »
Hi
Could anyone recommend any decent solar powered cctv cameras
We don't have mains electric to our field and thinking of investing in one
Our field is 5 mins drive from home so ideally to be used at night time during lambing

What about a 12v camera? We have a farmstream camera, they do a 12v cable to hook up to a leisure battery.

Well worth investigating- our camera saved the first calf that was born after installing, and saved me walking down to the shed every night to check sheep/cows. The farmstream support has been good too.

I use Arlo Go cameras in my field. They have rechargeable batteries and also a solar panel that you can buy. They use a sim card like a phone so can be used anywhere as long as there is a phone signal. Vodafone do a V sim for 5 and then it's 4 a month. There's an similar one called l Reolink but I don't know anything about that one. Hope this helps.

thanks that was going to bring me on to my next question on how the data comes back to my phone, whether it was a Tether or 4G simcard that needed to be used on a contract

thanks for the reply
