Our camera rotates too. We can check from my phone, iPad, computer, etc... but we’d like some stationary ones for our back shed. We had two calves born in there last night, that’s where we keep the ones whom are close but not bagging or springing.

Sometimes it gets a little frustrating when someone else jumps on and checks as you’re checking. If you see the camera moving, don’t move it too! Only real downfall to its accessibility.

It is a 27x PTZ camera, it operates with a joystick. They are wireless cameras, but are wired to the antennae which is attached to the outside of the barn. My cameras are not IP cameras. We don't have the internet connection for that. My cameras just connect to a tv or computer monitor.

What is the distance from TV to barn?
Edit: I just looked at your link. Ouch. Probably more than my small herd can afford, but I really, really like it.
The link does not say how far it works (wireless).

It sure looks like a great system, and I think I might buy one but I'm pretty sure I'm too far from the barn, about 1.25 miles, with a hill in between.

Our barn is 500 + feet from the house. I know it will transmit further than that. Also, they have booster antenna that will boost transmission distance. A hill might cause problems, unless you can mount the antenna higher than the hill.

Keep in mind, that these cameras are in CDN $$

Yes, it says it will go a couple of miles. That's amazing. Might have to "earmark" a heifer sale for that one.
I'll show my ignorance, how much is $3000 your money converted to US?

Some information that might help. I recently attended a calving workshop put on by the Alabama Cooperative Extension System. It was conducted by Soren Rodning DVM, Auburn University.
The ACES has a online presentation by Dr Rodning, a lot of good information.
I think you can copy and paste this address:

Hope this helps
