Talk to me about stall cameras

I'm not suspicious of shady activity or anything. I just think it would be neat.

Are there stall cams available that can connect to 3G/4G? There's no Internet where I board but it would be neat to be able to log in from my phone or computer and check on him.

I have never heard of one, neither has a google search.

I am sure it is possible to add something to a Stall Camera System, but the Price would not be pretty

Maybe a Security Company could give you some advice or an idea what the ramifications would be.

I've found that it works well for foal watch. To hook it up to the computer I need to put in a signal booster for my wireless internet signal. It isn't all that expensive, you can get the stuff you need at Best Buy.

To do things over a large distance, you might need to look into something like Marestare or one of those services.

True, if you are close to the camera to receive the signal, but how are you going to hook it up to a 3G or 4G cell signal?

I don't know about hooking to a cell phone. If you can get the signal on the internet, you can use your cell to go on the net and look in on them. Otherwise you can monitor them from any computer. I'm being deliberately vague about this because I've looked into getting my foaling cams on the net but never looked into directly hooking in to a cell phone signal. LOL! Now that I don't commute anymore, I got rid of my cell phone and don't miss it, so I really have no idea how that would work.

I know a lady that has stall cameras all over her property. She's the paranoid sort, and it gives her a little piece of mind. She also looks through the footage from them and takes pictures of her horses from it, so that's pretty cool! I even see some that she posts from time to time of her riding, lol.

I don't know about stall cams, but I know there are hunting trail cams that upload to a satalite & people can log in their cam from anywhere. There is a fee for this of course. I would think that there should be something like that for stall cams.

Cowgirl up!

Why do you want to use cell service over a wireless signal? Is there a specific reason?

It wouldn't connect to a cell phone, just the data network. Tablets and many other devices connect on 3G/4G networks.

Wireless because there's not Internet at the barn. So if I went wired, I'd have to literally have the barn rigged up to have Internet to have a network to connect the camera to.

It doesn't have to be a "stall cam" but just a camera that uploads to the Internet wirelessly will work.

No sinister reasons for it. I just think it would be neat to peek in on horsie.

Do you know brand names or anything? That work work - just put it in a stall instead of outside!
