Need to update this thread too! The cameras work AWESOME. I would totally recommend them to anyone who has a little bit of patience with the set up and internet access in their barn. Set up is fairly easy, and google has tutorials for almost every type of modem/router ever. You don't really need any computer smarts when you can follow photo walk-throughs.
As it turns out, 99% of the troubles I had are completely limited to BS from my internet service provider, which is a local company limited to a 10-20 mile radius of our city. They refused to give me access to the modem in order to forward the ports. Forwarding the ports is what makes the cameras visible on the internet. They all work perfectly on the intranet of my home network all the time though.
Having the cameras made for easy foal watch (for the first foal of this year anyway). I simply had to get up every hour and roll over to look at a screen rather than hustle out through the cold in my PJ's. I elected not to post the cameras live on my website. It initially seemed like a great idea, but I just felt too creepy not knowing who might be watching. If I can figure out how to do a restricted page where a viewer would have to be some sort of "member" and provide information to verify the person viewing is a real person, I may revisit that in the future. I did give viewing access to some of my friends, and have not had any complaints as to video quality.
Now for some still photos of the cameras
Semi-night vision. Taken with half the barn lights off for the night
Same stall, different camera. Here you can kind of see the difference between a brown horse & sorrel, the hay looks a little green & the navy blankets look blue.
Same camera as the photo directly above, with all barn lights on. I have turned it to view the alley. You can see my horrible cluttered mess, but it is a better view of the color. This is also a view using the internet viewer website (hence the deletions of the camera's address) on my work computer rather than at home on the intranet on my iphone/ipod. You can see from this view that the camera's really prefer fluorescent bulbs in the alley to the 150watt incandescent stall lights. In reality to my eye, the stalls have more natural lighting than the alley.
