Has anyone installed a security cameara in their loft? If so what kind did you use and how much does one need to spend to get a good one.
My loft is about 100 yards from the house so it needs to be wireless as well.
Thanks.

I have cams in my loft
but mine are wired
im not a huge fan of wireless as it is less reliable than being hard wired
you can check out www.harborfreight.com
the cameras are pretty cheap

I am hoping to do camera's inside my loft. They will be wireless webcams, but they will be for security as well as just viewing my birds. Check amazon.com. The reviews on there are really good for helping you decide what to get. Check out "home security".

I have wireless cams with built-in infrared and sounds in it...Works well...Cost me under a buck for two cams $100...Looks like a spy-cam for RC toys...
What?? And you're not going to tell us which brand and type or where to get them?

I have a baby monitor in my loft. If I hear my birds getting restless, I go check it out. Wish I had thought of this during the "season of the weasel" a few yrs. back when I lost so many birds.

I have Web cam conected to the old notebook in the loft with wireless card and VNC software.
I have also color infrared camera + 5 b/w cameras waiting to be installed (needs wires).
Best is to get equipment from security company who does installations. They often replace old working equipment with new models and you can get it for free or close to nothing.:)

I picked up some on sale at radio shack about a year ago. Cost me about $85.00 for two wireless color cameras with sound and decent infra red night vision. Great quality video too. Never saw them after that tho .. Nexxtech brand, maybe a search will find some.

CCTV. If you are 100 yards away wireless will work. I agree the hard wired systems I like better. They only use phone cable. My system is Infrared for at night and lights are not needed. And it is color video durring the day. I also purchased a low voltage pan/tilt system. E-bay sales them and smarter home. This is very nice as you can then move the camera and pick up everything in the room. The system also has a intercomm in it. I like it as I can hear if something is wrong in the loft or barn. Another thing that is nice. I can pan/tilt by the push of a button. Or I can set it to automatic and it pans by it's self. You can get systems from one cam to 16 or more. Costco even sales them. My system is 800 yards away. I use it for the horses and loft. You can also get a system that records video. And a system that only records if it see's movement. Nice for like down the center walk way of a barn. My system also hooks to the TV. I don't have to go to the barn and check on a mare who is about to foal. Horses will also stop foaling if you are present. But once a leg is sticking out. It aint going back in. Jim
