Not if you set it up as a repeater by the look of it.
No. It can be connected to the box but also works as a repeater by picking up the signal from the box and repeating it at a stronger level.
put in a little bag of silicon inside the camera housing - try and get a relatively fresh bag - often in shoe boxes - electronic goods boxes etc.
I used to have bother with the screen getting damp on the diet feeder,it had a large bag of silica gel in the housing,id fetch the bag inside and put it in the warming oven for the night,usually sorted it till drier weather.
I'm looking a getting a similar set up for calving.. Is 5 x zoom enough on your camera? or would it be better to pay a bit more and get 10 or 18?
5x is enough for calving. I can read tags with it. I see that the basic sricam 5x camera with no memory card slot can now be bought for 40 euro off eBay. I have just bought one for to put a second one in a shed.
Is all you need to set up one of those cameras is an old phone to tether the Internet connect to keep beside the camera and a 3 pin socket to power it?
A waterproof box is a good addition too.
Think I’m going to purchase :)
My building is some 100-120 metres away from our house with broadband router connection point. If I bought one of these Sricam cameras, am I right in thinking I'd need to install two nanostations or something like this to form a wifi bridge link between shed and house to receive a satisfactory connection?
Yes you need a bridge,mine is about 60m in a clear line of sight and works spot on.
