Wireless Video Cameras Finally Working

The reason we picked BORR as our field site was because they have a tower system that spreads wireless internet over most of the property. Our goal is to monitor snake activity in real-time (via the internet) so that we can record squirrel interactions when they actually occur as opposed to reviewing hours of recordings at a later date. Unfortunately, the wireless did not reach the part of the reserve where we found all of our snakes. Luckily, we were able to set up another tower that transmits the wireless signal to our site. This week we finally started to use our wireless security cameras in the field. Check out this awesome use of technology below.

Camera set up in the field. All the camera equipment is stored in a backpack in a large black trash bag next to the tripod (to protect it all from the elements).

  1. You benefited certain focuses there. I did an inquiry on the subject and discovered about all persons will concur with your online journal.

  2. I am surprised to know that with the help of this camera you can monitor snake activity in real-time via the internet. These Wireless Video Cameras are just fantastic. One of my fast friends also needed a high-quality video camera, I recommended him What Camcorders, now he is enjoying his camera like me a lot.
