Their enclosure is inside the barn. They used to sleep in barn and free range outside in the pasture but then I lost most of my flock so am making a day enclosure inside near their sleeping stall. I bought a long range wireless access point but then support techs for Amcrest said this camera is not an IP camera and that it can only get the signal from the monitor that is attached to the router and not the long range access point. I think a high gain antenna would work if it was ran to the outside of the metal building but I can't find anyone that knows if it would work or what I need to make it work. I am not sure why this camera is not an IP camera. And if I trade this one for an IP camera, then it could access the Engenius long range access point. I think! lol This is really hard when you have a metal barn.
