    I use Reolink cameras. There are several models to choose from. Many can be connected via WiFi or LAN, though some are only one or the other. Most of them have a micro SD card slot for recording or you can get an NVR (network video recorder) to record and playback footage from several cameras (optional). You can view them over your phone, tablet, computer or, with the NVR, on your TV. All of mine do infrared during low-light conditions. Many capture sound as well and some even have a speaker so you can talk to the chickens (which, btw, really freaks them out :lau).

    I have another post on this thread recommending a specific game camera. The price last check has gone up significantly. I am thinking about buying another one. I did a little research and this one while quite inexpensive, a decent camera. I haven't bought one yet. I had two cameras that failed. One I fixed and the other one miraculously started working again. My husband did give it a good wack with the yard vac he tows behind the mover. The bracket partially broke and the hinges broke off. I am able to shut the camera fairly tight with a wire. If anyone does buy this camera or any other camera, please post both daytime and nighttime pictures if you can. I use my cameras mostly at night because that is when the predators seem to come out here.
