    Anybody have a 24/7 chicken cam in their coop that you can access in your house/online? I think I want one... tell me about it.

    Would they work in a small (4x4x4), unheated coop in winter?

    Should, one of mine is in a brooder that is just lightly heated. The cam puts off a little heat. My incubator that those other cameras are in is only 3 feet by 1.5 feet so you figure from that how wide of an angle the view is. You just have to keep them relatively dry. They also sell heated weather proof cases for security cams.

    Only issue with the cam I linked to is waiting on shipping from Hong Kong.

    Thanks for the info [​IMG]

    I'm wondering what the range might be, or is that a function of my modem/router set-up?
    Is it very difficult to figure out how to conntect to a wireless laptop? I'm not technologically "advantaged".
    Night vision is a nice option I'd sure like to check on the coop at night.

    Thanks in advance
