    I am interested in installing a camera with feed to my phone and computer so I can verify the automatic door has opened and closed each day. I am not a tech person and have no idea what I need. I have electricity at the barn. I don't think a game camera will work. I don't need to take a picture, I need surveillance.

    Smartcam feeds and motion sensor alerts to our phone by samsung. The one rated for outdoors.

    Can also record and watch live.

    Best buy.
    Wifi and electricity is all you need unless your camera is really far from your system, then you'll add a wifi extender.

    The camera has a long cord 50ft,that goes to the power box. So we have the power box plugged into the barn, and then the camera runs from the barn to the coop. We did need a range extender since our barn is 75 yards from the house.
