The following is the standard
wireless barn camera system that we have sold for almost 20 years
with modernized equipment added along the way. It's simple to
install as every connection is completely color coded and everything
is included but the TV. It will connect to your TV and/or a
DVR in your home. It can be purchased as a single camera unit
and eaisly upgraded to multiple cameras at anytime.
About the Transmitter / Receiver (distances)
Our 2.4 Ghz transmitter receiver kits have
two signal strength ratings. 1000 feet line of sight (standard) and
2000 feet plus (Extended Upgrade) We recommend keeping distances
under 500 feet (Standard) and 2000 to 3000 feet (Extended). Both
are weatherproof although most people place the receiver inside the
home near the TV or DVR. If you have a brick home, you may need to
place the receiver in a windowsill or outside your home. The
receiver typically is placed outside on the barn to avoid metal barn
walls. If your distance is past 3000 feet and you have line of
sight, give us a call and we'll discuss your options. Our 2.4
kits are digital so they don't get the interference associated with
wireless video in the past.
If you're unsure of your distance, we
recommend visiting and downloading Google earth. The program is free
and contains a button on the toolbar which will allow you to measure
from your house to your barn off of the satellite image. It is very

enviornments. From the extreme heat of the southwest to the
frigid northern states, Riverwind has been placing cameras in
barns for 20 years. We bulk buy only the best cameras and if
something happens, advance replacement is provided.

that provides a 90 degree field of view. Vari-focal 2.8 to 12mm
lens are available. Cameras are all color infrared allowing you to
view in a variety of lighting conditions.

(camera inside to transmitter outside). This may be increased up to 100
feet for $10. Additional lengths can be achieved, give us a
call. The 12 volt DC system is operated off two small
AC adapters into a normal 110 outlet (similar to cell phone
charger). The power may be provided on the camera end of the
50 foot cable or the transmitter end, you do not need electric on
both ends.. The directions indicate how to change to power location
Viewing on your Smartphone and Computer
Our Wireless Barn Camera System connects to
your TV provideing constant live video. You may stream this
same video to your smartphone, tablet or PC by adding a DVR.
The DVR is placed in the house connected to one of the receiver's
two outputs. The DVR is then physically connected to your
Router with network/Ethernet cable. The system will not work
off Aircards or Hotspots although a system that will function with
these devices is in the future so check back. This will be
deleted when that is possible. Some satalite providers block a
process needed to stream the video when away from home. If you
have satalite, please call. Riverwind includes remote in setup
with the DVR. We remote into your PC while you watch and set
the equipment and router settings up. When we hang up, you
will be watching it on your phone. Riverwind also offers high
defenition home network systems. These systems are competely
independant from the system listed on this page. For more
