    mobile remote security cameras

    To monitor machinery whilst away from home during drilling and harvest. We are looking for a tractor, combine or telehandler mountable system as they don't spend every night in the same yard or building. I guess a system needs to collect images and email the image and its location out when it is triggered.

    Suggestions please, is anyone using a similar system, what is it, and does it work?

    You need to make sure you get one of the new style ones - the old ones a) leaked water and b) used MMS to send the images. MMS is fine in the states where it is free, but in this country it is very expensive.

    They are now doing a GPRS version, which sends the pictures via email, and they end up costing about 1/2 pence per image.

    It varies massively depending on how many pictures the camera is taking, how strong the mobile phone signal and how cold the weather is - somewhere between 6 weeks and 6 months - I have one that has been out since June and it is still going

    Cheers Sleepy I was thinking of you as I posted the question!

    Do you think it would work from behind glass? i.e. locked inside a tractor cab looking down the steps?

    Almost want two cameras and movement sensors linked to one phone?

    I would put the camera in the top of the cab, looking out the front window and at the doors

    That way.. if someone breaks into the tractor, you get a good snap of them and you are less likely to have the cameras nicked.


    You would also get very few false detections

    I wouldn't want to subject a dog, not even a black dog! to the torrent of abuse, and new (to me) vocabulary I learn't the other evening

    There was a trooper got stuck the other night near here, it had the roof cut out and an IBC dropped in. Wonder what they were doing

    They couldn't retrieve it so torched it in the field.
