Cool Technology of the Week

Generally I write about a cool technology that I have personally tried. This week, I'm looking for advice.

With 12 chickens and 24 guinea hens in our coop, we're looking for a hen cam to keep an eye on our flock.

At  hencam.com they use high end Toshiba IK-WB15A network cameras hardwired to an ethernet connection and uploaded to a web server.

Our coop has power but is about 100 feet away from our WiFi hotspot (and a hardwired connection would be challenging). A wireless IP camera that is web accessible would be ideal.

Does anyone have experience with products from Foscam or Lorex?

A simple, outdoor wireless camera with reasonable resolution and remote web accessibility will do the trick!

I look forward to your comments about the cool wireless cameras you've implemented.
