So, you need to monitor your barn from the house?
Well, we can help! Don't hesitate to call us at 1-888-724-1641 with your questions.
|To the left you see a picture that tries to
represent the usual setup for monitoring a bard from your house. This
picture shows a four camera setup. It consists of four cameras, a quad
processor, a wireless transmitter that sends tot he images from the four
camera to the wireless receiver located in the house.
The concept is pretty simple. You mount the cameras where you want them. Run cables from the cameras to the quad processor.
The quad processor takes all four mages and turns them into one picture. Each camera will show up as one corner of the mixed picture.
Now that you have all four camera mixed into one video source you can take that video source and run it into a wireless video transmitter. The transmitter is placed next to a window in the barn if the barn is made of metal or has aluminum siding, if it's not them you can place it any ware because the video signal will go through just about anything except metal.
Now that the signal is being transmitted from the barn you simply hook
up the the wireless receiver which is located in your house. You may need
to place the receiver in a widow if you have aluminum siding on your
house. If not then you can place the receiver anywhere because again the
signal from the transmitter has no problem going through most surfaces
that are not metallic.

cost effective solution for you situation.
Question: What's a Quad Processor?
Answer: Well, click here to read all about them.
In short it's a device that lets you watch more then one camera on your TV screen at the same time.
Question: It's pretty dark in the barn at night. What camera should I use?
Answer: We suggest Infrared cameras because while the stall may look pith black to you (And the animals) Infrared camera can see in total darkness. So, if the lights are out you still get to see what's going on through your TV.

Hooking it all up:
First mount your cameras to the walls in the stalls over your horse. Hook one cable to each camera and run it to the central location (Usually next to the window and power outlet. Connect the four cables to the Video Inputs on the Quad Processor. Connect the video output from the quad processor to the video input on the transmitter. Mount the transmitter someplace where it will have line of sight with the house and where it won't get wet. Remember the wireless video signal will not go through metal so either mount it outside of the barn or where it can see through a window. The signal will go through glass and wood with no problem.
Plug in the power supplies. The power supply with four outputs goes to the four cables that run to the cameras. The power supply with a single output goes to the transmitter. Plug in the quad processor power supply. Now everything in the barn in hooked up and powered up.
Go to the house. Plug in the receiver power supply and connect it to the receiver. Connect the receiver video output to your TV or VCR's video input. You should see the cameras on you TV. If you connected the receiver to your VCR then you should be able to record the video as well as watch it at the same time on your TV.
