The Best Wireless Barn Cameras
Over the years we have tested a number of different wireless barn cameras. We realized they did not work very well. Most wireless barn camera use indoor antennas or they depend on a Wi-Fi connection from the house to the barn. These types of systems are not meant to transmit farther than about 300ft. They also ended up having too much interference when trying to transmit through walls out to the barn. If the house was brick and the barn was metal most wireless barn cameras would not even transmit short distances.
So we decided to design our own system using outdoor long range wireless antennas. Our cameras have resolutions 2X better than 1080p HD. We have many camera options. If you don’t see a particular camera or product here on our website just send us a message by clicking here Message Us. Most likely we will have it because we also install security camera systems for home and business. We have different packages available on our shop page but we can also customize a system for you.

Why We Designed a Better Wireless Barn Camera System
Our Wireless Antennas
Wireless technology is great when it works. BUT as we all know when it doesn’t work it can be very frustrating. Wireless is prone to interference from other devices either inside or outside the home. When cameras suffer from interference problems they will lose signal or video. Over the years we have tested many different wireless camera systems. Most wireless barn camera use indoor antennas or they depend on a Wi-Fi connection from the house to the barn. These types of systems are not meant to transmit farther than about 300ft. They also ended up having too much interference when trying to transmit through walls out to the barn. If the house was brick and the barn was metal most wireless barn cameras would not even transmit short distances. So, we decided to redesign and build a new wireless barn camera system from the ground up. Since 2.4Ghz is heavily used, we use outdoor wireless antennas in the 5Ghz range to minimize interference. These long range antennas can transmit reliably over several kilometres. With our systems you can ink several buildings and barns together. This means you can monitor cameras across multiple barns. You can also share the internet and the monitoring of cameras across different homes with our wireless system as well.
Our Wireless Barn Cameras
Our cameras are not really wireless. We feel wired is always best. So the only part of our system that is wireless is the antenna link between the house and the barn. Everything else is wired. With the different systems that we tested over the years we noticed that the cameras were not very good. In many cases the wireless barn cameras were only indoor rated and not meant to handle moisture or cold weather. If the house was more than 100ft away or if the walls of the barn were metal then the cameras would have signal issues. The barn cameras we now use are fully outdoor rated and they have very good night vision. The barn cameras also have better than 1080p HD resolutions. We have different models to choose from that can cover a 10X10 horse stall right up to a larger 50X50 calving pen. We even have pan tilt zoom cameras that allow you to move around and view very large areas with one camera. Our barn cameras are expandable so you can easily add multiple cameras to your setup to cover larger areas.
Update: All of our standard barn cameras come with a built in microphone for listening in on the barn. We have tested them and the quality is quite good. Upgraded zoom cameras and the Pan Tilt zoom cameras have an option where you can add an external microphone. You can then install the MIC anywhere in the barn and then connect it back to the camera. This allows you to position the MIC in the best spot for picking up audio. The camera may be installed on a wall whereas you can position the MIC right over top of the pen or stalls. Now from your phone, tablet, laptop or TV you can listen in while you are viewing your cameras.
Pan Tilt Zoom Cameras
Are you looking for the ultimate wireless barn camera that can do it all. Our PTZ infrared night vision barn cameras are amazing. They have 360 degrees of viewing. You can zoom in over 100ft away in complete darkness and see clearly with its specialize infrared lighting. It has multiple LED’s that can illuminate a wide area or intensify to illuminate areas farther away as you zoom in. The image resolution is 1080p HD so the quality is incredible especially when viewed on a larger monitor. The best part is that you can view and control the camera from your smart phone, tablet or laptop even while you are away.
Our main PTZ camera has 25x zoom. We do have a ones with lower and higher zoom ratings. We can fit your budget for a system that will allow you to keep a good eye all around your property and barn.
