About the System

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.  It can be purchased as a single camera unit and eaisly upgraded to multiple cameras at anytime or start with Multiple Cameras.

With the addtion of our HD Network System, we want customers to understand the differences between this Traditional System which operates on a pair of wireless transmitters that broadcast the camera(s) in D1 resolution.  It will not be as clear or high detail as the Network System which operates in 720p or 1080p.  It is still a very effective and easy to install system that requires no Internet.  Here is a video link that will show you this system (D1) compared to the same camera operating Hard Wired or on a Network System.

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 accurate.

About The Camera

Riverwind's cameras are choosen and adapted to funtion with our wireless equipment in the toughest 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.  Following the one year warranty, replacement equipment is supplied at cost.  All cameras used in this traditional wireless system are HD cameras operating in analog mode.  This means the cameas will be available when wireless video technology catches up with the HD world.  At the present there is no cost effective HD video transmitters/receiver.  For HD solutions, view our HD network systems.  They feed to your router much like this system feeds to your TV.  Viewing would take place on computers and smart phones. 

Our standard camera has a 3.6 mm lens 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.

Power and Cable

The system ships standard with 60 feet of cable (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 if needed.

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.  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.
