Hey, Mare Stare and foaling camera folks--any tips on mounting camera?
I'm foaling out my farrier's mare at my place and it's getting to be time to mount my trusty, dusty Radio Shack wireless camera, which is TEN years old and has been used only as a foal-cam. Dredged it up out of a trunk yesterday and it still works like a charm, even 600 feet away from the receiver up at the house!
Last time I had it mounted using a VERY badly jerry-rigged apparatus consisting mostly of duct tape and little bungee cords. It was serviceable, but prone to wobbling and getting off-kilter in a strong breeze.
How do you all mount your surveillance cameras--any tips? Mine has to have "line of sight" to the house, which as I said is 600 feet away, so it sort of needs to sit in the doorway of the foaling stall, hanging down a little way. Love to hear any bright ideas from veteran camera people. Thanks.
Mine is on top of a 2x4 that I nailed vertically to the top of the stall wall. It sits abot 2 feet higher than the wall, so the mares can't reach the camera. I swear they know it's there and I am watching lol.
