    I've been really happy with the quality of the product and service (ordering, questions, etc).

    Do you specifically want wireless?

    If not, wired is a better way to go in terms of clarity. If I went wireless, I'd have gone with them, but wired is nearly crystal clear.

    Yup, wireless does lack clarity. However you can see enough to know what is going on. MY barn is a good 300 feet from the house and while the wireless is not clear it has been sufficient to get me to the barn when I needed to.

    Ww have their wireless outfit - it was GREAT until we went to satellite internet - now the router interferes a bit with the signal, but since it's mainly used at night, we took to just cutting the power to the router at bedtime

    Great customer service, and good equipment.

    Also keep in mind that if you use a service (like marestare in my case) that will degrade the quality even further. So if you're watching remote on your phone and you want the clearest picture possible, start with the clearest system available.

    You can get looooong cables. Ours is 300 feet long rated for outdoor.

    Cool Hmmm

    Anyone have experience with the wired system for 1000 ft or a little more/less?

    I purchased two cameras from them. Cameras and service is are great. Had a problem with a bad transmitter and they sent me a whole new unit.
    Excellent!
    I have wireless and the picture is quite good from barn to computer. I have issues with the picture that comes through on marestare only.

    the trick is going to be getting a solid line that long. Probably special order. Each time you splice lines together with connectors, it reduces the picture quality. Solid wires are best. So considering you have few if any connectors in the wire, quality should be just as good as a a 300 ft system.

    Smile Thanks BitS.....

    I'll do that. The area between the house and the barn tends to be a bit low and can get wet if we have a few long rains, so that is another reason to get the solid, long wire. Now to talk with them to see what is the longest wire they have.
