Yup, seeing anything out there is better than having to get dressed and poke around with a flashlight.. I bought these specifically because they had the visible light floodlight, which can be handy if you're trying to do something and can't carry a flashlight while doing it, but I'm not finding I use it much... Maybe next year I'll get one with 20X zoom and ~300ft night vision, but this has already been a great help.I've got a really similar camera (Foscam) also from Amazon. This will be my 4th year with it, definitely saves lots of trips out. I ordered another one today to cover off another angle and give me better coverage in the dark. Only thing better than a camera is more cameras!
First nightshift at the bosses is tonight, just watching one starting to calve on his "fancy" cow cams. The infra-red is better and they move a little quicker but they all do much the same thing. If your pens aren't giant the Amazon ones are a great investment.
I looked at getting some high quality ones, but the prices were unjustifiable for an operation my size.. was going to be like $4000.
I just got a new wifi access point that really improves the reception, even my cell phone gets 3 bars of wifi at about 100 yards, the cameras are about that far away and with their better antennas they get 100% service
