We know most of you do your
shopping then come back. We've broken down us against 2 of our primary
competitors (searched keyword: barn cameras). We're not listing their
names, it's not good business, if you've done your homework, you'll know
Riverwind Surveillance Supply was the first to offer
wireless camera systems specifically designed to be used as Barn Cameras.
We do not sell bundled transmitter cameras commonly called wood barn
cameras by competitors. We have found they are not worth the money
because distances are greatly reduced and the non weatherproof cameras
don't hold up to damp dusty barns (we could sell them, we did for a
limited time, but we were not pleased so we choose not to). Over a decade
ago, we were the first to design and market systems what competitors call
metal barn cameras. We believe the performance, durability, and longevity
make them the only real choice to be used in barns whether they be wood or
metal sided. We've listed their wood barn prices anyway so you can get an
idea how little more a truly effective system will cost. As you will find
below, because our prices are so competitive we are able to offer 1000'
systems for less than they sell systems providing half the coverage. Why
sell something most people are going to be unhappy with? Remember
transmitters are rated on line of sight, not real world working
Distances listed are line of sight ratings. For a
further explanation of how this translates into the real world visit our
Wireless Barn Camera page.
Prices gathered from their websites on 500' 1000'

Riverwind's long range system uses a 15 mile line of
sight FCC part 90 transmitter (the most power allowed for public
use). Realistic working conditions are under 3000 feet..
A's website says 1 mile, They do not list a part 90 tx unit on
their specs page nor any expected real world ranges for anything.
B's long range system is a short range transmitter (700') with a
high gain receiver antenna. They list the distance at 1500'.
B's IR camera prices are their standard camera with an optional
IR light they sell factored into the price.
