Nestbox type camera with WiFi for live access


Well-known Member
Hi All, my Mrs is after a live video footage accessible camera to go inside a rabbit shed we have, to see what the little lovelies are up to when inside, especially at night/in winter.

It therefore needs to be WiFi based and, as there is no mains power anywhere near there, also battery powered.

Having not done anything like this before, budget is questionable as we dont know how often it would be used, or whether its just a passing like to know and then never to be accessed again.

This kind of thing seems to fit the bill, but even the cheapest listed battery pack means it turns out quite expensive overall, over £155 for the basic setup (+£27 for 1080p, +£20 for a much larger battery pack means could be £200).

What sort of alternatives are there that might fit the requirements, but perhaps not cost quite so much?

Many thanks in advance.

A Wi-Fi based outdoor security camera may suit.

You could try something like this which is £85 at the moment. It includes a solar panel for topping up the battery and has SD card slot for local recording but I suspect that you will need to swap out the batteries if you are viewing remotely frequently.
