Wireless Camera Security for Your Livestock Barn

The Cow Cam is a wireless security camera that Allen Leigh has adapted to fit numerous surveillance requirements around the barn and on the farm. Being able to monitor livestock at critical times like giving birth is an important application for the Cow Cam. But this surveillance equipment goes far beyond the original calving, foaling farrowing and lambing function that the Cow cam was developed for. Livestock Monitoring Systems can be used to check on sick animals, monitor tack rooms, and observe animals riding in the trailer you are pulling. These wireless cameras are specifically designed for barns and for all of the surveillance tasks that a barn requires. The Cow Cam transmits a clear video image to your television or laptop from as far away as a couple of miles. View your animals from the comfort of your home.

Allen Leigh originated the Cow Cam in 1996 and since then we have tested and developed new leading edge technology on the Livestock Monitoring System and upgrades are continually being researched and developed. We specialize in high quality, easy-installation surveillance equipment for the barn at affordable prices. Designed for farmers and ranchers these wireless security camera systems can help to ensure peace of mind and the safety of your livestock. The Cow Cam wireless camera system is specifically designed for barns. It can be used in wood or metal barns with no significant deterioration in image quality.

Livestock Monitoring System

The Livestock Monitoring System (Cow Cam) comes with a high quality 1/3” Sony CCD color camera with a lens of 3.6 mm, which offers approximately 90 degrees field of view – the best for this application. The camera has 24 Infrared Lights (great for low light conditions) and only requires about 0.5 lux to give you a great night time picture, it sees better than the human eye and offers unparalleled picture quality. The camera resolution of 650 TV lines is above the industry standard. The unit is encased in a durable weather resistant metal housing with four rubber gaskets to provide protection from the elements of high moisture or ammonia. The metal mounting bracket can be manually positioned left or right and up or down.

The Cow Cam Camera

The Livestock Monitoring System consists of the color camera, 30 feet of outdoor rated cable or longer if required (at additional price) which connects to the weather resistant transmitter box mounted on the outside of your calving / foaling barn. The signal has been successfully transmitted over 1.5 kilometers to the receiver which is located at your viewing location. (Additional receivers can be used to view from other houses on the yard) The receiver is hooked up to your TV with regular RCA cables (provided). With this receiver you are capable of watching up to seven locations, with each camera having its own transmitter. A remote control to change the unit you are watching on your receiver is now available. The three kilometers distance is possible with the optional High Gain receiver antenna; objects blocking the Line of Sight of the transmitter lessen the transmitting distance.

New Cow Cam Models Available

Allen Leigh has five models of the Cow Cam available: The PTZ 27x Sidemount, the PTZ 27x Top Mount, the 10x Mini Dome PTZ, The fixed 2.8mm/3.6mm Camera, and the 30x IP PTZ Dome camera.
