    Hello,
    Is anyone using a camera to remotely monitor their pond over the Internet? I've been doing a little research. It would require an outdoor model, wireless reception, and the capability to forward the ports so that it can be viewed over the Interenet remotely. I am looking for a way to monitor my pond while I am away to make sure mainly that the waterfall is functioning.

    I have been looking at a couple of those on tiger direct online .I also looked at one at harbor freight it was a security camera with everything included .I may go with the one for just my home use as it can be used for security purposes too .I really want to start cheap and just try it out first and then maybe go bigger set up .I do not travel much right now and I am not planning to in the near future ,So figured it would be best to go with easy setup and try it out .Just like ponds start small go bigger lol

    I have one on the property to monitor for guests ( intruders) while away. Check out D-Link.

    Wireless link to your internet, live monitor from anywhere you have internet. Can send you an email when there is motion detected and record video for short duration upon activation by motion as well as weatherproof. Not sure how to set it for lack of motion but you can set motion sensitivity as well as area to scan.
    Set it up to drop a flag or stick when the water flow shuts off and it can email you a warning.

    I got a ring doorbell and it would be perfect for pond viewing. I may get one for that. They have a solar version

    I have 8 camera wireless system, watching over my 2 and half acres. Mostly in front of my chickens and behind them. I also can watch the monitor live or on my phone live or be notified of movement or watch any past videos I ask it to play. I do have 2 small shots of my private road and of course my doors and windows. Notifications get a bit much when the wind is blowing. All our plants set it off....LOL

    AS you can see in my photo I have to move 1 of them for they are near metal buildings. security.jpg

    I love it.
