I use Q-See 8 camera setup with DVR. I can watch the ponds and yard from the cell phones or laptop. My system is wired as the ponds are too far from the house for wireless. 1 Aquascape underwater camera and one Speco Tech bullet underwater camera- both discontinued. It's a shame cause I'm sure that at some point they will go bad but so far both are doing great.

My overall viewing is q-see. Also wired, the ponds to far down the slope for a wireless to work. We have just put in a wifi extender, need to see if a wireless system will work.

I have a new underwater cam to try, still have not gotten around to reading the set up (to make it work with my dvr) so I can try it out. Will get to it soon.............I hope

If it works will let you know.

Actually yes, I bought ones like mrsclem was using they are working great. The one I mentioned above is still in a box. On my list to do.
I need to find the name of them for you.

I use my Q-See DVR and I think thats what Addy uses as well. Aquascape camera died due to poor cable quality so got these from Amazon. Had an animal chew thru cable and the company fixed the cable for $30.

Thats awesome! What do you use to capture the video from the camera and send to wifi?
I have it feed into my q-see dvr also, the cam is under the ice right now the lens is getting a bit murky but I can still the fish just fine. I don't let the night lights come on, that really grows the algae. So the picture is black at night. You can download the capture and post it as a u-tube. Or grab stills
I watch the fish on a tv in our living room.

I want the camera to stream live to my website, will the Q-See do that?
Yes I watch live action all of the time. On my phone, on my lappy. We check all the time while traveling around.

Opps just noticed website, I think so, think I read about setting that up, but I have not done it.

If you call this company they might have a cam I bought last year, just now setting it up. On Amazon paid 33 dollars for it.
Well it works, I have had it in a pan of water for a day now, totally water proof. I don't see them on Amazon any more

I bought it then got busy and totally forgot about the cam. Just found the box and set it up yesterday.

Dome Security Camera 1080p Waterproof 30fps 2 MP 4 in 1 Technology AHD/CVI/TVI/Analog Indoor/Outdoor, Vandal Proof Eyeball Fixed Lens 3.6 mm 24 IR LEDs

Sold by: CCTV On Sales



$33.99




Here is the website


this is the picture in a pan of water in the house, need to run a line to the pond, when it warms up a bit.

Will have to follow this Addy. Thats a whole lot cheaper than the ones I ordered. The only thing that concerns me is the rating for weatherproof. Is it rated IP 66 or 68?

Geez let me find where I put the tiny little book down. It sounds like the same company that rebuilt the ones we bought. Came with a small piece of paper saying bought new rebuilt to survive being under water, new sealing new o rings etc. I just had the small book but no clue where I laid it down.

Advance Security is where I got mine and same speech. Bought overseas and completely rebuilt. The biggest difference I found in price is the IP rating. 66 is weather proof, 68 is for long term submersion.

Well I will leave it submerged see what happens. It was redone to be totally water proof. Not just weather proof. The written up description on Amazon is gone.

I tried to fine it but that camera isn't even on their site anymore. I can't understand why these companies come up with cameras that work under water and stop making them unless there has been an issue.

True, but at the price it is a cheap failure if it does fail. I meant to check it out when I got it last summer, but life got in the way. Put the box to the side and forgot about it.

I know what you mean! The one thing is with major ice forming, camera cables as well as lighting cables need to be protected from the ice. Pipe wrap or a low watt heater.

Never even though about wrapping my cam cables, guess if we get a melt I need to put something over the lines. They have never been damaged in all the years I have had them running, but there is always a first time.
