Talking Views of the Monitor?

I sat in my tv running the engine. No problem. Then I drove from my backyard to the front of my house, unhitched. I had a signal almost to the street in front, with my house between me and my AS.

Can you provide pictures or a YouTube video of the monitor in varying light conditions. I know that is asking for a lot, but it would be helpful.

As an aside, I have one of these cameras in my home basement for security purposes and it hasn't been turned off in 2+ years. Same with my home router. I'm able to monitor whether someone should attempt to break in through the basement door. If so, I get an alarm and video to both my iPhone and PC.
Fred,

I planned to install a router inside the trailer so my iPhone and Apple TV can communicate and stream (I have unlimited cellular data on Sprint) to the HDTV I plan to install. Wouldn't your router be able to perform both functions?

Caroyl,

I provided a more in depth reply in my response to your email, but just to summarize here, only smartphones have the processor speed needed to provide a low latency (lag time) real time wireless image. The system is a LAN so there is no cellular data used and therefore no operating cost. The router we provide is dedicated to the camera system with special proprietary configuration so no, it can't be used for other applications.

Thanks for your interest in our system.

I could not bring myself to drill holes and mount on the end cap, though it would have been the cleanest installation. So I used aluminum angle trim and drilled one hole in the rear window gutter edge plus double sided tape to secure the trim. I then mounted the Voyager Wireless camera to the channel. The power cord is run down the edge of the window mount and is connected to the rear license plate light via a two-wire connector.
Not the cleanest, but one I can live with for now. The technology changes and something else may come along that would replace the Voyager.

Precisely the reason I took the route I took-
Now, I have a camera that works intermittently-
I wonder if there is a signal strength repeater-
My camera is mounted to the license plate bracket, and the wireless transmitter is behind the headboard. I find I get a slightly more consistent picture if I throw all the pillows on the floor-
The advertised 250' range is with nothing in the way- no bedding, curtains, furniture, walls-
I have since purchased a baby monitor to use as a rear view camera. Its signal reaches further.

The Voyager works great; we went on a 2800 mile trip in September and it did its job. always a good signal, though I did have to fine tune the antenna angle on the monitor. Once it was in place, no issues.

I liked the fact that I could monitor the bike rack and traffic behind me while in transit.

Maybe I'll get a Voyager at Jackson Center one day. Then it will be them drilling holes in my trailer-

I have yet to have an issue with our Voyager camera. It has worked perfectly since day one.

Can you open your rear window? Did you use a rivet for mounting the angle bracket to the window trim?

I used a metal screw but a rivet would work as well. maybe better than the screw. I do not have problem opening the window. I thought there was the possibility but no, not an issue.

Installed a Voyager above the rear window of the 31' Classic and took power from the reading light over the street side twin bed with an on/off switch so it is not on all the time. Similar install on our 23D.

RV Rearview Camera installed and operating. I hooked it into the little light over the bed complete with its own switch and LED. Establishing the IPhone connection was a bit tricky for me but there was a kid around so it was done in jig time. Jim

I copied this from a previous post in "what did you get for your trailer today".

The inside installation has really performed well. The router sits up front in the cupboard next to the radio.

EsiCam EH05

Has anyone had any experience with the EsiCam product?

http://www.amazon.com/EsiCam-Portabl.../dp/B0188CGMWG

Appears to have good reviews on Amazon.

I'm curious about it too. The reviews on Amazon seem a bit suspect if you look closely, so I'd like to hear from someone here that has tried it.
