The Uniden App Cam Solo 4G helps farmers keep an eye on their properties.

Rural crime affects many farmers and owners of lifestyle blocks. 

It might be general pilfering, theft of tools or farm bikes or, as recently in Taranaki, about three tonnes of calf milk replacer and rearing pellets.

The Uniden App Cam Solo 4G might be a useful way of keeping an eye on your property, particularly outlying blocks without electricity supply.

The camera comes enabled for mobile connection, using 3, 4, or 5G signals and able to run for 24 hours with a rechargeable battery which can be topped up by a solar panel.

Users will need to install a SIM card, then by a cellphone connection the camera will notify of any activity within its range. At this point the user can ‘go live’ via the Uniden Solo App then see what is happening at the location. Images can be sent to the Cloud or SD storage card for future reference.

The camera has heat and movement sensors which will trigger an alert or notification to the user. The unit also has full audio capability, allowing users to listen to or speak with people at the location.

Alternatively the system can be set to deter loiterers by activating a siren or alarm. 

The camera can also be used for remote monitoring of, say, reservoirs or ponds, cattle yards or lambing sheds.

Waterproof to the IP65 standard, the unit is supplied with a silicon camouflage sleeve for discreet mounting, has a 110-degree field of vision and night vision capability. 

It is offered as a kit with a solar panel for recharging. Price $799 incl. GST.
