How it works
In the house or office
In the house you need to have an internet connection with a broadband router. The kit is supplied with an Interface Unit (IFU) which is the brain that makes the camera network talk to your mobile phone or computer. The IFU must be plugged into your broadband router. The IFU then has a cable plugged into it that runs up to the wireless transmitter on your house pointing at the shed. The IFU is plugged into the mains and also sends power up to the transmitter over the same cable.
At the shed or farm
At the shed you have a second transmitter that points back to the other one. There is a cable that plugs into this transmtiter and runs down to the Weatherproof Power Supply (WPS). The WPS is plugged into the mains and has ports for up to 3 camers to plug in. Another cable is plugged into one of these ports and runs up to the camera in the roof of the shed. If you have other cameras in the shed these are connected in the same way.
We include the following features with all of our kits…
Power Supply Hub
Waterproof & easy to install
Our power supply hub is fully waterproof and can connect up to 4 cameras or transmitter. It can be daisy chained to add more cameras.Learn more
Our transmitters run our own software that makes it ridiculously easy to set them up and troubleshoot them. They have a range of up to 2 miles.Learn more
Magic IFU Brain
The IFU is the magic source that makes our system work. Plug in your cameras or transmitters and be up and running seconds later!Learn more
How do I view the cameras?

Add some extra cameras?
All of our systems are completely modular and expandable. Whether you need to add a second calving camera in another shed, or want a security camera looking at your gate, its really easy to do with AgriCamera.
Up to 3 cameras can be plugged into the standard outdoor power supply, and 2 cameras can connect to the IFU. If you need more than this, or need to wirelessly connect another shed.. click here!

What about installation?
Its really not very difficult!
All of our kits are designed to be really easy to install. Everything is preconfigured and the cables are all premade, so all you have to do is put the cameras up and plug it all in! The cameras and transmitters just screw to the wall with their included brackets (we even include the screws!). The power supply also screws to the wall and is plugged into the mains. You run cables from each camera / transmitter back down to the power supply.
Finally, you put the transmitter on your house, run the cable down to the IFU and then plug the IFU into your broadband router. That’s it!
To view the camera, you then open your internet browser or mobile phone and type in the license key that came with your camera.
If you really don’t fancy installing the system yourself, we understand that too. We are able to organise the installation of your system no matter where you are in the UK.
Depending on your location and how much of a rush you are in to have the system installed, it will either be fitted by an AgriCamera installer, or by a carefully selected third party engineer who has been trained by us. All of our installaters are fully insured and will do a professional job of the installation – we aren’t in the business of bodging. If any electrical work is required, we can also normally do that at the same time.
For small systems we generally charge a fixed rate of £250.00. If your system is complex or is spread over different buildings, we generally prefer to work on a day rate which seems to be the fairest way to all parties. Our day rate is £250.00 plus expenses.
Finally, we can also work with your preferred installer, and show them how to install it if you have someone suitable in mind.
About the wireless
How far? What if there is something in the way?
How far can the wireless go?
If you have a line of sight between your house and the shed, the answer is around 2 kilometres (ask us if you need to go further). If you don’t have a line of sight, around 100 to 200 metres. The wireless won’t go through the side of a mountain though… tin sheds / buildings are OK.
What if there is no chance of a line of sight?
If you really don’t have a line of sight, it is possible to bounce or ‘dog leg’ the signal off another building.
How do I connect multiple buildings?
Connecting multiple buildings is really easy. You can either connect multiple receivers back to one transmitter if they are within a 60 degree arc of the transmitter, or you can put another transmitter up next to the existing one. You will then need another power supply unit at the second shed to plug your cameras in.
Still not sure?
If you still are not sure whether AgriCamera will be able to do what you need it to, why not give the team a ring and chat it through? We love a challenge!
Alternatively, why not drop the team an email with the form opposite? We look forward to hearing from you!
