    The wired systems have the best picture quality and options. I opted for wireless because my heart wasn't in stringing cable and drilling holes. The Arlo cameras I can put anywhere and the Ring floodlight runs off house power so I just hung it in the existing light fixture junction box above the garage. It has a really bright lighting system that reaches out a long driveway and almost to the street. Plus it has an alarm that I can sound if I don't like what I see.

    Of course cameras won't stop a motivated threat but that and an alarm system, along with hardened entrance ways, will usually force the wannabe's down the street to my neighbors.

    true, we cant stop a motivated person, just slow them down or make it really easier to go somewhere else.
    We got ours after the neighbor had their door pried open on broad daylight.

    Yep, people with bad intent usually will follow the path of least resistance. They see a house with a security system, cameras, and security lights, they will more then likely pick an easier house.

    Don't underestimate Stupidity.
    There were a number of car break-ins around here last month.
    The guy was caught from security cam footage.

    None here. The dogs are not lazy, but sometimes we are and don't check to see what they're barking about. Invariably, it's 4 legged critters they go on about.
    Especially this time of year since Dog hunting season is open.

    I’d be interested in cams that have enough range to cover my fence lines.
    Would they be able to broadcast 400 feet and more to the house?
    I sometimes set my Single game cam around the property to see what pops up on a given night, but constant surveillance would be nice.

    Between motion lights, security camera's, dogs and reinforced entrances my home is a harder target than most. Sure, someone can get in, but between all of the precautions I'm going to hear or see them long before they break a door down or shatter a window.
    "Every personís life is theirs by right. An individualís life can and must belong only to himself, not to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. No one can deny another person their right to their life, nor seize by force what is produced by someone else, because that is stealing their means to sustain their life. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a manís throat and dictate how he must live his life."

    I am not sure about that kind of range but,I have a cam in the back yard that is 65 feet away from the NVR (dvr) I had to use a booster antenna around the side of the garage and had a cam to cover our driveway that was basically aimed at the antenna and used that cam as a repeater,antenna height is your friend.Battery would probably be your best shot RPD.other than that,a hardwire set up possibly,(uses house power for the NVR,and cat 5 cable for a hardwire),I don't know about a range for the cat 5 but I imagine its pretty far)looking at the site,they have a solar powered cam also,got sun?..I got the wireless set-up thru amazon from this company, http://www.hiseeu.com/contact.html this is the contact person for the U.S. technical support,johnny@hiseeu.com (Amazon).look at the site if you want,my antivirus says it is ok.they might be able to cook up something.also,there are other various companies also.its all chines stuff.

    We've got 4 acres, and the back 1+ acre is thick woods. Behind that is my neighbors cow pasture.
    I'd like to know what goes on back there sometimes, mainly coyotes and things like that.

    The house sits 150 feet back from the road, and I wouldn't mind having one on each of the two gates.

    I'm not really worried about home invasion, that kind of thing has never happened around here in the over 20 years we have been here.
    Even in town, population less than 2,000, violent crime is very rare.
    Most crime here is drug related - either sales of, or addicts breaking and entering to steal. Our dogs have kept those buggers away so far, even when several neighbors got hit.

    I'm just curious as to what goes on when no one is looking.
