The new John Deere Wi-Fi Camera 100 and John Deere Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera 120W make getting started extremely easy without the need to run new cables. Simply mount the cameras in the desired location, plug into an outlet and pair them to any existing Wi-Fi network. Within minutes, users can view and listen to live or recorded video and audio in stunning HD clarity from any iOS or Android device. Both include the most powerful CMOS imaging sensor on the market for exceptional quality and cutting-edge IR filters for powerful night-vision performance. Built-in Wi-Fi extenders expand existing wireless home network coverage to boost the connection
"These new cameras reflect John Deere's commitment to quality and durability," said Dean Hamke, Category Licensing Manager with John Deere. "The Tend platform literally helps our customer stay linked to the land. There is a sense of security knowing that your family, and your property, are safe and sound."
The cameras are available for both indoor and outdoor applications.
