Outdoor Security System - Equestrian Property Surveillance
This client lives in rural area with a large property designed to raise show horses. It goes without saying there is a large investment of not only money but time and resources that goes into breeding, raising and showing these animals. A pregnant mare, a newborn foal, even the large quantities of expensive alfalfa that must be on hand at all times, must be kept under constant surveillance.
The client wants to be able to keep an eye on her prize winning horses. Whether it be a bump in the night or a trip out of the country knowing her animals are safe and being properly cared for is top priority.

It's waterproof, it can see in the darkest night thanks to a built-in radiant IR subsystem, and it has vandal resistant features that protect it from common abuse.
- ECL-580 camera w/IR and Varifocal lens
Along with very high resolution video, and a 2.8-12mm varifocal lens that can be adjusted using external controls, this camera boasts superior color reproduction provided by the Sony EXview video sensor and Effio video processor chipset.
- Wirepath Surveillance 4 Channel DVR (Digital Video Recorder)
The WPS-100-DVR-4CH is the most advanced DVR in its class, offering unsurpassed technology, features and easy-to-use remote access from a Windows Computer,iPhone or Android device. With H.264 compression, you can record the highest quality, full D1 video on all four channels to the built-in 500GB hard drive -- or maximize recording time with space-efficient CIF resolution.

Eclipse’s high resolution, day/night cameras with wide dynamic range functions, to compensate for bright outdoor lighting contrasted against horses lounging in a shaded stall, coupled with SnapAV’s 4 channel DVR satisfied the clients need for 24 hour surveillance with onsite and offsite viewing. SnapAV offers free DDNS Service (Dynamic Domain Name System) for offsite viewing but also a free smart phone app with full control of your DVR.
