Question Got some questions about inside cameras.

Greetings again,

I was watching a blog about traveling with pets and it was mentioned that this couple installed a wireless camera inside the coach so they could keep an eye on their pets. So this is where my questions come from...

I located a bunch of wireless cameras on Amazon but I'm confused as to how they would get the picture to my smartphone. I stay in campgrounds with Wi-Fi so do I need a wireless modem, in which I plug the camera into, so the modem connects to the campgrounds Wi-Fi which would send me the video of my pets? Confused...I am, so that's why I'm inquiring...

Any help would be appreciated....

Yes you need something for the cameras to connect to before your phone would get the images. So you would need a WiFi router that can act as a client to the rv parks wifi. Then your cameras can connect to your wifi router and then you cloud connect to them

Look at using bluetooth connected cameras for your smartphone. This way you are not relying on an outside network.

That only works at a relatively short distance.

I'm not sure I would count on a Campground WiFi for me to see streaming pictures. Typically the WiFi is very limited and many slow down or stop anything streaming. Unless you know the campground and it's wifi capability you may be unhappy with the results.

You can use a Mi-Fi and leave it on in your Coach while you travel. Connect the camera to your MI-Fi and use it as your network.

A Mi-Fi is a mobile hot spot, in other words it is a cellular device that only projects a wireless hot spot for which you can connect your phone, a camera, etc.

I have this one and LOVE it. Its no longer made, but there are newer ones available as well. https://www.verizonwireless.com/inte...ck-mifi-6620l/

MiFi is the term that Verizon uses for their hotspot unit.
