Taking Care of Old MacDonald's Farm
GAEC BRACQUART, located in Crequy in northern France, is a farm that houses a herd of 150 cows and provides approximately 600,000 liters of milk each year. The owner of the farm had constantly encountered the need to physically monitor the cows all night, in case the birth cows were in labor. Wanting a way to remotely monitor the herd of cows instead, the farmer sought for a cost-effective solution that would also utilize his existing computer hardware.
The owner contacted Conectis, one of VIVOTEK's distributors, to construct a remote monitoring system with network cameras for the farm. VIVOTEK PZ6122 network cameras were installed in the stable, with the power cord and Ethernet cable lines extended to the farmer's house. The monitoring system, connected to the PZ6122 pan/tilt/zoom network cameras, provides control over the cameras' angular movements and receives superior clear images, even in low light conditions, via real time video transmission.
