I was using a laptop with a usb yagi antenna at one end and a linksys wireless router with yagi antenna in repeater mode picking up a local wireless signal and repeating the signal. The equipment was just creating a local area wireless network over the 1 K distance.
The Galaxy tablet has a rather limited range so you would need to be close to the router at your end and another router would be needed to repeat the camera signal at the other end.
Linksys has been acquired by Belkin and is no longer supported by Cisco so another type of router would probably be needed. I had the routers so I just needed to get the antennas but if you were starting with nothing it would be interesting to investigate long distance video cameras perhaps the type farmers use to monitor their cattle. A local farmer can even keep an eye on his cattle in the dark.
Having to buy two quality routers and long distance antennas would probably cost about $600 to $800.
I had mentioned that long distance wifi is possible, not that it would be cheap unless you have the equipment just sitting around as some people do. :D

The new routers that support 802.11ac have up to 4x the range of the N routers. They're not cheap, $200+.
Since the camera can be accessed over a network you could use one router at the cameras max range. The routers coverage would be good but, since the tablet and camera are wireless N you aren't taking advantage of the new tech.

I used to have a PoE (Power over Ethernet) camera at the cottage to watch for snow build up on the roof. If running a Cat5 cable isn't an issue it could be an option.

I still think if you don't have any of the equipment that a FPV system gets you there the cheapest.

What kind of distances are we talking about?

If it's 10m or even 20m, just run a really long cable. Even the USB spec is rated for 30ft cables so you can just use a plain old webcam to a laptop for 10m shooting. A wireless webcam may also work. Or are we looking for excuses to buy more fancy toys? :)

Looks like quite a camera, should be able to run off batteries and has a removable antenna so you could add a high gain antenna. Let us know how you like it, perhaps I need one. :D

I used my ipod at the target (10M) for a camera and viewed it on my iphone beside me. Worked great and I can even record if I choose to. Used wifi since I can get it anywhere inside my house.

I only need this when shooting the pistol with iron sights or a red dot. No need for rifle since the lowest power scope on my rifles is 16X.

Looks good, can't wait for your impressions.
I like excuses to buy fancy toys. :) I guess it depends how far is enough or how over complicated you'd like to make things. :)

Received the Tenvis camera. Have it working wired to the router and shows up on laptop and desktop computers. Need to figure out how to finish the setup to view on tablet.
Nice camera as to picture and software allows snapshots as well as streaming video. Panning around is neat. Will sort it out eventually.....

That looks neat. I use fixed video cameras and I'm always wishing I had pan & tilt. I wonder if my lenses would fit onto that unit. Getting rid of the wires would be nice too :)

OP: Sure hope somebody else gets something out of this.


Yes, I did, J.G.: a brand new working video target monitoring system. Thanks for the tips. I am curious, though as to what kind of "pocket router" you are using.
