^^^ The 15' or so is about what I expected for night viewing. The flood lights help for better images, but then remember the unit was bought a number of years ago and the newer models sold today might be much better. I don't know if you'll see much at 40-50 ft in pitch black with most security units. The overall quality requires HD cameras and DVR unit for what you might want, and the price is much higher for the system.

I viewed the images you sent. They look very good for the way you are using them.

Since I live in the country and have no extra lighting, I may need to spend more for the better night vision. I read some where that that quality of a security camera system is judged on it's ability to see at night.

Thanks for the help.

BTW I noticed in 1 second that those were not taken in Nebraska. Lived here too long.

I’m glad you were able to view the images, and you’re correct. It’s going to be a little more difficult to find a security camera that will do what you need in the rural country environment. I know there are other camera views that are important to have and are different than those of living in the city area. I especially like what you said earlier about the “game camera”. When I was living in the rural area back in Neb the game camera would have come in very handy located on a fence post monitoring the drive to the house and yard area; no electrical power needed and they work very well. Lots of improvements with these devices over the last several years makes things easier to deal with.
