I love this camera, but would like to be able to set it up in other
rooms. I understand that there are limits on how many USB
extensions you can use. Is there such a thing as a wireless USB
port? Or some other solution?

yes... it's called a wireless network camera.

Thanks, but that's a lot more than I'm interested in spending.

Extending USB usually runs about $2/ft at its cheapest from what
I've seen. USB cams are made for grand parents/grand kids, and
nakkkeeed net types that stay at the computers. You should look
into ethernet IP cams or analog cams for longer distances. Below
is a reasonable cost source for analog cams. The ones with Sony
chips are usually have pretty good video quality.

could you use a usb video grabbing device as a webcam with a wireless colour
camera attatched to wireless unit?

that way the limit of the usb is down to the wireless cmaera kits
range...usb isnt the probelm then...

i have wireless cameras that plug into pc using a dvr card...one of these is
a good 100 feet from pc and works well

http://quavis.co.uk/easywebcam.html

thats where it lives....and has worked well for years now..the while set up
was

£ 20 for eachcamera...

£20 for dvr card

and £2 a month for web space...

£17 for uploading software

£119 in total... cheap i say

regards slayer
