    Make Any Meter Wireless?

    http://www.swifthitch.com/brochure11.pdf

    Anybody have a Swift Hitch? Says 300ft wireless range unobstructed. Might be able to add wireless to every meter you already own plus help with servicing stuff by actually seeing something where you are not. The backup camera part would be nice too but I can't justify the price if thats all it can do.

    Features are lacking. It doesn't even offer on-board recording, time-lapse recording or motion triggered recording.

    I fail to see what it does that cheap baby monitor camera from Wal-Mart doesn't.

    A video conference cell phone and a helmet mount might be more useful. You could then have a senior tech in the office who could instruct the entry level tech to turn on the camera and see what he's seeing and instruct him what to do from the office and see everything he's seeing.

    I'll have to check the baby monitors again. I checked a few years ago for something wireless and they were still expensive.

    The iBall looks cheaper but not as portable without a built in battery.

    I thought about the baby monitor route, too.

    Downside, if you use Testo H2, you have to go turn them back on as they shut off.

    Also, not sure how close up you can get.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
