INCREASING use of motion-activated cameras on outback properties has prompted Leading Sheep to hold a free webinar on their use next month.

The webinar on getting the best from motion-activated cameras on your property will be held on February 8, from 7.35pm Queensland time.

Charleville-based Department of Agriculture and Fisheries sheep and beef extension officer Jed Sommerfield will answer questions on the advantages and disadvantages of various types of cameras, depending on their intended use and the available mobile phone, wifi or NBN coverage.

Mr Sommerfield said motion-activated cameras or becoming more common on properties, from the SD card review variety up to the interactive telemetry cameras able to send images to a mobile phone or computer.

Mr Sommerfield has vast experience using a range of motion activated cameras to collect data on pest and domestic animals, property infrastructure, points of interest and uninvited guests. He said the cameras are being used to monitor watering points, gates and fencelines for breakdowns, traffic/vehicle identification, wild dogs and security.

“They can be used for whatever use you can dream up.”
