John Deere introduced two high-definition Wi-Fi video cameras designed to give farmers a live look at their property or machinery that’s stored in barns and garages.
John Deere partnered with Tend, a manufacturer of varying home products, to introduce the John Deere Wi-Fi Camera 100 and John Deere Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera 120W.
To install the camera, a farmer needs to mount it in the desired location, plug it into an outlet and sync it with an existing wireless network. They can then see and hear what’s being broadcast on the camera through apps on Apple and Android devices. And built-in night-vision capabilities allow for monitoring at any time of day.
“These new cameras reflect John Deere’s commitment to quality and durability,” Dean Hamke, category licensing manager with John Deere, said in a release. “The Tend platform literally helps our customer stay linked to the land. There is a sense of security knowing that your family, and your property, are safe and sound.”

The John Deere Wi-Fi Camera 100 is designed for indoor use. It records in 720p HD and can be accessed using the iSecurity+ app on Android and Apple devices. This camera costs about US$99.99 and comes with power adapter, mounting kit and installation guide.
The John Deere Outdoor Wi-Fi Camera 120W will record in multiple types of weather, including temperatures ranging from 4°F (-20°C) to 122°F (50°C). Some features include electronic pan, tilt and zoom from within the iSecurity+ app. This camera costs about US$129.99.
Both cameras feature motion-triggered recording and can alert farmers of any activity. Users can also purchase additional cloud storage.
