Remote target camera

Ok a question for the more techie, having been using electronic targets in F-Class shoots, is there a 'cheapish' wifi security camera that can link directly with a ipad without needing a router or server? This is for my 'home' test range instead of using a spotting scope.

I wish I had that distance! Was looking for something abit cheaper in the lines of an out door wifi security camera. You can swap whip ariels for yagi dirctional quite easy. Was hoping someone on here may have already done it.

Can't recall the make but there's an equivalent or cheaper alternative to the Bullseye. Our serious BP shooter in our club uses a Bullseye (coz the electronic targets don't work with subsonic rounds) and it's far from impressive, in fact damn temperamental often.

that other thread on making one is great, but missed one point...all the commercial ones come with software that capture each shot so you can record each shot and that oyu can run on any smart device like mob ph etc.. The home made ones dont. Only minor consideration

In as much as I am not a great fan of some of Caldwell's gear their long range target cam is getting good reviews.

Have been considering building my own for ages but never seem  to get around to it. Would have been a good winter project.

The Bullseye system is too bloody expensive.
