Barko RVT (Remote Viewing Tower)

Barko RVT (Remote Viewing Tower)

The Barko Remote Viewing Tower is a complete remote security solution with a simple, coherent setup and installation process. We provide all the information and support you need to get your RVT up and running quickly and efficiently.

Delivered to your address on a securely wrapped pallet. The RVT comprises three main sections: A 200-watt solar panel, a Tilt Pan Zoom 5 megapixel camera, a control box, and a five-meter collapsible tower.

Assembly is quick and logical. Once you have chosen the most optimal location for your camera, a concrete base is poured; the control box, camera and solar panel are fitted to the tower, and the structure then swings up and is locked into position. Guy wires come with the kit and are recommended for extra stability.

We supply written instructions complete with photos, a setup video and any further assistance and support you need from our friendly and helpful team.

The ultimate farm security solution

The Barko RVT is a sophisticated farm security and management tool, with great flexibility and a range of applications. The NSW Farm Crime Security Assessment team recommends a video security system that covers farm assets and is monitored back to a smartphone or computer – the Barko RVT does all of this and more. It checks all of the boxes, giving property owners powerful, effective and user-friendly outdoor security technology wherever it’s needed.

The camera will run for a week in cloudy conditions just on the powerful AGM battery and regain full charge quickly once the sun hits the 200 watt solar panel.

See for miles, or zoom in and read a rain gauge

At five meters high, the Barko Remote Viewing Tower allows you to see for up to a kilometer in any direction, and then zoom in on the smallest of details. Stock, fences, water troughs and tanks can all be watched over from the comfort of your home or office, saving time, money and worry. Homes, buildings and machinery can be under constant video surveillance.

Rugged construction and intelligent design mean that the RVT is very low maintenance- once it’s set up and running, the system requires little attention.

A few words from our customers

“I own a property on the Mid North Coast of NSW but am not living there at the moment and commute a couple of times a week. I have a lot of assets on the property and am also building a house. I wanted to get a security system installed and tried a trail camera setup, but it just wasn’t that great for my needs. I saw the Barko RVT advertised in a Small Farming magazine and decided to give it a go.

I have had the system up and running for over a year now, and I’m pretty happy with it. Set up was easy, and there were good “how to’s” that made the process painless. We had a few teething issues with the battery, but the Barko team were very responsive and sorted it out straight away. The camera is excellent – the live 360-degree view and zoom features let me see most of the property for up to about a kilometer in any direction. The visual is crystal clear, and the night vision works very well.

The continual recording and SMS alerts are vital – with trades and deliveries coming and going all the time, I can check who turns up and when from wherever I am and can even talk to my contractors over the two-way radio built into the RVT. Overall, my experience with the RVT has been very positive. It’s easy to set up and use, the customer support has been excellent. Not being on-site a lot was once a genuine concern – both for security and managing a build. Now, I can manage the property and the construction remotely when I’m busy with other work. I have been recommending the Barko RVT to my mates – it does what it promises and does it well.”
