I am looking to permanently place a micro camera in a roundhouse I'm building. It's an 8 stall with a firewall so I would get 2 of them and place them in the back corners to watch the engines move in and out. I'd like to try something simple like a usb plug and play set-up. Are there any US distributors for something like this? I see a number of them on Ebay, but all are from China. I don't want anything bulky like a usb webcam. but something I can tuck into the corner, and fab-up a scale looking storage cabinet to hide it in. Has anyone tried this?

Thanks,
Eric

After looking into it a bit something like this from Arducam would work well. Plug and play usb and with a free security camera software program you can view both cameras on a laptop simultaneously. So far in researching this stuff there seems to be a field of view (FOV) limitation with the camera that can also focus in on objects that are closer. If you want a FOV that is 90 degrees or above, which is preferable for a corner location in the roundhouse to view all the engine stalls, the focus is limited to objects 1 meter and out. They have a camera that will do a 76 degree FOV and focus on objects just a few inches away.
