Anyone who own an action camera will realise that WiFi does not work underwater! This may not be a problem if you are simply filming the family on holiday however it does raise huge issues with controlling and monitoring the camera if you are working from the surface. CamDo Solutions underwater WiFi cablesallow users to do exactly that!
These Underwater WiFi cables are designed to connect to any camera or camera housing that is fitted with a GoPro mount. The cable features a transmitter / receiver box at each end of the cable which must be positioned in close proximity to the camera and iPhone / iPad / Android / etc on the surface. The cable is designed to work at 2.4GHz so you should ensure that the camera WiFi is set to this frequency or the system will not work. The cables are available in four lengths of 7, 15, 38 and 90 metres and feature a connector at the dry end to enable you to pass the cable through a bulkhead. When the system is set up you can view the image from the camera and control it in exactly the same way you can when using the WiFi on the surface.
The depth that the system can operate is only restricted by the waterproof capability of the camera or housing. Working a depths greater than 10 metres is challenging and will require more specialist equipment such as a dive housing for the camera. You should also bear in mind that water absorbs up to 50% of visible light in the first 10 metres. SeeSense offer a light which is waterproof to a depth 10 metres, the same depth an un-housed GoPro Hero9 can operate.
SeeSense has already supplied these cables for a very wide range of underwater applications.
