X10 has this Motion Activated, Color Video Camera that transmits a TV signal ~100' to a device that will turn on your VCR when motion is sensed and record the signal.  

All for $80

If you got one of those 12v VCR's (do any record?) you could drive your lawnmower out there to the field and hook up the VCR and record the action, or take a motor cycle battery and the vcr and do the same thing.....

offer expires 6/5/01 tho

Not a bad price for the setup!

I've used a couple of these cams in a "thief catcher" at my sisters retail store.  They work for that application, but for trail-cam use they probably wouldn't be all that good.  Filed of view is pretty tight, focus is blurry, and color reminds me of all those old soap-operas from the early '70s  on the "color" 13 inch set :)

They need a fair amount of light too.
