    Update!

    Well, you guys probably thought I was toying with you, since the camera went away after I said I opened it up. Truth is, I found a bad section of cat 5 this weekend. Hopefully this was the problem with my camera going away intermittently. It's back, let's hope it stays!

    It looks like it is running well now. Paul did a nice job of plowing.

    Default I want to do more...

    Hey guys,

    Just joined the forum in search of webcam recommendations. This thread was very informative, nice job.

    I'm a technology junkie, computers, rc aircraft, weather, HAM radio, TIVO, iPhone, iPod, etc...no wonder I'm broke.

    I've had a davis pro 2 for quite some time and have been working at getting it online, www.bocknet.com/wx.htm Still working out the bugs, left-hand banner not up to date, but right side should be accurate. Due to my diverse interests, my website is very lacking, so please hold back the laughter.

    Now I'm getting hooked on getting a better webcam setup. As crude as it is, at least it works, www.bocknet.com click on the webcam link on the left. I can't even remember when I bought this USB creative labs probably $50 cam.

    Steve, yours is great!!! I just paned around your whole yard. That is so cool.

    Brad, your sunrise video on youtube, incredible.

    I want to share the sunrises that come over, oh yeah that would be Kearsarge Mountain.

    Considering my high tech hobbies carry a high price tag, funds have to be allocated wisely. The BL-10 you mentioned seems like a good start. Any suggestions where to find it?

    Thanks again guys great thread.

    John,

    Looks like the BL-10 has been replaced by the BL-111. I just saw one on the shelf at Best Buy for $200. The newer version camera includes a microphone (one way audio) which can be nice.

    I have the BL-C131A inside the cabin. This has a mic built in and it does quite well. I would assume the 111 has the same mic setup.

    I normally go to www.amazon.com and see what they have for prices from them directly or from their partners.

    Thanks Steve, Brad.

    Brad, what cam are you using that you captured the sunrise you posted on youtube? Is that remote controlable, POE, etc...?

    John,
    Amazon still has some 3d party sellers with the BL-C10, but I'd go for the best you can afford. I have a BL-C10 sitting on and connected through a Linksys wireless bridge, but it's a bit of a pain dealing with all the cables. If you can afford a straightforward wireless cam, go for it. Brad's cams are awesome. I'd love to be able to spring for one or two of those.

    John,

    The lake camera is a Toshiba IK-WB15A. This is high resolution - low light - pan/tilt/zoom - Power over Ethernet - no wireless capability. The low light is amazing. We have captured shooting stars a little while ago on it. I watch Orion moving through the sky and watch sunrise every morning - from NC.

    The images from each of the outside cameras get sent to http://public.fotki.com/bradbradstre...in/web_camera/ every 2 minutes for the new ones and every 5 minutes for the old one (the driveway - which is wireless and not PoE). You can get a static image from each one like http://longlake.homeip.net:8004/__live.jpg?&&& for the driveway one.

    The actual lake camera is at http://longlake.homeip.net:8003 and is locked down for the winter to protect it from being moved. It is exposed to the north winds coming down the lake.

    Brad,

    I drove by your place today on the sled. Although I didn't know which place it was. But we had lunch in Harrison and picked up a trail in Naples, so I must have driven by it.

    Is anyone familar with with this technology?

    Does this mean a standard wired camera that has an ac power requirement could be powered with this using PoE?
