    Back on topic, I swapped the garden camera out and replaced it with a new Power Over Ethernet model like i have at the lakeside. Plus, we moved the location to be up on the peak of the house to get a better angle on things.

    Steve et al, have fun.

    Brad, It looks like you mounted that camera high up near the peak. Did you climb a ladder to get up there?

    Nope - I did not do the climbing, my son did! He used a 30' extension ladder to get up there. The camera is mounted at the end of the log purlin at the peak over the deck. With PoE we just had to string network cable from the basement switch up a copper gutter and under the eaves to the camera. No power is needed outside.

    I have been pleased with the image quality even at 960x480 resolution. When I change the camera to 1280x960 it is wonderful, but it takes a lot of bandwidth. If it was just me accessing the camera I would run at 1280. But, knowing there are others coming at the camera I dropped it down a notch.

    It is really high up there compared to ground level at the wooden swing or the lower level at the campfire.

    Looking at the camera from the campfire.

    Very nice Brad. I'm really going to have to look into one of those (Toshiba) cameras soon.

    That's the first photo I've seen of your place from the lake. I'm used to looking away from the house.

    Steve (FL),

    Here is a more complete outside tour of the property. I will be updating this next summer now that our rock walls and landscaping work is done.

    Steve (Maine),

    My son picked up a small Panasonic web camera to play with and see what they are like. I am not sure where he plans on using it on his property. I do know he will be getting several Toshiba cameras as the main set on the different buildings. He has the old garden camera from my place (was his camera anyway) now that I updated that with the camera up above the deck. Once Time Warner installs his cable service he will at least get that camera running.

    Did you have this house built? If so, was it ordered as a kit off a floor plan you liked? What log home company did you buy from. What brand are those casement windows? Now I know why your still working.

    Yes, we had the house built. My wife and I did the design and then we worked with Alpine Log Homes in Victor, Montana. They provided the engineering drawings and the logs. Our local builder did the rest.

    The windows and doors are from a Canadian company - Donat Flamand. they have since been bought by Jen-Weld. Web site is at http://www.donatflamand.com/jeldwen/...sp?IdSection=0

    The windows are very heavy duty - glass is extra thick - frames are solid wood.

    They sound nice. I'm not surprised that they were bought out by Jeld-Wen. It seems a lot of smaller companies are being bought out by bigger ones. Not necessarily for the better I might add.
