The latest camera is a Q-See QSC48030 Weatherproof CCD Camera w/80ft of Night Vision. This camera is facing in a westerly direction. The night image is good and shows quite a distance. We use this camera to capture some of the wildlife that comes through at all times of day and night. During the winter months, you may see wild turkeys coming through in the morning and evening hours. A motion sensor records short movies.
As mentioned above, we also have a weather station. I am using an Oregon Scientific WMR968 weather station. I use a MacBook Pro to run Weather Display software. Wireless sensors provide temperature, barometric pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction, as well as rainfall. They are all powered by solar cells backed up with batteries. The sensors transmit every few seconds to the base unit which is connected to the PC via a Serial to USB converter. All this is uploaded to provide real-time updating to that site.
That pretty much sums it up. Just a bunch of stuff connected together along with a server to upload these pages to. This is all done as a hobby. No training in website development, just the drive to do stuff. If you enjoy this site, please use the contact form and let me know. A word of encouragement can be enough for me to know it's all worthwhile and keep me going.
