Who else has a webcam or IP camera set up?.

I tried a few years ago with an el cheapo IP camera, set up to face in a notherly direction, but it kept stopping and the sun got to it eventually.

Decided recently to try again, so ended up getting an Edimax one from MSY Computers for $99.

I wanted to get one that allows the camera to be viewed without having to log into the camera.

I have it set up facing roughly south west.

Weathercam

Who else has one set up?

I got a bunch of these for $30 each -

Don't pay $100 obviously - cheaper elsewhere.

It's the Chinese version of - https://www.ismartalarm.com/devices/cameras/spot/isa00013.html

Installed custom firmware that gives me RTSP - only local at the moment but next project is to get it on the web. Super cheap solution and I've got N S E and W covered.
Probably not the best long term solution although mine have held up to the elements fine with makeshift weatherproofing.

I'll gather up some links of ones council and such have up.

I think I might buy one of those Ryan. Much more practical than the little Chinese cubes (beware by default they're constantly connecting to Chinese servers transfering data, also susipible to being turned into zombie botnets)

I have a RaspberryPi on my roof with a webcam that runs mjpeg-streamer for weatherwebcam and dump1090 for VirtualRadar.

You can look out the webcam:

I have a Core4 PiII in there now and a better radio for 1090MHz, really need to put a PiCam in there - just have a Logitec thing.

You could get Pi Camkit and then follow the MotionEyeOs tutorial.
