I was given an old web camera
and was able to locate software drivers for it on the internet.
Realizing a camera pointing out the window was not the most
practical use of the device, heck I could just as well look out the
window, I decided to do something different and create my own
web site allowing anyone to see what might be happening here in
Ham Lake, Minnesota.
This is a link to my live
camera. Camera updates every 30 seconds between 7:00 AM and
5:00 PM (CT). Since nothing maybe happening on the live
shot, I also have a page that captures
detected motion. In addition to the camera pointing out
the side, another camera is positioned to watch the front and the
bird feeders. Several viewing options are available with this
camera. If you have a slow internet connection I suggest

small video. If you have a
high speed connection give the large
video a try.
