This experiment deals with IP, or INTERNET PROTOCOL based cameras. This means that the cameras use an internet identity for communications. -In this case, the communications involves not only the control of the cameras, but the camera's basic mission to upload pictures to my web host.

NOTE: The images will NOT automatically refresh, or reload on this web page, at this time; You will need to REFRESH (reload) your web browser page to view the latest image. (New images are being uploaded to the host server every 60 to 68 seconds, depending on the individual camera.) If the web page happens to be UPLOADING THE LATEST IMAGE when your computer has loaded this web page, it is sometimes possible that an image is MISSING, or one of the images may be only partially shown. If this happens, just RELOAD the page with your REFRESH or RELOAD button on your web browser. (To view the latest pictures, you will always have to REFRESH this web page from time to time!)
MOST of the web cameras have IR (infared) lighting that is used if the scenes are dark. -As a result, the images will lack color, and will be relatively poor.

If there is an "upload in progress," there may a timing conflict in the uploads from the independent cameras. As a result, one or more of the images may not be shown correctly. (You may see only a small "broken connection" icon in place of the image that is missing.) If this happens, try a REFRESH or RELOAD of this web page. If the image is present, this is as good as it will be at this particular time. Also, if the picture is BLACK, it is most likely simply "dark" out! Also, if it is after dark here, you may just see the REFLECTION of the IR illumination LEDs on the cameras. (-Sorry.)


(1-143) This camera is a temp installation on a tower just North of the house..

The above image is from a Foscam FL8910W camera (cam143)
This is a wireless camera that can be remotely controlled.



(2-142) This camera is outside, positioned so it can monitor our HEAT PUMP, which is suspected as not going to the normal defrost mode correctly. -In this case, the coils that can be seen through the vertical grill, and they may be frost clogged or they may be clear.

The white thing above the heat pump is a piece of styrofoam that will be forced up by the heat pump FAN when this fan is running. As a result, the white styrofoam will raise up and will be in motion; -This action will trigger another app that is recording any actions to my server computer in the shop.

(And from all of this, I will be able to generate a fairly good record of not only the heat pump as it is operating, but if the defrost mode is ever actually successful; -All this as a result of the infrared camera!)

plastic pipes that support the 450 Ohm window-line (feed-line)

One of the four support masts can faintly be seen at the
end of the 450 Ohm line.
