Badger Cam North East England

Infra red garden camera with motion sensing revealing the night time habits of a wide variety of animals.

Weather-Cam Bochum, Western Germany

Tiger CAM, The fattest cat on the Internet

8 Live video lines. Cameras all around my house, including one for my cat. 4 cameras have Pan and Tilt. LED sign Shoutbox. Line 7 (Front Door) cam uses Motion to monitor who goes in and out of the house.

Amthors Garden Cam

Colour CCTV, attached to a cheap BT878 4 input Card (Grandtech or so) with motion on SuSE 9.2. Actually, we have three cams, two CCTV on two cards (for the framerates sake...) and a net based web cam. All with motion 3.2.3, doing snapshots, timelapse and surveillance. To manage this, I've just created some jsp's to maintain the files and a streaming servlet to proxy everything thru port 80 of the web server. And of course, the good old cambozola. When I have some time I'll dig in to that, more then 4 fps is killing my desktop.

Candy-Net Cafe

4 live video cameras (but sometime cam3 or 4 has offline), use 1 card video with chip BT878 4 input (Fly Video EZ) with motion 3.2.9 on Ubuntu 7.10, server spac are Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1500MHz cache size: 256 K, RAM SDRAM133 256 MB, HARDDISK 80 GB x 2, ADSL 2M/512 Kbps, Dynamic DNS (Custom DNS), this system is in the small internet-cafe name "CANDY-NET" in Bangkok THAILAND.

A suburban webcam

Blender Defender

Using a network camera, a computer running Motion, a blender, a strobelight, and some X10 devices, to teach a cat not to eat the plants on the kitchen table. This one is a good laugh.


"Linux video-doorbell" triggered by motion detected near some gates. The moving objects are displayed in "JPG" and "FLV" format. Using a P.C. based on Pentium IV / 1.700 Mhz / 512 MB RAM / Slax Linux / Kernel
