– Then the camera was installed outside of our window. It is powered from 12V power supply within the room. Plan to move to solar array when it proves to be recharging sufficiently.

– Then the idea of configuring WI-Fi router for streaming into Web was tested and appeared to work. The router’s Network Address Translation (NAT) feature was used. The appropriate ‘Getting Started’ page was updated so that key learning would not be lost. Software was prepared based on previous experiments with HTTP streaming.

– There is a resulting stream at the address below. It is also accessible on Windows PC from the Welcome Page of this blog (Live menu item).
