    Re: looking for a weather cam for extreme cold weather..

    Raspberry Pi and camera module from Newark, the rest from eBay. I just checked the Newark web site and they have a Raspberry Pi 8GB Bundle (Pi plus SD card) for $40 and the camera module for $25, which are exactly the prices I mentioned. Can I ask you what you are using for broadcasting? I got the ...

    Re: cold weather wiring

    I think your unit may be broken. I'm running a 1080 just down the road from you in Whitehorse, and have had absolutely no issues at -40 with lithiums. Even alkalines are fine to about 30' at those temps. I'm also running a custom built station that initially had issues with temperatures below about...

    Re: cold weather wiring

    Hi, Yes, the general wisdom is that most types of battery cease to work well (or at all) below -20 degrees C (-4F). However, there is at least one exception, Lithium Primary (non-rechargeable) AA cells, which deliver a stable voltage (~1.6 each) down to much lower temperatures. There are several po...

    Here is my low cost solution: Raspberry PI computer ($35), camera module ($25), powered USB hub ($7), SD card ($5), USB wireless adapter ($10), all put into a wooden “cigar box” with a tiny hole cut for the lens. It is installed on my top balcony against a window. The heat generated by the Raspberr...

    Re: cold weather wiring

    Thanks Alan The batteries don't last very long up here after -10 so I ran wires into that area, best I can tell talking to local electricians is the speaker wire doesn't have enough insulation. So when it warms up above zero, I will pull everything and go to an outside extension cord, and use the tw...

    looking for a weather cam for extreme cold weather..

    Okay I am new to all this but I have my weather station up and running, next thing I want to do, is put up a weather cam. First off, we have -25 - -50 in the winter for weather. Second thing was going to put it up on the roof with the weather station. So probably a wireless cam? If not I could put a...

    Re: Local Web Server

    An alternative approach, I don't run toolbox and do it all with a combination of Cumulus, batch files, and for a second public website, ftp run in the same batch files. 1. set up Cumulus to process the files (but not send them anywhere if you are working entirely locally). 2. set up a folder in c:\...
