    Most of what I've read about Foscam is not very comforting, e.g.:
    http://www.amazon.com/Foscam-FI9805W-Me ... B00GT1423A
    I don't own one though, so... :?

    There is not much out there for that type of money......
    unless someone knows of one.......

    I currently have WUnderground capture the camera image when they "feel like it" Yes, it's not to reliable.

    So, still searching what options are out there.

    TimeCam.TV is Not an additional expense I want to take on atm.

    Other than having visitors flood my IP (cam) taking up all the bandwidth I'm stuck, and confused too.

    I solved my creating time lapse problem.
    I created my own script and the foscam cam is brilliant, it take a still every x seconds to my ftp NAS drive and my Script do the rest. Mine also on weather underground, but they do a shocking job!!

    Also from what I hear SebecTec webcam with time-lapse software is pretty good and has a trial version to try it out.

    That's what I'm talking about ! NICE* Could stare at the clouds rolling in for hours (ok 2 minutes)

    I'm nowhere near that talented to be writing any type of scripts!

    I though I looked into SebecTec before going to WU?? years back.. I'll have to revisit it.
