FarmCam

the farm cam project

This 24-hour camera is in Tunbridge, Vermont and is centered on Killington mountain on the horizon. The image above it the most recent.

Click the image for the popup viewer, which refreshes automatically every 30 seconds.

I appreciate the randomness of a single snapshot. What will it capture? Who will even see it? The image is available only briefly and then it is gone. I hope there was something there that was interesting for your encounter. If not, I hope you return soon.

Gage Hill Crafts Farm is a node for Weather Underground, and the current conditions at the farm are displayed here. We do not currently measure wind speed or rainfall.

A variety of software is used to create the movie.

Individual images captured for the still image above are then turned into a movie, which is compressed, and uploaded at midnight.

How it's all done

Hikvision

This HD outdoor camera is mounted to the house and faces southwest. I use an older Apple Airport Express and a POE adapter to connect it to my wireless network.

EvoCam

This application makes everything so easy. The problem is that they have disappeared and it is no longer apparently being supported. This app takes the 30 second images and uploads them for the still, and makes a daily timelapse from the still.

iMac

The iMac in my office at the house is connected via wireless network to the Hikvision camera.

Automator

Automator makes it easier for me to upload the timelapse movie to the web server, but it also allows me to compress the original file to something more manageable for slower connections.
