For the folks from out of town, I’ve set up public access for my webcam.  Here’s a live shot of Snowpocalypse 2011:

I really like these little webcams for the price – under $100 from Amazon.  They’ve served me well over the last year.  We originally bought ’em to watch our dog Ernie when we went on vacation and to make sure our dogsitter was coming at the right times.  The features include:

  • WiFi or wired Ethernet support
  • Motorized pan & tilt
  • Automatically switches to infrared at night (and the night vision, though black & white, works surprisingly well)
  • Streams live video AND works with iPhones & iPads!  We watched Ernie from the cruise ship in Alaska.
  • Motion detection – can automatically upload images to an FTP server when things move in the frame
