Cellar cam – live demo for FireFox or Chrome browsers
If you use a FireFox or Chrome browser feel free to have a play with my Foscam FI8918W cellar cam from this page.
Normally the cellar is unlit although a limited amount of sunlight comes through the small window behind the webcam.
IR views are black and white.
When daylight is available or the cellar lighting is on there will be a colour picture.
Any colour may be rather washed out if the light level is too low to automatically turn off the IR LEDs.
As the video streaming uses a considerable portion of my home upstream bandwidth I have to limit visitor access time and the only way I can do that is by imbedding the camera stream in my own webpage. Unfortunately I can only embed the stream for browsers which support the camera “server push” mode and this page will not work for Internet Explorer.
If you want more than one test that’s OK
but I’m well aware it is easy enough to hack into the camera for unlimited access time or indeed to screw up the settings – I’ll just ask you nicely not to do that or I’ll have to block access to it entirely which would be a shame.
In the meantime abuses have forced me to limit upstream bandwidth for this camera.
Sorry but repeated abuse of this facility has forced me to remove the demo
