Hi Meph68

Thanks for the information! I have confirmed it last night as well after MATTHYS reported it.

It will be addressed soon. We have already ordered (prior to this incident) new high tech LED foodlights for installation at Satara and Orpen waterholes which consume a lot less electricity and emit pure white light which should provide better quality images via the webcams! The order was placed about a week ago. Delivery and installation from the suppliers have to be confirmed.

The current older type floodlight at Satara and Orpen will still be supported and blown bulbs replaced as needed until the new LED floodlights are installed at both sites

Sorry for not replying earlier, but I waited for this morning's feedback, GrannyB.
Electricians have been asked to investigate the webcam's power. Will let you know if/when there is more info available.
