Implementation of the new Orpen and Satara webcams has been scheduled for next week - 13 - 15 June.

Please be so kind as to convey our apologies for the delay.


Let us all hold thumbs it goes according to plan and by 16 June we will have both cams up with sharp pics!


Please don't :sniper: the messenger :pray:

Things did not all go according to plan. So it is still a bit of wait for the two new cams to come online. As you could see yesterday, Anton, EBiz's guru was in both Satara and Orpen to work on the new cams, but there is a hitch with the sinking of new steel ellie proof poles.

I'm pretty sure the bluriness is a form of condensation on the camera lens due to the temperature change from day to night at this time of year.
Our front windows at home also get that effect.

An update on the installation of the two new cams (Orpen and Satara):

Two new cameras have been bought for both Orpen and Satara (they will stream live with sound too). The poles for the cameras are installed so the installation of the cameras is next. All they are now waiting for are the termination boxes which are due to arrive later next week. Next will be the installation of the cams.
