Shown below is the equipment we are using to broadcast the live camera stream shown on the home page and live chat page of this website. Due to our rural location and our love of nature our only option for high-speed internet service is cellular or wireless. This set up without using a relay service can support up to 20 viewers at one time. With a relay service we could support up to 1000 or more viewers at one time. Currently, we are not utilizing a relay service due to the high cost. It took a lot of patience and time to get it all to work as we intended without any technical support from outside companies. We did however, get some moral support and encouragement from other webmasters with similar websites. Our intention was to broadcast the live camera view on to our website without a private or “free” relay service in which we have succeeded.
We hope you enjoy our website.
