During Halloween/2011, one of the three webcams "bricked" - i.e.
stopped working. I mentioned my predicament to my friend Jon Wade who
has been a long-time supporter of the website ... and he decided to
donate a webcam! After some research, we decided on a
Vivotek FD8362 as a reasonably priced webcam with decent image quality.
It shoots HD 1920x1080 and is much, much higher
image quality than the D-Link ... although not in the same league as
my Canon 7D DSLR ;-) It's also designed to be placed outdoors ...
but it is not wireless. The best way to get Ethernet to it was by drilling
a (small) hole in the baseboard in our master bedroom ... so I certainly
was concerned about the WAF - Wife Acceptance Factor. But she said OK!
So it's all set for the Christmas season (HO-HO-HO) and will also Watch my Grass year-around! ;-)
