    UPDATE:
    The camera finally arrived after being MIA since last Thursday! I will be installing it this afternoon and should have my feed up this evening. I'm hoping to have a live feed as well as adding time-lapse videos. Below is the camera I bought:

      So naturally, I'm having issues with keeping the camera connected to wifi so I guess let's just say it's going to be a while before I have this thing going again. God I hate my luck!

        Thanks Farmall for letting me know. I'm working on a solution now. I am trying a program called Blue Iris and I think I can broadcast via YouTube Live with it. I'm waiting for my YouTube Live account to become active tomorrow at this time. Until then, I'm creating time lapse videos. I have it set to take a picture every 30 seconds continuously. Once I have a day's worth of clips (2880 total clips) I plan on taking them, compiling them into a video, then uploading that each day. So basically, my goal is to do daily time lapse videos as well as having a live feed that is viewable any time.

          I use blue iris to consolidate my security cameras... works well but not GREAT!.. flexible enough to define areas of target motion, contrast, recording time. For time lapse, I never even tried since the Wyze cam worked so well for me

        For now, here's a photo from the camera.

          Here's a picture from a few minutes ago. I have the connection issue fixed. Just have to figure out how to get the feed back on my computer and I should be up and running again.

              I'm also creating time lapse clips every 30 seconds that I will compile later.

                Hehe. I thought of that too. Probably going to setup a schedule for"dark hours" where I can process the time lapse and also access the grow.

              #25
              So the only drawback that I've noticed to this setup is that I have to keep my computer on all the time. That being the case, I will probably try to build a small inexpensive computer that can handle the processing so that I don't have to leave my powerful gaming PC on all the time. I have a garage full of computers that I've built over the years so I'm sure I can put something together. Until then, I'm just going to keep using what I have.

                Quick update: Today is nutrient change day and I have to build a frame for my net trellis and move the water chiller so I will be taking the camera offline soon but I should be back up and running by this evening. I will post again once I have the feed back up. The link may be different (not sure, I'm new to YouTube Live) but I will update all of that where needed. I am also going to try to do a time lapse video to see how that goes but I can leave my feed up for that. Until then, happy growing!

                  Alright. So the link is a bit different (I will update it everywhere I posted it so any links you see in this thread should be active) but we're back up and running! Made a few changes. First, I moved the chiller to the back of the grow room out of the way. I also ran some new tubing to make it fit back there. You'll also notice that I put a frame in the room. That is for my net trellis but I may end up doing something different. I have some time before the plants are big enough for that so we'll see. Other than that, everything is running as it should. I did a nutrient change earlier when I was doing all the other work so it should be good for a few days. Until next time, happy growing!

                    Nice work ellz got it going on the way you'd hoped ? Was it a lot of editing to link these together for the time lapse ? I BELIEVE...there could be a button in the defaults to switch off the Amcrest logo in the frame...your choice of course

                      I downloaded a program called Virtual Dub. It's free and super easy to use. As for the logo, I have to keep looking for the setting. Other than that, it's going pretty good. Just wish it was hard wired to my network so the quality would be better for the live view.
