Winter is here. But I'll still keep and eye on things.

While we've been dealing with some very cold temperatures for a while, we just had our first snow (thankfully, only a few inches).  The boat is just about ready for winter as I just need to put the braces up for the enclosure, which I'll do over the next few days.  While I've had temperature sensors running for the past few years, this year I've added a real-time webcam.  Here are some screen shots:

I also installed some lighting so I could see the boat at night:






Hopefully, the dusting of snow will melt off before I have to board her!

Here's the enclosure I put together for the camera.  It was a rush job, but it should do the trick.


Here's the whole setup:  Camera to the left, lights in the middle, and below the lights is the box with all the electrical and the access point.
