An experiment.


As the level of activity is about to rapidly increase with the imminent hatching of the 3 eggs, I thought it would be a good idea if the live video from the camera was made available.

There is no internet connection in the tower, but I have rigged up a WiFi link which seems to work outside on the Abbey Lawns, but I have not been able to test it with more than one device at a time.

With an internet connection (eg at home), go to the Google Play store (Android) or the App Store (iPad). Search for and install the application called KViewPro.

Now standing in the churchyard between the Abbey and the Gander Lane car park (eg by the copper beech tree), connect to the WiFi network called “Falcons”. The Password is “peregrine”.

Now run the KViewPro application, choose "config" (or "device") and create a new device as follows :-

Device Name = tower
Login Type = IP/DOMAIN
IP Address = 192.168.2.2
Media Port = 9000
User Name = guest
Password = peregrine

As the title of this entry suggests, it's only an experiment, so fingers crossed it actually works, but if it doesn't work reliably (or at all), I might have to think again.... 

The range of a WiFi signal is fairly short, but it seems to work OK on the Abbey Lawns. Also note that the gates are locked each evening.
