Miami Beach Kiteboarders Foundation live stream via Sensr.net
One popular feature we provide with Sensr.net is the ability to embed live streams into any website. At the left is a screenshot of the Miami Beach Kiteboarders Foundation website and their use of the Sensr.net embed widget.
If you have a camera on the Sensr.net site, its easy to do this with your camera. After you log in, hover the mouse over your name in the top right corner of the window. You’ll see a drop down menu named Widgets.
Currently we support two kinds of embed widgets, one that shows the live stream for a single camera, like the Miami Beach camera shown above, and another one that shows a list of your public cameras. You can see both styles on the screenshots below. Read more →
While the MyDlink service will let you view this camera remotely, it doesn’t support any kind of recording or saving of images. That’s where Sensr.net comes in. We’ll save up to a month of archives automatically. This blog post will show you how to setup the DCS-5010L so you can see what happened while you weren’t looking!
I’ll also show you how to configure the camera to push images to the Sensr.net site so you can take advantage of all the cool Sensr.net features like archiving, sharing, and alerting that our site provides.
