New Bridge Cam Update! 6/14/2021

Update: 6/14/2021

The installation of the new Bridg Cam is complete.  I will be doing some more tweaking with it this week, but, it is fully operational as of today.

Thank you to all who donated and for those who support this channel on an everyday basis.


Update: 6/7/2021

After concerns of limited camera operation in cold weather, I will be switching the Bridge cam upgrade to the same type of camera that is used for the Canal Cam, which is very reliable and of high quality. 

The image quality and compatibility will be better than the present Bridge Cam. This should be a fine upgrade, however, the pan/zoom capability which I had hoped for will not be available.

Thanks for your patience!



Update: 6/4/2021

I have received the new camera intended to replace the Bridge Cam.  During setup and testing this week, I discovered that the additional device used to inject audio and power the camera is not powerful enough to operate the camera in cold weather. I will be having further discussions with the manufacturer next week to see if there are any workarounds for this issue.  

While this camera would work great in this setting, I do not want to install it at the bridge locations if sound cannot be included. 

Sorry for the delay and I will keep you posted when there are further developments.




  1. Thanks for the update on the bridge cam. Yes, like you said Mostly definitely has to have sound. Thanks for all your hard work.

  2. Thanks for the update and use your better judgement as to what is needed and how it should be installed, we love you for what you do, and the respect you show your audience..

  3. Would rather sacrifice ptz then sound anyday, Don't take offense but the bridge cam doesn't really need ptz, that's the perfect close up angle as it is

  4. Very crisp and clear, thank you.

  5. Hi Den:
    Thank you for all of your work! Please send me an address to mail a donation to the CAM cause.
    Best regards, Greg

  6. Is there something different with the server's or something on the new bridge cam? Ever since the change I can no longer view it on my phone. I could before the change and I can still view all of the other cameras but not the bridge cam anymore. Has anyone else had any issues like this? Thank you Dennis for all you do!
