State of the Harbor Cams 03/15/2022

 As we enter a new season with fifteen cameras to view, my hope is that everyone will be able to have a window to the harbor that is better than ever.  My plan is to upgrade each camera every five years which means an upgrade of three cameras a year. 

In 2022, we have replaced the Wisconsin Point Cam (still waiting for power to be restored) and installed the AMI Connors Point Cam.  I plan on upgrading two more cameras this year, the Great Lakes Aquarium cam (GLA) and Two Harbors Depot as these are now the oldest on the system.  GLA cam is scheduled for June and Two Harbors after that.

Of course, there will always be breakdowns and failures, but, with the 5-year upgrade cycle, I hope to stay ahead of most unplanned trouble.

Enjoy the 2022 Season!

  5. We SO appreciate the work you put into maintaining your network of webcams, Den! The latest addition of 'AMI cam' now gives us a view of what goes on around that corner from the harbor's "gas station" that we see from 'harbor cam' and that I, along with countless others, have wanted to see for quite some time. THANK YOU!

  12. Thank you so much for your hard work. We log in most every day and spend time just watching the beautiful boats. We spend alot of time in SSM and the boats are a main reason we go. So when we are home, this is a great way to keep track of them.
