This time lapse thing is pretty cool. I finally got iSpy (link above) to work. and figured out how to do most of what I want. I still like SkyStudio Pro for the time lapse though.
I am leaving on a 5 day fishing trip in the morning, and I wanted to be able to monitor things while Im gone. I downloaded the Chrome Remote Desktop app to my android phone. I can use that to switch between the two programs, look at (never mind), and monitor the webcam while Im gone. Its not perfect, but it works.
The main problem I am having with this whole thing is getting my webcam far enough away/up to see my whole growing area at the same time. The cam Im using just doesnt have a wide enough field of view. Ive mounted it as hi as I can get it but it needs to go all the way to the very top of my tent. Unfortunately, my light fixture then blocks most of the view. Im not going to buy a new webcam right now so this will have to do.
The other thing I discovered is - dont mess with the cam after you place it some where! LOL I have some of the jumpiest footage from the first few days cause by me making adjustments to the camera position from time to time or just bumping it. Hopefully I will have a nice smooth movie to show off after I get back
