WeatherCam online

I hooked up an old analog camera I had laying around (one of the 15!) to an Axis 2400+ video server I bought off of ebay for $40.  A little script that runs every minute and copies a picture from zoneminder to my webhost account.  I added the picture as a widget to this website in the sidebar under the weather station doohickey.   Once I verify the picture quality in the daylight, I’ll add it the weather cams at wunderground.com.

script file: 
#!/bin/sh
wget "http://localhost/zm/cgi-bin/zms?mode=single&monitor=11&user=x&pass=y" -O backyard.jpg


HOST='ftpaddress.briangallimore.com'
USER='username@briangallimore.com'
PASSWD='ftp_password'
FILE='backyard.jpg'

ftp -n $HOST <<END_SCRIPT
quote USER $USER
quote PASS $PASSWD
binary
put $FILE
quit
END_SCRIPT
exit 0
