Video Cameras in Crabitats

PostAuthor: LeeHasCrabs » Sat Sep 08, 2018 4:41 pm

Based on an offshoot conversation in another thread, I’m curious and want to start a discussion about placing live feed video cameras in crabitats. It’s a fun idea and it looks like some have already done it. Please share best practices and setups here!

I have a WyzeCam and the 360 Camera. I now prefer the 360 because it's easier, imo, to maneuver it and set it up. But I can't see crabbing without it. I get to see what works for them or doesn't. And of course all their antics. You can subscribe to my youtube channel. Cheryl Cochrane.

Where did you get it? ( sry I’m basically camera illiterate lol) and how do you have it mounted? I watched your videos and I love it! I always seem to freak mine out no matter how careful I am approaching and flicking on a tiny flashlight out of the way.

Looking at the Wyze cam tonight and was wondering if anyone has had issues with humidity fogging up the lens?

I got a Wyze Cam today. Excited to see how it holds up. I’m still concerned about the moisture and humidity but for $25 it’s worth a shot.

I know! Isn't it great?? I love my cameras. Opens a whole new world of crabbing. How did you set yours up?

It really does! I used the adhesive that was included to mount the magnet in the front-right corner of the tank.
