I have an old Sandberg webcam that I want to use as garden webcam connected to my NSLU2 computer. It’s going to be mounted outdoors but the cabinet I bought is too small to house the webcam when the stand is mounted so I removed it from the camera body:
I’m mounting the camera body on a metal angle:
One side of the metal angle is covered with two pieces of double sided adhesive tape and the camera sticks quite well to the metal angle. I don’t want it to roll around in the cabinet:
Now that the camera is locked into position I just need to make a hole for the USB cable and mount the whole thing outside:
It’s actually a plastic box from the supermarket I’m using as cabinet. I’m sure it will protect the webcam sufficiently to get through the winter, and it’s much cheaper than a professional electronics cabinet.
