DIY $27 Outdoor Webcam Enclosure

DIY  Outdoor Webcam Enclosure

Outdoor-Webcam-Parts Alek writes “So I wanted to put a webcam outside to provide imagery of my holiday lights – that’s a whole seperate story onto itself ;-) I ante’d up the big bucks for a decent wireless webcam (Dlink DCS-6620G), but cold weather enclosures all cost $500 or more – they include a heater and blower. So I ended up building my own using $27.34 of parts from Home Depot … and that include the 6″ sewer pipe and (free!) AOL CD cover – yea, no expense was spared on this puppy … but I’m hopeful it will withstand the upcoming Colorado winter”. Link.
