Yard - Cam - The Backyard Web Cam

The Backyard Web Cam

web cam control screen 

The Yard-Cam is fully controllable using zoom, pan and tilt controls,
but it only works with Internet Explorer 6 and above

The address will change periodically, because I don't have a static IP.
I will update this link when necessary:

username: yard
password: yard

but sometimes it can be choppy and sometimes you can't
connect to it at all, due to network problems etc.
