For the first five years I used the 3Com Home Connect / Inside Out Networks Watchport V which worked in near total darkness and had a good quality picture but there's no driver update. After two more years using the Apple iSight webcam which was very low quality, I then used a Logitech® Quickcam® Vision Pro which had a much sharper image than the iSight although the night images were very dark. I'm now using a Logitech C930e which has a wider angle of view and better low light performance although it's still nowhere near as good as the old 3Com. Software is the excellent EvoCam from www.evological.com which seems to have disappeared.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, the webcam had to be moved from its old location on 15th March 2007.
This view is being adjusted to include the twin KIO Towers.
