Since January 24, 2020 when we have launched our new website
at FoxRVierSystemWebcams.com the viewership has exploded. Our Google Analytics
shows that we have hit 15,000 users today. Each week we add approximately 560
new users per week. The word is getting out about the cameras being on Lake
Winnebago overlooking different areas of it. People login to see the beautiful
sunrises and sunsets. Our picture history
is being used to go back and see the sunrises during different days.
The cameras have loops built into them and move in approximately
an eight minute cycle. This summer it has been trying for the weather and bad
luck have taken out the cameras ability to function. The public can go to
account, register and login to control the cameras for five minutes and see
what they would like to see. It is a learning curve in that the first few
attempts at moving the cameras to see where they go.
To increase viewership we post on other blogs and Facebook and Instagram pages. We have been on WBAY Channel 2 during the weather broadcast with a live image. We are looking to be in Future Neenah Magazine which features Neenah businesses and information about the community. We have been in Neenah Notes a magazine produced by the city of Neenah.
A big thanks goes out to the person who has put in so much time to make this a big success. The Wind Power Weather Center has three operating weather sensors on the lake now: Wind Power– Fond du Lac, Mansur Bay– Neenah and Brighton Beach– Menasha. You can see the Current Conditions, History, Forecast, Highs & Lows, Weather Calendar and Windsock Sessions. The graphs and charts are the current weather on that area of the lake. They intend to install more sensors on the lake but this takes money, you can donate to their project buy following their donate button on their pages.
And thanks for viewing the website and returning every so
often to view the cameras, Thank You.
