webcam-2 Mircosoft 3000 800x600 looking West
webcam-3 Logitech C-110 640x480 looking Southwest
webcam-4 Logitech C-270 800x600 looking East
webcam-5 is some China Junk at I paid $6.00 total to be shipped from china. 640x480

Software is ContaCam
Overlay software is Multifunction Image Handler PHP Script by Mike Challis . Also use Weather Web Cam Images History PHP Script.
