Use Cam 2 view to keep up with Owlet2, and Cam 1 view to keep up with Owlet 1. We have had a lot of people who are upset about the camera being down. We understand it is hard to accept that we cannot fix this at this time.In 1993, Tennessee passed legislation authorizing private, non-profit groups to organize for “maintaining and enhancing the purposes, programs and functions of the state park system”.These groups, more commonly known as Friends, are concerned citizens who have banded together to assist in protecting, preserving and promoting the beauty and the splendor of their favorite state park.We went out and tried to locate it last night in case it was on the ground, but it didn’t seem to be and we figured it had landed in the canopy of some lower trees.This morning Patty Frothingham and Mary Lambright are out there and found all three owls, all looking just fine.You are the reason we keep this project alive, and we thank you for your ongoing support!We will have a lot of expense this year on replacing equipment, and we may not get many donations with the camera in its current state, so we will do the best we can with the resources we have, and provide you with the best experience we can going forward.
Thank you to all our viewers, and to all our moderators who have stuck it out with us thick and thin.
There is only so much we can do from the ground, and as much as we would love to be able to get the camera running again this season, it doesn’t look like that will be possible.
We do not have a backup camera, or microphone in the tree that we can switch too, and if the current nest camera is able to be repaired it might never be reliable again or may have other long term issues.
We will probably have to replace much of our current equipment next year.
Much of our equipment was installed without standard operating procedure because we are not operating it in standard ways, and we did what we had to too make things work. Every connection to the nest cam from the ground is working just fine. Without being able to have the camera in hand we cannot do further testing to understand what went wrong. This can mean fines of 0,000.00 and imprisonment for 1 year. There may be someone more knowledgeable about the systems we are using, but at this time that wouldn’t really help.
