Hi guys, yes we do have timers on lights in cabin and we have changed the camera update rate, have it hosted on another site and changed run time. Last time we charged the generator for 2 days and camera ran for us for 7 days.
Still need to run them 3 days to fully charge system.
The system is run off a satellite, thing is we still need someone to haul up fuel and fill generators if we had an auto start. When grooming program starts we have the operators run them on a regular basis.
Lots of people checking camera, close to 600 yesterday.
As soon as we find a volunteer to go up and run system I will let you know.
I hope it is soon too.
It has been raining hard in town and cooler temps so should be snow at cabin elevation not rain like last wk.
What kind of geny are you running. Is there no way to do auto start on low battery? It's pretty simple depending on your generator. What kind of communication are you running to town to get the signal down. Is it just done over regular cellular? You might be able to add some I/O to do some remote start/stop stuff. We do it out in the patch all the time.
All that has to be done is turn on the timer,Just a question, last year I went up the cabin at least 10 times and coming down late.. I never been able to turn on the lights in the cabin. Is there a special procedure? Nobody there seemed to know either at the time
Thanks for being a huge d!ck. It’s greatly appreciated. I actually could do it real simple and real cheap. Also there’s such things as larger fuel tanks that would last all season. Fill it in the fall last all winter. Just trying to help and put some ideas out there. It’s stupid pr!cks like you that just add to the problem. I am actually on the executive in a small club not far from revelstoke and work my a$s off to make people’s Sledding just a little bit better with little respect from some people so thanks for your stupid unthought out replyFeel free to pack up an autostart gen system and install it if its that easy. I mean, if its done in the oil patch then it should be easy peasy for ya. Take some gas too if ya got some extra room on yer sled. Thx for your time refurbing the cam system.
