    I’ve been volunteered to take care of my sailing clubs website and thought it would be helpful to add a webcam to the website. We use SquareSpace as the service. I think I have a basic sense of the process - need IP camera address, send the data to a server somewhere, then insert that address on the website. Is that how it’s done? Any suggestions or help would be appreciated. I’ve used Amcrest cameras for security in the past and was thinking about using one of those unless there is something better.

    look at ispy (free). hooks up to almost any IP cam and you can feed it to ftp.

    Also, squarespace is pretty limited, just keep that in mind if you start to struggle, it likely is not your fault.
