Continuing with our close support of the Nest Wireless Webcams Vision Networks have now developed an intergrated Facebook App to allow facebook users to add the Guernsey cameras and view 4 cameras Webcam feeds simultaneously.
The majority of cameras are supplied and maintained by Nest Wireless who allow Vision Networks access to their server to develop live Webcam Intergration. Camera feeds from Herm Island have also now been added.
The Facebook application was written to demonstrate integration possibilities with the Facebook SDK and third party user interface. The application uses the following calls and functions :
Facebook User ID
Facebook Login Status
Facebook like button and comments
Facebook invite a friend to share the application
Integration allows us the benefits of reaching a new audience through social media and also gives tracking of the users that deploy the application and will hopefully provide information on demographics as well as user numbers and use of the Facebook feedback from comments and the built in Facebook 'contact the developer' links.
The Webcam app works with the users Facebook login ID, the page can be viewed by everyone but only logged in users who have accpeted the application can see and change the camera feeds from the drop down menus. If you use or like our Facebook Apps your details may appear below but will only display to you and your facebook friends. Your can change how we share this information in your Facebook user account settings.
App now includes weather reports from weather.gg and METAR weather data for the 3 Channel Islands Airports.
