Shetland Webcams has come a long way since our successful original RedEye Crowdfunding Campaign ended in May 2018.
Thanks to that initial support we have managed to replace and repair cameras at popular locations and also add the new Harbour camera. It is unlikely another crowdfunding campaign will ever be undertaken as this is not a sustainable way to maintain this platform however I continually get asked how people can make donations and until now there has not been an easy way to do this. Some users have requested one-off donations and some regular payments so it has been a challenge to find the most appropriate model that can work in a flexible manner whilst allowing some forward planning.
From 1st Februay 2022:
For those making a one-time donation
- For every one-time donation of £10 = 30 days of RedEye
- For every one-time donation of £25 = 30 days of RedEye+
For those wishing to setup a monthly donation
- For monthly donation of £5 = RedEye perpetual membership
- For monthly donation of £10 = RedEye+ perpetual membership
In keeping with the original campaign model all donations are cumulative so once your donations have reached the appropriate tier level then no further contributions are needed, and you will have attained life membership.
Contact REDEYE donations by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or if something is not working correctly.
In simple terms the network running costs will need to be supported through commercial advertising and sponsorship opportunities however the donations will be used to support new locations, projects and maintenance costs.
To keep things as simple as possible;
RedEye membership will provide ONE additional camera plus ambient sound (as we roll this out across the current network) plus you will receive your streams from a dedicated media server platform.
RedEye+ has all the benefits of the RedEye membership but we are going to provide access to THREE new channels that will not be available to the public and some additional DVR (rewind) streams.
Thanks to everyone who supports us through donations as it is you who will make new things happen.
