For matters of privacy protection, not all webcams transmit audio.
Move the mouse within the frame of the live feed and, if you see the sound icon, on the bottom right-hand corner, then the webcam does, in fact, have audio. Click on the volume bars to adjust it.
The webcams, to function, require a power and an internet connection. It may occur that, due to network interventions or maintenance carried out within the facilities that host them, some webcams become unavailable, usually for short periods of time, sometimes for longer.
There is no need to signal this, our system quickly notifies our technical staff.
SkylineWebcams does not maintain archives of images and/or recordings. Time-lapse videos are generated on a day-to-day basis, each video is overwritten with more recent images and, in no case, does the system memorize prior content. The only viewable time-lapse is, therefore, the one published on the site.
No, time-lapse videos cannot be saved, published nor used to create derivative works.
