Educate me. What is D Link and how does it work? :cheers:
Jim, let me see if I can highlight how D-Link works:
1) mydlink.com; you can access your live camera feed from any Internet-connected computer or mobile device, tablet, or smartphone anytime, from the free mydlink.com web page or mobile app.
2) You are all set to see live video feeds or capture pictures.
3) Getting started: a)Connect the camera to your existing Wi-Fi network. b)Run the short installation wizard on your PC. c)Log into mydlink.com to see and hear what's going on in your home in real time - it's that simple!
4) Camera example: DCS-936L HD Wi-Fi Camera
The DCS-936L HD Wi-Fi Camera boasts a wide angle lens that easily captures your entire room, wall-to-wall, in high-quality 720p. Its rotatable head makes ceiling installations easy, and the built-in night vision, motion and sound detection, and a handy mobile app empower you with knowing exactly what is happening, day or night. (haven't found night vision to be good) Lots and lots of camera choices are available. I use older DCS-930L cameras available on eBay for some $30. We have five cameras in our summer home, all accessible all winter long and from anywhere, anytime.

Your existing home (or location) WiFi is the only recurring expense. D-Link sells a multitude of cameras to fit your application needs. Used cameras from eBay can be a bargain. Picture quality is amazing. Click on the photo below I just took of our driveway for an example of photo quality.

Jim, good to see that you guys got out and are ok. if you need me to snap some pictures of your place, let me know.

The wife and I ran down to Harlingen for Harvey, we were one of the lucky ones with just minimal damage to the shingles. we came back Saturday after our wifi enabled thermostat came back on-line told me we had power.

Gas isn't hard to find ... as of yet, in Corpus. I think fuel was redirected to this area for all of the first responders and now is being shifted towards Houston.
I work for HEB Grocery, we had the Ingleside store partially restocked and open by Tuesday. I was told four open top semi trailers of spoiled product was hauled out of this small store. Aransas Pass and Rockport took a little longer to open.

this is a good company to work for. the Butt family donates millions each year and ensures the company continues to care about the community. We've been giving away food, water and ice to people in the hard hit areas. as well as the Disaster Relief Unit that was created after Rita if I remember correctly.

the DRU first went to Victoria, then came down to Rockport and now should be in Houston helping all of the victims there.

Friends, Gene and Nellie Gruender were on the Lex with their Blue Vette down from Missouri.

We lived in Cedar Park till 17 years ago, where the gun range is now on 1431 We sold that 7 ac to the ppl that built that range 2 years ago.

Hopefully we will be on the road back to Corpus in a week or so, waiting until all utilities and medical services are available. So far none are available except Elect. Need water and sewer and medical

Second one claimed by Harvey per FB...
Might be surprised what can be salvaged after a flood. I went down to baton rouge last year after their floods and we resuscitated my buddy's c5. All fluids changed, all modules and connectors dried and regreased. Water was about as high as that picture. Of course our cars are newer and more complex than C5s, different construction, etc. Of course lots of mold killer and steam cleaning too...

Might be...but water looks like it could be over the ECM and definitely could be in where the wires run down the chassis to the rear of the car and to the BCM.
Plus this picture was probably taken, as the water was receding and not at its max point.
