How to add your webcam to Windy
Join the Windy community and make your webcam available to worldwide audience.
There are 2 options to add a camera to Windy.com, depending on your camera brand, your skills and network options.
Windy servers need permanent access to the latest snapshot (not video) of your webcam using image URL address. To do so, you need to:
- Make camera IP address accessible from the internet:
- Have public IP address for your network
- Set port-forwarding in your router
- Have a supported camera (see below)
- Submit a camera to Windy via this form and wait for approval
You can add views to your webcam during the submission process, they identify what area the webcam captures and will also determine what category and title is assigned to each webcam.
- RoundShot (Switzerland), Fotowebcam (Austria), PanoCloud (Austria), SIETEC engineering (Switzerland), WLAN Netzerktechnik (Austria), Repro Schicker (Switzerland), Cre@Weather (France), Vision-environment (France)
What happens after submission?
Once you submit your webcam application, we will review your webcam and test if downloading data on regular daily basis is possible, therefore it is important to provide us with a correct image URL. Webcam approval usually takes a few days.
If approved, you will be notified about the successful submission and your webcam will go live!

How long does it take to add a camera? At least the approximate time.
Every time I add a new camera, I get an email with no content. Why?

I'm not sure what I am doing wrong but I've spent 5mins so far trying to find the form to add a camera?
Is it not on this page?

i'm a bit disappointed. I saw a link, suggesting we can now add WebCams to Windy. So I spent quite a bit of time tracking down a good WebCam for a small town near me, and filled out the form. When I got to the final part, there was a checkbox to confirm I'm the owner of the WebCams. well I'm not, because it's a publicly available image. So I wasted a bunch of time and couldn't add anything.
It would help if you said right up front that you can only add WebCams that you operate yourself.
