Port of South Whidbey surveillance cameras go live

Say cheese next time you visit a Port of South Whidbey boat launch.

Feeds from three surveillance cameras went live on the port’s website Wednesday, Jan. 29. The live streams come from three locations: South Whidbey Harbor, Bush Point and Possession Beach and refreshes about every five seconds. Eight cameras in total were installed throughout port properties.

The project was approved in Sept. 2013 and funded by a FEMA grant of $65,000 to provide surveillance of the properties and waters. The project also aims to help boaters check conditions of the boat launches.

“I’m so excited,” said Port Finance Manager Angi Mozer. “We’ve been working on this project for a while. I’m glad we can put it together for folks who use the facilities.”
