Notifies users when a train is going through town
Hosting a Train Alert Camera
Train Alert relies on a network of cameras to detect passing trains.
What is required if I host a camera?
STEP 1: A camera (provided by Train Alert) will be installed on the side of your building which must have a clear view of the railroad tracks. (See example picture.)
STEP 2: A PC (provided by Train Alert and running Train Alert software) will be provided, connected to your local network, and remain inside your building/house.
Will the camera and PCs generate a lot of network traffic?
No. Each passing train sends a single alert over the network. The network traffic generated by Train Alert is negligible.
