I run a petting zoo and I'd like to have people be able to view the animals remotely through our website. I cant seem to find any cameras that dont just use an app. Any suggestions?

You have a website as I understand your post. (Hog's head logo- correct?)

Overall, you cannot simply just plug in a camera and have the camera' image appear on a webpage.

The camera(s) must be assigned a static IP address, software is needed to capture the image(s) provided by each camera, and then a link to that image must be part of the webpage's code.

You will need some sort of app/code that will take the camera images and make the images available for display on the web page.

Who manages the website? They should certainly be able to create the necessary code.

What make and model camera's? The cameras should include the necessary drivers plus some app to actually view the images.

Here is a starter link:

Google "how to live stream a webcam image on webpage" if you have not already done so.

Otherwise provide more information about the setup and any constraints being imposed.
