The general plan is to install a number of web-cams in the telescope building. This is partly to assist remote working with the telescope (either for tests or truly remote observing) where we want to install some web-cams in the dome, which is mostly a safety issue. However, as we generally have only one person at the telescope at night, who might not be an expert for any problem that might occur, the idea is also to have web-cams in the electronics room, machine room and control room to assist in remote technical support.
