We met at Technarium for World Create Day, to hack the first prototypes of the two designs we were considering.
Jauler came up with a nifty code that connects Raspberry Pi to a motion-sensitive house alarm unit and a webcam and captures photos responding to movement, with 1-2 sec delay!
Our code is here: https://github.com/Jauler/CameraTraps
We still need to work out:
1) how to reduce the photo delay
2) a battery and a power saving plan that would be durable enough for hours of observation
by MN is still working on the KeyChain-Arduino version - TBC !
Overall - great progress on World Create Day!!
