An internet-connected camera which has wifi on board and is so small that it fits in a matchbox, for securing your valuables.
To get a better Wi-Fi range I added an antenna to the ESP32 module using the connector on the module which is again optional.
As a casing for the project, I used an old matchbox to show off its small size!

1. As there is no micro USB port on the ESP32-CAM module hence we add an external USB port using a breakout module for powering the project easily.
2. So I connected the +5V and GND lines of both the modules as shown in the hand-drawn diagram.
3. That's it for the connections! Test by powering up the module and you'll see the white led flash for less than a second.
