Re: PiKrellCam: motion vector detect + OSD web interface

hi, First of all, thanks a lot billw and all the users that have contributed with ideas for such a powerful software that is Pikrellcam!! Thank you  So, I'm currently building a camera trap using the Pikrellcam on a pi zero W and my power source is a power bank. I want to improve the battery autono...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

Ah great. I will try to figure out if the code could work making a new post in a different section of the forum. Thanks for your help. :) After having everything working properly I will post here the final circuit and the code. Just a last thing, I’m not sure if I understand why do a I need to groun...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

I'm using the power boost to power the IR Lights with 12V using the same power supply that I'm using to feed the Pi but from a different output port. Will be an experiment because probably I'll end up using a different power bank for the IR Lights to increase the system autonomy. Here is the circuit...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

I will use the GPIOzero because looks like it's easier to learn and use. I'm away from my laptop for now I can't show all my circuit diagram. But will be the fusion of both diagrams. From the GPIOZero Docs (https://gpiozero.readthedocs.io/en/stable/recipes.html#motors) the recipe to control de motor...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

Hey pcmanbob , Once again thanks for your reply. :) My reason for using only hardware to control the light system is because I would like to connect as well a RTC and a temperature/humidity sensor and I thought that would be too many things running in the same time and could draw too much power from...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

Hey, Thanks for your reply. I will explain better why my question. I'm building a trail cam with Pi3 + NoIR v2.1 cam with an IR-Cut filter. The cam software I'm using is the PiKrellCam with motion detection to trigger videos or photos. Shoots at night will be illuminate by IR Led that will depend of...

Re: L293D troubleshooting for IR camera cut control

Hi,

Great information. Cheers :)

One question, where would be the best place put a LDR sensor in your circuit?

Thanks.

Pi Photo Trap Camera with motion tracking

Hi, I'm new in the Pi world and I would like start given my first steps building a 3D printed wildlife photo trap camera. I'm aware of the existence of Naturebytes wildlife cam kit, however I would like to make one by myself as a gift to my girlfriend. My ultimate gold is to make a photo trap camera...
