Sunrise/ sunset wake up - Sleepypi or alt. and battery life

Hello, I am attempting to make an infra-red (IR) webcam for recording bats emerging from crevices in trees. So far I have wired up a pi zero with an IR camera, an IR CREE torch and a PIR motion sensor. I have coded the pi so that when motion is detected a video is created which contains the past 10 ...

My code is all working but last night a LED board I was using (a brightpi) started smoking and no longer works. I need to be conservative with battery as my pi is going to be up a tree. I was thinking it might ...
