Raspberry Pi Trail Camera

This project uses a Raspberry Pi, Camera Module, and a PIR Motion Sensor installed into a small plastic enclosure.

Using a small flexible camera tripod, the camera is placed in a suitable location. A python script checks whether motion has been detected, and triggers the capture of a 40 second video, and still images.

The images are automatically sent by email so that live activity can be monitored.

Videos captured using this Trail Camera can be seen below.

Details of the construction and information on using Python to control the camera can be found here.
