Take a Gander at Wildlife with Your Raspberry Pi: The Gentleman Maker’s Life-Cam!

Courtesy of All About Circuits

Do you have summertime critters and furry friends frolicking around your yard? Have you ever tried to capture them from afar with your cellphone? With the Life-Cam, you can get a little closer without scaring these daily and nightly visitors away.

Utilizing an Arduino Uno and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, you can construct your own automated camera, perfect for securing snapshots of every living thing that moves past your creation. Armed with an IR floodlight, this camera won't frighten those animals with a flash of bright light. The floodlight should only be visible to your camera.

Try it out for yourself!
