    Here is a project i have just finnished for my A-Level systems and control project. It's main use is for capturing images of animals it woodland or your garden. It had 18 infrared LED's which work perfectly with the raspberry pi noir camera. It uses a PIR sensor to trigger it and also monitor's and records the temperature with a Dallas digital temperature sensor. I would like to here want you think of my project. Thankyou

    see pictures on my facebook page:

    Nice project.

    Where do the images go? Onboard SD card?...Wireless transmission?
    How is it powered? How long does the battery last?
    Are the IR LEDs always on, or do they only come on when the PIR sensor triggers them?
    Are any animals deterred by the IR light?

    The images go to internal storage, it is powered by large lead acid battery and it also has a solar panel which can be mounted to a tree. The infrared LED are of wave length 940nm so they are not visable by animals but are to the camera. Thanks
