Raspberry Pi Infrared Game Camera
About what do you think is the peak current demand of the whole project? I'm wondering if I could power the whole thing using 4 wires in a long ethernet cable to all carry say DC +18V with the - going to ground (or vice-versa) and a step-down transformer for the parts needing lower voltage. Alternatively, maybe I could use something like that to charge a battery that could power the device during peak demand (filming with spotlight).The places I'd want to put the camera are all pretty far from my house (maybe 200') and I'm not comfortable leaving AC 120 running that far for long periods.
