Timer for turning camera off at night Answered
Hello. I have made a solar panel-powered bird box camera, and need a way to switch it off at night.
The 5W/12v solar panel feeds to a rechargeable 12v battery. The 12v battery feeds to a voltage regulator, which then feeds on to a 9v infra-red camera. This set up works well, but the camera is running 24 hours a day. This is draining the battery unnecessarily at night.
Does anyone know if there is something I could make or buy, that would stop power from going to the camera from 10pm to 6am ?
Thanks for your help.
