Introduction: Camera Trap for Wildlife Photography

This is a simple one, it designed to recognize movement and then snap photos.
It has a li-ion battery and an easy USB charging cirquit using the TP4056 module.

So go ahead, get us a grate wildlife photos...

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: List :

220 ohm Resistor
PIR Module
Optocupler
TP4056 li-ion charger module
ON/OFF tuggle switch

Step 2: Diagram

Li-ion battery connected to the TP4056 module wich gives power to the PIR module.
The PIR module output 5v when sensing movement.
The PIR module output is connected through a resistor to an optocupler that closes the circuit of the camera remote connections.

Easy isn't it ?

Step 3: Camera

The camera is pre focused and pre set for the photo, then set the trap and wait for your greate wildlife photo.

    is this connected to the camera by cable and also does it use arduino as the diagram does not make sense otherwise as it would not work

    It does connect the camera by cable.
    There is no need for arduino since the Pir Sensor Module sends 5v each time it sense movement and that all you need for closing the circuit using optocupler.
