After having missed the deadline for the nesting season in 2020, I did manage to finish it this time. I got my inspiration about several online tutorials, but in the end, streaming was no option.
I am using a Raspberry Pi Zero and due to our HR++ glazing WiFi reception is iffy at best. Due to this I decided to simply take a picture every 5 minutes, store that locally and upload it to here.
|Raspberry PI Zero||Mini computer that runs it all.|
|Raspberry PI Noir Camera||Camera module without IR filter.|
|LISIPAROI Infrarood LED ring||These IR leds provide light for the pictures.|
|SHTC3 sensor||Sensor for temperature/humidity (inside).|
|DHT22 sensor||Sensor for temperature/humidity (outside).|
|IP65 junctionbox||Somewhat weatherproof enclosure.|
|USB extension cord||10 meter USB extension cord to get 5V where I need it…|
|Misc||Cables and duct-tape!|
All of this runs on a lite version of RaspiOS with a python script that takes a picture every 5 minutes and uploads. If below image isn’t update, please do a page refresh. If it still doesn’t update, something crashed 😉
Some pictures of the build itself.
