Neat project from Andrew Wedgbury at Make.
I recently built a Raspberry Pi-powered night-vision camera to view hedgehogs* and other wildlife in my garden.
(* NOTE: The aim of this project was to photograph hedgehogs in my garden, which is in the UK. According to Wikipedia, there are no species of hedgehog native to North America, which I imagine accounts for most of the Make: audience, but there is nothing in this project that is specific to hedgehogs.)
I used a Raspberry Pi night vision camera – a 5MP infrared camera module with IR LEDs – which is perfect for taking pictures at night, and also works well during the day. I also used a Long-range WiFi dongle with antenna – this allows the device to get a WiFi signal at the end of my garden so I can connect in.
