The completed project ran fine from any voltage between 5 and 12 volts, so I decided on a 6 volt battery pack made up of AA batteries as the power supply. The completed rig, including the relay board is shown in Figure 8, connected to the hacked digital camera form a previous project. This system works very well for time lapse photography or as a high resolution security system.



With the camera connected to an external power supply, and a large memory card, an entire day of high resolution image capture can be done. Having the ability to take images at 8 megapixels means that details such as faces and license plates are highly visible, even when the subject is far away from the camera. Compared to a regular video security camera, this system has more than 10 times the clarity, but this is at the trade of frames per second. If high detail long term surveillance is your goal, then this rig will deliver.
