Mini spy camera with trigger - picture and video

Want to know what's happening inside your house when you are not there? Is this the dog that hides the remote control? Where the cat did drops your keys? Here is the product that will help you to to prove the devil  intentions of your animals  since this camera is small enough and they wouldn't notice it?
Maybe you want to attach a camera to your  cat to see what she's up to during the day, or making time laps of your day. This tiny camera is great for such purpose!

This Mini Spy Camera provides a high enough resolution to identify what's happening and see poeple. The resolution is 1280x720 pixels when taking photo and 480p when taking video+sound. The controler board is as small as 25mm square and fits a microSD card holder. The camera module size is a small as a cell phone camera (Sized to 6.2mm x 6.2mm, witk stick-on). The stick-on can be used to fix the camera module inside a teddy bear eye, a small hole, a doorbel (anything est if you are creative).

The board fits a power LED and activity LED letting you know what's happening on the module.

This product is easy to use. Wires it as follows:

  • RED wire to power source (3.7V to 5VDC).
  • Black wire to ground.
  • White wire controls the camera.
    • Touch to ground for less than 100ms : Takes picture stored into the PHOTO folder on SD card.
    • Touch the ground for more than 100ms : Start to capture video including sound. Touch again for 500ms to stop.

Photos are stored with the names PIC000.jpg to PIC999.jpg when stored into the PHOTO folder.

The RED led will blink briefly when taking a picture and will stays ON when recording a video clip.

The strength of this module is the simplicity and its good quality (and no overlay on the pictures). It is a great choice to create a micro-timelapse device (a simple microcontroler can be used to pulse the trigger pin (white wire) every 30 secondes. This module can also be mounted on your robot to make a video from the robot point-of-view! The microphone is a medium quality one (sounds buzzy). Keep in mind that this camera will not replace your cellPhone camera (or a goPro).

Please note that microSD or microSDHC must be formatted into FAT32, 32Go max (not exFAT).
Comes with a USB cable for power and data transfer (plug it into a computer and it should shown as a hard drive (otherwise, just use the microSD card to transfert the data).
