Charging a 12volt (about) Lithium Pack from a small Solar Panel

<< < (5/5)

Oh my, thank you; this has much promise.  I wanted to learn Python and Arduino and this could be a good project for that.  2mxp isn't a lot, but for just viewing the weather, it may be and just playing with it it would be fun.  Back to the video.....

I think it's 1600x1200, which really isn't that bad.  There are higher resolution camera options for it, but I think that takes the cost up considerably.

There are a number of Youtube videos on surveillance camera projects using the ESP32-CAM.  I wouldn't be surprised if somebody hasn't already done most of the work for you.  Anyway, it's hard to beat the price.

One thing that I discovered when Googling this is that the ESP32-CAM has a reputation for drawing high peak current.  I think the key to success may be to only do one thing at a time.  Take a picture, then shut down the camera, then fire up wifi to transmit it, then shut down wifi, save to the SD card only after that's all done.
